Cuba Gooding Jr. and his wife Sara Gooding got married in 1994, and in 2014, she decided needed a break from him, so they split up. Three years of legal separation sounds like a dream situation for two people who don’t want to be married anymore. Getting to be single again with no messy divorce? That sounds great. Except that Cuba now wants the divorce part.
TMZ says that Cuba filed for divorce and is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter. He’s willing to give Sara spousal support, but there’s a catch. He doesn’t want her to get a piece of the money he made after she filed for legal separation in 2014. That means Sara is welcome to some of his Snow Dogs cash, but she better stay away from his American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson money. Personally, I think Sara should at least be financially compensated for the 20 years worth of “Show me the money!” jokes she’s had to put up with.
Cuba has been acting single for a while now, so I’m guessing this divorce is happening because he was getting tired of having to answer “Wellllll….” every time a woman asks if he’s married. But now that everyone knows, he’s going to want to get used to the feeling of being swarmed by crowds of women everywhere he goes. I mean, what woman wouldn’t want to get with this?
