Us Weekly said Nash filed legal documents at Stanley Mosk Courthouse. The case is listed as "dissolution without minor children," according to the filing.

Nash and Tucker announced their split in a joint statement on Instagram in October after more than eight years of marriage.

"We believe in the beauty of truth. Always have. Our truth is that in this season of our lives, we are better friends than partners in marriage," the pair said.

"Our union was such a gorgeous ride. And as we go our separate ways now, we feel fortunate for the love we share -- present tense," they added. "Thank you all out there for your support of us as a couple over the last eight years. We are grateful."
