Casey Affleck's wife of 9 years, Summer Phoenix, is filing for divorce, and according to her the split's been a longtime coming.
Summer filed the divorce petition Monday in Los Angeles ... citing irreconcilable differences. The couple has 2 sons -- 13-year-old Indiana and 9-year-old Atticus. In the docs, she requests joint physical and legal custody of the boys.
In the docs, she lists their date of separation as November 2015 -- although they didn't announce the split until March 2016. Point is... things had long since been on the rocks when Casey won the Oscar for Best Actor earlier this year.
Summer is asking for spousal support and attorney fees.
Another Affleck bites the dust. Although unlike Ben, Casey didn't sleep with the nanny... That we know of. This is going to sound weird but does this make Casey Affleck even better of an actor. I only bring up that hot take because if you think about it, while he was filming "Manchester By The Sea," he was having personal problems... AND HE STILL DELIVERED ONE OF THE BEST PERFORMANCES EVER! Any time I am in the middle of girl drama everything in my life just shuts down. So that's saying something.
Anyway, it's always said when a family splits up, especially when there are kids involved. Hopefully the fact that they have been separated for a while means this won't be a nasty divorce.
