Entertainment Tonight was the first to report that movie executive Alex filed for divorce from the actress, citing irreconcilable differences. 

The couple met in February of 2007 and were enaged only three months later, followed by their Sept. 1 wedding that same year, in a ceremony featured in the pages of OK!. The star's Grey's Anatomy co-stars were on hand to celebrate the union, including Katherine Heigl, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson and Sara Ramirez.
