The documents reveal that Shanina is seeking spousal support and a prenup is in place.
Shaik and her former DJ beau married in an idyllic ceremony in the Bahamas in April last year.
Page Six reports that the pairs relationship began to crumble in March of this year.
"After careful thought and consideration, Shanina Shaik and Greg Andrews [DJ Ruckus] have decided to separate. They move forward with much mutual respect and love for each other, and ask to please respect their privacy during this time,” said a rep for the model.
Shanina's social media page has been sans a photo with the 35-year-old musician since January.
Yesterday, Shanina took to Instagram to share a pensive photo, standing alone in a picturesque cobbled street covered in flowers.
The Melbourne native captioned the shot: "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations."
