Jim Belushi has filed for divorce from his wife Jennifer Sloan after more than 23 years of marriage.

The actor, 67, filed the marriage dissolution documents in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.

A representative for Belushi did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. Sloan could not be reached for comment.

The actor listed the couple's date of separation as Dec. 1, 2020. Belushi cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, according to court documents.

The duo has both a prenup and postnup, Belushi's filing claims.

This marks the second time in just over three years that the couple has initiated divorce proceedings. TMZ was the first to report news of the most recent divorce filing.

Sloan previously filed for divorce on March 5, 2018 — the 36-year anniversary of Belushi's older brother John Belushi's death — according to court documents obtained by The Blast (The Saturday Night Live comic died from a drug overdose on March 5, 1982).

However, just over a year later in May 2019, Belushi requested that the divorce be dismissed. The dismissal came days before the couple celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary.

"He kissed me on the forehead like I was his sister," Sloan told PEOPLE in 2003 of Belushi, who starred on the hit ABC series According to Jim from 2001-2009. "A couple weeks later he asked me to go rollerblading, and I liked him that day. He was real."

The pair shares two children together. Belushi also has a son from his first marriage to Sandra Davenport from 1980-88. He was married to his second wife, Marjorie Bransfield, from 1990-92.
