OutKast’s Big Boi is going to save a pretty penny after coming to terms with his estranged wife, Sherlita Patton, following mounting speculation of a full-fledged divorce going down. #StankYouKindly
According to reports, the couple have decided to stick together and ditch permanent breakup plans.
As TMZ first reported … Big Boi’s wife, Sherlita Patton, filed divorce docs last October after 11 years of marriage. She demanded support and full custody. Big Boi responded that she wasn’t getting anything without a fight. But in quiet fashion … the two filed docs earlier this month asking the judge to 86 the divorce … and the judge obliged. The move is not completely out of left field — Big Boi posted a photo of Patton on Mother’s Day with the caption, “Happy Mother’s Day to my queen.” (TMZ)
Details of the happily ever after marriage coming to an end surfaced online back in October.
Big Boi (real name Antwon A. Patton) from Outkast may be facing a child custody battle from his estranged wife after she filed divorce papers in in Fulton County Superior Court yesterday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Sherlita M. Patton said in court documents that their 11 year marriage is “irretrievably broken.” She is also seeking alimony, an equitable division of marital property and attorney’s fees.

Some reports claimed things would likely become messy over a potential custody battle.
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.

Outside of the martial war, Boi addressed rumored OutKast album buzz earlier this year.
“No, we’re just doing the tour only just for the fans,” Boi said in an interview. “That’s all it is, a tour. I got a solo album I’m working on, but it’s just the OutKast 20-year anniversary, just a way for us to celebrate for our fans, but there is no album in the works.” (REVOLT)
