Dennis Quaid and wife Kimberly Buffington-Quaid have called it quits once again, Celebuzz has learned.

“Kimberly and Dennis Quaid have decided to legally separate after eight years of marriage. They ask that their privacy and the privacy of their family be respected during this difficult time,” a rep for the actor told us in an official statement.

The reason for the split?

Buffington-Quaid had filed for divorce in March, saying in papers that things between she and her husband had “become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”

After putting off their divorce in late April to work on their marriage, she filed for legal separation once again this week.

In papers obtained by TMZ, Bluffington-Quaid states the Vegas actor, 58, should get visitation with their 4-year-old twins.

This will be the second divorce for Quaid, who was married to Meg Ryan from 1991 to 2001. The former couple have one child together: Jack, 20.
