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.
