After 20 years, Kenny G and his wife Lyndie Benson are calling it quits.

Benson filed for legal separation citing irreconcilable differences in Los Angeles County Superior court on January 18, according to documents obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com.

The couple wed on April 5, 1992 and has two sons together Max and 14-year-old Noah. The date of separation is to be determined. Balynda Benson-Gorelick is asking for joint legal custody of Noah, who is a minor. She is requesting that Kenny G, whose full name is Kenneth Bruce Gorelick, have child visitation rights.

The documents also state that Benson-Gorelick wants the musician to pay the attorneys fees and to be ordered to give her spousal support.

Kenny G, 55, is a world renowned saxophone player and is reportedly worth $50 million, according to TMZ, who first reported the news of the split.
