Landon Donovan has given up on plans to reconcile permanently with actress wife Bianca Kajlich - the soccer star has filed for divorce.
In documents obtained by TMZ.com, the World Cup hero has cited irreconcilable differences for the split.
The couple split in 2009 but there were hopes of a reunion earlier this year (10) when Donovan namechecked his estranged partner during an emotional World Cup TV interview.
Kajlich and Donovan were then spotted at a number of glitzy events and launches, but they refused to talk about the status of their marriage.
Donovan is seeking spousal support from the actress.
The couple wed in 2006.
