Comedy legend Andrew Dice Clay has filed for divorce because marriage was making himself and his wife miserable.

The Blue Jasmine star filed papers last month (Mar14), but insists he and his wife of four years, Valerie Vasquez, are not planning to split.

He tells, "The word 'marriage' was putting a pressure on our relationship and since we filed, we've been more in love and have had more respect for each other than ever before."

The couple wed in Las Vegas on Valentine's Day (14Feb) in 2010.
