Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], August 5 (ANI): Casey Affleck has finally responded to Summer Pheonix' divorce filing. According to E! Online, in the court documents, Casey also cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and sought joint legal and physical custody of their two children, Indiana, 13, and Atticus, 9. However, regarding spousal support, Affleck did ask to "terminate the court's ability to award support to petitioner," which Summer had originally requested. According to a source, "the divorce was amicable and this was all done with ease. Casey is paying spousal support." Meanwhile, the actress and the youngest sibling of the famous Phoenix dynasty filed for divorce from the Manchester by the Sea star on Monday after separating in March 2016. The former couple originally met in 1995 after Summer's brother, Joaquin Phoenix, introduced them. They began dating shortly thereafter and got engaged in 2003 and ended up tying the knot in 2006. They announced their separation in March 2016. Still, despite their split, Casey thanked her during his acceptance speech after winning Best Actor at the 2017 Golden Globes. (ANI)
