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.”
