Cuba Gooding Jr.

Wife Files for Separation

... After 20 Years

Marriage was NOT as good as it gets for Cuba Gooding Jr.'s wife -- she just filed for separation from the Oscar-winning actor after 20 years of marriage, TMZ has learned.

Sara Kapfer filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. She and Cuba were high school sweethearts and got married in 1994. They have 3 children, 2 of whom are minors.

Sara wants joint legal and physical custody. According to the docs, child support will be determined later.

It's surprising -- just last year, Cuba gushed about his wife on "The View," talking about how wonderful it is to be married to someone for so long.

First sign of trouble in a marriage is when one spouse praises the other in public.
My wife rolls her eyes and mumbles profanities about me in public so I know our marriage will last!

They were high school sweethearts before the money and fame. Sometimes a break can do good. I am with my high school love and were 7 years in May. I hope they reconcile or split and be amicable for the kids.

Man, if I were a black woman I would be real offended that these guys marry white women when they hit it big.
