After almost a quarter-century of marriage, one of Black Hollywood’s most adored couples is calling it quits.
The couple was married for almost a quarter of a century. The announcement was made by Campbell’s representative on Thursday (February 22). Campbell is a television and film actress who is best known for co-starring on ‘Martin,’ a 1990s era comedy sitcom produced by and starred in by the legendary Martin Lawrence.
Martin is best known for his appearance in the cult classic motion picture ‘Above the Rim,’ which also stars the late Tupac Shakur, the late Bernie Mac, and Leon Robinson. Campbell exclusively released a statement to People Magazine, which partially reads as follows:
“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.” (People Magazine)
Martin and Campbell have an eight-year-old child and a 16-year-old child between each other. Let’s hope for the best for these two as they continue to create a stable environment separately for their children’s sake.
