6 of 143: Dennis Quaid reportedly filed for divorce from his third wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, over a month after she filed for legal separation.

The divorce papers were filed in LA Superior Court on Friday, November 30, according to E! News. Quaid cited irreconcilable differences in his filing and is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple's 5-year-old twins, the outlet reports.

Quaid lists the date of separation as October 1 and expressed he is willing to pay spousal support. When Buffington-Quaid filed for legal separation in October, she also sought joint legal and but sole physical custody of the children.

Buffington-Quaid, a former real-estate agent from Texas and Quaid's wife of eight years, initially filed for divorce in March, claiming the relationship had 'become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.'

She then withdrew the filing in May, reportedly intending to 'keep working' on their marriage.
