This was unexpected.

Tisha Campbell-Martin, best known for playing Gina on the sitcom Martin, has announced that she’s splitting from her husband on 27 years.

According to TMZ Tisha filed the documents on Thursday to part ways with her husband Duane Martin. The pair have been married since Martin was still on the air, tying the knot in 1996, and they have two sons named Ezekiel and Xen.

Campbell-Martin released a statement to the gossip website about the news, asking for privacy during the ordeal.

“After 27 years of being together and two amazing children, it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce. It’s an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family,” she said.
