Ryan Phillippe Asks for Joint Custody

Despite the fact that Reese Witherspoon is worth considerably more than he is, and the couple did not sign a pre-nup, Ryan Phillippe will not be seeking alimony from his soon-to-be ex-wife; he is asking only for joint custody of their two children, Ava, 7, and Deacon, 3. Phillippe asks that visitation rights be "equally distributed," and is not blocking Reese from seeking spousal support from him.

The couple separated in late October, after Reese caught Ryan having an affair with Australian actress Abbie Cornish. They filed for divorce in November. Reese has since been linked to co-star Jake Gyllenhaal.
