U.S. soccer star LANDON DONOVAN has given up on plans to reconcile permanently with actress wife Bianca Kajlich - he has filed for divorce.
In documents obtained by TMZ.com, the World Cup hero has cited irreconcilable differences for the split.
The couple split in 2009 but there were hopes of a reunion earlier this year (10) when Donovan namechecked his estranged partner during an emotional World Cup TV interview.
Kajlich and Donovan were then spotted at a number of glitzy events and launches, but they refused to talk about the status of their marriage.
Donovan is seeking spousal support from the actress.
The couple wed in 2006.
