david archuleta and dad 'American Idol' runner up David Archuleta's parents file for divorceA month after James “Jeff” Archuleta was arrested for allegedly soliciting a prostitute, he and wife Lupe Marie Archuleta have filed for divorce.

This is actually the second time the couple has filed for divorce. The first time was in 2002 but they called it off because David’s singing career was taking off. This time, the couple has cited irreconcilable differences and have agreed to share custody of their three minor children. They have two children over the age of 18, including “American Idol” runner-up David Archuleta.

Jeffrey has requested that Lupe pay him $349/month in child support. Back in January, Archuleta Sr. was involved in a sting at the Queens of Reiki massage
business and in June pleaded no contest to solicitation

This is coming just days after David Archuleta released his holiday album Christmas from the Heart.
