17th March 2021

IOAN Gruffudd has finally removed his wedding band after filing for divorce from Alice Evans.

The 47-year-old actor was spotted strolling around West Hollywood yesterday and ditched the ring for the first time since his bitter split was revealed.

His appearance comes after it emerged that his divorce papers cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for his split from wife Alice.

The document, which was filed in Los Angeles, also claims the former couple separated on New Year's Day.

It says the pair, who have two daughters, are in a "collaborative process" to resolve all spousal support issues. They are also seeking joint custody of their children.

Alice previously claimed Ioan secretly filed for divorce without telling her.

Sharing a news article about the impending divorce, Alice wrote on Instagram: "Oh, ok. Thanks for letting me know I guess."

In January, the 49-year-old claimed the Fantastic Four actor had "walked out" on her and their two daughters after saying he "no longer loves her".

She broke the news to fans in a since deleted post on Twitter, explaining that her husband had given very few details about his decision.

She wrote: "Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week.

"Me and our young daughters girls are very confused and sad. We haven’t been given a reason except that he ‘no longer loves me.’ I’m so sorry."

In more recent posts, Alice said she was scared of what impact the split would have on the couple's girls.

She wrote: "I can’t sleep. Not a wink. I am terrified for what tomorrow will bring.

"Oh don’t worry, I’m fully aware of how pathetic that sounds.

"I’ll make it worse. Do you what I’m mostly scared of? It’s who the girl is. I know! Why? Why would it even matter?

"I’m scared that my little girls will be disappointed by their Dads behavior and model that in their future relations with the opposite sex."

The couple have been married since 2007. It’s unknown whether they had signed a pre-nuptial agreement.

Alice, who met Ioan on the set of 2000 film 102 Dalmatians, said she was “very confused and sad” in an emotional statement.

Ioan later said: "Look, as I said before, it's an extremely difficult time for the family.

"Our thoughts are with our children obviously right now and I'd really respect a little bit of privacy right now, thank you."

Ioan played widower and serial rapist Andrew Earlham opposite Joanne Froggatt in hit ITV drama Liar.

Just last month Alice insisted she had remained friends with Ioan – star of ITV drama Liar – for the sake of their children.
