REAL Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille has filed for divorce from her husband Michael Sterling after tying the knot in 2018.
The Bravo star and her husband welcomed their third child in 2019 and have been documenting their relationship on TV, showing no real signs of trouble.
TMZ broke the news that Eva, 38, filed for divorce from her husband Michael.
According to the outlet, the former America’s Next Top Model star filed the paperwork on Tuesday in Georgia.
She asked the judge to end her marriage and stated that they have been separated.
Eva did not give a reason for the divorce but did say that the marriage is irreparably broken with no chance of reconciliation.
What’s more, the TV personality requested that she be granted legal and primary physical custody of the three young children she and Michael share.
TMZ reported that Eva suggested to the judge that she should be the parent with the final say on all decisions related to the kids.
She claimed in the filing that she is a fit and proper caregiver.
Along with her custody demands, Eva is seeking child support from Michael.
The RHOA star wrote in her filing that her estranged husband should contribute to their kids’ medical, dental, and hospitalization expenses.
In terms of assets, the model is seeking to split their shared goods down the middle along with any debts they’ve racked up throughout the course of their relationship.
Eva stepped away from RHOA in 2020, shocking fans.
She was introduced to the show as a friend in season 10 and bumped up to the main cast in seasons 11 and 12.
After three seasons, she unexpectedly decided to take a step back.
In a statement to The U.S. Sun, Eva said: “I appreciate the bond of friendship that I have made with several of my cast mates, and the strong personal relationships I have cultivated with numerous executives and producers from Bravo and Truly Original.”
She went on: “I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided.
“However, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities.
“I look forward to serving my community on the Rickey Smiley Morning show and finding ways to be a voice during this transformational time in our country for people of color.”
Shortly before the news broke that America’s Next Top Model winner Eva would not be returning for season 13 of RHOA, the reality star shared a quote on Instagram Stories that alluded to her departure.
“You’re about to be happier than you’ve ever been,” she reposted on Tuesday morning, just an hour before sharing an announcement from the Rickey Smiley show, on which she serves as a radio personality, about her quitting RHOA.
