Hollywood actor Slater divorces
Christian Slater and Ryan Haddon
The couple have a son and a daughter together
Actor Christian Slater's divorce from television producer Ryan Haddon has been made official, court papers show.

The couple, who married on Valentine's Day in 2000, separated in January last year citing irreconcilable differences.

Slater, 37, is best known for his roles in Heathers and True Romance. He recently starred in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in London's West End.

He has two children by Ms Haddon, 35, but it is not clear whether his request for joint custody has been granted.

At the time of their separation, Slater's publicist said the couple remained on amicable terms and were "committed to raising their two young children together".

The split followed an altercation in November 2003, in which Ms Haddon was arrested for allegedly hitting Slater with a glass in a Las Vegas hotel room.

No charges were brought against her.

Slater's most recent film is Bobby, which deals with the 1968 death of US senator Robert Kennedy.

The actor was arrested in May last year for allegedly groping a woman's bottom in New York.

A judge later dismissed sexual harassment charges against him on the condition he committed no criminal offence for six months.
