After more than 20 years of marriage Tisha Campbell-Martin and Duane Martin are calling it quits. The beloved Martin actress released a statement on social media Thursday announcing that she and Duane, 52, are ending their union.
“After 27 years of being together and two amazing children, it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce,” the 49-year-old wrote. “It’s an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family.”

During their nearly three-decade-long relationship, the couple welcomed two children, 16-year-old Xen and 8-year-old Ezekiel.
Campbell-Martin recently made headlines when she confirmed to HipHollywood exclusively that a Martin reboot was in the works. The sitcom went off the air in 1997 amid serious riffs between Martin Lawrence and Campbell-Martin, but apparently the two have patched things up.
The mother of two has also been busy working. She has a guest appearance on “Empire”, just starred in The Simone Biles Story on Lifetime, and is working on new music.
