Actor ERIC DANE has vowed to “work as a team” with his estranged wife REBECCA GAYHEART to raise their two daughters as they prepare to divorce.
Scream 2 actress Gayheart filed legal papers in a Los Angeles court on Friday (16Feb18), citing irreconcilable differences for the end of their 14-year marriage.
Former Grey’s Anatomy star Dane has now shared his first comments on the separation, insisting they will remain close for the sake of their kids Billie, seven, and six-year-old Georgia.
“After 14 years together we have decided that ending our marriage is the best decision for our family,” the 45-year-old stated to People.com.
“We will continue our friendship and work as a team to co-parent our two beautiful girls as they are the most important thing in the world to us. We kindly ask that you respect our privacy during this time as we navigate the next phase of our lives.”
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Gayheart, 46, is seeking spousal support from Dane, and is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their girls.
