Cuba Gooding Jr. and his wife, Sara Kapfer, are splitting after 20 years of marriage.

Kapfer, 44, filed for legal separation from the Academy Award-winning actor, 46, in L.A. Superior Court on Monday citing irreconcilable differences.

Gooding and Kapfer were high school sweethearts and have three children – sons Spencer, 19, and Mason, 17, as well as daughter Piper, 8½.

She is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two minor kids and is also requesting spousal support.

Reps for Gooding Jr. haven't commented.
