LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Clint Eastwood’s wife wants out of her 17-year marriage to the actor, and she wants their daughter to stay with her.

Dina Eastwood, a 48-year-old former TV news anchor, cited “irreconcilable differences” with Eastwood, 83, in a divorce petition filed in a Monterey County, California, court Tuesday.

She filed separation papers last month but withdrew them days later.

Us Weekly quoted Dina Eastwood saying that while she’s still close with Eastwood, they broke up more than a year ago and have been living apart “for some time.”

They married on March 31, 1996, and their daughter, Morgan, now 16, was born on December of that year.

Both Dina and Morgan were featured along with Eastwood’s other daughter, Francesca, on the E! reality show “Mrs. Eastwood and Company,” which premiered last year.

He has been married once before, to Maggie Johnson. He’s had eight children total by six women.

The divorce petition asks the court to award her spousal support and physical custody of Morgan, although she is offering to share legal custody.
