Forest Whitaker and his wife are calling it quits after more than two decades of marriage.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the "Black Panther" star filed documents on Thursday to end his marriage with Keisha Nash.

He cites irreconcilable differences for the split and does not want to pay spousal support.

Whitaker also wants both sides to be responsible for their own legal fees.

The two met on the set of "Blown Away" in 1994 and began a relationship after playing each other's on-screen love interests.

They married two years later, in 1996, during a ceremony in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The couple shares two daughters together, Sonnet and True. They each also have a child from previous relationships.

The cause of the split is currently unclear.
