TMZ reports that the Oscar-winning actor has responded to his wife’s request for separation with a full-on divorce petition. His wife, Sara Gooding, filed separation docs back in 2014, and Cuba has finally responded by firing back in a major way. Reports say that the actor is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter, and he’s also willing to pay up when it comes to spousal support.

The tricky part of any breakup is splitting the assets. Cuba is asking the courts that all of his earnings remain his alone from the date that his wife of 23 years filed for separation. The pair were high school sweethearts and had three children together.

Hopefully, this divorce won’t get ugly!
