Casey - who won the Best Actor Oscar earlier this year for Manchester by the Sea - started dating Summer in 1999 and they married in 2006.

The actor's brother Ben Affleck is also in the midst of a divorce after separating from Jennifer Garner in 2015.

Casey came under fire for his Academy Award win because he has been sued by two women for sexual harassment stemming from his time working on the film I'm Still Here.

He is rumoured to have settled the two cases for millions of dollars.
