The news comes after Ricci, 40, was reportedly granted an emergency protective order against Heerdegen after police were called to their Los Angeles home on June 25.

The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a domestic battery radio call at Ricci’s home at around 9:20 a.m. on June 25, according to reports. No arrests were made.

Ricci met Heerdegen, a camera operator for films and television, on the set of her short-lived TV series Pan Am in 2011. They started dating the following year and married in 2013.

Ricci is best known for her childhood work in hit films, including Casper and The Addams Family, and for her adult appearances in indie films, including Black Snake Moan and Buffalo 66.
