Hollywood superstar Dennis Quaid has confirmed reports that his wife has filed for divorce, insisting he hopes for privacy as they work towards a satisfactory settlement.
Kimberly Buffington-Quaid had filed legal documents on March 9 to end their eight-year marriage and was seeking spousal support, a share of the actor's assets, and the cost of her lawyer's fees, Daily Star reported.
"We can confirm that Kimberley Quaid has filed for divorce. Contrary to what has been reported, a satisfactory settlement is being worked out for both parties. We will not be providing any further information on this private matter," a statement from Dennis reads.
A temporary order has been put in place giving the two joint custody of their four-year-old twins.
This marks the end of the 57-year-old star's third marriage - he was previously wed to Meg Ryan and actress P J Soles.
