Actor Laurence Fishburne and his wife of 15 years Gina Torres have officially hit splitsville. Fishburne filed for divorce on November 3rd according to Us Weekly.
The Black-ish actor cited they are divorcing due to irreconcilable differences. He’s asking for joint and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter Delilah. They have also reached an agreement amicably about how to split their assets.
Torres announced that the two were separated in September after she was spotted locking lips with a new mystery man at Los Angeles’ Sweet Butter Cafe. The Suits star released a statement last month regarding her and her longtime partner parting ways.
“With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year,” she said in a statement. “There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.”
The two were married in September of 2002.
Despite their separation, the former couple seems to be far from bitter.
“Our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side,” Torres added.
