Outkast's Big Boi is back on the market. The 47-year-old rapper finalized his divorce from Sherlita Patton after 20 years of marriage and 2 children.

Legal documents obtained by TMZ show the court entered the final divorce decree in May. Big Boi just filed for the divorce in April. But Sherlita has previously filed for divorce from the rapper, real name Antwan André Patton.

Big Boi also has a son, whom he fathered with a mistress during his marriage to Sherlita.

Big Boi is best known as one half of Grammy-winning hip-hop duo Outkast alongside André 3000.

In his divorce filing, Big Boi said there was "no reasonable hope of reconciliation" and they'd already separated and were living apart for years.

The two agreed to a postnuptial agreement in 2016, and more recently agreed to a confidential financial settlement.

As part of the divorce, they agreed there would be no mudslinging or making threats of "injury, maltreating, molesting, harassing, harming, or abusing" in any way shape or form.

As TMZ reported, Sherlita filed for divorce from the rapper back in 2013 after multiple episodes of infidelity and at least one outside child.

She demanded financial support and full custody of their two children - son Cross and daughter Jordan. But they later reconciled and agreed to an amicable marriage.

At the time, Big Boi gave all the glory to God.

Airbnb, Instagram

Rapper Big Boi is giving Outkast fans the chance to rent the Atlanta home where the duo recorded some of their biggest hits.

Big Boi is teaming up with Aibnb to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic album ATLIENS.

The six-time Grammy Award winner also listed The Dungeon in honor of Black Music Month.

The hip-hop star is offering three overnight stays at the renovated house known as The Dungeon via Airbnb, with the June and July bookings available on a first come, first served basis.

Airbnb will begin taking bookings on AIrbnb on June 25.

Renters who live in the Atlanta area will also get an added bonus - a ride to and from the custom crib in an Escalade.

Once there, guests will be invited to take a tour of the famed basement, where OutKast and the Goodie Mob, both part of The Dungeon Family collective, created some of their earliest works.

There are gold and platinum plaques on the wall, and they even signed their names on the walls of the makeshift studio.

Other rooms are packed with memorabilia paying homage to Atlanta venues which inspired the music of The Dungeon Family.

There is also a top-of-the-line studio filled with Yamaha hi-fi audio equipment.

The home previously belonged to music producer Rico Wade's mother, but Big Boi purchased it two years ago. He has now teamed up with Airbnb bosses to offer overnight stays for just $25 per night - not including taxes and fees.

As part of the deal, Airbnb officials will make a donation to the Atlanta Public Schools Music Department to expand resources and increase access to music education for young students, reports TMZ.

Janelle and Monica at Outkast Reunion concert

Natural beauties Monica Brown, right, and Janelle Monáe posed together at Outkast's Georgia Reunion concert at CounterPoint Music Festival in Rome, GA over the weekend. For some reason the group chose to perform in Rome (of all places) rather than in their hometown of Atlanta. But that didn't stop hardcore fans from making the trip to Kingston Downs in the driving rain to watch their favorite group belt out their hits.

Big Boi and Sherlita Patton

The Atlanta Journal-Constition reports the wife of Outkast rap star Big Boi, filed for divorce on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

According to court documents obtained by the AJC, Antwon A. Patton married Sherlita M. Patton in February 2002, and the two are currently separated.

This is the second (or third) separation for the couple, who had marriage problems in the past due to Big Boi's alleged infidelities.

But friends say Sherlita stayed with her husband for the sake of their two children, son Cross and daughter Jordan (pictured above with her parents at her graduation).

It was confirmed years ago that Big Boi fathered a son, Bamboo, with another woman.

The divorce complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, claims that the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” and is seeking alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees.

Antwon and Sherlita Patton have two children — ages 18 and 12 — and Sherlita Patton is asking for sole custody of the younger child and corresponding child support, according to the filing.

Friends believe Sherlita delayed filing divorce papers for the sake of her children. But now that the kids are grown, she is moving on with her life.

Still, one of Big Boi's friends was critical of Sherlita's actions.

Now we know who Jada Pinkett was referring to.

"She been in it this long, she's supposed to know how it goes," he said, referring to the known fact that married men cheat.
