Carly Lawrence Files For Divorce From Bennett Sipes After Two Years


In her court documents, Lawrence moved to dissolve her union with Sipes and cited Hollywood’s favorite reason for divorce—”irreconcilable differences.” She explained that they had been married for two years and a month before parting ways on Friday, June 7.

Lawrence did not make demands like the coverage of her attorney fees but asked the Court to terminate her and Sipes’s rights to spousal support. She also noted that they had no community properties and attached a report about their combined assets and debts.

These assets would eventually be divided between the pair; however, it was unclear if a prenuptial agreement was in place to ease this process. The property list included a 2019 BMW 3 Series, multiple bank accounts, and $7,594 in debt.
