‘Vanderpump Rules’ star Katie Maloney files for divorce from Tom Schwartz

Katie Maloney has officially filed for divorce from Tom Schwartz, reports TMZ.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star filed the legal paperwork in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, exactly one week after she and Schwartz announced their separation.

Maloney, 35, and Schwartz, 39, had been together for nearly 12 years and sent Bravo fans into a frenzy when they shared separate statements about their breakup via Instagram last week.

At the time, Schwartz admitted he was “not quite ready to use the ‘D’ word because it’s too painful”.

The two were last seen together on Saturday having lunch at Mister O’s in Studio City, Calif. — an outing they made sure to document on social media.

Maloney, 35, and Schwartz, 39, tied the knot on Bravo in 2016. They legalized their marriage three years later.

Schwartz posted a photo of Maloney sipping a cocktail on her Instagram story, which she reposted with the caption, “It’s [sic] all good.”

However, an eyewitness at the restaurant said the couple “seemed disinterested in each other, constantly looking down and examining their cell phones,” according to TMZ.

Maloney recently admitted that her decision to end their marriage had been “building up” for months.

“I felt like I was drifting and I couldn’t stop it,” she explained on her “You’re Gonna Love Me” podcast. “It was the hardest thing to do. The hardest thing to tell him, because I knew it was going to crush him.

The ex-Bubbas began dating in September 2010 and tied the knot in front of Bravo cameras in August 2016. After discovering a marriage license mishap that unfolded on the show, they flew to Las Vegas to get legally married in July 2019.

Representatives for Maloney and Schwartz did not immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.
