Earlier this month, Tom filed for divorce in San Diego. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, he cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.

In the papers, the date of separation is listed as December 29, 2017. DeLonge is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their two kids, Ava, 17, and Jonas, 13.

As for spousal support, Tom is asking the court to figure it out at a later date.

Tom and Jennifer were high school sweethearts before marrying in 2001.

In happier times, Tom’s relationship with Jennifer inspired Blink-182’s song “First Date” and “All the Small Things.”

Aside from the music, Tom has kept his personal life with Jennifer out of the spotlight, but has expressed his love for their kids on social media.

Last month, Tom paid tribute to Jonas, writing on Instagram, “Happy birthday to my most amazing son @jonasdelonge – one of the most joyous things about my life is being a father. He is 13 years old today!”

In July, Tom brought attention to daughter Ava on Instagram, writing, “Happy 17th birthday to my beautiful, smart and kind @avaedelonge !!! ❤️❤️.”

Jennifer’s Instagram mostly features their kids and her interior designer work. The last photo of Tom appears to be from November 2017, a month before their separation.

Rumors of their split have been swirling for awhile. Last year, an Instagram user posted on Tom’s Instagram, “@tomdelonge what's up! People are saying that you got divorced. It is true?”

Since his departure from Blink-182 in 2015, Tom has been playing with Angels & Airwaves. He is currently on tour with the band.
