Its officially a wrap. And I’m not talking about actor Laurence Fishburne’s latest TV series Black-ish. Fishburne says, ‘irreconcilable differences” is the reason he filed for divorce this week from his wife of 14 years Gina Torres.
Fishburne, 56, and Torres, 48, split in early fall 2016 after 14 years of marriage, but didn’t announce the news until this September. They have an adorable 10-year-old daughter Delilah and he wants joint custody. Torres seems to be cool with a co-parenting arrangement saying in a statement
“With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year,” Torres wrote. “There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.”
“Happily, however, our family remains intact,” she continued. “And we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe, as well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.”
The couple married in 2002. The Oscar-nominated actor also has two children from a previous marriage: Montana and Langston Fishburne.
Fishburne has an incredible body of work as an actor. Remember how he killed it in the Matrix? He looks awesome at 56. Ladies, are you interested?
