Just days before Kenya was set to celebrate her 50th birthday on January 24, Marc publicly announced that their marriage is over for good. Kenya and Marc have had a complicated, on-again, off-again marriage and the former Miss USA first revealed the two had split while filming season 12 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Since then, Kenya has given numerous statements claiming the pair were working through things and were attempting to fix their marriage, but obviously things didn’t work out that way.
“After recently attending mediation, Kenya and I have agreed to end our marriage,” Marc said in the statement he released to The Root. “I will always have great care for her and look forward to amicably continuing to co-parent our daughter Brooklyn with an abundance of love and wisdom.”
If fans recall, the argument that led to the former couple’s original split was caught on camera during a Black Man Lab event Marc was hosting. During the event, viewers watched as Marc told RHOA producers to “get the cameras out of his face” and sources close to the couple said he simply wanted nothing to do with television.
“Marc just doesn’t want to be on TV. It is plain and simple,” an insider told Radar at the time.
In a bizarre twist, according to a new report from Bossip, Marc is allegedly preparing to create his very own reality show centered around Black-owned businesses and love. This seemingly could be what he was referring to in his public statement when he mentioned his plans to highlight important topics and use his restaurant as a “Community Hub” as the show will reportedly be filmed at his Brooklyn, New York restaurant, and feature a celebrity co-star. According to sources, one aspect of the show will involve Marc looking for a new love.
As of now, Kenya has yet to comment on this latest news or their impending divorce, but she recently posted a sweet picture with their daughter, Brooklyn, 2, to celebrate “unconditional love.”
