Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. and Claudine De Niro have been seen together and are rumored to be hooking up.
The buzz in Hollywood is that actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and Claudine De Niro are hooking up.
The two have been seen together and looking very cozy indeed. Claudine is none other than the estranged daughter-in-law of Gooding's costar in "Men of Honor," acclaimed actor, Robert De Niro.
“I wouldn’t say they are dating, but they are hooking up.”
Gooding and Claudine were seen hanging out during Art Basel Miami and partying at the Versace Mansion.
Claudine is the estranged wife of Raphael De Niro, with whom she shares three children.
Gooding and Sara met in high school and dated for 7 years before marrying in 1994.
Claudine and Raphael stopped living together in 2015, after 7 years of marriage. The couple filed for divorce in 2016, and Raphael has definitely moved on, having announced his engagement to fashion stylist Hannah Carnes.
Gooding, who just completed a critically-acclaimed 5-week run in the hit musical “Chicago” as Billy Flynn, has also filed for divorce from his wife of 20 years, Sara Kapfer.
Gooding's divorce proceedings come as a surprise since the actor had recently spoken about his unconventional marriage on "The Steve Harvey Show":
"Officially I'm still married, it's just you know how some marriages go. Sometimes you take a break or two. All I'm saying is my life is what it is right now. I took her to see a movie the other day. We've got kids, man, we've got to keep this together."
Gooding and Sara met in high school and dated for 7 years before marrying in 1994. The couple shares 3 children, Spencer, Mason, and Piper.
In August of 2014 filed for legal separation from her husband, and in 2018, Gooding filed for divorce.
Gooding, 49, is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, Piper, 10. The actor is proposing he pay spousal support but that his earning after the separation are indivisible, and his.
