(Newser) – The first time around, Ben Harper was the one to file for divorce from Laura Dern—but nearly two years later, it's Dern filing to reactivate the divorce. The divorce was never finalized, TMZ explains, and the couple attempted to reconcile earlier this year (click to see a photo of them together in February). Apparently, that didn't work out, based on Dern's Friday filing in LA. She wants primary physical custody of their two children, joint legal custody, spousal support, child support, and attorney fees. Click for more on the split.
