Martin Lawrence - Martin Lawrence To Divorce From Wife Shamicka

In sad news, Martin Lawrence and his wife Shamicka Lawrence have split. The pair had been together for some 15 years, yet only got married in 2010. Evidently that seems to have been a bad choice, and a rep confirmed to E! News that the couple had made the joint decision to part ways.
It's US comic actor Lawrence's second marriage. After an engagement in 1993 to Lark Voorhies that fell through, he went on to get hitched with Patricia Southall, a former Miss Virginia, in 1995 only for that marriage to fall apart two years later. It was during this time that Lawrence displayed erratic behaviour including reportedly brandishing a pistol in public in Los Angeles and being hospitalised several times.
However with Shamicka he's gradually been a changed man, the pair have two daughters together -Amara and Lyana - and after thirteen years of being together they tied the knot at Lawrence's Beverly Hills home in 2010 with Shanice serenading the couple with a rendition Minnie Riperton's 'Lovin' You.' Ultimately though it would seem that love has failed to last, and the pair will now file for divorce. It's not like Lawrence has much to keep himself occupied either, with 'Back To Africa' the only film he's scheduled to appear in this year.
