Martin Lawrence divorcing wife Shamicka after two years of marriage

martin-lawrence-shamicka-lawrence-gi.jpgHere's some more sad celebrity split news coming out of Hollywood: Actor and comedian Martin Lawrence announced that he and wife Shamicka are divorcing after two years of marriage, but the couple were together for way longer than that -- almost two decades, in fact.

According to E! Online, Lawrence and his wife had dated for 15 years and had two children before finally getting married in 2010 during a private ceremony at their home. A rep for the couple says in a statement they have made "the joint decision to part ways. Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together."

Lawrence has another daughter with ex-wife Patricia, who is now married to Emmitt Smith.

Nice to know the split seems amicable. Best wishes to the couple during their tough time.
