George Lopez's wife Ann recently filed for divorce from the comedian and talk show host, following their separation two months ago after 17 years of marriage.

The two announced in September that they had split and George Lopez's spokesperson said the decision was mutual. Ann Serrano Lopez is seeking spousal support and primary custody of their 14-year-old daughter, Mayan, with visitation rights for her father, according to People magazine, which carried the report.

In 2005, Ann Serrano Lopez donated a kidney to her husband, who suffers from a genetic ailment. George Lopez, a 49-year-old actor and comedian, is best known for his TBS talk show "Lopez Tonight" as well as the comedy series "George Lopez".

He was immortalized as a wax figure at Madame Tussauds museum in Hollywood in April (see video).
