It’s been a hot minute since we’ve seen D’Wayne Wiggins of the hit ’90s group Tony! Toni! Toné! and his wife is trying to make sure she’s dealt that same fate. According to TMZ, after 12 years of marriage she’s filing for divorce.

Michelle Lochin-Wiggins is reportedly citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce filing from her 50-year-old husband. She’s also seeking full legal and physical custody of the couple’s teenage boys who are 14 and 17. TMZ reports that she does at least plan to grant D’wayne visitation rights to the children.

So far there’s been no mention of pre-nups or speculation about how assets may be split between the couple, but D’wayne’s likely doing alright in the money department. Aside from the earnings of Tony! Toni! Toné!’s first go ’round, since 1998 D’Wayne’s continued to tour, performing the groups hits with the current lead singer Amar Khalil. And just before the group disbanded in 1996, he established Grass Roots Entertainment  in his West Oakland recording studio, House of Music. In 1995, he developed and signed Destiny’s Child to the entertainment company, and we all know how they turned out. He’s also worked with Keyshia Cole and Alicia Keys, notably on her Billboard hit “Diary.”

Something tells me Michelle is going to want a bit of those earnings. Here’s hoping they can have an amicable split.
