Clint Eastwood's wife, Dina Eastwood, filed for legal separation on Monday, Sept. 10, court records show.

The 48-year-old former reporter and "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" star filed the papers in Monterey County Superior Court, according to The Monterey County Herald. Dina is seeking spousal support and physical custody of the couple's 16-year-old daughter Morgan.

The filing confirms earlier reports that the couple had been living separately.

The two wed in March 1996. This was the second marriage for Clint, who was previously married to Maggie Johnson from 1953 to 1984. The 83-year-old award-winning actor and director has seven other children from previous relationships.

Dina, 48, and Morgan appeared together on the E! reality series "Mrs. Eastwood & Company." The show also featured Clint's daughter Francesca, whose mother is actress Frances Fisher. The series ran for one season in 2012.

Dina previously worked as a news anchor at local television stations in Arizona and California and met Clint while interviewing him in 1993.
