People say marriage is tough, and these couples — or at least one partner in the relationship — have made the likely even tougher decision to split. Less than six months into 2023, four couples familiar to The Shade Room’s audience have filed for divorce.
Some celebrities are still reflecting on divorces filed last year and even the year before. Meagan Good recently told Essence that the decision to divorce was something she never “would have chosen,” adding that she even questioned celibacy afterward. Meagan and DeVon Franklin split in 2021 after he filed for divorce in December. The divorce was reportedly finalized days before their 10-year wedding anniversary.
Meanwhile, Da’Naia Jackson, former wife of popular relationship coach Derrick Jaxn, recently said “surrendering to the Lord” is her secret through the split. In December 2022, Derrick announced their joint decision to split less than two years after he publicly confessed to infidelity.
