Forest Whitaker has filed for divorce from wife Keisha Nash Whitaker after 22 years of marriage.
In documents obtained by ET, the 57-year-old actor submitted the paperwork to end his marriage on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences as reason for the split.
The pair got married on May 4, 1996. Whitaker lists the couple’s date of separation as TBD. They share two daughters together: Sonnet, 22, and True, 20, and each has a child from previous relationships.
Per the documents, the “Black Panther” actor is asking to terminate the court’s ability to award support to Nash. Their property will be ascertained and divided at a later date. Whitaker asks that each party be responsible for their own attorney’s fees. The Blast was first to report the divorce.
Forest and Keisha share two daughters, Sonnet and True. They also each have one child from a previous relationship.
On Chrismas Day, the Black Panther star tweeted:
Christmas is a celebration of solidarity – a time of the year when we are reminded that the bonds our families, friends, fellow citizens and beyond are based on sharing and bringing joy. #MerryChirstmas to you all! 🎁
