Looks like they’ve come to the end of the road. Cuba Gooding, Jr. and his wife, Sara Kapfer, have been legally separated since 1994, but apparently, any hopes for reconciliation are over, as Gooding, Jr. has filed for divorce.

People.com reports:

The filing comes nearly three years after Kapfer filed for legal separation from Gooding Jr. in April 2014 citing irreconcilable differences. In the 2014 documents, Kapfer sought joint legal and physical custody of their two minor children (at the time) and also requested spousal support.

According to TMZ, the American Crime Story actor is asking for joint legal custody and physical custody of their daughter — Piper, 10 — and is willing to pay spousal support. He is also requesting that he keep all of his earnings from the date Kapfer filed for separation.

Gooding Jr., 49, and Kapfer were high school sweethearts and had three children together — sons Spencer and Mason and daughter, Piper — throughout their 20-plus years of marriage. They dated for seven years before tying the knot on Mar. 13, 1994.

    • Yes these black men will pass over smart beautiful black women for any kind of white women I feel people have the right to people with whomever the choose but it seems these black men especially feel like the have to have a white woman to be relevant. Sad

    Wow, neither one of them is attractive, but he could have done better. Well atleast they saw the light and decided to move on. Good luck to each one of them. SMH

    I continue to call for copy proofing prior to publishing. In the first paragraph, it states Cuba and his wife have been legally separated since 1994.Later on in the article, it states they were married that year, too. Similarly, a caption states they have been separated for three years. Come on, this is unacceptable. Quality first, please–and that includes accurate data.
