Big Boi’s Wife, Sherlita Patton, Files for Divorce

Sherlita Patton

The Atlanta Journal-Constition reports the wife of Outkast rap star Big Boi, filed for divorce on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

According to court documents obtained by the AJC, Antwon A. Patton married Sherlita M. Patton in February 2002, and the two are currently separated.

Straightfromthea.com reports Sherlita has retained Usher Raymond’s divorce lawyer.

This is the second (or third) separation for the couple, who had marriage problems in the past due to Big Boi’s alleged infidelities.

But friends say Sherlita stayed with her husband for the sake of their two children, son Cross and daughter Jordan.

It was confirmed years ago that Big Boi fathered a son, Bamboo, with another woman.

The divorce complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, claims that the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” and is seeking alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees.

Antwon and Sherlita Patton have two children — ages 18 and 12 — and Sherlita Patton is asking for sole custody of the younger child and corresponding child support, according to the filing.

Friends believe Sherlita delayed filing divorce papers for the sake of her children. But now that the kids are grown, she is moving on with her life.
