Alana Mayo is divorcing wife Lena Waithe, one year after announcing they had secretly tied the knot.

Earlier this week, Mayo filed a petition for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court, per court records obtained by The Blast.

In January — two months after Waithe, 36, had confirmed the nuptials — the pair revealed they had separated.

“After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways,” read a joint statement from Waithe and Mayo’s reps to E! News

Daily Mail reports since announcing the split last month, there’s been rumors Lena was unfaithful, buying expensive gifts for other women.

Waithe is also developing a series at Amazon Studios about open relationships, potentially called Open. Back in August, she told The Hollywood Reporter

“I’ve never been in an open marriage, but it’s fascinating to me. We live in a world where, if I told you I cheated on my wife, you would be like, ‘Yeah, that’s the way it goes.’ But if I told you that I’m in an open marriage, it would be as if I told you I’m joining the Church of Scientology.”
