Marg Helgenberger files for divorce

appaloosa premiere 180908
Marg Helgenberger has officially filed for divorce. She was married for nineteen years to actor/producer Alan Rosenberg. The divorce filing comes on the heels of a separation, which People claims happened in October of 2008, but papers were officially filed in December of 2008. Last October, Marg’s representative told People Magazine, “Marg and Alan have decided to take some time apart.” Looks like they decided to make the “time apart” permanent.

Marg is asking for spousal support, but is asking the court to deny any payments to her estranged husband. Sounds like there’s dirt there, doesn’t it?

Four months after separating from her husband of nearly two decades, CSI actress Marg Helgenberger has filed for divorce, documents filed Tuesday in Los Angeles court show.

Helgenberger cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind her split from actor Alan Rosenberg, and is seeking spousal support while asking the court to deny him any.

“After 19 years of marriage, Marg and Alan have decided to take some time apart,” the actress’s rep told People last October. “They love and respect each other and remain committed to their family.”

Helgenberger, 50, and Rosenberg, 58, have an adult son together.

From People

Marg is a talented actress most well-known for her roles on CSI and before that China Beach. A lot of the youngsters don’t remember China Beach, but it was a great television series back int he day, and Marg acted her ass off in it. In addition to that, I’ll always remember her in Erin Brockovich, as one of the townspeople being slowly poisoned by toxic water. She was wonderful in that small role.

Marg is also a tireless advocate for breast cancer awareness, and she and her estranged husband have an eighteen-year-old son, Hugh. Let’s hope everybody behaves with class and grace during this divorce.

Marg Helgenberger and Alan Rosenberg are shown on 9/17/08 at the premiere of Apaloosa. Credit:

    Wow. I am so surprised. They came across in interviews as such a strong couple. They have never seemed to seek the spotlight. While I am nosy, I hope it does stay respectful and quiet.

  2. lara says:

    kai, that was my first thought as well. She was really pretty before. Sad indeed.

  3. Dorothy says:

  5. eternalcanadian says:

    dang, in that first picture she looks scary-bad, kinda like joan rivers. what the heck, did she get a bad face job or what? she doesn’t look like the person i remember from csi unless i was watching re-runs.

    surprised about this divorce. they always seemed like a solid couple.

  6. the original kate says:

    WTF happened to her face? she looks like a redheaded skull.

  7. Ally says:

    She’s been on a number one show for years. Why does she need spousal support? Petty and pathetic.

  8. Because I Say So says:

    MSAT: My thoughts exactly. Maybe her Botox/lip injections have clouded her fashion sense. I don’t know what she used to look like; she’s always been this freaky looking to me.

  9. AppleGirl says:

    god. She looks so plastic and he looks so creasy. Aging must really suck. Thats the choice we have?.
    We can either look like plastic or be wrinkled like a used tin foil sheet?

  10. Kat says:

    Yea, what happened to her face ??

  11. Maritza says:

    She used to be so beautiful now she looks waxy.

  12. Autumm Leaves says:

    Sad news. I liked how they were together. I like both actors and they’re extremely talented. It does boggle my mind that she wants spousal support.

    OMG I remember Marg from Ryan’s Hope as Sioban!

    You guys are horrible ^ personally i think she looks great for age and even looks better than people half her age! She has never gone under the knife just had little injections to make her face a bit perkier whats wrong with that!? And to be honest i kindaa glad they split and she needs the money for hugh! He still lives at home with mommy and she buys him stuff and pays for his education and food! So as his father Alan should contribute! But i do agree the skirt and leggins aren’t great. she suits the top though and no matter what you or other people say she still remains my idol <3
