Carl Payne and Malika Payne divorce

Actor Carl Payne, star of "The Cosby Show" and "Martin", is available now if you ladies want him. According to gossip tabloid, Carl's wife, Malika Payne, filed for a divorce after 20 years and draining his bank accounts dry.

Mailka is naturally asking for everything including the kitchen sink.

Melika Payne cites irreconcilable differences in the docs she filed last month in L.A. County Superior Court. The couple has a son, and she's asking for sole physical custody and joint legal.

Melika also wants spousal support from Carl -- who's probably best known as Walter "Cockroach" Bradley ... Theo's pal on "The Cosby Show."

Carl and Melika got married back in 1992 -- the same year he started on "Martin" -- and separated in 2012.

Small consolation, but 20-years is a pretty damn good run in Hollywood ... or just about anywhere, these days. Source

    • Man, I just don’t care™

      Um.. she looks like a zombie. :eek:

      I think of him as Cole too.

      Come on. When the money is gone, the love ain't far behind. 20 years is basically a success these days. Did they have any kids?

      20 years is basically a success these days.

      gotta agree with that, even though my parents have been married mannie mannie years :shrug:

      Man, you see they tryna get your kissing congressman to resign? they must not like him for some other reason 'cause they usually circle the wagons when one of them gets caught. i mean, even the old man who was trolling for young boys was afforded more consideration than they're giving McAllister.

    • KayCeiSoul

      But is the troof.

      It just gives me the willys to see a big mess of chesshurhs on a man.
      AND he's short? Look like a lil' troll. :no:

      I like a thin layer...but not all that untamed wilderness. Ugh. :-D

    • Nasir Rahim

      Im sure one of the budding chicken head actresses will scoop him up.

    • Nasir Rahim

      He's a good dude tho. I wish him the best.

      Morning y’all I would hope that after being married for twenty years, we could work things out.



      This is really how I feel about it too.
      You done seen my dirty laundry, 2 days after I couldn't get to it.

      You done stepped on toenail clippings.

      You done heard me snore-snort-snore, in that order.

      You done seen me lift the sheets with gas and didn't run or die.

      You done seen me wake up with wop-sided hurh and walking crooked until my byke straightened out after my stretches.

      You done talked to me, full facial conversations, as soon as I turn over from a comatose, drank induced, raw stomach sleep with NO TOOTHPASTE the next mornin'.

      You done heard all the "behind their back" perspectives about all of my friends, family, kids, and co-workers.

      You ain't leaving after 20 years. We in this fo' LIFE. :coffee:
