Outkast rapper Big Boi and his wife, local entrepreneur Sherlita Patton, have dropped their plans for divorce.
If you recall, Sherlita filed for divorce from the rap mogul on Oct. 2.
At the time Sherlita stated the marriage was “irretrievably broken.” She sought alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees, and child support for the couple’s two children, son Cross (who just made the Honor Roll at school) and daughter Jordan, who graduated high school last year.
It is always a blessing when couples put the needs of their children before their own. It is so easy to file for divorce and walk away from a marriage. But mature, responsible couples who understand that marriage is a continuous work in progress will persevere through the hard time and make their marriage work.
Congrats to Big Boi and Sherlita!
From gossip tabloid TMZ:
ANDRE 3000 is not the only person with whom BIG BOI has reunited … we’ve learned he and his estranged wife have dropped their divorce … shocking because it was super contentious.
As TMZ first reported … Big Boi’s wife, Sherlita Patton, FILED DIVORCE DOCS last October after 11 years of marriage. She demanded support and full custody. Big Boi RESPONDED that she wasn’t getting anything without a fight.
But in quiet fashion … the two filed docs earlier this month asking the judge to 86 the divorce … and the judge obliged.
The move is not completely out of left field — Big Boi posted a photo of Patton on Mother’s Day with the caption, “Happy Mother’s Day to my queen.”
Meanwhile, due to heavy demand, Outkast has added a third concert at Centennial Olympic Park at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28.
