"Star Trek" actor William Shatner filed for divorce from his wife, Elizabeth, after 18 years of marriage, according to reports.

The couple allegedly separated in February and now Shatner has officially filed the paperwork, TMZ revealed on Tuesday. EOnline! confirmed the divorce filing.

A prenuptial agreement was in place when the two got hitched in 2001 and they do not share any children together.

Elizabeth is the fourth wife of the veteran actor. The 88-year-old celebrity was previously married to Nerine Kidd, Marcy Lafferty and Gloria Rand, with whom he shares two daughters- Lisabeth Shatner, 58, and Leslie Carol, Fox News noted.

Kidd accidentally drowned in a swimming pool in 1999 but Shatner had filed for divorce shortly before her death. 

"After my third wife, Nerine, drowned in our swimming pool, I was twisted in grief. I was completely lost. Nerine was an alcoholic and I had failed to save her," Shatner wrote in his 2018 book "Live Long and …What I Learned Along the Way." He went on to describe his pain as the type that "makes you think either I’m simply going to die or I’m going to kill myself."

Two years later, Shatner married Elizabeth.
