After 17 years of marriage, funnyman George Lopez and his wife Ann Sorrano are divorcing, his rep confirmed to

“George and Ann Lopez have made the decision to end their 17 year marriage. The decision is amicable and by mutual agreement. They remain dedicated parents, and committed partners in business and their philanthropic organization, The Lopez Foundation,” Lopez’s rep said in a statement on Monday.

When it was discovered in 2004 that Lopez suffered from a genetic condition that caused his kidneys to deteriorate, it was his wife Ann who successfully donated one of her kidneys to her husband.

The couple was married in 1993 and have a 15-year-old daughter together, Mayan Lopez.

On Sunday, George attended the Ultimate Slam PaddleJam- a celebrity ping pong tournament that raises money for charity- by himself. He kept a jolly face throughout the event, joking around with doubles partner Greg Grunberg and fellow participants Aimee Garcia, Hal Sparks, and LMFAO.

However, as late as last week, George and Ann stepped out as a united front. On September 23, they attended PADRES Contra El Cancer’s 25th Anniversary Gala where George was honored. They walked arm in arm together down the red carpet, happily posing for photographers.
