Twenty-two years and two kids later, and Forest Whitaker is calling it quits. The Black Panther actor filed for divorce from his wife, Keisha Nash Whitaker on Thursday.
“Irreconcilable Differences” is the reason for the marriage dissolution, according to a representative from Forest’s camp. It was just a few days ago that the celebrity father left a beautiful message on Twitter in honor of Christmas. “Christmas is a celebration of solidarity,” Whitaker tweeted. “[It is] 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!”
