News has confirmed that Modern Family actress Julie Bowen filed for divorce from her husband Scott Phillips on Tuesday, less than a week after it was reported that the couple had separated.
Bowen has cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup, and she is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their three children, according to documents obtained by E! News.
Bowen is also requesting that the court be prevented from awarding Phillips spousal maintenance. The actress also included the couple’s separation date of December 17, 2017.
Since their September 2004 wedding, Bowen and Phillips, a real estate investor, have welcomed three children into the world as a married couple.
When Did Julie Bowen Get A Divorce? She Recently Brought Up The Topic Of Dating Again
Julie Bowen opened up about where her love life stands in an interview with guest host Adam DeVine on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on January 14, 2022. The actress’s marriage to Scott Phillips, a real estate agent, ended in divorce in 2018. Julie filed for divorce a few days before the couple made their official separation announcement after their thirteen-year marriage ended.
Julie told Adam that she is “very single” and that she has “stopped dating” after he inquired about her dating life. Gertrude Stein, her beloved dog, was her “retirement gift,” and she joked that she was “dating retirement.”
In the episode, she discussed her decision to adopt a dog in greater detail, saying, “When I finally started going on dates, one guy was all, “You have to come to my house because I have a dog.” So I figured, “I’m getting a dog, that’s the trick.” My conditions have changed.”
People magazine reports that Julie would consider ending her relationship hiatus with musician Harry Styles. Adam joked, “Word on the street is that you have a little bit of a crush, girl,” after noting Julie attended Harry’s Fine Line tour in November 2021.
“You’re asking if Harry Styles could get me out of [dating] retirement?” In this case, it was Julie who answered. “In a word, yes. Him? Observe him!”
Julie Bowen And Her Ex-Husband Scott Phillips Have Three Children Together
Julie and Scott are no longer together, but they have three children together: Oliver, 14, and John and Gustav, 12-year-old twins. Previously, Julie joked that her children were the reason why she was still married “I can only recall our life before we had kids. To which you respond, “What?” A span of 12 years. We’ve been parents for nine years now. So, I have a vague recollection of the first three years and then a complete blackout after that.”

She also spoke glowingly of her then-husband, mentioning that she and he had skipped the Emmys once in order to celebrate their anniversary. “He’s never missed an anniversary, and he’s always been so encouraging, but this time I wasn’t even nominated for anything, so I asked, “What do you want to do on our anniversary?” and he said, “I’m playing in a tennis tournament.” It’s a huge privilege to be nominated and invited, but carrying the purse isn’t easy.”
Since She Isn’t Dating At The Moment,
Since her separation, Bowen has been very productive. She needed to wrap up Modern Family. Then, as soon as she regained her independence, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic halted all normal activities, rendering her social life impossible.
Saying, “I’ve been single for two and a half years,” Bowen shared this news with Long. “I uprooted myself two and a half years ago.”
At least Bowen can start fresh now that nobody is throwing her a divorce party. She admitted that she has experienced both sides of a long-term breakup.
“There ought to be the last moment,” Bowen remarked. Once, during a breakup, I was forced to resort to this method. Here are the house keys; I’ll be away all weekend, so please come and get your stuff. This was a lesson I had to learn the hard way because I thought it would be as easy to learn as the names of drumsticks, pairs of underwear, and specialized shampoos. I’m on your side, by the way.
