David Archuleta’s Father Filed For Divorce

James Jeffrey Archuleta, who is the father of American Idol runner-up David, filed for divorce from his wife Lupe Marie, a month after he was busted in a massage parlor.

Stating irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce, the estranged couple will share joint physical custody of their three minor children. They initially agreed that Lupe would pay approximately $349 a month in child support, aside from splitting the additional cost of raising their kids. They will sell the house in Murray, Utah and split the proceeds.

The couple had previously filed for divorce in 2002 but reconciled soon after David Archuleta placed first in the Star Search competition.
