Gina Torres Laurence Fishburne

Actress Gina Torres has confirmed she and husband Laurence Fishburne are separated after photos surfaced of her kissing another man on Tuesday.

Torres' and Fishburne's 15th wedding anniversary was this past Friday.

Torres, 48, released a statement to E! News on Wednesday that reads:

"With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected."

The couple was last seen in public together in December 2015, at the 38th annual Kennedy Center Honors Gala. Page Six published photos of Torres passionately kissing another man at an outdoor cafe in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The gossip column reported that the couple spent an hour at the Sweet Butter Cafe and that Torres wasn't wearing her wedding ring. The paparazzi photos sparked rumors that Torres and Fishburne had split.

Torres and Fishburne, 56, share a daughter, Delilah, 10, and Fishburne has two adult children from a previous marriage.

Fishburne currently stars in the ABC TV sitcom Black-ish.

    Laurence has always looked older than he is, that's how he got the part in Apocalypse Now at age 14. He's 7 years older than Cuba Gooding, Jr. and 9 years older than Anthony Anderson but has played their father.

  • Pamela

    Lawrence was born in 1961. He made Apocalypse Now when he was 18 years old not 14. Facts are facts.

  • Vonn

  • Vonn

    Larry looks like he use to drank folks under the table.

  • Bam Bam Li

    Such a shame, they seemed like such a nice couple ?

  • Soda

    He was cast at age 14, Apocalypse Now filmed in 1976, released in 1979.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Cute little girl but she does not look like her parents to me. Hopefully he never hears the words, you are NOT the father!!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Insane Taco Juice


  • Pamela

    Oh, okay. Thanks for the 114.

  • TheOwley

    They made such a lovely couple but these Hollywood marriages are cursed. Makes you wonder what happened and why the normally under the radar actress is galavanting around so publicly sucking face with that dude. The PDA is meant for Laurence. Sad.

  • bella28498 .

    I knew this relationship was over when I started watching her tv show suits.....I could tell

  • Vegas1989

    True that...I wouldn't want to drink with him

  • Vegas1989

    Morpheus, I'm sorry to hear this. Now give her the red pill and she will be gone out of your life....LOL

  • Scromes1212

    So let me get this straight. She cheats on her husband with a white dude and this is y'all response? Could you imagine if it was the other way around? No cave demon comments? No "but she is still technically married "? She puts out a paragraph statement and everybody is cool smh people be so biased it's ridiculous smh

  • Scromes1212

    Only reason she made a statement is cause her ass got caught cheating on her husband. Period. She ain't fooling nobody smh why hasn't fishburne made a comment?

  • Applebootay

    Like I said before, they split a long time ago....this isn't new news to me..

  • Applebootay

    They've been separated for a long if that's considered cheating then whatevs....My ex husband stalled our divorce for 3 years, we were living separately for all that time...and yes, I guess we both cheated on each other until the divorce was final....puhlease stop acking brand new...

  • nick c

    Mine was stalled three years too it sucks people can do that and claim they still "married" to you the whole time. Controlling relationship behavior is still crazy out here in the streets.

  • Scromes1212

    Please make this same comment when a black man says we been separated along time.

  • Scromes1212

    The problem is when a man says we are separated and the woman still wants to be with him then there hollering about there still technically married. But when your done with the relationship then you hollering about just move on with your life smh if we saying that separated means I can date other people then let's just keep it the same way across the board. If that's what it is that's what it is. And I'm not talking about you, I'm just speaking in general. In my humble opinion

  • Cleopatra_5150

    I named myself, my alia/handle, after her show, Cleopatra 2525; just put 5150 on mines, for my own spin-off. I don't condone her behavior, but wont change how I feel about her persona. You should stick by folks through the good and bad.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    This is my first time seeing them too.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    So sorry they didn't work out! She left her hit show, Suits. Maybe filming in Canada took a toll on their marriage or people want to do in different directions or grow apart. I like both, and people shouldn't paint her as a villain because she was publicly affectionate with her boyfriend. I know technically, she's still married.

    Maybe they put the breaks on it, and want to see if they get back together, it does happen!

    But, I'm sure Lawrence is also keeping company, you just haven't seen it! Men very seldom get over a breakup by themselves!


    they were a nice looking big-faced couple. what a shame things didn't work out. she realized the best way to get over one man is to get under another, though....

  • KLo

    who cares . FL should go *uck himself

  • Applebootay

    I will. ID NOT GAF what my ex was doing or who he was doing it with. He refused to give me a divorce....I was busy taking care of our children.....I definitely got on with my life and wasn't going to wait on no divorce papers...HELL we consummated the relationship before we got a marriage license so what's the difference afterwards???

  • Kayke

    And even if she's 16, she's not the one doing pörn. That daughter I believe her name is Montana and she's an ADULT film star.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    The wardrobe is simply awesome! She left Suits, but they left it where she can come back, and hopefully, she will!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I found that so interesting! Some people just look older than their years! It's his talent that got us, the voice, his portrayals, not so much his looks! I can't believe he was only 7 years older than Cuba when he played his father, what an actor!

  • TheWildChild
  • Rhyme and Reason

    More than half of all marriages in divorce, so you're right, celebrities are included in this number!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    The only ting, the wife usually didn't get the memo or dude is hedging his bet, or he's on break, but probably going back, needed some excitement, or have no intentions of ever divorcing while living a single lifestyle (never having to marry again)!

    Or, dating, living with other women, and might go back home in the distant future, if he gets bored enough or sick!

  • Karla E

    He's just as into her as she is into him. I love this! Sorry, Lawrence! Girl, get yo life. LF must have fell off 'cause I can't see a married woman looking blissfully into another man eyes if that wasn't the case. Men (just like women) become complacent in marriages. She needed that passion again and found it elsewhere. Not mad at her....

  • Dahl

    Aaaw nooo...but in other news, now I stand a shot ?

  • Benjamin

    Get it girl..and he's cute.

  • Karla E

    Their daughter is cute. Gina look like she don't play no games. She is definitely a hands on mother and won't be none of that same crap like with his other daughter who we haven't heard from since that sex tape fiasco.

  • Karla E


  • Mystery comment

    They had great chemistry on Hannibal. Too bad it doesn't translate well in real life for actors.

  • Li

    That pic taken of her kissing a "friend" looks like she was being tailed by a detective to take pics for Lawrence. They may be in the process of getting a divorce and if one party wants the upper hand, they get proof that the other was cheating.

  • Li

    That's either a picture taken on the set of a movie - or a picture snapped by a detective that was tailing her.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Damn, Gina!
