The actress filed for divorce from Keith Douglas last year (14) after almost four years of marriage, and their subsequent legal proceedings became ugly when they filed restraining orders against each other.

Their marriage has now been annulled on the grounds of fraud after a judge ruled Douglas had lied about his criminal past, financial woes and relationship history before their nuptials.

According to TMZ.com, Douglas had been married five times before and had hidden the number of children he had from Smith, and the judge stated, "She in no way would have jumped (into marriage) within a few months at the chance to be bride number six."

In March (15), Smith was ordered to pay Douglas $7,000 (£4,700) a month in spousal support. It is unclear if she will continue to make these payments.
