Citing irreconcilable differences as the reason, 40-year-old Appleton filed the paperwork in a Los Angeles court on Nov. 12, according to documents obtained by TMZ, but listed Nov. 10 as the date of separation from 28-year-old Gage.
The documents state there is no request for spousal support, as the men signed a post-nuptial agreement on May 3 that waived it. They each will exit the marriage with the same assets and obligations they entered with, the documents say, per the post-nuptial agreement.
The couple posted pictures of their wedding on Instagram on April 26 and confirmed that they were married at the time. Kim Kardashian, one of Appleton’s clients, officiated the ceremony, and Shania Twain performed.
“We did it,” Appleton captioned his post, adding a ring emoji. “Big thank you to @kimkardashian & @shaniatwain.”
“Ring finger where the rock is,” Gage, whose acting credits include “You” and “The White Lotus,” captioned his post of the same pictures.
The two men confirmed their relationship earlier this year after several weeks of their rumored budding romance.
“Listen, I’m very happy, very much in love,” Appleton said on The Drew Barrymore Show in March. “And I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special.”
