Yaya DaCosta divorce

Reality TV star Yaya DaCosta is divorcing her husband after 3 years. The 32-year-old America's Next Top Model runner-up filed for divorce from Joshua Bee Alafia in Manhattan's Supreme Court on Thursday. She cited the oft-used "irreconcilable differences" excuse -- which is another way of saying she moved too quickly based on her feelings and not her common sense.

The couple tied the knot in 2012 following a whirlwind, dopamine-fueled romance.

Yaya starred as Whitney Houston in the Lifetime television biopic directed by Angela Bassett.

    I didn't know she was ever off the market. I still loved her story. Young, speaks several different languages fluently and pretty.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    For some reason I didn't see this lasting .... but eh ... another one bites the dust ... I guess it is a slow news day

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Welp. That was fast.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Sorry to hear that. She's beautiful. I actually wanted her to win over Eva.

  • Milani

    I had no idea she was even married.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Her soon to be ex looks like Howie Mandel.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Well I hope they can co-parent successfully.

  • Yoni

    She had a baby??????

  • Too Many Colors

    I liked her. She got hated on for being overly afro centric when her daddy FROM damn Africa I do belee. I was like well that's dumb AF. I was still watching ANTM then. Reading the comments from different places. And it was the sistas. I was so confused.

  • Too Many Colors

    She was gorgeous pregnant. She was on All My Children for a minute. Right before they took it off air

  • Just Keya

  • harley_quinn2.0

  • Bootcampgirl

  • Di Ana

    I thought it was ironic that after she did the Whitney Houston movie that they got a divorce. It must've been that love scene in the movie... it was borderline porno.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    DOVER, Del. – A Felton man is behind bars after an assault and robbery at a bus station Thursday.

    According to Dover Police, 28-year-old Brandon Ricks was arrested after confronting a man at the DART Bus Station located at 520 South Queen Street in Dover.

    Police say at around 5:10 p.m. on Thursday, Ricks punched the 52-year-old man multiple times, continuing even after the victim fell, and then stole his cell phone and other personal items.

    Police say Hicks then ran toward New Street. He was arrested a short time later, charged with assault and robbery and committed to JTVCC on $22,500 secured bond.

  • Di Ana

    He makes that other guy look like a prince.

  • Just Keya

    So Toya is now telling people that she is not teaching her daughter how to keep a man. She is teaching her daughter how to be a strong black woman. (after asked about how she explains her 8 day cheating hall pass to her daughter) God forgive me but I almost said how are you gonna teach her something you can't do your damn self. But maybe I just don't know. :kona:

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Shyt needs to STOP

  • Just Keya

    Me too. I was like so you about to go on tour with uncle Steph? lmao

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Where can I find this show?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    How you marry a man named Memp-hitz who has not one hit. The man is thirsty as hell too. What the hell did you see in that fool?

  • Bootcampgirl

    Lifeproof, water, dust, etc..

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    @Harley. I didn't because she was soooo jealous of Eva, they all were.

  • Bootcampgirl

    Oh, so you heard that bullshat too..I am kind of interested to see what she talks about in her book...

  • Just Keya

    THIS. Then someone tells you he is a snake, a woman beater and a theif, and you tell them no, you are wrong, just to find out that person was correct. THEN he has not one job in the first, wants to cheat on you, you allow it, and THEN on top of that, he buys you a set of rings, and lies about the price. Mind you, that was your fault for believing that shyt, because where would he get the money from to even buy a super expensive ring? HE HAS NO JOB. Then on top of that, you STAY embarrassed behind him. WHF is your SELF ESTEEM? Your SELF PRIDE??? Your COMMON DAMN SENSE???? Like the hell? SO you don't value your self more than this? ANd he done called you out of your name on IG on more than on occasion? You Toya need help. Because this fool ain't worth SHYT. At all. Nothing he talking bout, nothing he is doing, is worth shyt. And you are allowing him to treat you like shyt, AND in front of the whole damn world. She gets no respect from me. I mean if she don't demand it from her own damn husband, why should anyone else give it to her. I wonder when this girl turns 18 and Wayne's child support checks stop, what is she gonna do...her and her leach ass husband. Tuh.

