Angie Harmon, Jason Sehorn announce separation

Charlotte’s most famous celebrity couple has reportedly called it quits after 13 years of marriage.

According to multiple reports, actress Angie Harmon (star of TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles”) and former NFL player Jason Sehorn confirmed their separation this past weekend. The pair moved here in 2010 from Los Angeles with daughters Finley, now 11, Avery, 9, and Emery, 5.

The couple famously got engaged while Harmon – then a star of NBC’s “Law & Order” – was making a guest appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in March 2000. With singer Elton John on the couch next to her, Sehorn appeared, taking her by surprise; he got on one knee and proposed as Leno said, “Look at that ring! Even Elton is jealous.”

Harmon, 42, has spent portions of the past five years in Los Angeles while shooting the popular hourlong crime drama for TNT, which averages about 6 million viewers.

Sehorn, 43, previously was married for less than a year to Whitney Casey, a former CNN correspondent who had been his girlfriend since they were both students at the University of Southern California.

In a statement to media outlets, Harmon’s rep said: “For the sake of their children, they ask for respect and privacy as they navigate this time in their lives.”
