(Newser) SNL veteran and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart yesterday, the New York Daily News reports, making official a longstanding split. Morgan and his wife, Sabina, have been separated for 8 years. “Basically they were divorced without the paperwork,” says one friend. “It seems like he has had a different girlfriend every 5 months or so.”

Documents in the case, including the reason for the split, are sealed. In January Sabina threatened to divorce him over his drinking problem; Morgan has been charged with drunk driving multiple times. The two have been married for 23 years, and have three sons.
