Comedy couple to split for good as Arnett files for divorce

Will Arnett has filed for divorce from his estranged wife Amy Poehler.

The former couple, who have two sons, Archie, five, and Abel, three, together, announced their split in September 2012 after nine years of marriage but 'The Millers' actor officially filed court documents to legally dissolve their relationship on last week on April 8.

The 43-year-old star requested joint legal and physical custody of their children, along with visitation rights, according to PEOPLE.com.

Both Amy and Will have moved on since their split.

The 'Arrested Development' actor was linked to Billy Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee, 31, last August shortly after he admitted he was scared of dating.

He said: "I don't know what you do. Do you put out an announcement in the trades? I'M DATING! It all seems very scary to me, to be honest. So I'm kind of keeping pretty close counsel right now."

He split from the celebrity chef in December and started seeing Hollywood producer Erin David shortly before Christmas but it is not known if they are still together.

A source said at the time: "[Erin] produced one of the shows or a film he was in. She produced a lot of Lorne Michaels stuff. Will brought her to Jen [Aniston] and Justin [Theroux's] holiday party."

Meanwhile, 'Parks and Recreation' star Amy, 42, began dating fellow comedian Nick Kroll six months after she and Will announced their separation and they went public with their relationship last May.
