Elliot Page files for divorce from Emma Portner

Actor Elliot Page has filed for divorce from wife Emma Portner, new court records show.

The 33-year-old “Juno” star — who recently came out as transgender — filed for a contested divorce Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Portner, 26, a professional dancer and choreographer, publicly supported Page’s decision, saying she was “so proud.”

“Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world,” Portner said in an Instagram post from Dec. 1. “I also ask for patience & privacy but that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day. Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much.”

The divorce comes just three years after the pair married in January 2018.

Reps and a lawyer for Page did not immediately return requests for comment. Portner could not immediately be reached.
