Divorce has taken place between Big Boi and his wife, Sherlita Patton after their marriage was unable to be saved. The divorce was finalized in May 2022, one month after the rapper initially filed for it, according to the court documents that TMZ obtained. In addition, the records declare that there is no possibility of reaching reconciliation and that both sides have agreed to refrain from making future threats of violence. The couple signed a paper in 2016 that divided their assets equally but concealed their current financial status.
Who is Sherlita Patton, Big Boi’s wife?
Sherlita Patton is not just well known for being the successful businesswoman who is married to Big Boi, but she has also received notice in her own right. After receiving her degree in real estate from Clark University on March 22, 1972, she entered the real estate industry. She has previously worked with reputable companies, such as Remax and Coldwell Banker. At the moment, she works as a real estate agent for Atlanta Intown Real Estate Services. Patton’s name is well-known in the industry as a result of the fact that she co-owns the P Valentine Boutique with her good friend Tracy Valentina. The clothing assortment at this Edgewood establishment was suitable for customers of both sexes. The individual, who is now 50 years old, is believed to have a net worth of $50 million. Her entrepreneurial endeavours and her career as a real estate agent provide most of her income, which she uses to support herself.
Personal life of Big Boi and Sherlita Patton’
Beginning in March of 2002, Big Boi and Sherlita Patton were a married couple for approximately twenty years. It is not clear where they initially connected. Jordan in 1995 and Cross in 2001 are the couple’s children’s names, and they were born to them. Antwan Andre “Bamboo” Patton II, Boi’s kid from a prior relationship, now considers Patton his stepmother. Antwan, who turned 18 in 2018, completed his high school education in 2018 and is now continuing his study in New York City.
In 2013, when Patton filed for divorce from her spouse, he indicated that the marriage had been irreparably broken down at the time of the filing. Patton’s initial plan was to pursue exclusive custody of one of her sons, but she ultimately decided to apologise to Boi and share custody of the child. Even though Boi was eager to continue paying child support, he decided to contest Patton’s divorce instead.
In 1992, Boi and Andre Lauren Benjamin first began performing together under the name Outkast. After joining LaFace Records, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below was released in 2003. His debut album was Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, and then he released Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors in 2012. Hitco Music, which Los Angeles Reid and Charles Goldstruck established, became his record label in 2018, and the company gave him a recording contract.
