'Starship Troopers' Star Casper Van Dien & Catherine Oxenberg Split

By Johnny Lopez

They say it happens in threes ...

On the heels of Anthony Anderson and Kaley Cuoco's respective breakups, now it's been revealed that Starship Troopers hunk Casper Van Dien has filed for divorce from his former Dynasty star wife Catherine Oxenberg.

The 46-year-old is citing irreconcilable differences in the split from his spouse of 16 years, reported TMZ.

The attractive duo - who wed in May 1999 - have two children together, 11-year-old Celeste and 14-year-old Amanda.

Dien is reportedly requesting joint legal and physical custody, but isn't asking to give or get any spousal support. Sounds amicable enough, right?

Oxenberg - who is best known for her role as Amanda Carrington on the '80s nighttime soap - is of royal lineage as her birth mother is Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia.

Casper and Catherine, 54, met while filming the 1999 TV movie The Collectors and married shortly thereafter. They continued to work together by appearing in the Lifetime reality series I Married a Princess and the 2006 television drama Watch Over Me.

They also starred in this summer's amazingly terrible Syfy film Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf. DVR alert!

This was the second marriage for the two Hollywood veterans. Back in 1998, Catherine wed famed producer Robert Evans for nine days before getting an anullment.

While Casper was hitched to Robert Mitchum's granddaughter Carrie Mitchum from 1993 - 1997, with whom he has two daughters.

We're just a few days in and it's already the autumn of breakups!
