Another Hollywood couple bites the dust! After 20 years of marriage, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and wife Sara Kapfer have decided to call it quits, with Sara filing for divorce on Tuesday (April 22). Say it ain’t so!

According to the legal docs obtained by TMZ, Sara — a school teacher — cited irreconcilable differences as what led to the demise of their relationship. Cuba’s now-estranged wife is playing nice, however, asking for joint custody of their three children: Spencer, 19, Mason, 17, and Piper, 8.

The Men of Honor star and Sara go way back — back to their teens! The high school sweethearts decided to take the plunge in 1994. But it seems as though happily ever after came to an end after two decades together, pretty long when it comes to Hollywood romances.

We know that Sara is looking to share time with the kids, but there’s no word on how the money will be split. According to CelebrityNetWorth, Cuba is worth a whopping $15 million, so Sara should get a pretty penny from the split.

There’s been no word from Cuba’s camp since the announcement, but we’re keeping the couple in our thoughts.
