London: US actor Dennis Quaid’s wife Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, has filed for separation, just six months after she originally called off a divorce.
Buffington-Quaid, 40, is requesting joint legal and sole physical custody of the couple’s 4-year-old twins, Thomas and Zoe.
“Kimberly and Dennis Quaid have decided to legally separate after eight years of marriage,” a leading daily has quoted a representative as saying.
“They ask that their privacy and the privacy of their family be respected during this difficult time,” the representative said.
In her original divorce papers that were filed in March, Buffington-Quaid said that things between the couple had “become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”
However, in April she cancelled the divorce, saying that the couple were going to give their marriage another try.
“Kimberly is fed up with Dennis’ cheating and wants out of the marriage. He’s not a good husband,” a website has quoted a source as saying about the reason for the renewed split.
