Elisabeth Moss Files for Divorce From Fred Armisen
Mad Men beauty Elisabeth Moss has officially filed for divorce from husband and Saturday Night Live star Fred Armisen.
There had been whisperings about the pair’s split since August, but it wasn’t made official until this week. The 28-year-old actress cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause behind the split.
The two met in October 2008 when Elisabeth appeared in several skits alongside Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm who was hosting. The couple announced their engagement in January of 2009 and were married on October 23, 2009.
Watch Elisabeth on SNL, where she met Fred for the first time.
Elisabeth listed June 26, 2010 as the date of the couple’s separation, which makes the news that Fred is quietly dating SNL co-star Abby Elliott less shocking. The new couple reportedly started seeing each other after Fred and Elisabeth split.
According to Us magazine, the main reason behind the Elisabeth and Fred’s split was her Scientology beliefs. Elisabeth is a devoted Scientologist and Fred reportedly had problems adapting to her religious affiliation.
