Yolanda Foster has begun the divorce proceedings from her husband David Foster, one month after the couple announced the end of their four-year marriage. Gigi Hadid's mum is said to have filed the papers.

According to TMZ, Yolanda cites "irreconcilable differences" in the documents and she has also asked for spousal support.

The issues of child support or custody care do not need to be addressed, given that Yolanda and David do not have any children together.

The Dutch-American former model is the mum of Gigi, 20, Bella, 19, and 16-year-old Anwar from her previous marriage to Mohammed Hadid. Meanwhile, music producer David, who has been married four times, has five daughters.

The report went on to say that Yolanda and David signed a prenup before their November 2011 wedding. David has also helped pay for his estranged wife's new home in Los Angeles, estimated to be worth £3.5million.

The news comes just days after Yolanda, who suffers from Lyme disease, marked her 52nd birthday. Yolanda was joined by her "perfect birthday date" Anwar, her youngest child and only son.

Taking to Instagram, the star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills posted a picture of her celebrations, which included feasting on a delicious cake. Yolanda also revealed her birthday wish to her followers, which, naturally, was for her good health.

"All I wish for today is a chance at a healthy life without counting spoons so that I can continue my quest in finding a CURE for #LymeDisease affordable for ALL," she wrote.

Gigi Hadid's mum was diagnosed with the illness in 2012, one year after her wedding

It's been reported that Yolanda's illness played a factor in the breakdown of her marriage. One year after the wedding, the reality TV star was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Writing a blog post in January 2015, Yolanda revealed that she has lost the ability to read, write or even watch TV.

Yolanda has also spoken to HELLO! about how she has "travelled the world" to find a cure. "I stayed in a clinic in Florida for two months," she said in January 2014. "I did 30 days of hardcore detox in Switzerland, where I wasn't even allowed to use shampoo or lotion.

"After all this, I still didn't see much improvement. I haven't driven my car for 18 months. It's a disease that you can't see from the outside, so people think you're okay, but it's a devastating condition. It brought me to my knees."
