After three years, Arterton finally granted divorce

London, Aug 22 (IANS) Actress Gemma Arterton, who separated from her husband Stefano Catelli in 2012, has been granted a divorce after a three-year wait.

Paperwork states that a judge found that the actress was “entitled to a decree of divorce, the marriage having irretrievably broken down, the facts being proved being two years’ separation by consent”.

Arterton and Italian fashion consultant Catelli enjoyed married in a Spanish ceremony in 2010 just less than a year after getting engaged at the Download music festival.

Two years later, the duo headed for splitsville and Arterton spoke about their separation for the first time in 2013, confessing to Marie Claire magazine: “It was a wonderful time and I have nothing bad to say about it. Even if they don’t last relationships can enrich your life in some way and then you move on to the next part – it’s all part of the process of living.”

Arterton is now seeing French assistant director Franklin Ohanessian, with whom she confirmed romance in 2014.
