Dennis Quaid’s Wife, Kimberly Buffington, Files for Separation

Dennis QuaidDennis Quaid and Kimberly Buffington-Quaid‘s marriage has been rocky since Buffington-Quaid first filed for divorce in March and then rescinded her papers one month later. But, after spending the past six months trying to patch things up, Buffington-Quaid seems to have decided to trust her initial instinct. On Friday, she filed for legal separation, People reports.

A representative for Quaid confirms for People, “Kimberly and Dennis Quaid have decided to legally separate after 8 years of marriage. They ask that their privacy and the privacy of their family be respected during this difficult time.”

Quaid, 58, and Buffington-Quaid, 42, have four-year-old twins together. According to TMZ, Buffington-Quaid has asked for joint legal and sole physical custody of their kids, Thomas and Zoe Grace.

This will be Quaid’s third divorce. We was married to actress P.J. Soles from 1978-1983 and Meg Ryan from 1991-2001.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
