Neve Campbell divorce finalized

The divorce between movie star Neve Campbell and her husband of approximately four years is now final.

According to divorce documents obtained by TMZ, Campbell and her husband, John Light, an English actor, officially split one day after their four-year wedding anniversary. The news source reports that the pair submitted a confidential settlement agreement that splits up the property in their marriage.

The precise terms of the settlement are not known but when divorce papers were initially filed in June, TMZ reports that Campbell had asked the judge to deny her husband spousal support.

The initial filing in Los Angeles Superior Court cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce, although E! Online reports that sources indicate that the split is “very amicable.”

The 37-year-old Campbell is best known for her part in the TV series “Party of Five” and for her role in the “Scream” horror movie series, the first of which came out in 1996. The fourth installment came out this past April and has grossed about $37 million so far, according to the Internet Movie Database website.
