According to TMZ, Campbell-Martin said in a statement, “After 27 years of being together and two amazing children, it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce. It’s an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family.”
The pair married in 1996 and have two children, Xen and Ezekiel.
Both have been in the news recently with the announcement of the long-awaited Martin reboot (Tisha confirmed her involvement despite filing a lawsuit against Martin Lawrence for sexual harassment in 1997). Earlier this week it was announced that Duane would be bringing the role of one of our favorite Bad Boys to life in the Gabrielle Union led television series.
While we love the idea of them together, if they’re happier apart, we have no choice but to respect it.
