Washington D.C. [USA]], Aug 01 (ANI): After almost 10 years of marriage, Casey Affleck's wife Summer Phoenix has finally filed for divorce from the Oscar winning actor.

"Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix have amicably separated," Affleck's rep told People in 2016, "They remain very close friends". According to divorce papers filed by the 'the Believer' actress, the couple actually separated in November 2015 due to irreconcilable differences and Phoenix has requested joint physical and legal custody of the children according to TMZ.
