in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The Gibsons have seven children, but only one under 18. Robyn Gibson has requested spousal support and joint custody of their son who turns 10 on Tuesday.

Robyn Gibson is seeking jewelry and earnings and assets she accrued after the couple separated, and a share of the money and assets Gibson, 53, has earned during nearly three largely successful decades in Hollywood.

The couple released a joint statement Monday, seeking privacy.

“Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so,” the statement read.
