Meagan Good And DeVon Franklin Announce Their Divorce After 9 Years Of Marriage
Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin have announced their divorce after nine years of marriage. The news was confirmed by People, who has a statement from the couple about their split.
“After much prayer & consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected”. The two said in their statement. “We celebrate almost a decade of marriage together and a love that is eternal. There’s no one at fault, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love.”
“We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife,” they continued. “We are also extremely thankful to God; for the testimony being created inside us both & for blessing our lives with each other.”
The divorce comes as a surprise since the couple has been open about sharing their marriage with their fans. Including writing a book in 2015, ‘The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love.’
The couple also posted anniversary tributes to each other six months prior to their divorce announcement. People also reports that Franklin posted a celebratory post about Good’s role on Harlem Dec. 2, writing, “She’s one of the most talented actors on the planet AND she’s funnier than you may know[.]”
Along with Harlem, which is currently streaming on Amazon, Good can be seen next in DC film Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Franklin, an avid producer of faith-based & family content; is currently producing Masters of the Universe, Kingston Business & the biopic of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos creator Richard Montanez, Flamin’ Hot. Franklin is also producing a film based on pastor Michael Todd’s book; Relationship Goals: How to Win at Dating, Marriage and Sex, as well as a biopic on gospel star Kirk Franklin.
Earlier this month, Devon promoted Good’s new series, ‘Harlem,’ which premiered on December 3. Interestingly, he wasn’t at the premiere event in New York City but supported his ex-wife on Instagram saying, “so proud of my love!”
“I’m so proud of my love [Meagan Good!] She’s one of the most talented actors on the planet AND she’s funnier than you may know but I’m so glad you finally get a chance to see her do it all as Camille Parks in the new Amazon show,” he wrote.
Interestingly, Franklin is asking the court to “terminate” its ability to award either of them spousal support — which normally indicates there was a prenuptial agreement. The couple didn’t share any children, so child support isn’t an issue in this case. In 2019, the actress shared a video of the couple in the family’s entertainment office, saying she was “getting ready for babies,” but the couple never had kids.
