Laurence Fishburne has officially filed for divorce from his wife, Gina Torres, after 15 years of marriage.

According to documents obtained by ET, the 56-year-old actor filed the papers on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences. Fishburne is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Delilah. The docs also state that the parties have entered into an agreement on disposition of property and that the actor has asked to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to both him and Torres.
The estranged couple tied the knot on Sept. 22, 2002, and while they list their date of separation as Oct. 14, 2016, the two first announced their separation in September of this year.
 “With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected,” Torres told ET at the time.
“Happily, however, our family remains intact 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.”
