OutKast’s Big Boi has come forward to confirm recent reports about his divorce from wife Sherlita Patton is off and dished on what ultimately helped keep them together. #MySavior
Rather than focus on money or happiness, Boi credited religion for playing a big part in their marriage continuing.
Big Boi is crediting a carpenter for saving his marriage … but not just any carpenter. Our photog got Big Boi at LAX and congratulated him on reuniting with his wife, Sherlita. The two filed for divorce last year … but withdrew their legal docs earlier this month. The rapper tells us … Jesus brought him and his wife back together … and he has some advice for other couples in troubled waters. (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)
