Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr and his wife of 20 years have split. The high school sweethearts have three kids together.
Cuba Gooding Jr and Sara Kapfer have reportedly separated. Kapfer filed court documents seeking a legal separation from the Jerry Maguire star on April 22 after 20 years of marriage. According to TMZ, Kapfer wants joint custody of their kids Spencer, Mason and Piper. Child support will be determined later.
The couple tied the knot in 1994 after meeting in high school. Just last year, Gooding Jr, 46, gushed about being married on The View but admitted he was struggling to find time to be with his family while performing on Broadway in The Trip to Bountiful.
“When you do films, you’re away from the family, but I can still fly them in or fly home to see them, so... my wife and I... have this rule – never go more than three or four weeks without seeing each other," he said. “But I knew this commitment meant that I would be in New York City for a long time; I’m here possibly through September, so it’s a bit of a pull on that to keep the household together. But she allowed me to be indulgent for obvious reasons... This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
“I got a wonderful lady that knows how to run the household even when I’m not there. (And) we’re just blessed with wonderful kids,” he added. — Bang Showbiz
