Rosie O’Donnell Files For Divorce From Wife Of Two Years


After linking her abrupt exit from The View to increased stress in her personal life, Rosie O’Donnell has filed from divorce from Michelle Rounds, her wife of two years.

The pair separated in the fall but now Rosie, 52, has made it official, citing “an irretrievably broken relationship” in divorce papers filed with the Manhattan State Supreme Court.

“I can confirm that Rosie and her wife Michelle split in November,” Rosie’s rep, Cindi Berger, said in a statement. “Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. She is putting her personal health and family first. ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave The View.”

This was O’Donnell’s second marriage—she married Kelli Carpenter in 2004, though they split in 2007.
