Parents’ Separated in 2014
Spencer’s father Cuba Gooding Jr. was very private about his marriage with Sara but shared a piece every now and then. However, he is a star, and a few personal matters are bound to peek out. Likewise was with the case of their high school romance and very exposed legal separation.
The former couple met during their high school years as Cuba Gooding Jr.’s ex-wife, Sara was only 17, and he was 21. Spencer’s parents dated several years and tied knots on 13 March 1994. The former love birds were married for more than two decades but unfortunately parted ways in 2014 after Sara filed for legal separation.
The news of the Hollywood couple was a shocker because even when Gooding Jr.’s fans speculated him to marry some hotshot, he put his high school lover in the spotlight as if their love was eternal. Well, it’s human nature to fall in and out of love, and Cuba managed to love his ex-wife in every transitional form he saw, a highschooler, a college student, a newlywed, and a mother.
But time played its role, and hence Spencer Gooding’s father filed for divorce in 2017. Gooding Jr. was more than ready to show Sara spousal support. But, here’s the catch. The O.J Simpson star wanted to claim his earnings as ‘his and his only’ since the day the couple legally parted ways.
As of now, the former duo, Cuba, and Sara have parted ways; they are still connected by their children. Let’s hope Spencer’s parents form a friendship and keep the atmosphere calm around their family.
And as for Spencer Gooding’s girlfriend, he also seems to be private about his love life. His social media feeds don’t show anything about his love life and relationships.
