Harrison Ford divorces wife of 18 years

Harrison Ford has divorced from screenwriter Melissa Mathison Ford.

The couple had been married for 18 years.

Papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday did not detail the settlement or custody arrangement for the couple's teenage son and daughter.

The Fords, who met on the set of the 1979 film Apocalypse Now, filed for a separation in August 2001 after living apart for nearly a year.

They cited irreconcilable differences. The actor has had a two-year relationship with actress Calista Flockhart.
