As part of their divorce pact, Davis and Jarrahy said they would change the last names for their sons from Davis-Jarrahy to Jarrahy, with Davis as their second middle name, according to court docs.
Jarrahy initially filed for the split in May of 2018, citing irreconcilable differences and listing the date of separation as November 15, 2017.
The Academy Award-winning actress subsequently said in court docs in September 2018 that she and Jarrahy were never legally wed, as they did not get a marriage license or pay the related fees when they lad a ‘marriage-like ceremony’ in the Hamptons in 2001.
The A League of Their Own star told the court that the then-couple ‘affirmatively decided not to obtain a marriage license’ in either New York or California, as they had ‘never intended to marry.’

Jarrahy, who is Iranian-American, said in court docs that the marriage to the Thelma & Louise actress was legally binding because his father, who officiated the proceedings, was an officiant under Islamic law, the Los Angeles Daily News reported in 2019.
The Grey’s Anatomy alum was in three previous marriages: to restaurateur Richard Emmolo from 1982–83; actor Jeff Goldblum from 1987 to 1990; and filmmaker Renny Harlin from 1993 to 1998.
Davis chat with Good Housekeeping in 2006 about discussions she had with Jarrahy prior to getting married.
‘I did say to Reza, “You’re about to become someone’s fourth husband. What on earth are you thinking?”‘ she said. ‘But as for myself, I wasn’t nervous at all. I really did feel that I had turned a corner, that I had pulled off changes that were real and permanent.
‘And it was exciting to know I was marrying someone who I can be cranky or selfish in front of and he doesn’t run screaming from the room or judge me for it. It’s like I discovered a whole other way to live.’
