Say it ain't so! PEOPLE is reporting that actress Tisha Campbell-Martin has filed for divorce from her husband of more than 20 years, actor Duane Martin.
Campbell-Martin is infamous for playing Gina on hit comedy show "Martin," which is currently planning a reboot. After being on-air for five seasons, "Martin" stopped production when Martin Lawrence and Campbell-Martin went through serious off-camera conflicts. Now that the program is making a return, many longtime fans of it are wondering how it's going to premiere without the beloved character of Tommy Strawn. The actor who portrayed him, Tommy Ford, passed away in October 2016.
We were so happy to hear that show announcement. But now, we're learning that Campbell-Martin is dealing with some sad, real-life news. In a statement to PEOPLE, the actress said, “After 27 years of being together and two amazing children, it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce.” She continued, “It’s an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family.”
The now-estranged married couple has two sons, 8-year-old Ezekiel and 16-year-old Xen.
