And Just Like That star Sara Ramirez has filed for divorce from husband Ryan Debolt – three years after their separation.

The non-binary actor, 48, who previously played the reviled Che Diaz on the Sex and the City reboot,  filed for a dissolution of marriage Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, per TMZ.

Per the documents Ramirez asked to block the court’s ability to award spousal support for either party.

Their date of separation is listed as January 2018 – although their split was only announced in 2021.

In the separation announcement, Sara wrote: ‘We remain loving and supportive in how we are choosing to forge our new individual paths. 

The pair tied the knot in New York in 2012 after getting engaged in Paris the year before.

‘Thank you for holding space around our choices and respecting our families’ privacy as we navigate this process on our own terms.’

In January it was revealed Ramirez has been dropped from And Just Like That because their character Che Diaz was a ‘waste of airtime,’ according to insiders, who shut down the actor’s claim that being pro-Palestine cost them the role.

Ramirez, who uses they/them pronouns, implied they will not return for the third season of the Sex and the City spin-off in a series of posts shared to Instagram that month.

They heavily suggested their time on the show was over as they claimed ‘casting directors and agents are making black lists of actors and workers who post anything in support of Palestinians and Gaza to ensure they will not work again.’

But a source close to the show ridiculed the suggestion, claiming Ramirez’s head had been ‘on the chopping block since last season’ because their character ‘held no value anymore’ and was ‘annoying.’

‘Sara was not fired because they support Palestine and the cease fire,’ they told DailyMail.com exclusively. ‘Sara was fired because Che brought nothing to the show anymore. They were on the chopping block since last season.

‘After Che split with Miranda, the character really held no value anymore and fans found them annoying. The storyline as a struggling comedian was a waste of airtime and Sara knew it.’

Che, a newcomer to the spin-off series who introduced themselves as a ‘queer nonbinary Mexican Irish diva,’ struck up a relationship with Miranda after she abandoned her marriage to husband Steve Brady.

The character was accused of being the ‘worst’ on the series, which saw Miranda reunited on screen with Carrie Bradshaw and Charlotte York, played by Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis, respectively.

Viewers found the character ‘cringe’ and accused them of ‘[setting] back non-binary representation 70 years.’
