After being arrested on suspicion of DUI, actress Lisa Robin Kelly decided to file for divorce from her husband of under a year, Robert Gilliam. Apparently, the relationship has been rocky since its beginning, with Kelly being arrested for domestic abuse last August and then again with Gilliam in November. This does not a happy marriage make.
TMZ broke the story of Kelly’s divorce earlier today, reporting that the actress cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. The straw that broke the camel’s back was this:
According to Lisa, the argument started because Gilliam wanted her to empty her bank account and give him her money. She refused, and claims Gilliam attacked her, pulling her hair, throwing her to the ground, and choking her. She says he even threatened to shoot her. Lisa says she tried to call police, but Gilliam snatched away her phone. Luckily, a neighbor called the cops for her and Gilliam was arrested. She obtained a restraining order shortly afterward, and filed for divorce last week.
So, what happened to Gilliam after all this? Well, he was sentenced to 3 years of probation, plus time served in jail on domestic battery. TMZ reports that he also has to attend a year-long domestic violence program and cannot come within 100 yards of Kelly.
Well, that’s that.
