Gooding is asking for legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Piper. The couple also shares two sons, Spencer and Mason, who are no longer minors.

According to the court docs, the People v. O.J. Simpson star is willing to pay Kapfer spousal support but wants all of his earnings since the pair separated to remain his own.
