Oct 24, 2013 10:40am

Dina Eastwood has decided officially to end her 17-year marriage to Clint Eastwood.

The actor-director’s wife filed divorce papers Tuesday in Monterey County Superior Court in Carmel, Calif., according to court’s website.

Her decision comes two weeks after she withdrew her papers for legal separation, which she originally filed Oct. 7.

According to People magazine, Dina, 48, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split in court documents filed Tuesday and asked for physical custody of their 16-year-old daughter, Morgan, as well as joint legal custody.

She’s also asking for spousal support, although her filing acknowledges that she and Clint, 83, have a prenuptial agreement, while property rights are still “to be determined.”

The couple met in 1993, when his wife – then known as Dina Ruiz, a TV news anchor – was assigned to interview the legendary actor-director. The two married March 31, 1996.

Dina starred last year  in the reality-TV show “Mrs. Eastwood & Company,” which included a mix of her work managing the a cappella group Overtone and running her household. Clint, notoriously private, didn’t appear much on the program.

People magazine’s Raha Lewis told ABC News that the show put a strain on the marriage.
