We regret to report that according to TMZ, a host of other Atlanta based sites and official court documents, Big Boi’s wife, Sherlita Patton is filing for divorce.

After 11 years of marriage and 20 years of being together, Patton filed documents yesterday claiming that she and Big Boi’s 11 year marriage is “irretrievably broken.”

Big Boi and Sherlita were married in 2002 and have two children together. An 18 year old and a 12 year old. Sherlita is seeking sole custody of the younger child.

In addition to child support, Patton wants spousal support, splitting of the marital assets and attorney’s fees.

It’s always sad to report the potential end of a marriage; but I feel more attached to this one because Big Boi always seemed so committed to his wife. When Big Boi and his wife were robbed back in 2010, Big Boi made comments of how he felt like less of man because he couldn’t protect her in that instance, he’s been interviewed saying their union, though not perfect, is solid.  But perhaps we shouldn’t be all that surprised. Big Boi alluded that there was trouble in paradise with his song featuring Kid Cudi, “She Hates Me.”

I mean it started with the rose petal, ended with the stem
By the car, while I was thinking “Damn here we go again”
We used to hold hands and had such a deep convo
Make a few plans like you wanna go where I’mma go?
Well let’s leave pronto and thats what we did
Then we yelled out geronimo and jumped off that bridge
Had a couple kids, you can move where I live
I know old A$$ niggas that’s scared to do what I did
The shoe still fits but I’m wearing out the sole
Sometimes I really feel as if I’m burning out my soul

And then

Forgive me if I raise my voice I won’t raise a hand
But one thing I will do baby is raise my little man.

Sad indeed. Nothing’s quite final yet, so I’m still going to hold out hope that these two can work it out.  We’ll see what happens.

    why is this bad news? people divorce all of the time and are better for it. happily ever after can mean finding peace apart from each other. sometimes things just fall apart. thats life.

  • I Don’t Like Them Dark Butts

    that’s why you don’t marry these hoes. they swear they’re “independent,” but they’re always looking for spousal support.

    • PleaseDOBetter

      I feel you on the “independent” piece, but I guess I am a little lost on the hoe part. It’s not like they just met, they have been together for 20 years.

      • I Don’t Like Them Dark Butts

        it’s not her money, tho..

        • PleaseDOBetter

          For a relationship of 20 years and two kids (one of which is a minor), a court of law may beg to differ with you on that. Also, how do YOU know that she didn’t help make him any of that money?

    Why is it sad? It’s their relationship so they know what they’ve been going through. I think it’s better to get divorced than to fake the funk and keep hurting.

  • bluekissess

    Divorce is the new black.

  • NeaJ

    Wow! Never saw this one coming.

  • PleaseDOBetter

    Maybe there is trouble in paradise, however (at least to my knowledge) they have been respectful to each other and kept their business as should be…their business.

    • IMJSANYUmad

      duh

      • PleaseDOBetter
