British actress Billie Piper
and her estranged husband DJ Chris Evans
are set to make their two-year split official - their divorce is expected to be granted today. The couple eloped to Las Vegas in 2001 and married when Piper was just 18, but their relationship broke down after three years together and they parted ways amicably in 2004.
Radio and TV personality Evans recently applied for a decree nisi (a stage of the divorce proceedings) at London's High Court, and its pronouncement is scheduled for later today.
However, it will take a further six weeks for the process to be finalized. The Doctor Who
actress recently stated that she would not be asking for spousal support - even though Evans is worth an estimated $60 million.
She said: "I'm not taking a penny from him. I think that would be disgusting."
