LOS ANGELES — Nearly two months after publicly announcing their separation, divorce is in process for actors Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres.
TMZ reported that the two have agreed about how to split their assets after 15 years of marriage.
According to The Associated Press, Fishburne cited irreconcilable differences in the filing. He is seeking joint custody of their 10-year-old daughter Delilah.
Torres issued a statement Sept. 20 confirming the two separated in Sept. 2016.
“With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year,” the statement said. “There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.
“Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.”
The statement came after Page Six published photos of the “Suits” actress kissing another man Sept. 19.
People reported that Fishburne has two children from a previous marriage named Montana and Langston.

— Dorothy Malone, who won an Oscar for her sultry role in the 1956 film “Written on the Wind” and starred in the television soap opera “Peyton Place,” died Friday in Dallas, The New York Times reported. She was 93.
Malone’s daughter, Mimi Vanderstraaten, confirmed her mother’s death, the Times reported. Malone died a few days short of her 94th birthday at the assisted living facility where she had spent the last 10 years of her life.
Malone earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in her role as Marylee Hadley, the promiscuous daughter of a Texas oil tycoon, in Douglas Sirk’s 1956 drama, Entertainment Weekly reported. Malone performed a memorable mambo dance in the movie and made a play for Rock Hudson in the steamy melodrama. She starred along with Hudson, Robert Stack and Lauren Bacall.
On television, Malone portrayed Constance Mackenzie in more than 400 episodes of “Peyton Place” from 1964 to 1968. “Peyton Place,” based on the best-selling novel by Grace Metalious. Her character had a dark secret about the birth of her daughter, played by 19-year-old Mia Farrow, and it led to a rating hit as television’s first nighttime soap opera, the Times reported.
Malone would reprise her role in two television movies, “Murder in Peyton Place” in 1977 and “Peyton Place: The Next Generation,” in 1985.
Malone’s final movie appearance came in “Basic Instinct,” when she portrayed Hazel Dobkins, a mother accused of murdering her family, Entertainment Weekly reported.
“I came up with a conviction that most of the winners in this business became stars overnight by playing shady dames with sex appeal,” Malone said in 1967. “And I've been unfaithful or drunk or oversexed almost ever since — on the screen, of course.”

The two groups first toured together in 2006.
“Twelve years ago we embarked on a US tour with Journey and it was an absolute blast,” Def Leppard bass guitarist Rick Savage said in a statement. “Looking forward to hooking up again. Believe me, this will be even more spectacular.”
Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliot spoke to Rolling Stone about the tour.
“The fact that we’re touring with Journey, and it’s putting us into huge arenas like Madison Square Garden and stadiums, that is very special for us. It’s two iconic bands touring together,” Elliot said. “It makes it more of an event when the bill is all bands that people have heard of. We went out with a really good band called Tripping Daisy in 1996, but nobody cared. But when you have people like Cheap Trick, Poison, Heart or Journey, it makes for a better night for the people in the crowd. They come in and they know what they're going to get.”
According to a news release on the tour, Journey will close half of the shows and Def Leppard will close the the other half. Tickets go on sale at LiveNation.com starting Feb. 3. Information on pre-sale and VIP tickets has not been announced.

LOS ANGELES — She has a name.
Chicago West. https://t.co/3MyLwcIzTh— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) January 19, 2018
On Tuesday, Kardashian West confirmed the Monday birth of Chicago on her official website.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” she said in a statement. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
Chicago West was born Jan. 15 at 12:47 a.m. PT and weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces. She joins big brother Saint West, 2, and big sister North West, 4.

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE her name 😍😍😍😍 hey Chi (shy) https://t.co/Ikd0ay3DsO— Khloé (@khloekardashian) January 19, 2018
It was confirmed in September that the celebrity couple were expecting a third child via gestational carrier.
People reported that Kardashian West, 37, said her decision to hire a gestational surrogate came after her two high-risk pregnancies.
“I have always been really honest about my struggles with pregnancy,” she said on her website Thursday. “Preeclampsia and placenta accreta are high-risk conditions, so when I wanted to have a third baby, doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my — or the baby’s — health to carry on my own.”
“After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier. Although I have used the term surrogate in the past, a gestational carrier is actually the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to.
“A traditional surrogate donates her egg, is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm and then carries the baby to term. Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s. You can either choose someone that you know or you can go through an agency, like Kanye and I did.

— The sisters are meeting up again, and Jackée Harry couldn’t be happier.
Harry, who played Lisa Landry on the 1990s television series “Sister, Sister,” told Steve Harvey on his talk show Tuesday that a reboot of the series was imminent, ET Online reported.
“Yeah, it’s happening,” Harry said. “I’m excited.”
“Sister, Sister” aired from 1994 to 1999. The series centered around twin sisters Tia and Tamera, who were separated at birth and adopted. Tia (Tia Mowry) was adopted by Landry, while Tamera (Tamera Mowry) was adopted by Ray Campbell (Tim Reid).
Harry was promoting her role as JoAnn Payne on “The Paynes,” but spoke fondly of her time with the twin sisters, calling them “my babies,” ET Online reported.
Rumors of a reboot were rekindled in October when Tia Mowry told ET that a reunion series was "closer than ever."
“That's basically all I can say,” she said. “But I'm getting excited.”
