Actor Matt Roth Files for Divorce from Former Roseanne Star Wife Laurie Metcalf

By Sheryl Rentz on September 26, 2011

Laurie Metcalf, who played Roseanne’s sister Jackie Harris in the popular TV series Roseanne and most recently played the character of Sheldon’s mother on the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory, is divorcing Mike Roth, her actor husband of six and a half years, according to People magazine. The couple had met on the set of Roseanne where Roth played the abusive younger boyfriend of Laurie Metcalf’s character.

Roth filed for divorce on September 12 citing “irreconcilable differences.” He is Metcalf’s second husband. The couple has been separated since November 2008 and has three children, who are all minors: Will, 17, Donovan, 11, and Mae, 6.

Roth is requesting joint legal and physical custody of the children, which means that the children will alternately live with both parents and both have a say in making important decisions concerning their kids. In addition to his request for joint custody of their children, Roth is also requesting that the judge bar Metcalf from any request of spousal support, according to TMZ.com.

Going through a divorce can be a very difficult time, however; going through a high profile divorce makes it exceedingly worse. Constantly being in the public’s eye can make divorce and child custody issues infinitely more stressful and emotionally taxing. The experienced Pennsylvania high profile divorce attorney Sheryl R. Rentz holds herself to the highest standard of professionalism and can promise complete discretion while helping you through your divorce. Contact her today at 866-290-9292 for a consultation.
