Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and his wife are calling it quits after 20 years of marriage.

TMZ reports the actor’s wife, Sara Kapfer, filed for separation in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday, April 22. Kapfer cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split in documents obtained by the website. She also requested joint physical and legal custody of their children.

Gooding Jr., 46, and Kapfer, high school sweethearts, were married in 1994. They have three children.

Last year, during an interview with The View Gooding gushed about his wife and their lasting relationship.

“Like I always say, it’s been five women I’ve been with,” he said. “I was with the high school girl, then the college girl, then the newlywed, and then the mother, and now she’s dealing with the kids leaving the house … She has been changing into this other woman that I have to introduce myself to every few years. And thank God I’ve fallen in love with each one. It’s true. I’m lucky that way.”

Earlier this month, Gooding’s Pacific Palisades mansion sold for $9.8 million, the L.A. Times reported.
