ENIKO AND KEVIN HART
Comedian/Actor Kevin Darnell Hart (41) and Actress/Model Eniko Parrish (36) started dating in 2009. Their relationship actually started while he was still married to his first wife, Torrei Hart. Ultimately, his marriage to Torrei ended in divorce in 2011, and he proposed to Eniko in 2014.

Singer/Songwriter/Actress Letoya Nicole Luckett-Walker (40) and Entrepreneur Tommicus Julius Walker (40) announced their engagement in August of 2017. Villa Antonia in Austin, Texas was the location they chose for their “I Do’s”.
Married December 10, 2017, Letoya is absolutely one of the most beautiful brides to walk down the aise. Not only was she drop-dead gorgeous, but the dress she changed into for her reception was just as beautiful as her wedding dress…if not more so. The jury is still out on who was the star of this show…the bride or her dress!
From this union, Letoya and Tommicus share daughter 2-year old Gianna Iman and son Tysun Wolf, 8 months.
After 3 years of marriage, Letoya and Tommicus announced their pending divorce earlier this year. However, don’t count these two out just yet. Is there still a flicker of hope for this couple? Tommicus appears to be having second thoughts, recently posting a simple message on his social media Instagram account, “Need my Wife Back”. But is Letoya reaching back?…not so much.
RAY J AND PRINCESS LOVE
Singer/Actor/Television Personality William Ray Norwood, Jr. aka Ray J (40) and Model/Fashion Designer/Reality Star Princess Pilipina Love (36) exchanged vows at the Cathedral of Saint Vibiana in Los Angeles, California.
Married August 2016, Princess Love is very beautiful, and she looked every part of the Princess on her special day. However, the groom may have upstaged her. Ray J looks like royalty in these photos. Is it possible the groom can look more regal than the bride?
From this union Ray J and Princess share 2 children, daughter Melody Love who is 3, and 1-year-old son Epik Ray.
Is it splitsville for these two? After several highly publicized breakups, Princess filed for divorce in 2020. However, the divorce was called off twice. Only time will tell if they decide to keep it together.
