LOS ANGELES (AP) — British actress Talulah Riley has filed to end her second marriage to billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

Riley's filing Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court is the second attempt to end the pair's second marriage to each other. Musk filed for divorce in December 2014 but withdrew the petition seven months later.

A joint statement by Musk and Riley says they have both decided to end their marriage and will remain friends. They say they have been separated for six months.

Riley and Musk divorced in 2012, but re-married 18 months later.

Musk co-founded PayPal and has gone on to start SpaceX and Tesla Motors. Riley appeared in "Pride & Prejudice" and "Inception" and wrote and directed her first feature film, "Scottish Mussel," in 2014.

The couple first wed in 2010.
