Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sara Kapfer
Add the Jerry Maguire actor to the list of big-name celebs who broke it off with their longtime life partner. TMZ reported that Cuba Gooding Jr. filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart and wife of 22 years, Sara Kapfer. Gooding Jr., who shares three children with Kapfer, reportedly listed irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
While still sad, the news wasn’t exactly unexpected as Kapfer had previously filed for separation in 2014 (via E! News).
Jane Fonda and Richard Perry
The Academy Award-winning actress split from her longtime partner, record producer Richard Perry, after eight years together. Perry confirmed the breakup to E! News, stating that the pair’s “romantic relationship is over.”
He also noted that he and Fonda are “definitely extremely good friends” and still have “a great deal of love for each other.”
As could be expected, the two also decided to sell their shared Los Angeles home (via Forbes), listing the five-bedroom mansion for an astounding $13 million.
Lea DeLaria and Chelsea Fairless
Orange Is the New Black’s Lea DeLaria announced her split from fiancée Chelsea Fairless in January. Sharing the couple’s previous engagement announcement—which featured DeLaria and Fairless’ faces photoshopped into a picture from Liza Minnelli’s wedding to David Gest—the comedian told her Instagram followers, “Apparently this was an eerily prophetic choice of engagement photo as our relationship has since gone the way of David and Liza, with one small exception: our split is amicable.”
DeLaria continued, “Please exclude us from the tragic and basic celebrity breakup narrative. We were happy together for four years and will remain in each other’s lives.”
