TMZ said Whitaker requested the court in Los Angeles terminate spousal support.

The former couple met on the set of the 1994 film Blown Away and married in Jamaica two years later.

Whitaker, 57, and his estranged wife, 46, have two daughters together -- Sonnet, 22, and True, 20.

Earlier this week, Whitaker posted a holiday message on his Twitter account.

"Christmas is a celebration of solidarity - a time of the year when we are reminded that the bonds our families, friends, fellow citizens and beyond are based on sharing and bringing joy. #MerryChirstmas to you all!" he tweeted Tuesday.

He has not publicly commented on the breakup.
