Hollywood actor Forest Whitaker has filed for divorce from his wife, Keisha Nash Whitaker.

The couple has been married for 22 years, but according to the divorce petition obtained by RadarOnline, Whitaker cites the reason for his filing as “irreconcilable differences.” 

Whitaker, 57, met his current wife Nash, 46, on the set of Blown Away in 1994 and they were married just two years later.

They have two children together, Sonnet Noel, 22, and True, 20. The children are too old for Whitaker to have to pay any child support, but he has also stated that he does not want to have to shell out for any spousal support to Nash nor her legal fees.

Whitaker has not addressed the divorce publicly, but his most recent tweet reads:

“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.”
