Comedian Adam Carolla is asking the court to order joint custody of his two children in the divorce case with his ex-wife, Lynette.

According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, 'The Adam Carolla Show' star filed for dissolution of marriage on May 5, 2021. In the documents, Adam is asking a court to order joint custody of his two children (Natalia and Santino "Sonny" Carolla) to be split between him and his ex-wife.

Interestingly, Adam did not fill in the area where the filing party says the date of the couple's separation.

Adam Carolla Claims 'Irreconcilable Differences' As Reason For Divorce

In the legal documents, Adam didn't specify which one of the parties will receive spousal and child support in the case. In California, if the couple has no prenuptial agreement, the support is calculated by looking at both of their incomes.

In other words, if Adam or his ex-wife make more money than the other, they will pay support based on the discrepancy. Plus, the couple will split their community property (houses, cars, bank accounts, etc.) right down the middle.

Carolla cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for the split, and says the couple had been married for 17 years 5 months prior to their divorce.

Comedian Says He Is Just 'Very Different' From Estranged Wife


The radio personality broke the news about the couple's split on his podcast, saying that he and his ex-wife are just "very different."

"It's been a difficult time," he said. Adding, "We've been together for 25 years, we're very different human beings, we have different sets of philosophies, that's for sure. It's not an event, it's not somebody was cheating, it's not chronic gambling or COVID, it's really just two people that were just that different and just had completely different processes and approaches to life and just couldn't meet in the middle somewhere."

He continued, "It's hard, it's a weird thing. Everyone gets divorced — or a lot of people get divorced … but it just never was in my cards. I guess I didn't have it as an option. My thing was like, whatever isn't working, we'll make it work. But ultimately, if you can't make it work then it's probably for the good, so I'm in a pretty good place."
