"The marriage is over and has been for a very long time now," a source dished to the entertainment outlet. "Tori has met with her lawyers and is planning to file very soon. She's trying to work it all out and make sure she is financially OK first."
"It's for the best and has been a long time coming," the insider revealed. "They have been trying to work it out for years for the sake of the kids but they truly do not get along."
The source went on to add: "They have been sleeping in different rooms for months and haven't considered themselves to be 'married' for a while now. Tori's ready for a fresh new start but is trying to be strategic about it."
