The 51-year-old, whose legal name is Philip John Clapp, cited “irreconcilable differences” in his filing Tuesday in Los Angeles with his wife Naomi Nelson, a documentary filmmaker.
He is seeking joint custody of their 12-year-old son, Rocko, and their 10-year-old daughter, Arlo.
The couple married in September 2010 and have been separated since September 24, their wedding anniversary, according to the documents.
