STAR JONES GIVES HUBBY THE BOOT!

Star Jones has kicked husband Al Reynolds out of their New York home and decided she wants a divorce, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.

Frustrated over the cancellation of her latest TV show and Al's failure to contribute financially to their 3 1/2-year marriage, the former star of The View gave 37-year-old Al the boot in late January, sources say.

"They hadn't been seeing eye to eye for months and had already spent a great deal of time apart," a close friend told The ENQUIRER.

"Finally, Star decided it was over. She told Al at the end of January that he had 30 days to get his act together or 'get out.'"

The couple showed up at the Baby Phat fashion show in New York City on Feb. 1 — but within days, Star, 45, decided she'd had enough and told Al to get out, said the close friend.

"Al moved some of his things out of their Upper East Side apartment and returned to Miami, where he'd already been spending a lot of time recently," the close friend revealed.

Another source close to the couple confirmed the split to The ENQUIRER, divulging: "Star is planning to divorce Al. He moved his things out of their New York City home and into a place in Miami. He is trying to make a fresh start."

Star — who's admitted to losing 160 pounds after undergoing gastric bypass surgery — has also been devastated by the nonstop "gay Al" rumors that have haunted their marriage.

The close friend revealed: "Star pretended the rumors didn't bother her, but deep down they really hurt her. She is devastated over the breakup — and now she has to deal with filing divorce papers."
