UPDATE On Country Marriage Ending in Divorce and Restraining Order

by Vanessa Ryan

We are not happy with the news of the Country Union ending. It makes us very sad. :( We love both Randy Houser and his wife Jessa.

After careful consideration and a trial separationRandy filed for divorce in March after being married for 2 years. They were married in September 2011 in the Dominican Republic and had their son West in March of 2012.

"I can confirm Randy Houser and Jessa Lee Yantz are getting a divorce," a rep for the singer tells PEOPLE. "They are appreciative of the media's sensitivity toward their request for privacy during this time."

The couple will continue to share joint custody, and Houser will spend several days a week with his son when he is not on tour.


Jessa is a singer/songwriter who once auditioned for American Idol .

As if that news isn't sad enough...according to TMZ,Randy Houser has asked a judge for a restraining order blocking Jessa from going on vacation with him.

Randy and Jessa had planned a Bahamas vacation before the split, renting a house. Now, Randy wants the house entirely to himself, but Jessa says she has a right to go without him for at least part of the time, especially because she and her friends have already made travel arrangements. Randy doesn't want her around.

Randy is now asking the judge to order Jessa not to interfere with his R&R ... and to stay clear of the beach villa that he's renting this summer.

What?

This seems rather petty to us. Of course, we don't know all the details, but anytime TMZ gets involved in a story you know it's dirty.
