Anthony Anderson and Wife Split After 22 Years
It’s heartbreaking when a couple breaks up, especially after spending so much time together. Anthony Anderson, who rejoined Law & Order for its relaunch, and Alvina Anderson are allegedly divorcing after 22 years. Alvina filed for divorce last Monday, five years after they reconciled.
Alvina Anderson cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for her 1999 divorce from her high school sweetheart. She’s requesting Anthony Anderson for spousal support and attorney fees. She also wants property acquired during their marriage and other things shared.
All gifts and inheritance, all assets, earnings, accumulations, and debts acquired by [Alvina] prior to the date of marriage and after the date of separation, the exact nature and extent of which are unknown.
Alvina Anderson has divorced the black-ish celebrity twice. She requested spousal support in 2015, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple reconnected in January 2017 and withdrew the divorce papers. Nathan, 22, and Kyra, 26, are Anthony Anderson’s children.
Alvina Anderson was married to Anthony in several of his earlier appearances, including some you may have forgotten. His brief but funny presence in 2004’s Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle is memorable, and who could forget Big Momma’s House’s security guard Terry Nolan?
The actor stars in the eighth and final season of the ABC sitcom black-ish. He rejoined Law & Order for Season 21 after an 11-year sabbatical. After eight seasons as Dre Johnson on black-ish, Anderson said he wanted to “have a little fun in the dramatic realm for a little time”
This longtime couple’s divorce saddens us. The former couple and their grown children can begin mending if the proceedings go smoothly.
Anthony Anderson may be seen on black-ish (ABC, 9:30 p.m. ET Tuesdays) and Law & Order (returning April 7). NBC’s criminal drama airs at 8 p.m. Check our 2022 TV schedule for new and returning shows.
Anthony Anderson Is Selling His L.A. Home and Helping His Ex-Wife.
Anthony Anderson says many goodbyes this year. After leaving Law & Order and ending black-ish after eight seasons, he and his wife of 22 years divorced. While divorce processes often turn acrimonious as former partners debate who gets what and where to live, the actor and Alvina Anderson seem to be moving steadily along by selling their multimillion-dollar property and helping his ex find her own place.
Anthony and Alvina Anderson married in 1999 and have two grown children, Nathan, 22, and Kyra, 26. When Alvina filed for divorce, she asked for property division and spousal support, and it appears the actor agreed. The Andersons have agreed to sell their 3,342-square-foot Los Angeles home on June 30, court documents show.
The net proceeds of the sale of the (Residence), defined as the sale price less payoff of the Albers Street Residence mortgage, and the payment of commissions, fees, and expenses of the listing agents and escrow company, shall be distributed one-half to each party,
The 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom mansion might be worth up to $2.3 million, giving each party cash to start over. Anthony Anderson has agreed to co-sign his ex-12-month wife’s lease while discussions continue. The actor’s current income will determine spousal support.
Two of Anthony Anderson’s primary employment suddenly ended, thus his income may vary. As black-series ish’s finale aired on April 19, he said “goodbye-ish” to Dre Johnson. (Hulu has all eight seasons.) Anderson’s other resignation was more shocking than Season 8’s.
After just one season of Law & Order’s reboot, the actor confirmed he wouldn’t return for Season 22. He originally signed on for Season 21 to aid with the relaunch. In the cliffhanger-free season finale, neither Anthony Anderson nor Detective Frank Cosgrove (Jeffrey Donovan) retired.

It’s uncertain why the actor (probably) decided against returning to the bifurcated drama or if his personal life played a role. Alvina Anderson divorced in 2015, alleging irreconcilable differences. The couple reconnected in January 2017 and withdrew the divorce papers.
