LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Kenny G is playing the final note on his marriage after 20 years.

Court records show the musician filed for divorce Thursday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.

The 56-year-old married Balynda Helene Benson-Gorelick in April 1992 and the former couple has a 14-year-old son. He is seeking joint custody but does not want to pay his estranged wife spousal support.

Benson-Gorelick filed for separation in January, but the case has not proceeded.

The divorce was first reported Monday by celebrity website TMZ.

Kenny G won a Grammy Award for 1993's "Forever in Love."
