We don’t know much about Wendy Raquel Robinson‘s marriage, but according to documents obtained by TMZ, her estranged husband Marco Perkins has filed for divorce and the details aren’t pretty.

Perkins alleges the former The Game actress left him destitute after he had a stroke back in 2015. He says, “he enjoyed a lavish lifestyle while married to Wendy, and is asking a judge to make her cough up at least $10,000 a month so he can maintain that life — adding that she can afford it, since he believes her monthly income is in the ballpark of $200K month.”

In an interview with Essence in 2012, she revealed how the two met and the details of the proposal.

“I am a huge Lakers fan. It was the finals and there was a little soiree at my house. A friend of mine who doesn’t drive asked if it was okay to bring a friend over because he was his ride. I said sure and they came over. The guys were all talking and the ladies were all talking and, you know, he’s holding court, and I’m like, who’s this guy? We just started talking and the rest was history. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. It was really just a connection at first sight and we were both at the right places in our lives and it just happened.

We had been dating for about two years and things were going really, really great. I was actually doing a theater show in North Carolina and he was going to go with me to see a play I was doing. It was my birthday and we’re packing up and he goes, “I want you to see this video I made.” I was like, “A video?” So we’re watching and he’s just singing happy birthday on the video. I’m thinking, oh how cute, and then at the end of the video he goes, “By the way, will you marry me?” We started running around the house like little eight-year-olds. He had the ring and everything. It was really a 3D proposal. That was really special. Back then, this was all on VHS. It was so sweet.”

If granted, Robinson will join the long list of women including, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige and Melanie Brown, whose former husbands are after their fortunes.
