The couple has been married for three years.

Rosie O'Donnell filed for divorce from wife Michelle Rounds in Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday, Page Six reported

The uncontested proceeding was reportedly initiated by O'Donnell just two weeks after her departure from ABC's The View.

On Feb. 6, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed with an ABC rep that The View host would be exiting the show to focus on her marriage (the couple has been separated for months) and family, which includes five children.

"The truth is I had a heart attack two years ago, and stress is very bad for heart attack survivors. You should minimize your stress, maximize your exercise and control your diet. That's what you need to do for a healthy heart. So that's what I'm doing. I'm minimizing my stress by leaving The View," O'Donnell explained in a video message to fans. "There's lots of stuff going on at home, and there's lots of stuff going on at work. And the only thing I can really control is the work by leaving. I can turn that volume all the way down to zero and just focus on what I need to focus on, which is my health and my family."

O'Donnell's rep declined to comment.
