According to Basinger’s spokeswoman, Annette Wolf, on Friday, the Oscar-winning actress filed for divorce from her political-activist husband, citing irreconcilable differences. Tabloids had reported the possibility of a breakup over the past few months.
Documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court stated that Basinger and Baldwin have been separated since Dec. 5. Baldwin is living at the couple's New York residence while Basinger, along with the couple’s daughter, Ireland, 5, are living in Los Angeles, Wolf said.
Basinger was previously married to makeup artist Ron Britton, whom she divorced in 1989 after nine years of marriage.
