Things have been a bit tough, to say the least, for Josh Brolin lately. He’s currently in rehab for alcohol and drug addiction, and on top of that, his divorce from wife Diane Lane has been finalized while he’s in treatment. Obviously this won’t have been a surprise or anything – they officially split up in February after eight years of marriage (Lane initiated the divorce proceedings).
Here’s the scoop from TMZ:
Josh Brolin and Diane Lane are officially divorced … this according to court documents obtained by TMZ … and it’s clear, Diane is looking to get her old identity back.
Lane — who recently appeared in “Man of Steel” — initially filed the divorce docs back in February, seeking to end the marriage that began in 2004. Lane had cited “irreconcilable differences” for the split.
The docs, filed November 27 in L.A. County Superior Court, show that Diane and Josh have some sort of private financial arrangement … and she’s checked the box to NOT seek spousal support outside of their arrangement.
Diane — who legally went by Diane Lane Brolin — also restored her last name to just Diane Lane.
Child support won’t be an issue — ’cause the couple has no children together.
Hmm, it’s a shame when any relationship ends, but I wonder if his addiction played a part in it. I’m sure the answer to that is “Duh, yes!” but y’know. Hope things work out for these two, whatever they end up doing.

Diane Lane and Josh Brolin are breaking up their 8 year marriage. You may remember Diane Lane from Unfaithful where she cheats on Richard Gere. And you may remember Josh Brolin as George W. Bush. Yes, he’s done big films like No Country For Old Men and Milk, but I will always see him as George W. Bush and that’s something we’re all going to have to live with.
There has been no reason given yet for the split. They married in 2004 and a few months later, Brolin was arrested for “spousal battery” but Lane dropped the charges and both said it was a “misunderstanding.” Who knows if that’s at all related.
The couple have no children.
