“Martin and Shamicka Lawrence have decided to divorce,” a rep for the Big Momma’s House star, 47, told PEOPLE. “The couple has made the joint decision to part ways.”
Interestingly the couple had been together for 15 years before getting married in 2010 at their home in Beverly Hills.
“Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together,” the couple said in a joint statement by a Martin Lawrence rep.
Lawrence, who also appeared in the “Bad Boys” films, just finished a nationwide sold-out comedy tour and recently shot a comedy pilot for CBS.
Lawrence divorced his first wife, former Miss Virginia USA, Patricia Southall, 1997 … after two years of marriage.
