“The Conners” star Sara Gilbert has enjoyed a successful television career, but hasn’t found the same success personally.
The “Roseanne” star filed for divorce from her wife, song writer Linda Perry of nearly six years on Dec. 27.
The pair share 4-year-old son Rhodes Emilio. Gilbert is also mom to her two kids, Levi Hawk, 15, and Sawyer Jane, 12, from a previous relationship.
Four-time Grammy-nominated songwriter and music producer Perry said of the split, “everything happens for a reason,” adding that the two “are evolving into something else.”
In April Gilbert announced she was leaving the CBS daytime show “The Talk” after nine years to focus on her family saying recently, “It takes perseverance to be in Hollywood, and you get in touch with your own fighting spirit when you live out here, no matter what you do.”
