COLUMBIANA, Alabama (AP) — American Idol winner Ruben Studdard is divorcing his wife of three years, saying they haven’t lived together since last year.

Court records show Studdard filed a contested divorce last week in Shelby County, where he lives in suburban Birmingham. The complaint says he and Zuri Studdard split in October 2010, and she now lives in the Atlanta suburb of Smyrna, Georgia.

The complaint cites a “complete incompatibility of temperament” for the divorce, and it asks a judge to enforce a prenuptial agreement that was signed before they wed in 2008.

Studdard was known as the “Velvet Teddy Bear” when he won the second season of American Idol in 2003. Studdard is playing host to a weekend-long event in Birmingham that begins Friday and includes a half-marathon Sunday.
