Carl Payne’s Wife Files For Divorce After 22 Years Of Marriage
Another celebrity couple is throwing in the towel…
According to TMZ, Melika Payne, wife of “Martin” actor Carl Payne Jr., filed for divorce with the L.A. County Superior Court last month. It’s unclear what ruined the couple’s 22-year marriage, but Melika cites “irreconcilable differences” in her filing.
Melika’s decision probably doesn’t come as a huge surprise to her famous husband, as the couple has been legally separated since 2012. She is requesting sole physical custody and joint legal custody of their son. Melika is also requesting spousal support from her actor husband.
The estranged couple tied to knot back in 1992. They have been legally married for twenty-two years, but legally separated for two of those years.
