“Black AF” show creator Kenya Barris is giving his marriage another chance.
According to The Blast, Barris filed a request for dismissal of his divorce on May 15. The filing means he is asking the court to throw out his petition, which will keep him legally married. Kenya originally filed for divorce from his real-life wife, Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris, in August 2019 following 20 years of marriage.
The couple have 4 young children; Lola, 13, Beau, 11, Kass, 9 and Bronx, 3. They have two other children who are over the age of 18.
Earlier this month, Kenya spoke to T.I. on his ExpediTIously podcast about the divorce. He said, “I’m going through a divorce right now. Who knows what’s going to happen with that.”
The mogul added, “It is part of life. When I was growing up, we didn’t have—I never saw Cliff and Clair [Huxtable] argue. If you look at sitcoms and our stories, we’re supposed to be okay. But 52 percent of marriages don’t work. It is the toughest thing I’ve ever been through in my life.”
On Mother’s Day, just a few days before filing his petition to withdraw the divorce, Kenya posted a sweet message on Instagram about his estranged wife.
Rainbow has inspired Kenya’s work throughout the years he’s said, with the TV wives in “Black-Ish” and “Black AF” being based on her real life. Recently, Barris defended his decision to use his wife and children as inspiration for “BlackAF” after critics and fans dragged the show .
If he decides to do a “Black AF” spin-off he can call it “Reconciled AF”.
