Sad news to report this morning. According to a report from TooFab, in court documents filed on Wednesday, La La Land  and film producer Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T., Y&R) has filed for divorce from his wife The Young and the Restless’ Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman).

The item states that Thad filed for the split in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, citing “irreconcilable differences.”  The couple wed back in 2007 and have been together for ten years. The couple are parents to their children: Thaddeus, 10, and Georgia, 8.

Luckinbill is seeking joint custody of the children and is asking the court to “reserve for future determination the issue of spousal support,” according to the filing.

Thad exited Y&R back in 2010 and began producing hit films and working behind the scenes. As for Amelia, the popular actress has won two Daytime Emmys since taking over the role of Victoria on the CBS soap opera back in 2005.

Share your thoughts on the split of Amelia and Thad in the comment section below, and wish the family well during this difficult time.

    u obviously care enough to be rude about it..
    the article was obviously meant for ppl who do care
    u mentioning ur feelings contrary too are pointless, kinda like how i feel even responding to you

    I agree with him tmi so not our business. Why do celebrities feel the need to broadcast their marital woes to a fan base. Tell the whole truth of these matter or leave that ish private. FOR REAL!!!

    Celia replied

    It is always sad to hear news like this, damien; especially because we consider these characters/ actors (actresses) as part of our family.
    By the same token, what can be said? No one is privy to whatever goes on behind closed doors.
    The ones to suffer the most are the children. My love and support goes out to all of them. Best wishes.

    Yeah, comes off a little rude and heartless. When a marriage breaks up and there are kids involved, it is always difficult, even if it’s amicable.

    Irene has never been in love before!

    This is such sad news. I wish them both well in this difficult time.


  3. Jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    The good thing is that the children will still have both their parents in their lives even if not in the same home!!!…Unfortunately, divorce happens..but even more so in Hollywood


    Addison replied

    Yes, and Reed is doing well while pursuing his music career.
    Wait….I am a tad mixed up.
    In any case, always liked these two as actors and I am sorry their marriage is over.


  4. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    Sad, especially since children are involved. Hope it isn’t a messy divorce, and wish them both nothing but the absolute best in their futures, wherever they may lead!

    It’s always sad when children are involved. I hope for the sake of the kids, they come to an amicable resolution. God bless.


  7. mark says:

    Sad I like them both!


  8. Laura says:

    Now why aren’t I surprised over this?!


  9. k/kay says:

    Very sad news this explains a lot the dramatic weight loss over the last few months with AH and they never seemed to be together at events anymore.


    Celia replied

    Yeah, Kay…you are always on point. I had remarked how Kristen Storms had dropped weight, drastically, since her divorce.
    The same goes for Amelia….very noticeable. Hope all’s well.


    k/kay replied

    @Cee yes what has happened to both ladies is called The Divorce Diet stress not eating hopefully they both have support from family and friends.

    Celia replied

    Thank you, Kay. There’s pain in life, my friend. We all go through it, in one form or another. And, how right you are. ….the support of one’s family means everything.
    Stay well.

    Sorry to hear this…sad!


  11. Christina Graff says:

    I am sorry to hear they are divorcing.
    Show business seems so difficult on
    Couples. Pray they will be calm for
    The sake of the children. Best of Luck
    & happiness to all concerned.


  12. Esmerelda says:

    I hope the best for them and that there kids don’t get hurt and wish the best for them and where they go from here with their children and how they get along with one another


  13. April says:

    I never warmed to this actress or her character but wish them both well. Have to get the divorce under the 10 year mark in California


    Abruzzfan replied

    Yes, this speaks to Thad’s character. It looks like he filed for divorce – a few days before the 10-year mark. Since he filed, I don’t know, but it sounds like he is choosing money over his family – very sad.


    Hopeladin replied

    I think that’s a little bit slimy, like him. I don’t think he was a very good actor.

  14. Nicholas says:

    wish they would seek therapy both individually and as a couple . you wil always experience lows in a marriage . sometimes issues need to be addressed in therapy and for both to work on these issues . Wish people would work on their marriages rather than just give up .
