Hollywood ace comedian Martin Lawrence may not be in a laughing mood these days.
After 17 years together, the 47-year-old funnyman recently split from his wife, Shamicka, 37. According to reports, the decision to end their marriage is mutual, and the former couple will continue to raise their two daughters, Amara, 9, and Iyana, 11, together.
Internet reports indicate the former couple married in 2010 after being together for 15 years. Before his relationship with Shamicka, Martin was previously married to Patricia Southall, a former Miss Virginia USA winner. He has a teenage daughter, Jasmine Page, from that marriage.
Separation in Hollywood is certainly nothing new. We wish both Martin and his former wife all the best on their decision to separate.
