Faith Evans Pulls Trigger on Marriage

5/20/2011 4:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Faith Evans has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned ... but it was a long time coming.


Faith -- who is married to record company exec Todd Russaw -- filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.  Todd is also Faith's manager.

The couple married in 1997 and has two minor children.  But according to the divorce petition, the couple separated in December, 2005.  The 2005 date is curious, because one of their children was born in 2007.

Faith is asking for joint legal and sole physical custody.  She wants Todd to have visitation rights.

Faith also wants the judge to reject any claim of spousal support.

Faith was married to Biggie Smalls when he was shot and killed in 1997.

No spousal support sole custody
to her visitation to her one child born
two years after they broke up ? an agreement
for him to be a father to the younger one who if they were truly
separated isn't his?? not that i think it would be a bad agreement if true kids do better with two active parents even if their not together just wondering dont even know who they are
only reason i stopped to read this is the bright orange faces

Please change the title of this article. The use of the word "trigger" in inappropriate. Thanks.

@ the people belly aching about racist comments - nobody seems to be saying "who cares" towards that tasty picture Shemar. That's the KINDS of note-worthy celebs people want to see here.... color is irrelevant!

Title is very racist and insensitive. It implies that she's had some association(s) with a gun or violence-- and she HASN'T. TRIGGER? If the headline refers to the death of her late husband than it is HIGHLY insensitive. You guys dropped the ball on this one.

TMZ is for white people. Everytime there is someone black on here you white people never know who they are. (In my dorky white voice): "Who is Faith Evans? Who is Bizzy Bone?" And who in the world spells Biggie "Big E"? Only a white person! I hate this site and it's very VERY rare that I'm on here. Never again. I'm going over to MTO.....DEUCES!!

If I remember correctly, Faith was pregnant with their son when Biggie was killed. They were already separated, though.

I love how these fools are making sideways remarks like they don't care about black people. For the record, Faith is half white so you should be embracing her, no? I don't care what color she is; she can SING.

Why do people always have to make it about color? Racism is for bitches.

He cheated on her throughout their entire relationship and when they separated a yr before his death, she moved on.