  • Miany

    too late...men been wearing trainers for years lol

  • Call Me Mrs. B

    Why...just why!?!?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    She's just on TV looking stupid. I heard a clip of talking on the show and he irked my nerves. He's an arrogant a-hole and he has no reason to be. You sitting up here spending your wife's money. Your hustle of stealing artist advance money is over because no one will work with you. I blame Toya for not humbling his arse.

  • Call Me Mrs. B

    She was a better person than me doing that show with him. Especially when he flat out blamed her for his failure of a career. I don't condone violence...but I would've punched him dead in his throat and walked out. But no...she kept right on filming allowing him to keep on tossing out insults.

  • Just Keya

    Making that fool feel important. There is NO WAY I would allow myself to be with someone with no real ambition AND he is disrespectful. GET A JOB FOOL.

  • Call Me Mrs. B

    he irritated me...looked a fool and his voice (he sounded like a woman).

  • lyn Alexandra

    Yeah, Eva was my girl ,she killed it and she's still winning, I liked yaya as well but not over Eva...

  • Just Keya

    THIS!! And then have the nerve to say she wish people would closed their mouths. BYTCH are you stupid? YOU went on tv with this mess for the world to see? Now that you feel stupid, you want everyone to not have something to say? Welp, stay your ass off tv then. STOP spoon feeding the world your problems. STOP chasing a quick check, and jumping on bull shyt tv. Out of pocket.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    He did that's what pissed me of the most.

  • Call Me Mrs. B

    Thank you!!! She should've divorced Mickey's sorry azz a long time ago...had she divorced his broke azz, no one would be talking.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Oh my gosh , girl I'm so sorry . Do all the men around you way look like rodents? Or is just the rat with braids in the mug shot? He looks like he sits in corners hunched nibbling on stuff.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I ABSOLUTELY despise hood/street names. Especially when females call their Bae (despise that term too) by said name. ??

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I didn't see TLC biopic either but BOFF are on my DVR waiting. #dontjudge

  • Lolalao

    You nailed it..

  • Lolalao

    She's pregnant in that pic :)

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I was thinking the same thing about the off the market situation.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Her husband looks like johnny kemp the man who sang "Friday night, just got paid". May he rest in peace

  • Andrea Williams

    @Bootcampgirl......Good gracious, you are dealing with some specials if they all look like this. Lol, I would have said a couple of hours ago that he stands a chance in the contest, but when I went out for lunch, he got bumped. I saw a couple of brothers that makes him and the ugly contest winner look like Denzel and Idris! Y'all ain't got nothing on some of our Georgia boys. They can be some real panty-puller uppers! LOL, have a good weekend.

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    AAAAAHHHHDAYUM!!!! THIS ROCKED ME THE FUK BACK IN MY SEAT! ROFL

  • Fendi

    He looks a lot older than she does. I can only assume that maybe that was a contributing factor to the dissolution of their marriage. I thought she had a baby with him as well. I'm honestly not surprised, considering how she acted on ANTM. You can be intelligent, well traveled and well read and not be arrogant.

  • Yoni

    I just thot her boobs were swollen.

  • Sexyniq29

    He's Sharon Leal's ex husband and son's father! She does have a little boy with him! Yaya always came off as I'm better than u! I wish the both of them the best!

  • eljjai

    but weren't they divorcing last year? this isn't the first time people talk of a split. I wanted to like this chic but her atitude stinks.

  • eljjai

    i didn't like her coz she lacked grace. Not coz she was afrocentric. she alwas wanted to fling her education in people's faces, like she's the first black woman to go to Brown. She often talked out of pocket and had little respect for the judges. She once started a fight all by herself over some hat becuase she thought they had expected her to choose it and no one had said anything at all.
    She just really lacked grace and class. I mean even ghetto Eva had more class than her.

  • Li

    WHAT does he do for a living?

  • Renee Bee

    Preach! All of this!!!!!!
