Elizabeth Hurley's divorce from businessman Arun Nayar has been finalized following their split last year.
The divorce decree was granted in a London court on Wednesday. Neither party was present, reports the Associated Press. The grounds given for the divorce was Nayar's "unreasonable behavior."
The actress, now 46, married Nayar in a civil ceremony at a castle in England in 2007 after dating since 2003. She has a 9-year-old son, Damian, with her ex Stephen Bing, and dated Hugh Grant for 13 years before that.

Elizabeth Hurley filed for divorce from Arun Nayar, her husband of four years, on Friday, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

At the time, the model-actress took to Twitter to explain: "For the record, my husband Arun and I separated a few months ago. Our close friends & family were aware of this."

Elizabeth Hurley has gone country.
Inspired by her life with husband Arun Nayar and son Damian, 6, on their bio-dynamic farm in the English countryside, the actress-model, 43, tells PEOPLE, she is "developing a line of products … with a view that they're not only going to be healthy, because they're organic, but I'm obsessed that women find alternatives to eat which are low in fat."
Hurley, a dedicated supporter of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, spoke to PEOPLE in New York Thursday before flipping a switch to light up Bloomingdale's in pink for the month of October – to raise awareness for breast cancer.
She says her organic farm produces low-fat products, which may help reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Elizabeth Hurley says that if she and ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant had stayed together, she might have a bundle of children by now.
"Sometimes Hugh and I can get morbid and say we could have had five children by now because we were together since we were 21," Hurley tells Harper’s Bazaar in its July issue. "There was never a time when either of us wanted it."
Though Hurley, 43, and Grant, 47, broke up in 2000 after dating for 13 years, the two have remained very close friends and present in each other's lives. Grant is the godfather to Hurley's 6-year-old son Damian (with Hollywood producer Steve Bing).
