Jane Seymour files for legal separation from James Keach
Jane Seymour and husband James Keach have made their split official: The former “Medicine Woman” has filed for legal separation.
The British actress filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court last week to break from her actor-director husband of more than 20 years, TMZ reported.
The reason? The ever-popular “irreconcilable differences.”
Seymour, 52, and Keach, 65, married on May 15, 1993, and have have twin boys — Kristopher and John, 17 — of whom Seymour is pursuing joint legal and physical custody, E! News reported. Keach was her fourth husband, and Seymour was his third wife, the site said.
The former Bond girl is requesting that the court not order her to pay spousal support, the sites said.
Last April, Seymour and Keach announced that they were “separated and have been for several months.” They said that they were “negotiating the terms of their divorce” and planned to “continue their relationship as devoted parents to their children, as business associates and partners, and in their joint dedication to preserving and furthering the charitable endeavors that they’ve worked on throughout their marriage.”
However, Seymour left the date of separation as “TBD,” according to the court documents.
A few days later, she addressed the breakup on “The View.”
“Obviously, it’s really devastating,” she said. “It did happen a while ago. It was sort of kept quiet.
“We open our hearts to one another. We respect one another. We’ve been together 22 years, and we will be together the rest of our lives raising our children and doing things like the Open Hearts Foundation.”
