It sounds like things are getting a bit contentious in Orange Is the New Black star Pablo Schreiber's split from wife Jessica Schreiber, with Pablo wanting to skip a separation period and go straight for divorce.

Jessica, a yoga instructor, filed for legal separation for Pablo back in December, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple has two children, a 5-year-old son and a 22-month-old daughter, and Jessica also demanded full custody, though she was reportedly open to granting him legal visitation rights and possibly even shared custody.

TMZ reports that Pablo is now firing back, demanding divorce instead. Hey, if the marriage is over, might as well make it legal, right? TMZ also reports that Pablo is requesting the court block Jessica from getting the spousal support she requested, and is asking for joint custody of the kids.

Separations like this are always tough. We hope things work out in a way everyone can live with. And hopefully the stress won't prevent Pablo from enjoying the excitement around Orange Is the New Black Season 2, which premieres on June 6.
