Outkast’s Big Boi is divorced from Sherlita Patton, officially bringing their 20 years of marriage to a close.
Legal documents obtained by TMZ show the court entered the final divorce decree last month, making this a pretty quick dissolution. Big Boi just filed for the divorce in April.
In his filing, he said there was “no reasonable hope of reconciliation” between Sherlita and him — noting they’d already separated and were living apart.
The two agreed to a postnuptial agreement in 2016, in which they divided up their assets and debts, and more recently agreed to a confidential settlement to tie up any loose ends. The exes also agreed to keep details of their finances private.
Both parties are looking to avoid any mud-slinging — as part of the divorce, they agreed neither would make threats of “injury, maltreating, molesting, harassing, harming, or abusing” in any way shape or form.
Translation: Let’s keep this above the waist and amicable.
We talked to Big Boi in 2014, soon after the divorce was called off — a move for which he gave God all the credit, and even had some advice for other couples in troubled waters.
