Ashley Judd and Racer Dario Franchitti Split

bliss before the split

After more than a decade of marriage, Ashley Judd and Scottish racecar driver Dario Franchittihave announced they are seeking a divorce.

The actress and her three-time Indianapolis 500 winning spouse released this statement:  "We have mutually decided to end our marriage.  We'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed."

In a show of solidarity she tweeted, "Family Forever @dariofranchitti."  He responded in kind, "@ashley judd family forever."

Judd, 44, and Franchitti, 30, have a home near Franklin, Tennessee.  They wed in a private ceremony at Skibo Castle in Scotland in 2001 after a two year engagement.  Serving as her maid of honor was her country singing sister Wynonna Judd.

Ashley has had a string of bad luck with her 2011 film 'Flypaper' co-starring Patrick Dempsey and the short-lived 2012 ABC series 'Missing.'  The film was panned by 15 of 18 critics and received a Rotten Tomatoes rating.  The TV gig aired for two months and was not renewed for a second season due to low ratings.

Franchitti fared better than his wife, winning the Indianapolis 500 on May 27, 2012 - photos here.
