Daniel Baldwin made a tough decision Wednesday.
The actor filed for divorce from wife Joanne Smith, just two weeks shy of their fourth wedding anniversary. The news comes just one day after he filed a temporary restraining order against the former British fashion model turned chef.PHOTOS: Major celebrity splits
"Due to recent events in our home and for the safety of my children and myself, I have made this decision," Baldwin, 50, tells TMZ. "I have had my share of problems with drugs and alcohol many years ago and know first hand how difficult a position she is in."
Baldwin, who appeared in four episodes of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," married Smith on July 28, 2007. They have two daughters together: Avis Ann, 3, and Finley Rae Martineau, nearly 2.
The judge who issued the restraining order gave Baldwin temporary custody.
