“We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We’ll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed,” the couple said in a statement.
Shortly after the statement was released Judd tweeted: “Family forever. @dariofranchitti.”
Franchitti also sent a tweet of his own: “@ashleyjudd family forever.”
The couple was married in December 2001 in a castle in Scotland, Franchitti’s home country.
Franchitti won the Indianapolis 500 last year, the third time he has won the race.
Judd, 44, and Franchitti, 39, do not have any children together.
