(Matt Sayles) (Newser) – Dennis Quaid's nearly 12-year marriage is coming to an end, the AP reports. Quaid's wife, Kimberly, filed for divorce Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. Her filing seeks joint legal custody of their 8-year-old twins as well as spousal support. The Quaids were married on July 4, 2004, and the filing says they separated Monday. The filing was first reported Tuesday by TMZ, which notes Kimberly also filed for divorce in 2012 but changed her mind. Quaid—star of The Right Stuff, The Day After Tomorrow, and much more—has been married three times, including to actress Meg Ryan.
