A seemingly rock-solid Hollywood marriage is coming to an end.

American Idol alum Randy Jackson and his wife, Erika Jackson, are going their separate ways after 19 years together, TMZ reports. Erika filed for divorce on Friday citing irreconcilable differences. 

In the documents, Erika is seeking spousal support and payment for legal fees. In addition, she is asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their son Jordan, 17, with "reasonable visitation" for Randy. The couple also have a daughter, Zoe, who is 19. The date of separation is listed as September 11, 2014.

The soon-to-be former Mrs. Jackson has also requested to go back to her maiden name, Erika Riker.

The news comes weeks after it was revealed the Grammy winning producer sold his home in Tarzana, California, for $1.9 million.
