Stacey Dash has reportedly split from her husband of two years. The 54-year-old actress, activist and pro-Trump supporter announced the news on Instagram on Thursday.
She said she made the decision to end her marriage to lawyer Jeffrey Marty after a lot of soul searching.
"After much prayer, I feel this is the right path for both of us," she wrote.
The news comes seven months after Stacey was arrested in Florida following a domestic disturbance. The actress called police to report her husband for putting her in a chokehold during a fight. He countered that she allegedly pushed and slapped him, according to TMZ.
Days later, prosecutors dropped the domestic violence case due to a lack of evidence.
Marty is Dash's fourth husband - she was previously married to Emmanuel Xuereb, James Maby, and Brian Lovell.

Governor Brian Kemp signed an Executive Order canceling his shelter-in-place order, effective at midnight tonight (April 30).
"Tonight at 11:59 p.m., the statewide shelter in place order for most Georgians will expire. However, moving forward, I am urging Georgians to continue to stay home whenever possible. I want to thank the people of our great state who heeded public health advice, afforded us time to bolster our healthcare infrastructure, and flattened the curve. We were successful in these efforts, but the fight is far from over."
Kemp urged businesses that decide to open to "operate with strict social distancing and sanitation rules to keep customers and employees safe through May 13, 2020."
Gov. Kemp also signed an order requiring the medically fragile and elderly to continue to shelter in place through June 12.
"Together, we will defeat this virus and emerge stronger. Thank you, and God Bless," he concluded.

Joe Biden's team suggests that his choice for vice president won't be a Black woman. According to Politico.com, Biden's presidential campaign announced their VP selection committee on Thursday. The four-member committee is majority Caucasian.
The committee which is tasked with vetting Biden's VP choice includes Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Biden's longtime friend and Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, and former White House Senate counsel Cynthia Hogan.
The only Black person on the committee is Delaware congresswoman Lisa Blount Rochester. Biden says he hopes the vetting process will be completed by July.

Rumors are running rampant that Biden has already made his choice: Hillary Clinton who enthusiastically endorsed him earlier this week.
Stacey Abrams, who initially stated she did not want the VP job, changed her mind after she heard Biden's announcement that he would choose a woman.
The failed gubernatorial candidate has been campaigning ever since for the VP pick -- even though political strategists frown upon any candidate campaigning for vice president.
South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, who has advocated for Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms as VP, seems to have his doubts.
When asked by MSN if having a Black woman on the ticket is a must, Clyburn said. "I'm among those who feel that it would be great for him to select a woman of color. But that is not a must."

Experts say people younger than age 50 should be allowed to leave their homes amid the coronavirus lockdowns.
People over 50 should be quarantined in their homes or face fines if they can't prove their age while out and about.
A Warwick University study found that a "rolling age-release strategy" was the best option to ease the quarantine restrictions and allow people to return to work.
The strategy is based on the high percentage of deaths among coronavirus victims older than 50. The study's author wrote that police should be given powers to fine people if they can't prove their age.
The study, based on Chinese data, said adults over 50 would be allowed out of their homes when a vaccine becomes available next year.
"Our risk graphs... show very clearly that younger people are at far less risk of dying from COVID-19 than older citizens," said Andrew Oswald, a professor at Warwick.
"Any lockdown release policy that does not design itself around this "Age gradient" in human coronavirus risk will have dangerous consequences," he said.

So far, Jeannie hasn't responded to Jasmine's messy posts. Jeannie's keeping herself busy planning her wedding to the former drug dealer.
It is typical of newly engaged men to reach out to their exes to see if they've still got it -- or if they can still get it.
Men are so predictable, aren't they?

Police in North Carolina are asking for the public's help to find a missing lesbian couple who recently got engaged after moving in together.
Stephanie Mayorga, 27, and Paige Escalera, 25, disappeared shortly after moving in together. They have not been seen since April 15, the Wilmington Police Department said Monday.
The women recently became engaged though they haven't known each other long, Escalera's sister Stevie Jenkins told Oxygen.com.
She said one of the women left her cell phone behind on her bed. The couple's new roommate found the phone.
"They had only lived there a week or so before they went missing," Jenkins told Oxygen.com. "As I have been contacting her close friends, I have found that every single one of them had been blocked from her social media over the last week or two.
"It is normal for family to not hear from her, but not her closest friends. As I spoke with Stephanie's friends, they say it isn't normal at all that they don't hear from Stephanie."
Jenkins said Mayorga's phone had been cut off on April 15 -- the same day they vanished.
"Her boss says he tried calling her when she never showed the next morning."
Jenkins said her sister has had her share of troubles but said "she is an amazing person and has always pulled out making the right choices."
Police believe the women may be traveling in a dark grey Dodge Dart with South Carolina tags.

