After his wife of eight years, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, sought legal separation in October, the Vegas star filed Friday for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court.

After fighting to save their marriage for the last six months, Dennis Quaid and Kimberly Buffington-Quaid are calling it quits once more, with Kimberly filing for legal separation.

Has Dennis Quaid's marriage been saved?

It was not immediately known why. The "notice of nonsuit" was filed by her attorney on April 26.
The couple were married in 2004, and at the time the divorce was announced, a rep for the actor, 58, said the pair were working out a "satisfactory settlement."

While Dennis Quaid has been shedding light on his latest flick, Soul Surfer, his brother Randy Quaid has been in the news with wife Evi – under a dark cloud.
The troubled couple has been on the run from police since failing to appear in court several times for a felony vandalism arraignment stemming from an October 2010 incident.
Dennis, 56, who has remained relatively quiet on his brother's disappearance and criminal record, finally acknowledges that Randy, 60, is in his thoughts.
"I love my brother," Dennis told PEOPLE recently while promoting his film at L.A.'s Luxe Hotel. "That's all I can say. I love my brother and I miss my brother. That's all I'm going to say."

Expanding their brood, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick announced this week they are welcoming twin girls via a surrogate.
By not revealing any details about why they chose a surrogate, Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, have left many of their well-wishing fans with questions.

The most common variety, known as a gestational carrier, carries an embryo provided by the couple, and has no genetic relationship to the child in question (the womb-for-rent scenario). Other surrogates use sperm provided by the couple, but their own eggs.
