Colton Haynes has filed for divorce from his husband Jeff Leatham just six months after they wed in a star-studded ceremony officiated by Kris Jenner.

The Teen Wolf and American Horror Story star, 29, filed separation documents on Tuesday, entertainment website TMZ reported.

Rumours of their split surfaced last week but the reason for the divorce remains unclear. Documents seen by TMZ apparently cite “irreconcilable differences.”

Haynes, also a singer, has dismissed suggestions of infidelity, after the lyrics of his single “Man It Sucks” raised eyebrows. “Jeff would never cheat,” he tweeted.

“He’s an amazing man. Please stop being mean to him. The song I wrote was about a past relationship.”

Haynes married Leatham, the 46-year-old florist for the Kardashian family, in October last year.

The pair wore matching suits in a star-studded ceremony in Palm Springs which was officiated by Kris Jenner.

After the ceremony, Haynes posted ecstatically on Twitter: “I can’t wait for y’all to see our wedding photos! They are epic & I’m still in shock & so happy 🙂 Married life feels so incredible”

On Instagram, he added: “Last night I married the man of my dreams. I’m still crying happy tears. I love you & am excited to spend the rest of my life with you.”

The couple became engaged on Valentine’s Day last year with help from Cher, who recorded a special video message for Haynes which played as Leatham popped the question.

Last September, Haynes revealed how he met Leatham in a post on Instagram.

“Since it’s technically @jeffleatham ‘s birthday in Paris right now (his actual bday here is tmrw the 7th)…I’m celebrating him by sharing a little story of how we met…at this very spot,” he said.

“Jeff & I were supposed to meet 4 yrs ago through a set up date from our dear friend @valvogt.

“I wasn’t in a very good place at the time & we lived in different places so we both decided not to meet (but we did do a little bit of internet stalking and I loved what I saw :)…

“Flash to yrs later when we happened to randomly run into eachother at the airport lounge in Paris where Jeff hit me with his bag & said ‘Hey punk…aren’t you Colton?’ & after 10 seconds of literal love at first mtg…I responded ‘Hi Jeff’ and couldn’t find words to say cause I was dumbstruck.

“So after he physically accosted me lol he then carried my bags to the plane where we sat just 3 rows away from each other.

“After passing post it notes back and forth & sending Champagne love letters…Jeff asked me to come cuddle with him on the plane & from that day on…my life has forever been changed.

“There aren’t words to express how kind, loving, beautiful, & talented this man is & im so lucky to get to spend not just his birthday with him…but also life with him.

“Ur my rock. I love you. Happy Birthday boo bah.”