Jay-Z was dumbfounded when it came to his attention that there were audio clips on YouTube that sounded like the aging rapper reciting "To be, or not to be," the opening line of a soliloquy from Shakespeare's play Hamlet.
The audio might have impressed the "Song Cry" rapper - if it was really was him reciting Shakespeare.
You've heard about the "deepfake" videos that alters photos and videos to look like celebrities or political figures. YouTube and Facebook are on a mission to take down all deep fake videos in the wild.
But, until now, deepfake audio wasn't a problem.
The technology uses text-to-speech software to computer-generate Jay-Z's speech patterns. Literally, someone typed the text of the soliloquy and used Jay-Z's speech patterns to make the audio.
If that sounds scary to you, imagine how it sounds to Jay-Z. Imagine if that software fell into the wrong hands.
Think of how easily a blogger could fool Jay-Z's wife, Beyonce, into believing he's cheating on her with Megan Thee Stallion.

Tiny, 44, captioned the pic: "Happy birthday to my blood sister... I'm happy to be your lil sis!! No makeup no filters needed...this love raw & real."
We don't know how old Michelle is, but she doesn't look her age - whatever it is!
Michelle's mom, Dianne Cottle-Pope, also wished her eldest daughter a happy birthday on Instagram.
"Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you. I love you my baby with many blessings ... Everyone help me wish my daughter a HBD."

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is set to close all beaches and state parks in response to crowded beaches in Orange County.
Newsom is expected to make the announcement Thursday, according to NBCLA. The governor lashed out at images of sunbathers crowding Southern California beaches in his news conference on Monday.
The order will go into effect on Friday, May 1, and there is no indication how long the beaches and parks will be closed.

Thousands of sunbathers have gathered at beaches and parks in violation of Newsom's shelter-in-place orders to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
About 80,000 people crowded the sandy shores of Newport Beach from Friday to Sunday, leading to an emergency city council meeting, NBCLA reported.
On Tuesday, the Newport Beach City Council voted against a proposal that would have shut down the city's beaches for the next three weekends.
Some California law enforcement officials have said they will not enforce Newsom's restrictive shelter-in-place order, as they believe it is a violation of Constitutional rights.
Democratic government officials have been overly aggressive in their response to the coronavirus, particularly since the public now believes the pandemic is not as deadly as health officials claimed it would be.
Many say the death tolls have been padded with non-Covid-19-related deaths.
Some state officials have removed hundreds of people from Covid-19 death counts after coroners and physicians complained about irregularities.
Many Americans believe the coronavirus has been politicized by Democrats who are desperate to put mail-in ballots in the hands of every American.

Denver police have charged a woman with fatally shooting a fellow postal worker during an argument near her home.
Jenny Nguyen, 27, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jamal Zachary Thompson, 26.
Police responded to calls of shots fired and a vehicle crash at the intersection of 54th Avenue and Yampa Street at 12:10 a.m. Saturday.
Thompson was found by police in a wrecked Ford Fusion that had rolled into a field. He was deceased with a gunshot wound to the neck and "had been thrown about the interior of the vehicle," according to a police report obtained by CBS4.
Police found Nguyen's driver's license on the passenger seat of the car. Officers recovered 9mm shell casings on 54th Avenue. A homeowner there told police an angry Asian-American woman was driving the car a half hour earlier.
The man identified Nguyen as the angry female driver after police showed him the driver's license.
Thompson's mother told police her son and Nguyen had been in an on-again, off-again relationship.
Nguyen and Thompson were both employed by the US Postal Service but they worked at different locations, according to CBS4.
Police executed a search warrant at Nguyen's residence on Saturday morning near 54th and Tower Road.
Investigators recovered a disassembled 9mm handgun in a bedroom heater vent. The gun's barrel was missing. Recordings from the home's video surveillance camera had been deleted.
Thompson leaves behind a 4-year-old son. A GoFundMe account raised over $4,000 to help pay Thompson's funeral expenses.
