Hollywood stars David Duchovny and Tea Leoni are formally ending their 17-year marriage in a divorce citing “irretrievable breakdown of relationship” as the cause, according to a report by Mail Online on Saturday, August 9.

The two have reportedly agreed to joint legal custody of their 15-year-old daughter, Madelaine West, and 12-year-old son, Kyd Miller. Leoni will take primary physical custody of the children, with Duchovny paying for monthly spousal support and child support at $40,000 and $8,333 respectively. The actor will also reportedly be responsible for other, unspecified expenses such as summer camp, private school, and college.

During their marriage, the couple separated twice, once in 2008 and again in 2011.
