Mena Suvari divorce from Simone Sestito finalized
“American Beauty” star Mena Suvari has just finalized her divorce on Monday with soon-to-be-former husband Simone Sestito.
According to reports, 33-year-old Mena Suvari filed the divorce docs against concert producer Simone Sestito in January of this year. The estranged couple separated back in November 2011 after only one year and four months of marriage. Both cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. They do not have any children together.
Mena Suvari and Simone Sestito exchanged their vows in a private church in Vatican City, Italy in the summer of 2010.
Initially, Simone Sestito is said to have pleaded for the sum of $17,151 a month to cover his living expenses as part of his divorce from the actress. Apparently, the two eventually waived their rights to spousal support.
Mena’s marriage to Simone Sestito is her second one. Before, she wed cinematographer Robert Brinkmann in 2000, but they divorced in 2005 after only five years of marriage.
