I was going to post this little diddy yesterday, but then that whole Lindsay Lohan nipple slip showed up, and, well, things are just a blur after that...

People magazine has revealed that Sophia Bush is asking for an annulment of her marriage to One Tree Hill costar, Chad Michael Murray. The reason for the annulment: Fraud.

In papers released by the Los Angeles Superior Court, the actress cited "fraud" as the grounds for annulling the union. There was no explanation of the alleged fraud.

A fraud claim can be "difficult to prove," Hollywood divorce attorney Sorrell Trope told PEOPLE. If a judge denies Bush's annulment request, she can seek a divorce from Murray.

Bush, 23, and Murray, 24, who still costar on the WB show where they first met in 2003, separated in September.

"Sophia went into the marriage believing in the sanctity of marriage," a friend of the actress told PEOPLE in October, "and Chad simply did not share that vision."

Well, that's the nicest way of saying someone is a lying, cheating bastard that I've ever heard. "Chad simply did not share that vision." I'll definitely have to remember that one. But isn't that really the same as saying "he's just not that into you?"
