Acclaimed film composer Hans Zimmer has filed for divorce from his wife Suzanne Zimmer, according to multiple reports.

The Oscar winner filed for dissolution of marriage at the Los Angeles County Courthouse on April 3, according to court records obtained by TMZ and The Blast. A rep for Hans did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Hans was previously married to model Vicki Carolin before the two divorced in 1992. The exes share an adult daughter, Zoe, according to reports.

The German-born songster has three additional children with Suzanne.

Hans is most notably known for his work on the original 1994 film The Lion King, for which he won the Academy Award for best original score.
