Unless Jody Sweetin’s new reality show is about divorce, it looks like it will never happen! She filed for legal separation from her husband Cody Herpin last Wednesday in Orange County, California. The couple were married in July 2007 and became parents last April to a daughter, Zoie.
Sweetin has apparently caught her husband off guard with the filing and he spoke to PEOPLE about the situation.
“I was dumbfounded,” Herpin told PEOPLE, adding that Sweetin left their home and took their 7-month-old girl. “Over this past month something has been different. I’m concerned about our daughter and I just want (Zoie) home.”
Sweetin has been very open that she suffered years of methadone addiction and once even called Herpin “a blessing” who helped turn her life around.
Sweetin’s agent Stella Alex, spoke to PEOPLE as well and claims that Sweetin is “absolutley clean” and that the couple have “come to this path in their life and she felt like this is the way she had to go. Jodie says it’s unfortunate but it’s just what has to happen right now. No more detail, only because she says she doesn’t want to be disrespectful to him.”
Sweetin is citing “irreconcilable differenes” as the reason for the split and is asking that Herpin pay the legal costs, according to the Superior Court papers. Sweetin is also seeking joint legal and physical custody of their daughter Zoie.
