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.

Reggie Bush and his wife Lilit Avagyan shared photos of their adorable sons, Uriah, 6, and Agyemang, 4, wearing their Outkast "school swag".

The boys wore hoodies with a print of the rap duo on the front.

Reggie captioned the images: "Todays school swag featuring @outkast [sic]."

The former NFL star, best known for dating socialite Kim Kardashian, married Lilit in 2014. In addition to their sons, they share a daughter, Briseis, 8.

After retiring from the NFL, Reggie took a gig as an on-air college football analyst for Fox Sports.

The 36-year-old sports analyst is still in great shape, don't you think?

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.

Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix

A video clip of the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side, featuring Outkast member Andre 3000 Benjamin was released online yesterday. The film will focus on Jimi's life while he was still living in New York. No U.S. release date has been set yet.

A left-handed guitarist, Jimi taught himself to play a right handed Fender Stratocaster guitar -- upside down.

Born in Seattle, Washington in 1942, Jimi moved to England when he was 24. A year later, Jimi's legend was born when he played the Monterey Pop Festival in the U.S. At the end of his set he lit his guitar on fire onstage.

Like most falling stars, Jimi died of a drug overdose in a London flat in 1970.

Watch the clip after the break.

Many Obama supporters (read: blacks) were shocked at the news that superstar rapper Big Boi, of multi-platinum rap group Outkast, did not vote for President Obama in the November elections.

“I voted for Gary Johnson,” the Grammy-award winning rapper told Alyona Minkovski on Huffpost Live Friday. Patton recounted how he had to set a woman straight who thought he voted his skin color instead of his conscience.

R&B singer Kelly Rowland is in high demand for album features and music video appearances since Beyonce fell off. That's probably why Beyonce spends her days posting random photos of herself online. This video is the first single off Big Boi's Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors album. By the way, rumor has it that Big Boi and his Outkast partner Andre 3000 have fallen out.

From Atlanta.MetroMix.com:

Twenty years is a milestone by just about every standard. But 20 years for a club is like a lunar eclipse or Haley’s Comet striking. Still, that’s exactly how long The Masquerade has been around. And what better way to celebrate than to join forces with another Atlanta institution.

If you're not from Atlanta, then you may have missed the news about the Goodie Mob reunion concert. Just let this serve as your notice. In fact, Sept. 19 just might be accompanied by a city proclamation. That’s how much of an Atlanta treasure the Goodie Mob is.

While the Goodie Mob guys may have had their disagreements, demonstrated by the fact that all four of them haven’t recorded an album together since "World Party" dropped in 1999, they are brothers from another mother and it was only a matter of time that they found their way back home in an official capacity. Although official word of a breakup, which they don’t really use now to describe their time apart, came in 2002, the group reunited for an appearance at a Gnarls Barkley Atlanta concert in 2006. Last year, at the free Nelly show at The Tabernacle, fans got an unexpected surprise when Goodie Mob hit the stage. On Sept. 19, there’s more than a taste in store. It’s a full-out Goodie Mob concert. Read more...
