Los Angeles - Cuba Gooding Jr and Sara Kapfer have reportedly split up.

The Oscar-winning actor's wife filed court documents seeking a legal separation from the Jerry Maguire star on Tuesday after 20 years of marriage.

According to gossip website, Sara wants joint legal and physical custody of their children, Spencer, Mason and Piper, and child support will be determined at a later date.

The couple tied the knot in 1994 after meeting in high school.

Just last year, the The Butler star, 46, gushed about being married to Sara on The View, but he admitted he was struggling to find time to be with his family while performing in The Trip to Bountiful on Broadway.

He said: "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.

"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."

He added: "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." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
