Talib Kweli Greene is back on the market. According to reports, his wife DJ Eque, real name Cynthia Greene, filed for divorce after 11 years of marriage.
In court documents, Greene cited irreconcilable differences. Their union did not produce children. Kweli shares two kids, Diani Eshe and Amani Fela Greene, from his past relationship with Darcel Turner.
It's not clear if Greene asked for spousal support or if they had a prenup.
The 45-year-old rapper is best known as one half of the duo Black Star with fellow Brooklyn rapper Mos Def.
Kweli's 2007 solo album Eardrum peaked at the #2 position on the Billboard 200 chart and featured collaborations with will.i.am, Kanye West, Just Blaze, and Pharrell Williams. The album spawned the hit single "Listen!!!"
The divorce action comes after Kweli was kicked off Twitter for harassing women in August 2020.
Twitter cited the rapper for "repeated violations" (such as) violence, harassment and other similar types of behavior (that) discourage people from expressing themselves".

The Fast & Furious star, who shares two-year-old daughter Soraya with Samantha, announced the split in a post on his Instagram page on Tuesday.
"We have decided to make a statement of a painful and significant development in our lives," he wrote.
"After much thought, consideration, and prayer, We unfortunately have made the difficult decision to officially separate & divorce. Our intention is to remain the best of friends & strong coparents."
Tyrese, who regularly documents his turbulent life on social media, continued:
"We feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and deeply grateful for the 4 years we have been married to each other, Our journey together has been a ride of both ups & downs, but it’s a journey that neither of us would have chosen to take with anyone else. We truly have so much love & respect for each other. We both have grown tremendously within this relationship; we have shared so many beautiful memories and moments, and we also look forward to see the amazing futures we have ahead of us individually."
The actor concluded his post by stating that he wanted not to take any bad energy into 2021.
"As if 2020 hasn't already been extremely grueling and challenging to us all we wanted to mutually speak on this now to keep this energy in 2020 and not take this energy into 2021. We would really appreciate your most sincere prayers and to respect our privacy at this time as we deal with the reality of where we are. Thank you, Sincerely & Respectfully, Samantha & Tyrese Gibson."
The girl dad's marriage to Samantha was his second - he was previously married to ex-wife Norma, with whom he shares 13-year-old daughter Shayla.
Tyrese and Samantha shared a mansion in the upscale Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. Tyrese showed his benevolent side when his Range Rover was stolen from the driveway of his Buckhead mansion this week.
