SWV’s Coko Clemons and her husband, Mike Clemons, are ending their 15-year marriage.
Coko, 47, announced her divorce on her personal blog Hotcoko.com on Sunday.
“We always thought we’d be together forever!” She wrote in a post titled “After the Love Is Gone“.
“Through the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups and the downs…we’d still be married. But, things don’t always work out the way we plan or hope. After 15 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to call it quits. Our fairytale has come to an end. I’ll definitely miss him! But life goes on and I have to make the best of it.
I wish him all the best in his future. I pray that he will lack nothing! For the sake of our son we will do our best to co-parent. We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love.”
The couple met in 1995 when Clemmons worked as a drummer for the hit-making 90s trio, and while their relationship was professional at the time, they later wed in 2003. During their marriage, the couple welcomed a son, Jalen, and Coko admits that she wants nothing more than to co-parent successfully now that they’re calling it quits. She also says she hopes to remain strong in her faith during this time.
Coko added, “I wish him all the best in his future. I pray that he will lack nothing! For the sake of our son, we will do our best to co-parent. We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love. Life after divorce kind of scares me, but I have to be strong for myself and my son. God got me and I’m surrounded by a great group of family and friends that hold me down. My Village!! I am blessed and highly favored!!”
