Yolanda Foster files for divorce

Yolanda Foster has filed for divorce.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star split from producer David Foster in December after four years of marriage and has now filed documents at the Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday.

E! News reports that she has requested spousal support and asked that David pay her legal fees.

Yolanda recently claimed her Lyme Disease diagnosis put a great deal of stress on her relationship with David, 66.

She said: "We had a beautiful love story that I will treasure forever. Unfortunately, it was not strong enough to withstand the circumstances that came our way.

"Chronic, long-term illness is extremely challenging. Not only for the person sick but also for the caregiver. It for sure changed the dynamic of the relationship.

"The truth is that we both worked through the difficult time through the best of our ability, so rather than judging what went wrong, I pick to remember the great times that we shared the last nine years. There was a wealth of good times."

The 51-year-old television personality also admitted she was "heartbroken" following the break up.

She said: "I keep going, one foot in front of the other. Obviously, this is a difficult time and I'm heartbroken.

"I hope to be moving forward to a brighter future and I'm just trying to get through it one day at a time."
