In 2017, Cuba Gooding Jr. filed for a divorce with estranged wife Sara Kapfer, ending 22 years of blissful marriage. After witnessing a fairytale love story, fans were left distraught by the news.
The couple first showed signs of marital troubles in 2014 when Kapfer filed for separation because of personal differences. However, the couple tried to work on their on and off relationship for the next few years but in the end, they couldn’t make up their difference.
The couple separated amicably with a joint custody of Piper. They also share two adult kids, Manson and Spencer. Cuba and Sara started dating a long time ago and got married in 1994. In 2018, Cuba sparked headlines after he was spotted with the estranged daughter-in-law of Robert De Niro in Miami, Florida. Claudine De Niro separated from Raphael, the star’s son in 2016.
After Claudine De Niro and Cuba were seen getting close to each other at numerous events, many people believe that the two were dating. However, Cuba, who has remained single since his separation with his wife, has not made an official statement about his alleged relationship. Only time will tell whether this fling between them could turn into something serious.
