Cuba Gooding Jr. and wife separate

By Tribute News on April 23, 2014 | 3 Comments

Cuba Gooding Jr. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sara Kapfer have reportedly split up. The Oscar-winning actor's wife filed court documents Tuesday seeking a legal separation from the Jerry Maguire star after 20 years of marriage. According to, Sara wants joint legal and physical custody of their children, Spencer, Mason and Piper. The couple, who were high school sweethearts, tied the knot in 1994. 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.''

    I bet it was the wife’s decision. Women are fickle. He probably never even saw it coming. Poor guy.

    I know so many guys whose wives just get tired of being married. Vows don’t seem to mean much to them.

    That’s so sad, after 20 years.
