(Newser) – Sara Gilbert is leaving her wife Linda Perry after more than five years of marriage—and doesn't want either of them to be awarded spousal support, People reports. The Conners actor filed legal paperwork on Friday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause. Gilbert, 44, also asked for joint legal and physical custody of their 4-year-old son, Rhodes. Little else is known, but Gilbert and Perry, 54, began dating in 2011, got engaged two years later, and said "I do" in March 2014, Us Weekly recalls. Perry made her name as lead singer of the '90s band 4 Non Blondes and also started two record labels that created hits for performers like Pink and Gwen Stefani, per TMZ.
