'Happy Days' star Anson Williams files for divorce for the second time in a year: report

"Happy Days" alum Anson Williams has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife for the second time in the last year.

The actor, who famously played Warren "Potsie" Weber on the hit 1970s TV series, filed divorce paperwork in Los Angeles last Friday, TMZ said.

Anson has been married to his wife, Jackie Williams, for over 30 years, the outlet noted, and Anson's latest filing comes just nine months after he filed for divorce the first time last September.

In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, Anson said: "When I canceled the divorce filing in September, we agreed for the sake of the children to remain apart and to lead separate lives. However, even that arrangement didn't work and our status needed to be clarified with a decree of divorce."

Anson, 70, cited irreconcilable differences in his initial divorce filing last year, his rep confirmed to Fox News at the time.

"Despite best efforts to work things out or make allowances, and as difficult as it is, sometimes you just have to do what’s best for everyone,” Williams said in a statement via his rep.
