SWV’s Coko Clemons and her husband, Mike Clemons, are ending their 15-year marriage.
The 47-year-old R&B singer announced the split on her website, HotCocoa.com.
“We always thought we’d be together forever! 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,” she wrote.
“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!!”
Michael Clemons, 41, is a music producer and was a drummer who played for Usher, Mary J. Blige, and other big-name artists including SWV. He married the group’s lead singer in 2003. They share one son, Jalen and Coko has another son, Jazz, from a previous relationship.
No word on what caused the split beyond Coko’s “fell out of love” explanation. Fans got a bit of an inside look at the couple’s relationship on two seasons of the WeTv series, SWV: Reunited, before it was cancelled in 2015.
