Cuba Gooding Jr. And Wife Of 20 Years Sara Kapfer Separate

Normally when we report about a celebrity marriage ending, it’s usually expected. It’s not sad or shocking because celebrities never stay with just one person!

However, Cuba Gooding Jr. and his wife seemed to have something special. They were high school sweethearts, had been married for 20 years and had three beautiful children together. They going to last forever, right? Wrong!

TMZ reports that Sara Kapfer filed for separation in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday afternoon. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split. The documents show that she requested joint physical and legal custody of their children.

Like we said, this news is a little surprising. Just last year, the 46-year-old actor went on The View and talked about how much he loved his wife.


“Like I always say, it’s been five women I’ve been with. I was with the high school girl, then the college girl, then the newlywed, and then the mother, and now she’s dealing with the kids leaving the house … She has been changing into this other woman that I have to introduce myself to every few years. And thank God I’ve fallen in love with each one. It’s true. I’m lucky that way.”

I guess the “sixth woman” didn’t find that special place in his heart. If you really think about it, maybe this news isn’t that surprising. After all, they have been together since high school. They didn’t have a lot of time to shop around and see what else is in the produce section.

It’s sad they waited so long to end things. The good news for Mr. Gooding is that he’s an actor. He might be pushing 50, but that doesn’t matter in Hollywood. He will find himself a 21-year-old model by next month.
