As much as I love me some Sheneneh, Ole man Otis, Mama Payne (his momma) and Jerome, Martin Lawrence‘s famous characters that he played on his hit comedy show, Martin, this ain’t nothing to laugh about…
Martin Lawrence (47 year old comedian and actor) and his long time life partner Shamicka Gibbs have decided to call it quits after being together for 17 years. They have been married for 2 years and were together prior for 15 years. Now that’s alot of mileage though for them to be quitting so soon…..*sigh*….Another Hollywood couple bites the dust!
They have two daughters Iyana (11) and Amara (9). They tied the knot back in 2010 at their Beverley Hills home in California. The event was attended by fellow Hollywood heavy weights such as Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington etc *Where Mama Payne in all of this here mess….*
In a joint statement made to People magazine the couple said:
“Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together”.
This makes it Martin’s 2nd divorce. He divorced Patricia Southall the former Miss Virginia U.S.A, who is now married to Emmitt Smith of NFL. Martin and Patricia have a daughter, Jasmine who is 16 years old.
On the career front though Martin Lawrence is doing very well as he just wrapped up a national stand-up tour and his new sitcom may hit screens soon, as CBS has ordered it*looking forward to a good laugh*
