Cuba Gooding Jr. is calling it quit to his marriage. The The People v. O.J. Simpson star filed for divorce from his wife Sara Kapfer after 22 years of marriage.
According to court documents, the actor is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter. He’s also willing to give spousal support upon citing irreconcilable differences.
This comes after Sara filed for legal separation from her husband back in August of 2014. According to court documents, Cuba’s wife stated that the couple married on March 13, 1994 but legally separated on April 16, 2014.
While the couple has tried to keep much of their romantic life private, the pair recently stepped out to attend The Weinstein Company and Netflix’s Golden Globes party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Spectators had been wondering why the two had been so close together and Cuba went on The Steve Harvey Show to explain their situation.”Officially I’m still married, it’s just you know how some marriages go. Sometimes you take a break or two. All I’m saying is my life is what it is right now,” he explained to Steve Harvey. “I took her to see a movie the other day. We’ve got kids man, we’ve got to keep this together.”
