David Cassidy's divorce after 23 years of marriage has left the actor heartbroken and dismayed.

After spending the last few months apart, Sue Shifrin-Cassidy pulled the plug on the couple's marriage earlier this week, telling TMZ, "This has been looming for some time. I am truly heartbroken that our marriage is ending."

But a representative for Cassidy told The Huffington Post that the filing was unfortunate.

"It is very sad that Sue chose this approach," Cassidy said through his rep. "I have tried to resolve this amicably outside of the public eye. I have reached out to her with no response over the last three months. It's a sad day for me and for our son Beau."

News of the split comes just weeks after Cassidy's January DUI arrest -- his third since 2011. The 63-year-old actor has been undergoing rehab for substance abuse.
