Actor Jason London and his wife Sofia Karstens have split after almost three years of marriage.

The "Dazed and Confused" star's partner filed for legal separation the first week of February, according to TMZ.com and the couple has released a joint statement to the website, confirming the split.

The release reads: "[We] love and respect each other... but feel the breakup is necessary to focus on some growth independently."

London was previously married to Charlie Spradling. Their divorce was finalized months before he wed Karstens in 2011.

The news of London's separation comes after a string of troubles for the 41-year-old, who was embroiled in a bar brawl in Arizona last year.

The actor was charged with assault after allegedly punching a bouncer at the Martini Ranch bar in Scottsdale, and he reportedly fought police officers who arrived at the scene.
