According to the documents, the couple listed June 22 as their date of separation and cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split. It's hard to believe that a marriage could crumble after all those years, but it looks like the couple has made their decision. 

The pair had been together for decades prior to their split.

The couple tied the knot in 1990 but have called it quits after nearly 30 years together. They were most recently spotted together at a Latin Grammys event in November 2018 and she showed him love on Instagram for a nomination for the Video Clips Awards in February. The singer opened up about the split earlier this month. "There's a huge respect between two human beings and I love her. Simply now we have to relate in a different way. The love will always be there," he said in the interview about his relationship with Angela coming to an end.

The actress and the singer have two sons together. They welcomed Revel in 1994 and their second, Redamo, was born in 2001. Since both of their children are adults, there is no need for child support but spousal support is to be decided by the court.
