Though a source insists Josh & Diane’s divorce isn’t going to be ‘ugly,’ the couple has had a tumultuous history since marrying in 2004.

Start digging a hole, because we’ve got a new addition to Hollywood’s ever-expanding marriage graveyard. Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their eight-year marriage, their rep confirms, a decision they came to after much consideration.

“Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage,” their rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Meanwhile, a source close to the couple insists that all is well between the two; they simply decided it was time to part ways.

“It was a mutual decision,” the source tells the mag. “It is very amicable. It’s not ugly, it’s just over.”

The couple has apparently been living separately for several months, but only now confirmed their plans to divorce.

Josh Brolin & Diane Lane’s Marriage Troubles

Josh, 45, and Diane, 48, tied the knot in Aug. 2004 getting engaged in July 2003. But while they appeared happy together on red carpets, they had their fair share of troubles.

Josh was arrested on Dec. 20, 2004 on a spousal battery charge after a heated argument with Diane. He was released on $20,000 bail, and a spokesperson for the couple described their confrontation as a “misunderstanding.”
