“Airplane!” and ‘The Naked Gun‘ writer/director David Zucker filed for divorce from his wife Danielle … but he says all is still fine and dandy between the two.
David submitted the docs earlier this week but he tells us it was a long time coming … the couple has been separated for nearly 10 years. That’s not all … David says he and Danielle live just a few houses away from each other and routinely have family meals with their two kids.
As for why they’ve finally decided to call it quits — David says they both knew it was time to officially move on — but they’ll still keep a friendly relationship.
According to the divorce docs, David’s asking for physical custody of their teenagers — a boy and a girl — but surely wants to share legal custody with Danielle.
And yes, we’ll stop calling you Shirley.
