Black-ish creator Kenya Barris filed for divorce from his wife, Dr. Rania "Rainbow” Barris, after 20 years of marriage. According to The Blast, Barris filed for divorce on Friday in L.A. County, California.

The documents did not give a specific reason for the divorce action. The couple share 6 children together.

Dr. Barris is an anesthesiologist affiliated with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She also has an office in Encino, CA.

In 2016, 2 days after he inked a lucrative deal with 20th Century Fox, Harris was hit with a $1 million lawsuit by music video director Bryan Barber, claiming Barris ripped off the idea for Black-ish from him.

Barber accused Barris of shopping "the pilot episode for Black-ish without [his] knowledge or authorization." Barber claims Black-ish is based on his life. The parties later settled out of court.

Barris serves as executive producer on Black-ish, as well as it's spinoff show, Grown-ish.

He recently signed a deal with Netflix reportedly worth upwards of $100 million dollars to produce exclusive content for the Internet streaming giant.

    Good, don't stay if it ain't working. They not to old to find love and keep it moving.

  • Diva_woman

    I’m shocked, I just listened to a podcast with her on it talking about making life work for them. After 6 kids it gotta be something real serious to leave. And some of their kids are still young smh

  • Diva_woman

    With her having 6 kids and she’s likely to have majority custody she will not be dating soon. Men have it so easy sometimes. You have 6 kids by me and then you get to go out and be a rich executive and live your life. I hope they do joint so he has as much responsibility as she does. She was saying on a podcast how he kept getting her pregnant bc he knew she was beautiful and smart and men would flirt with her. She’s an anesthesiologist. This is a shame though.

I never watch Black-ish he’s has a new show called Mixed-ish I won’t be watching that either. Y’all we need to ask Kcool breezy why the marriage ended, he probably the person who gets everyone coffee.???

  • the guest

    She probably exhibited a minute sense of independence like asking about THEIR money or marital assets or she refused to have a 7th baby.

    Controlling keep a wife barefoot and pregnant men like him will divorce a good wife as punishment for her showing any kind of independence.

    We already know he’s a sadist from the side gf that outed him. This man is a sociopath who derives pleasure from hurting women.

    committed suicide. Good riddance coward?!

  • Lovely517

    It’s being reported that Epstein committed suicide in jail. What a freakin coward. Ruined the lives of 100’s of women and had the nerve to take the easy way out. Well on a brighter note, now he can burn for all eternity??

  • WhoKnew

    OT: In today's crazy AF and racist news....

    A man walked into a Walmart in Florida and asked a sales clerk if they could sell him a gun that would kill about 200 people. It was later determined that the man said he was an anti-gun activist. I don't know. Folks are cray cray in Florida.

    A college athlete was pulled over for speeding in South Carolina. Then a bright-eyed bushy tailed racist cop noticed a white substance on the hood of his car and asked him what it was. The young man replied that it was bird shyt. The officer then tested the poop and determined it was cocaine and arrested him. Further testing, however, showed the substance was indeed only bird poop. I'm sure he has lawyered up by now and rightly so.

  • Omandesert

    They murdered that mother fucker. He knew way to much ?

  • WhoKnew

    Anybody seen NicHoe Murphy lately? Wonder whose hazzband she chasing after now.

  • Gloria

    He didn’t kill himself. He was already on suicide watch. It was an assassination. He has dirt on way too many powerful people so he had to go.

  • Bree

    What's happening after twenty years of marriage that people no longer want to be together!?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly and they do know how to get in the mind to control it to commit suicide ..(mind control)... these same folks will get caught as usual ..... fawk all demons and their days are numbered!

  • Bree

    It's amazing how they go on suicide watch after being caught doing so much dirt. You can never win when you are dirty.

  • Marlika

    I wanna know why Ghislaine Maxwell Epstein’s longtime companion and confidant is not rotten in prison.? This bish is just as bad as Epstein. I was reading that it’s believe that this mofo got most of his money blackmailing the high profile “friends” he provided the girls for.

  • Marlika

    His wife is ugly, she favors Tish Campbell a little. So they gonna just throw 20 years away.????? She looks white with a enhancements and a tan to appear more ethnic.?

  • DroneRivers

    Jeffrey Epstein found dead in jail of an apparent "suicide". I guess he was taken off suicide watch...

  • Vonn

    Or they weren't doing a good job watching.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    From what I've read, it looks like the Feds have a lot of evidence on Ghislaine Maxwell. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the prosecutors make her the focus of their attention going forward. Wouldn't surprise me if she ends up dying in prison when all is said and done.

  • Ghost

    When the names started dropping...I knew “suicide” would be imminent! Don’t believe it was suicide but sometimes folks get what they deserve!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    One of the most important witnesses in one of the most scandalous sex cases in US history... and he ends up committing suicide? Either somebody dropped the ball real bad, or he paid somebody off to look the other way.

