Jodie Kidd's eight month marriage to David Blakeley is officially over. A judge granted the former couple a decree of judicial separation at a hearing in the Central Family Court in London on Friday. Neither party were present for the proceedings, which lasted less than five minutes.
Paperwork showed that David petitioned for divorce on the grounds of his wife's "unreasonable behaviour".
Jodie and David were married in August at Holy Trinity Church in Plaistown, West Sussex, about a year after they first met.

Shortly after the wedding, former supermodel Jodie – who has been married once before – told HELLO! magazine that her new husband had given her the "confidence to go and conquer the world". She also said that author David had restored her faith in marriage.
"As soon as David and I met, I went through a huge 360 in my mind and thought 'That's it, we're going to spend the rest of our lives together'," she said in an exclusive interview.
Sadly though, in January mum-of-one Jodie confirmed that the couple had split. "It's with sadness that David and I have separated," she told the Sun. "My priority remains my son Indio."
A friend of 36-year-old Jodie's told the newspaper that she might have married David too quickly.

"She now admits they rushed into the marriage and they didn't really know each other well enough to make such a big commitment," the insider said.
"It wasn't working so they mutually made the difficult decision to end things rather than stay in a relationship that didn't have a future."
Jodie was previously married to internet entrepreneur Aidan Butler for 18 months. She has a son, Indio, with her former partner Andrea Vianini, an Argentinian polo player from who she split in the summer of 2013.
