James Van Der Beek Files for Divorce

And another one bites the dust! 'Dawson's Creek' star James Van Der Beek has filed for divorce from his actress wife Heather McComb citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their break-up.

The couple has stayed out of the limelight for years but friends suspected that there was trouble in paradise after they put their $2.5 million dollar Studio City home on the market back in March.

James’ marriage must have been over for awhile now, because that would explain why he stepped out on the town last week with a new woman.

Hollyscoop spoke with James on the red carpet for the Puma African Bazaar event, where he’s arrived with a lady friend. He seemed in good spirits, talking about his upcoming projects, and his new year’s resolutions to just enjoy life and stay positive. We wish him the best in his newfound singledom!

James and Heather said "I Do" back in 2003 in a private ceremony in Malibu six months after 'Dawson's Creek' went off the air.

They did such a great job of keeping their marriage low key, we almost forgot about them! We wish them both the best of luck.
