The 38-year-old actress filed divorce papers in Los Angeles on Monday citing irreconcilable differences with the “Manchester by the Sea” star. In the documents, Phoenix states that she and Affleck separated back in November of 2015, although they didn’t announce their separation until March of 2016.
Affleck already seems to have moved on. Although the 41-year-old actor showed up solo on the red carpet of the Academy Awards, he arrived at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in June with girlfriend Floriana Lima on his arm.
The Academy Award-winning actor and Phoenix have two sons together: Indiana, 13, and Atticus, 9. Phoenix is requesting joint physical and legal custody of the two children. (RELATED: Jennifer Garner And Ben Affleck Certainly Don’t Look Divorced)
