Roseanne Star Getting Divorced from Actor Husband

By Nottage and Ward on September 26, 2011

According to People magazine, 56-year-old Laurie Metcalf, who played Roseanne’s sister Jackie Harris in the popular 1988-1997 TV series Roseanne and who most recently played Sheldon’s mother on The Big Bang Theory, and her actor husband, 48-year-old Matt Roth, are getting a divorce. The couple had met on the set of Roseanne where Roth played Fisher, the abusive boyfriend of Metcalf’s character.

Roth, who is Metcalf’s second husband, filed for divorce on September 12 citing “irreconcilable differences.” They have been married for six and a half years, although the couple has been separated since November 2008. The couple has three children, who are all minors: Will, 17-years-old, Donovan, 11-years-old, and Mae, six-years-old.

Roth is requesting joint physical and legal custody, meaning that the children will alternate living with both parents and both parents are involved in making important decisions concerning their children. According to a TMZ.com article, Roth is also requesting that the judge block any request of spousal support from Metcalf.
