Forest Whitaker files for divorce from wife Keisha Nash after 22 years of marriage


Forest Whitaker has reportedly split from his wife of 22-years Keisha Nash. The Black Panther actor is said to have filed for divorce on Thursday, one year after listing the Hollywood Hills properties they shared. Forest, 57, and actress Keisha, 46, married in 1996 and welcomed two daughters, Sonnet, 22, and True, 20, in the two decades they spent together. Multiple publications shared details of the divorce papers, in which Forest cites ‘irreconcilable differences’ and refuses to pay spousal support.

TMZ suggest the couple may have an overarching property agreement, especially since two of their $6million homes went on the market last September. The couple has been together ever since meeting on the set of 1994 film Blown Away, where they played each other’s love interest.

Despite filing for divorce two days after Christmas, Forest had a positive message about coming together over the festive period.

On Tuesday, he tweeted: ‘Christmas is a celebration of solidarity – a time of the year when we are reminded that the bonds our families, friends, fellow citizens and beyond are based on sharing and bringing joy. #MerryChirstmas to you all! (sic)’
