Debra Messing, Daniel Zelman to Divorce

by at .

Smash star Debra Messing has filed to officially end her marriage to Daniel Zelman, six months after the couple of 10-plus years announced their separation.

According to court documents filed Tuesday, the actress seeks joint custody of their son, 8, and is asking for both spousal and child support from Zelman.

Messing, 43, began dating her Smash co-star Will Chase around the time of their split announcement in December, but things were over long before that.

Court papers timed the separation back in February 2010.
