TMZ reports that the Spy Kids star, 23, filed for divorce from film producer Covel, 36, after less than two years of marriage (the pair wed in October 2010).
Though her divorce filing -- in which she cites irreconcilable differences -- was fairly recent, Vega lists the couple's separation date as March 5, several months before she decided to make the split official.
At a Los Angeles event in May, an eyewitness told Us Weekly that Vega was pretty open about her current relationship status, telling fellow guests she was in the midst of a split, but that she's fine and believes everything happens for a reason.
Indeed, it seems the actress is doing her best to remain optimistic about her situation.
"I believe that either you control your attitude or it controls you," she tweeted on Monday.
