American actress Tisha Michelle Campbell was born on October 13, 1968. She made her acting debut in the 1986 rock musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors but was reared in Newark, New Jersey. She then starred in the short-lived NBC musical comedy-drama Rags to Riches (1987–1988).
On Wednesday, more than two years after she initially filed for divorce, “Martin” actress Tisha Campbell and Duane Martin consummated their separation.
“I had two AMAZING kids from a marriage that lasted more than 20 years. Beyond that, I’m happier than I’ve ever been, Campbell said in a statement to Page Six on Friday.
The couple will split joint legal and physical custody of Ezekiel, who will spend alternating weeks with his parents, according to divorce documents acquired by Page Six. Ezekiel is 11 years old and has a brother named Xen who is 19 years old.
Additionally, according to the documents, neither Campbell, 52, nor Martin, 55, will be receiving child or spousal support from the other.
Irreconcilable issues were given as the basis for the break, and the official date of separation was given as December 17, 2017. In 1996, they got married.
Campbell Informed The Split in February 2018.
It pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce after 27 years of marriage and two wonderful children, she said in a statement. I kindly request privacy for myself, our children, and the rest of our family at this difficult time.
After 27 years of being together and 2 amazing children, it pains me to announce that I've filed for divorce. It's an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family." @DUANEMARTIN_ said to me Best this morn “we are family FOREVER”

Campbell received a restraining order against Martin in January 2019, during the pending divorce, after alleging that he had regularly mistreated her.
I can’t continue to live in fear of reprisals, she said. The need to file criminal charges stemming from his actions outweighs the shame of exposing his crimes against me in this report.
But a month later, in an effort to co-parent their sons, she asked that the restraining order be lifted.
Throughout her career, Campbell has been in sitcoms like My Wife & Kids and Dr. Ken, but she is best recognized for her part as Gina in the smash hit Martin from the 1990s. There have recently been reports that the series is returning.
Martin Lawrence, Trichina Arnold, and Campbell, among other cast members, spoke with TMZ earlier this month and hinted that a reunion might be in the works.