  • Karen Brady

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I was just watching the news thinking somebody got paid

  • Marlika

    She should’ve been in jail. Her and Epstein settled a civil suit with one of the victims in 2017. She’s probably already hiding in a country with no expedition.

  • Seldomseen

    ???

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah two people got exposed yesterday and that was two too many.

    I knew he wouldn't live long whether he was killed while behind bars or out on the streets.

  • Seldomseen

    Never saw it, what makes it a coonfest

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Don't worry she will be the next found 'suicided'.
    These people are NOT playing.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Kenya is also the creator of another Black-ish spin off new show Mixed-ish(whom new theme song is written and sung by Mariah Carey).

    BTW: Kenya's wife looks like a cross between Maya Rudolph(whom i saw live as part of the Prince(r.i.p.) tribute group Princess) & Tisha Campbell.

  • Fire & Ice

    We all said that he would end up dead in jail. The higher up's had him knocked off. Too many powerful people were going to be exposed.

  • Vonn

    She's making a list, and checking it twice
    Gonna find out who has the most gullible wife
    Cuz....
    NicHoe is prowling the town, NicHoe is prowling the town!!

  • T Willis

    I thought so too

  • T Willis

    I can definitely see how he was inspired with Black-ish. Wife named Rainbow, and the oldest son definitely looks like the kid who plays Jr.

    Interesting that Kenya is the one that filed for divorce.

  • Seldomseen

    Jail either very negligent or complicit....

  • rockstar2142

    That's what I'm not understanding he was on suicide watch so how does this happen.

  • rockstar2142

    How does it work? do they not watch the person 24/7.

  • WhoKnew

    Kenya prolly got a new bae that was putting pressure on him to leave. I don't know that for sure but people (men and women) reach an age when they think the grass is greener on the other side.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile I hope that pedophile was not on suicidal watch...."one to one" becuz if he was some heads are finna roll.... one less nasty pedophile tew worry about

  • WhoKnew

    Was in the grocery store and people in line were talking about it and a few folks in line don't think it was suicide. One person said Clinton's name was about to come out next as well as a host of huge names in the political arena and entertainment industry.

  • WhoKnew

    " I guess he was taken off suicide watch..."
    ___________________________________

    Welp, I heard that the camera's were conveniently not working when he did it. I don't know because they stories take on a life of their own and grow into 20 different scenarios.

  • DroneRivers

    Well, my suspicious ass thinks he was killed. But I guess suicide watch only lasts for a short period of time and when the inmate seems stable again they relax it. But I really don't know. It was just a few weeks ago that he was put on watch because of those injuries. I would have thought he'd still be under watch. Or maybe someone was paid to look away? *shrug*

  • DroneRivers

    I can believe it!

  • DroneRivers

    That's what I think too. That's why I said "suicide" lol

  • T Willis

    Or maybe they grew apart. Some women feel like after a certain age they don’t need to look or do certain things because they feel like they’re past that point in their life. Not realizing that these are the attributes that made them desirable.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Exactly it was best for him dead to those people..

  • RealATLPeach36

    No! We needed him to bring down the others!

  • Renee26

    Sad for them; nice looking family

  • Alextra Ballard

    I know they glad he dead...cuz some nasty shidt was finna be exposed

  • Renee26

    Good Riddance

  • Alextra Ballard

    Suicide was still tew easy....he really needed to suffer more

  • Renee26

    Hopefully the ones he already exposed will also have lose lips...and they all get peeled off one by one

  • Alextra Ballard

    Clinton line ass said he only rode on Epstein’s Jet three time....come tew fine out it was 11/12 times

  • Renee26

    'suicided'

    Giggles

  • WhoKnew

    Yeah. He was definitely lion and they say his name was the next to drop.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I really hate to see the demise of anybidy’s marriage especially when their’s kids

  • WhoKnew

    But I wonder does this end the investigation? There are still living people who were complicit in helping him pull this off.

  • WhoKnew

    Me too.

  • WhoKnew

    So the news is reporting that Epstein was still supposed to be on suicide watch and the FBI is now involved and investigating how a person on suicide watch ended up hung. This here is a mess.

  • WhoKnew

    Right. And who gives up after 20 years? That's 20 years of my life but if it couldn't be fixed it just couldn't be fixed.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I know my eyes again are deceiving me,because homeboy looks a tad bit like The Rock in that second pix

  • WhoKnew

    I might watch it.

  • WhoKnew

    "She looks like Mya Rudolph In the first picture"
    ______________________________________

    She does look like Mya. I love Mya's quirky looking face and she is so freaking funny.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Sew he was still on suicidal watch???....like I stated below heads finna roll......

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Me too!!?

  • RealATLPeach36

    Unsure...but those Clinton’s are MF they got pull...

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Chile, I've seen this kind of mess before. Stealing of ideas and discarding folks who've supported them as soon as they get on. But you're correct, karma will not be pretty when it foes come to pay him and folks like him a visit.
