Dexter in his season finale, loses his love Lumen, and in real life Michael C. Hall has filed for divorce from co-star Jennifer Carpenter. After surviving cancer, this poor guy can’t seem to get a break. Why did they break up?

Michael C. Hall, born under the astrology star sign of Aquarius, is a unique and eccentric guy. Dexter must be friends with a woman first before he can fall in love. His estranged wife Jennifer Carpenter, a Sagittarius girl, is free spirited and outspoken. Did the emotional trauma of Michael having cancer, put a strain on his marriage.

Michael C. Hall, 31, and Carpenter, 31, met on the set of ‘Dexter’ and soon began dating. They married on December 28, 2008. Carpenter praised Hall to PEOPLE at the time, saying he is “the sexiest man alive. He’s one of the best we’ve got. He’s an incredible talent and if anyone deserves accolades, it’s him.”

Today Dexter’s stars reps said in a joint statement. “Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have filed for divorce,” both reps stressed the split was amicable. Astrochicks is so bummed for them. Wishing Michael and Jennifer the best.
