Tia Carrere has filed for a divorce from her photographer husband after seven years. According to court papers, the 43-year-old actress known best for playing Cassandra in the Wayne's World movies has cited irreconcilable differences in her split from Simon Wakelin.

Tia is seeking sole custody of the couple's 4-year-old daughter, Bianca, according to documents. This is the end of Tia's second marriage. She was previously married to Elie Samaha, who produced her obscure 1995 heist film, The Immortals.

While Tia's career has sort of fallen off the map in recent years, from 1999 to 2002 she starred in the television show Relic Hunter, and in 2007 she had a recurring role on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.
