Actor Sara Ramirez files for divorce after years of separation



After years of separation, former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sara Ramirez has finally filed for divorce from their estranged husband, Ryan DeBolt.

The 48-year-old Tony Award winner officially submitted the paperwork on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

Despite publicly announcing their split in 2021, Ramirez reportedly the listed the date of separation as January 2018 in the legal docs.

“We remain loving and supportive in how we are choosing to forge our new individual paths. Thank you for holding space around our choices and respecting our families’ privacy as we navigate this process on our own terms,” they wrote in their 2021 separation announcement.

The Mazatlán, Mexico native is now also seeking to prevent the court from awarding spousal support to either party, citing a prenuptial agreement.

The couple first started dating for a number of years prior to their 2011 engagement, and would tie the knot in a private beachside ceremony in New York the following year.

In 2016, after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Ramirez publicly shared their identity as queer and bisexual — a revelation that reflected their “Grey’s Anatomy” character, Dr. Callie Torres, who came out as bisexual in a 2009 episode.

Ramirez further opened up about their personal identity in August 2020, announcing they’re gender nonbinary.

“In me is the capacity to be: girlish boy, boyish girl, boyish boy, girlish girl, all, neither,” they said at the time.

In January of this year, Ramirez‘s polarizing character in “And Just Like That…,” HBO’s “Sex and the City” reboot, was reportedly axed from the eagerly anticipated third season.

The news came on the heels of the actor discussing the perils of being a vocal supporter of Palestine amid Israel’s war in Gaza, writing in a since-deleted Instagram post: “Our industry is so duplicitous … While they give awards away, casting directors and agents are making blacklists of actors and workers who post anything in support of Palestinians in Gaza to ensure they will not work again.”
