Bad Boys’ actor Martin Lawrence has filed for divorce from his wife Shamicka, seeking custody of his two daughters. He and his wife are asking that their assets are to be divided under the terms of a prenuptial agreement.
The Big Momma’s House star cites the usual “irreconcilable differences” in his petition filed April 25, 2012, in Los Angeles Superior Court. Lawrence who is now forty seven years old and Shamika had just been married for less than two years but they knew each other for fifteen years.
The couple together have two daughters age nine and eleven. The date of separation was listed as April 24, the day before the pair announced their split.
“Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together,” they said in a joint statement released by his rep.
