Tisha Campbell-Martin Files For Divorce From Husband of 21 Years
Wow, it seems like no Hollywood relationship is safe from divorce, even after 21 years of marriage.
Actress and singer Tisha Campbell-Martin, 49, has filed for divorce from husband, actor Duane Martin, 52 confirmed by PEOPLE. The couple shares a total of 27 years together, and 21 years of marriage.
“After 27 years of being together and two amazing children, it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce,” Tisha, 49, said in the statement.
The pair had been repeatedly featured on just about everyone’s list of Black Love couples who have stood the test of time. While there have been many rumors of husband Duane Martin’s sexuality and possible infidelity, the couple has never responded and seem to have always pushed forward.
“It’s an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family,” she shared.
Over the course of their marriage, the pair, who wed in 1996, had two children: sons Ezekiel, 8, and Xen, 16.
Duane Martin and Tisha both starred in Kevin Harts scripted reality series, Real Husbands of Hollywood for the past couple of seasons. Tisha, of course, starred on Martin Lawrence’s hit 90’s show, ‘Martin’ for five seasons before the sitcom went off the air in 1997 due to serious riffs between Martin Lawrence and Campbell-Martin.
But all of this seems a little bit ironic now, since Tisha and Martin are back friends again. In October 2016, they reunited with the rest of their castmates to celebrate the life of their late costar and friend
