SWV lead singer Cheryl “Coko” Clemmons, nee Gamble, has split from her husband of 15 years “Big Mike” Clemmons. Coko, 47, announced her divorce on her personal blog Hotcoko.com on Sunday.
“We always thought we’d be together forever!” She wrote in a post titled “After the Love Is Gone“.
“Through the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups and the downs…we’d still be married. But, things don’t always work out the way we plan or hope. After 15 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to call it quits. Our fairytale has come to an end. I’ll definitely miss him! But life goes on and I have to make the best of it.
I wish him all the best in his future. I pray that he will lack nothing! For the sake of our son we will do our best to co-parent. We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love.”
Coko, who is the single mother of a teenage son, said she draws strength from the support of her network of family and friends “that hold me down. My Village!! I am blessed and highly favored!!”
Coko also has a grown son, Jazz Gamble, from a brief romantic interlude with Digable Planets rapper Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler (pictured below).
