Valerie Bertinelli and estranged husband Tom Vitale continue their divorce proceedings.

After the Golden Globe winner, 62, filed for divorce last month from Vitale, 58, after more than 10 years of marriage, he asked Thursday for spousal support in documents filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court obtained by PEOPLE.

In the documents, Vitale also tries to prevent Bertinelli from requesting spousal support, in addition to disputing the validity of their prenuptial agreements.

Bertinelli filed for divorce from the financial planner in November, citing “irreconcilable differences” and later amended her petition to file for divorce in May.

The Hot in Cleveland star married Vitale in 2011 in a New Years Day ceremony at their cliffside home in Malibu, after several years of dating. They were introduced by her brother Patrick.

She later told PEOPLE that she was “happier than ever” after the wedding. “I could have spent the rest of my life with Tom and not be married, but I wanted to call him ‘my husband’.” I really wanted to share my feelings for Tom with the people I love,” said Bertinelli.

Bertinelli was previously married to Eddie Van Halen from 1981 to 2007, and they shared son Wolfgang, 31. Eddie died of a stroke at age 65 in October 2020, after suffering from cancer of the throat and lungs.

The One day at a time alum told how she said goodbye to her “soulmate” Eddie in her memoir Enough already: learning to love as I am now, sharing a snippet exclusively in a January issue of PEOPLE.

“We were portrayed as a mismatch,” she wrote. “The bad boy rock star and America’s sweetheart, but privately Ed wasn’t the person people thought he was and neither was I.”

“‘I love you’ are the last words Ed says to Wolfie and me, and they are the last words we say to him before he stops breathing,” Bertinelli added.

Bertinelli admitted to PEOPLE that her love for Eddie was not a factor in the decision to divorce Vitale. “We grew apart,” she said in January. “The decision has nothing to do with my love for Ed. I wish Tom all the best and I know he feels the same for me.”
