The Hollywood couple reportedly shared a tumultuous marriage marred early on by a report of spousal battery just months after the pair had wed in 2004. According to initial reports, Lane accused Brolin of having hit her during an altercation, however never pressed charges, People.com reported.

Citing sources close to the actor, US Weekly reported that earlier in the year that Brolin checked into a Northern California clinic seeking help for substance abuse.

"He realized he needed help and is committed to his sobriety," a source told the mag.

In early November, an apparently inebriated Brolin was caught on tape fighting with a bouncer outside a Santa Monica pub at 2 a.m. The two men eventually hugged it out before the bouncer called a cab for Brolin, TMZ reported.

On Nov. 4, Brolin told TMZ that he was quitting drinking, in response to questions about whether he regretted the events from the previous weekend.

"Completely done," he said at the time.

Brolin is the son of actor James Brolin, who is married to Barbra Streisand. Brolin played President George W. Bush in Oliver Stone's "W" in 2008, and is also known for his roles in "No Country for Old Men," "Milk," and "Gangster Squad."

Diane Lane, who's starred in such films as "Unfaithful," "The Perfect Storm," and "Man of Steel," among many others, has reclaimed her premarital name, having taken Brolin's surname after they wed.

The former couple has no children together.
