Comedian/actor Martin Lawrence has lost his trophy wife.

According to People.com, Lawrence and his wife Shamicka have decided to end their marriage.

"Martin and Shamicka Lawrence have decided to divorce," a rep for the Big Momma's House star, 47, tells PEOPLE. "The couple has made the joint decision to part ways."

Not surprisingly, the two were together for 15 years before they finally tied the knot in 2010.

I would say that Shamicka followed Kim Porter's "Guide for Jump Offs and Gold Diggers" to a tee, but this is no time for jokes.

"Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together," the couple said in a joint statement released to PEOPLE by his rep.

As soon as insecure black men get a little paper and fame, they find themselves a gold digger/trophy wife to impress the other insecure black men in their circles. But marriages built on insecurity (and gold digging) never last long.

    I'm not understanding how she was a trophy wife if they were together for 15 years before they married... :shrugs:

    It's sad for the children, but Martin will bounce back (if he stays on his medication).

    As someone who is married I can tell you that for some reason unbeknownst to me, it IS different after you get married...both parties have expectations that didn't seem to be there before the marriage... :shrugs:

  • brownskin A.K.A Creamy

    why do every woman that dates a man, celeb, athletes, etc that has money has to be a gold digger, so in other words a man with money dont need a woman. (SO WHAT GO GET A MAN) this is the dumbest thing ever. WHAT WOMAN WANT A MAN THAT HAS NOTHING GOING FOR HIMSELF , BROKE. LOOKING AT HER ERR MORNING. :rolleyes: please lets redefined gold digger, and jump off, Dam shame (stereotyping at its finest) :coffee:

  • BigCityGirl

    Its a SHAME when any marriage fails! I'm sorry to hear this...but it seems like they just outgrew each out and that happens sometimes. Their separation/divorce appears to be civil so we won't be reading about assaults...lol

    He has a new sitcom coming on TV so he'll be busy....

    Good Morning Folks....Have a fantastic day!

  • NaijaGal

    @FeFe I :cosign: your #18...I think some people put up with ish when dating that they think will change when they're married...not accepting that the person you're dating is the same person you'll be marrying

    what Fefe said. she dont fit the trophy wife bill as long as she stuck around unmarried & like Mamacita said, it's baffling when couples break up like that after dating so many yrs then marrying. :shrug:

    ______________________________________________________

    I dont think it was a waste of time, 17 yrs committed is just like marriage just without the piece of paper the court give you.(TELLING YOU NOW YOU MARRIED CAUSE WE SAID SO) I think people got this whole thing messed up about marriage, AND HOW MAN has changes the game up. all you need is to go before the LORD make a vow get two witness, sign yall bond, file it at the local register office, umm that will do it, and the divorce same procedure. Marriage today is about status and MONEY it has nothing to do with love and the real foundations of what a marriage is suppose to be :no: <<<SMH

    She's the one that called 911 when he almost died while jogging trying to lose weight for Bad Boys 2. Martin was chubby back on What's Happening Now with Rog and Re-run, so he has weight issues. Some of these women look so blah, they are LSLH and they all look the same. She favors Tracey Edmonds, Bill Bellamy's wife, Will Smith's ex-wife etc..that's my only issue with the brothers when they chose the same flavor over and over again. Browner girls come in more flavors.

  • KeepingItClassy84

    Pretty girls.

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    I'm confused as to how you DATE for 13 years, then can't stay married for two?

    Sounds like to me she knew two years ago that the relationship was nearing an end and got married because being the ex-wife nets you more coins than simply being the baby mama will at the end of the day.

    I'm just guessin' though.

  • GAGIRL87

    :whistle: Martinnnnn Lawrence

  • Ms. Everything

    Wow... so every pretty woman is a gold digger or a trophy wife? Why can't he have liked her for her personality? Maybe they had a real connection? 15 years of dating and 2 of marriage is a long time for one of your dopamine connections :shrugs:

    I wish them both the best and pray their children come out of this unscathed. Martin's always been pretty private though so that's good. He's always been one of my favorite comedians

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    SAY THAT, TOO MANY PEOPLE TIP TOE AROUND THIS SUBJECT!!! IT'S TRUE INSECURE MEN LIKE DEON AND MARTIN USE THEIR STARDOM AND MONEY TO PULL THESE WOMEN, WOMEN WHO PROBABLY WOULDN'T HAVE GIVEN THEM THE TIME OF DAY OTHERWISE, THEN DAMN NEAR KILL THEMSELVES OR DEVISE ELABORATE PLOTS TO WHEN THEY LOSE THEM OR NEED TO RID THEMSELVES

    POOR MATE CHOICES AREN'T JUST MADE BY WOMEN~

    MARTIN A LIL SPECIAL ANY HOW

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    good he can get back funny all comedians who start off single then get married comedy career falls off lol

  • Ms. Everything

    @Carrington... there was a study out a while ago and from personal experience from the people I know shows that most people who date for years upon years and then get married end up divorcing pretty quickly. If you dated for 15 years and didn't see the point in marriage in all that time, then that means something is wrong there. And then you get married expecting that slip of paper and ring to mean something and realize the problems are still there and you're too tired of dealing with the same ol bs to fix it

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    I really need someone to explain this 15 year statement. Wasn't Martin married to Miss America less than 15 years ago?

  • Freda2you

    Hate to hear the marriage is over, but on a lighter note, don't that little girl look a hella like Bobbi Kristina as a baby?

  • Usual Suspect

    Maybe she'll come up like his first wife.

    I am shocked that he is 47!! When did that happen??

    REALLY?? Now dont you sound IGNORANT AS FUKK. Dont NONE of them women you named looked alike, for one. FLAVOR you say?? Naw, sound like your INSECURITIES are showing. "BROWN" chicks kill me, crying about when a man chose a "LIGHTSKIN" woman. Oh, somehow that makes him less than a man?? GTFOH. Bishes need to be concerned with the men that ACUALLY WANT THEM, and need not be concerned with the next chicks man.

    THIS is why WOMEN dont get along. SOME chicks phoney as hell and insecure and will do ANY and EVERYTHING to tear the next woman down. Then try to justify by analyizing the NEXT person. SO SAD
