Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin, her husband of nine years, have released a joint statement announcing their divorce.
“After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected,” the joint statement reads. “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.”
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the case was opened on Dec. 20, at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles, California.
Forty-three-year-old Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin, 43, co-wrote the New York Times best-seller “The Wait” with Meagan Good and also produced the popular Christian films “Miracles from Heaven” and “Heaven Is For Real,” “Masters of the Universe,” “Kingdom Business” and “Flamin‘ Hot.”
Meagan Good, 40, who is known for her roles in several popular movies and television shows, is currently making headlines for her portrayal as Dr. Camille Parks in the Amazon Prime series, “Harlem.”
The split between the pair is amicable.
“We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife. We are also extremely thankful to God for the testimony being created inside us both and for blessing our lives with each other.”
Last year, Good revealed that she had been ready to start having children before the pandemic hit.
“I was thinking that I’d finish the show [“Harlem”] that I started back in January of last year and then that we would probably do it this year around this time and then the pandemic happened and, going back to the show, we still have like seven episodes left,” she explained. “So it’s like we’re looking at next year. ‘Shazam 2′ looks like it’s going to go in the middle of next year, so I think we’re looking at end of next year, but you know, I’m ’bout ready. It’s taken me a long time to get here.”
