HipHollywood has learned exclusively that Anthony Anderson didn’t know about his estranged wife Alvina Stewart’s attempt to dismiss their divorce petition.
A source tells us that the black-ish star was caught off guard and “had no idea” that Stewart was moving in a different direction. The insider did, however, confirm that the father of two is open to working things out.
News of Stewart’s new divorce move surfaced early Wednesday morning, almost two years after initially calling it quits. Alvina filed documents back in September 2015 after 16 years of marriage — a move that came as a shock to many in Hollywood.
Alvina, who married her college sweetheart in 1999, cited “irreconcilable differences” and asked for “joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their then 15-year-old son Nathan.”
The estranged pair share two children together.
