Jane Seymour Files For Legal Separation From James Keach

Jane Seymour files for legal separation from James Keach

Jane Seymour filed for legal separation from husband James Keach last week, more than six months after announcing that they were planning to divorce.

Seymour cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and listed the date of separation as “TBD,” according to court documents obtained by E! News.

The couple married on May 15, 1993, and have two children together, 17-year-old twin sons Kristopher Steven and Johnny Stacy. Kristopher is named after Superman star Christopher Reeve, and Johnny is named for Johnny Cash and Keach’s brother, Stacy Jr. This will be the fourth divorce for the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman star, and the third for Keach. Seymour is asking for joint physical and legal custody of the boys, and has asked the court that she not be ordered to pay any spousal support to her soon-to-be ex-husband.

The couple confirmed that they were planning to divorce in April.

“Jane Seymour and James Keach confirm that they are separated and have been for several months,” a representative said at the time. “At this time they are negotiating the terms of their divorce. They will 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.”

Seymour appeared on The View shortly after the divorce announcement and said it was “really devastating,” and that they had separated before the announcement, but kept it quiet. She also said she and Keach remained close despite ending their 20-year marriage.

“We open our hearts to one another. We respect one another,” the former Bond girl said. “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.”
