It looks like it’s over for Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz as Katie has officially filed for divorce.

After 12 years together, Katie and Tom shocked their fans, followers, and Vanderpump Rules viewers when they confirmed their separation following weeks of rumors. Although the two expressed their shared “respect” for one another, it wasn’t enough to help their marriage in the long run.

According to reports from TMZ, Katie filed the divorce papers with the Los Angeles Supreme Court on Tuesday. The filing comes exactly one week after the former couple posted their separation announcement to social media.

Katie’s filing for divorce comes on the heels of the couple deciding to end their marriage after over a decade together. Although statements were released simultaneously to their respective Instagram accounts, their messages varied.

For his part, Tom expressed his deep sadness over Katie’s decision to end their marriage. And while he was willing to acknowledge their separation, he admitted he wasn’t ready to use the “D” word quite yet.

“Yes my heart aches but I’ll be ok,” his statement read, in part. “Not looking to evoke any sympathy here. I’m not the victim. Not gonna write too sad a song. Fully respect Katie’s decision and we’ve had healthy, productive conversations about it.”
Tom carried on to say it would be “far sadder” if Katie had decided to stay in a marriage that didn’t make her happy.

Katie’s statement echoed the sentiment of avoiding animosity throughout their split. According to Katie, she still has much admiration for Tom. She continued to share that although she and Tom would separate as a couple, they “will continue to love and support one another’s happiness.”
