McDreamy is now McBackonthemarket. The actor's wife, beauty guru Jillian Fink Dempsey, has filed for divorce after 15 years of marriage, Us Weekly reports. A rep for the couple confirmed the split.

"It is with careful consideration and mutual respect that we have decided to end our marriage," the couple said in a joint statement. "Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of our children, and we ask with profound gratitude that you respect our family's privacy at this very sensitive time."

The Dempseys have three children, 12-year-old daughter Tallulah and seven-year-old twin sons Sullivan and Darby. Fink filed for joint custody of the children, and is said to be seeking spousal and child support.

This will be the second divorce for the Grey's Anatomy star. He was wed to Rocky Parker from 1987 to 1994, before marrying Jillian Fink in 1999. His now-estranged wife is a sought-after makeup artist who co-founded the Delux beauty brand and has collaborated with Avon. 

This sad news kind of feels like it needs a melancholy soundtrack. Got any Imogen Heap or Snow Patrol for us, Shonda Rhimes?
