After 27 years of being together and 2 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." @DUANEMARTIN_ said to me Best this morn “we are family FOREVER”

The actress/singer says “it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce.” Because of this, she wants to be left alone and asks the same privacy to be given to her children and family. Tisha is filing for spousal support and legal custody of the boys.
Duane hasn’t made any comments yet on his behalf yet, while his soon-to-be ex-wife, Tisha Campbell-Martin has reunited with the Martin crew in discussions about a reunion. How many of you knew she released a new single, “I Don’t Wanna Be Alone”? I have to be honest and say I did not. Nevertheless, it’s new music with the rapper, Rich the Kid.
Tisha’s dancing again and even got a new hairdo. Yep, she shaved one side of her head. Okay, now we know there’s something serious going on. The news of the divorce comes right after the stress and strain of going through a financial crunch.
Yes, the couple did file for bankruptcy a few years back but are doing well now Tisha says. When they filed, it was during the market crash and after they had taken out some loans, apparently for some real estate deals. They were $15 mil in debt. Oh yeah… that’s a lot for someone like you and me.
They filed simply because they couldn’t come to terms with the banks. She told her Twitter fans while they did file for bankruptcy, it was just a way to regroup and to take charge of their financial future. They don’t owe anyone right now. Can you say “debt free?” Yay!
Well, she also told her fans back in 2016 on the OWN television talk show It’s Not You, It’s Men the way she and Duane kept it fresh was revisiting their courting days. “I just told my husband, ‘You love me, I love you. That’s a given… I want you to like me’” she added.
“We’re in a whole new sexy phase where it’s like, ‘I want to be your girlfriend.’ I’m his girlfriend right now and he likes me.”
But on the other hand, Tisha Campbell-Martin also talked about the stage in relationships “where a lot of couples get in trouble -The ‘all right, love ya’ phase. It’s like you’re doing your thing, I’m doing my thing — ‘All right, love ya,’” she said at the time.
Nevertheless, the couple is still friends. Actually, they “will remain a family even after their split.” That’s great news especially since they have sons. Still, I’m some disappointed and shocked. I mean, this really breaks my heart! How do you feel about the couple divorcing?
