Gary Oldman is headed for his fourth divorce.

The "Dark Knight" actor's wife, jazz singer Alexandra Edenborough, filed for divorce in Los Angeles on Friday, according to People, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. The pair married on New Year's Eve in 2008.

Edenborough, 36, has reportedly requested that Oldman pay spousal support as well as her attorney fees.

Oldman, 56, was first married to British actress Lesley Manville, with whom he has one son. After a brief marriage to Uma Thurman, the actor married Donya Fiorentino with whom he has two sons.

In a February 2014 interview with The Independent, the British actor mused on how ill-prepared he was for married life as a younger man.

“I’m not proud to say that, though," he told the newspaper. "I’ve had a few goes at it now, so I’ve probably learnt something from the first three ... Practice makes perfect. Isn’t that what they say? I’m not proud that this is my fourth marriage. But this is a good one. Hopefully, my last one."
