Casey Affleck’s wife files for divorce after 10 years of marriage
Casey Affleck and his estranged wife, Summer Phoenix’s marriage is finally over.
According to E! News, Summer Phoenix on Monday filed for divorce to end their 10 years of marriage.
The couple, who have two sons together, 13-year-old Indiana and 9-year-old Atticus, announced in March 2016, that they have been living separately since November 2015.
Phoenix, the youngest sibling of actors Joaquin and River, cited irreconcilable differences and requested joint physical and legal custody of their sons, as well as spousal support.
The actors met in 1995 when Affleck co-starred with Phoenix in “To Die For.”
They began dating in 2000, got engaged in 2003 and were married in 2006.
Affleck, who won the 2017 Oscar for best actor for his role in “Manchester by the Sea,” was sued by two women in 2010 who accused him of sexual harassment on the set of the movie “I’m Still Here.”
He settled both lawsuits out of court for undisclosed amounts and has continued to deny the allegations against him.
Casey Afleck is the younger brother of actor and Director Ben Afleck.
