'Mad Men' star Elisabeth Moss files for divorce

Tuesday September 21, 2010

She only tied the knot last October. But Elisabeth Moss has decided to make her split from husband Fred Armisen official.

The 28-year-old Mad Men actress has filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.

Elisabeth has reportedly listed June 26 as the date of the couple's separation – just eight months after she married the Saturday Night Live comedian.

It is thought that conflicting work schedules and the pressure of a long-distance relationship were the causes of the break-up.

Since then Fred, 43, has begun a new relationship with his SNL cast member Abby Elliot, 23.

Fred and Elisabeth first met in 2008 when she made a cameo appearance on his show, and they became engaged in 2009.

He is primarily based in New York, while Elisabeth – Peggy Olson in Mad Men – works in Los Angeles.
