Olivia Wilde's divorce from Italian prince is finalised

Tuesday October 4, 2011

Olivia Wilde is officially a single lady after a judge has signed papers ending her eight-year marriage to an Italian prince.

The actress, 27, filed for divorce from Tao Ruspoli – whose family owns Rome's Palazzo Ruspoli – in March.

The pair eloped in 2003 when Olivia was a teenager and married in a school bus in rural Virginia.

The Tron star did not seek spousal support and the former couple reached a private agreement on dividing property.

"The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling," the actress told Marie Claire in July, "and for the first time, I'm a little bit wobbly."

But Olivia insists that she and her ex remain on good terms.

"We're friends; his family is my family. You always have a choice to feel angry and not be friends."

"But I can't handle the idea of walking into a room and seeing someone I have bad blood with. I can't keep any negative relationship with anyone."
