Actress Naya Rivera Files for Divorce from Husband Ryan Dorsey… Again!

It’s over! Naya Rivera has filed for divorce from her husband, Ryan Dorsey, for the second time.

This comes after she was arrested for allegedly hitting her husband of more than three years about two weeks ago.

According to documents obtained by The Blast, the former Glee star filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, just over a week after the actress was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after she allegedly hit Dorsey while taking their son for a walk at the end of November.

Court documents also reveals that Rivera, 30, cites “irreconcilable differences” and lists the separation date as November 24.

She has requested joint legal and physical custody of the pair’s 27-month-old son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, and asked that the court terminate both side’s ability to get spousal support.

On Nov. 25, Dorsey called 911 about Rivera’s “out of control” behavior and requested that a police officer be dispatched to the scene.

“I just need a police officer. My wife’s out of control,”

Dorsey said in his call to police, which was obtained by TMZ.

During the phone call, Dorsey confirmed to the officer that Rivera was “getting physical” and said that no weapons were present. She was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.

On Nov. 28, Dorsey addressed the incident in a statement on Twitter:

“This is a difficult time for everyone in the family especially for Naya and I. This isn’t some reality show, this is our life, and I ask that everyone especially ‘the media’ please respect our privacy and treat us/this situation how you would want a loved one to be treated.

Perhaps with kindness, respect, without judgment, and as negative a situation this is, with positivity and love. Thanks. -RD”

Rivera first filed for divorce from Dorsey in November 2016, but in early October, it was reported that the actress filed a request for dismissal of the divorce paperwork (read here).

“It is what it is, but I’m glad that my family is together,” she told PEOPLE, adding that it was “a personal decision.”

Dorsey, 34, and Rivera wed in July 2014, just three months after her engagement to rapper Big Sean hit the rock. In September 2015, Dorsey and Rivera welcomed their first child.
