Dina Eastwood, a 48-year-old journalist, filed papers on Tuesday in Monterey County, south of San Francisco, where the “Dirty Harry” star has long lived.
She is seeking physical custody of their 16-year-old daughter Morgan, giving the 83-year-old movie legend child visitation rights, according to the divorce petition, a copy of which was sent to AFP.
She also wants spousal support and for the actor-director Eastwood to pay legal fees.
Reports surfaced in August that Dina Eastwood wanted to file for divorce, but there was no confirmation at the time, nor legal papers filed.
People magazine reported that she filed papers for legal separation on Oct. 7, but then withdrew them, before filing full divorce papers this week.
“This is really sad,” a source told the celebrity bible when confirming the split last month, adding: “They were great partners for many years.”
The magazine said that the veteran star is dating Erica Fisher, who has been living in his Los Angeles-area home and has been seen driving his Mercedes Benz around town.
Media reports have suggested that Dina Eastwood is dating Erica Fisher's ex-husband Scott Fisher.
