According to a report from TMZ, Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian Fink, are splitting up. The couple has been married for 15 years, but it looks like Jillian has filed for divorce from the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actor, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

They said, in a statement to PEOPLE, “It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage. Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of our children, and we ask with profound gratitude that you respect our family’s privacy at this very sensitive time.”

The couple have three kids together — one twelve-year-old girl and two seven-year-old twin boys — and Jillian is reportedly asking for joint custody of the children. TMZ goes on to report that she is also asking for child support as well as spousal report.

A source allegedly told TMZ that “it remains to be seen whether it will be amicable.” They go on to cite Patrick’s supposed ego as the reason for the divorce. Patrick was previously married to Rocky Parker for seven years, before marrying Jillian.
