Blackish actor Laurence Fishburne files for divorce from wife of 15 years Gina Torres


Laurence Fishburne has filed for divorce from his wife of 15 years, Gina Torres.

On Friday TMZ reports that the 56-year-old Blackish actor made the move after it was revealed in September that the Hollywood couple actually secretly split a year ago. In divorce documents, they listed October 14, 2016 as the date of separation.

The two are asking to share custody of their 10-year-old daughter Delilah and they want to block the judge from giving either of them spousal support.

The site added the exes spent the past year working with their attorneys on how to split their assets.

 In documents obtained by the site, Laurence said, 'The parties have entered into an agreement in disposition of property which will be submitted for approval.' Now they are waiting for the judge to sign off on it.

In September Gina shared the statement: 'With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.'

Gina, 48, was seen last month kissing Utah-based real estate businessman Kevin Wright, a divorced dad-of-six, during an outing in Los Angeles, the New York Post reported.



A source told the paper Wright is 'the opposite of a Hollywood guy' and 'just a cowboy type' - which is a plus after her marriage to the Hollywood mainstay.

'I think when you’ve been married a long time and you become single, you look for someone that has what your ex was missing,' the source said.

R'I think [Gina] finds in Kevin what she didn’t find in [Fishburne] ... he’s an "I’m going to go ride my horse" type of guy.'

Gina said in a statement in September that she and the Boyz n the Hood actor 'quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year.'

The Suits actress made clear that things were cordial in the parting, as she said that 'there are no bad guys here,' but 'only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.

'Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe.

'As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.'

Fishburne also has two children with ex-wife Hajna O. Moss, daughter Montana and son Langston.
