Patrick filed the papers in the Superior Court of Arizona in Maricopa County, citing an "irretrievably broken" marriage as the cause for divorce.

"My marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation ... My spouse and I did acquire community property during our marriage, and it will be divided as indicated on a Settlement Agreement which will be submitted to the court at a later date," writes Patrick in the divorce papers.

Patrick announced the impending divorce on Facebook back in November, writing, "I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. This isn't easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that's how we will remain moving forward."
