The 38-year-old actor wed his wife Giselle during an intimate ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in April last year (15), but filed for divorce in March (16) after just nine months of marriage.

According to editors at TMZ.com, the pair has now formally split, with Giselle not receiving any spousal support. The short-lived couple, who do not have any children together, reportedly had a pre-nuptial agreement.

In happier times Charlie, who has a pre-teen daughter from a previous relationship, announced his engagement on U.S. TV programme The Steve Harvey Show two months before he tied the knot with Giselle.

He told the talk show host, "After we shot the pilot (for How to Get Away With Murder) in Philadelphia, I came home and proposed to my girlfriend. I did it. We've been engaged for just under a year... I don't think I've ever said that publicly."
