After 20-years of marriage, Anthony Anderson and his high school sweetheart, Alvina are calling it quits.

According to TMZ, Alvina filed the divorce document citing irreconcilable differences and is asking for spousal support and joint legal custody and for their 15-year old son, Nathan (who joined Anthony on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards). The couple also has a 19-year-old daughter named Kyra. 

Alvina states the date of their separation as early as April 1 of last year. Anderson’s rep told E! News, “Yes, the divorce papers are public record and they have been separated for some time now.”

Alvina did not accompany the Black-ish star to the 2015 Emmy Awards, where he was nominated for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy.
