Dennis Quaid Files for Divorce from Wife Kimberly

Dennis QuaidDon’t worry you’re not losing it. It just seems as if Dennis Quaid and his wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid broke up ages ago.

Or maybe it’s because she filed for divorce back in March, but then later changed her mind. Then fast forward to six weeks ago when she put in the papers for legal separation. After all that paperwork you would think someone would have officially deemed the couple — who are the parents to 4-year-old twins, Zoe and Thomas — splitsville by now.

But according to TMZ, the actor filed his own divorce documents on Friday, asking the Los Angeles Superior Court for joint custody of his kids.

The couple were unable to put in the paperwork any sooner as California requires they reside in the state for a minimum of six months before filing. Or maybe they just want to give everyone involved enough time to change their minds before going through all the motions. We heard it’s been known to happen.

Before joining the Hollywood.com team, Lisa spent one year traveling the world in search of culture, and a country that wasn't Kardashian obsessed. FYI: none exist. But since she wasn't born a Hilton — and therefore needed multiple jobs to pay for the many airline miles — she wrote about her trip experiences and other celebrities for 'TV Guide,' 'InTouch,' 'OK!,' 'Redbook,' 'Marie Claire' and many others. Her last job was as a senior associate editor at EW.com, and she blames her love for reality TV and teen dramas on the little amount of sleep she gets thanks to her newest title, Mom.
