The relationship between Outkast member Big Boi and his estranged wife, Sherlita Patton, has ended.

TMZ obtained court documents that indicate the Outkast’s Big Boi and the real estate entrepreneur’s divorce was finalized after 20 years of marriage.

A final divorce order came last month after Outkast filed for divorce in April. As stated in his filing, Big Boi asserted that the pair was separated and had begun living separately. There was no hope of reconciliation between them. Keeping things peaceful and avoiding mudslinging helped them reach a speedy settlement.

Bamboo and Jordan are the names of their two children. In another relationship, Boi has a child named Cross. Furthermore, they are both grandparents. The couple’s son Bamboo welcomed a son named Antwan Younes Patton III (Big Boi’s real name is Antwan Patton) in 2021. His children have always made a significant impression on him as an artist.

“I can tell you this when we did ‘Bombs Over Baghdad,’ my little boy went crazy and started breakdancing. I called [Andre 3000] and said, ‘Boy, we got to put this out. This is the one.’ And it was.” Big Boi said.

Sherlita and Outkast Member Filed for Divorce for the First Time?

It may appear that the couple is going through a divorce for the first time. However, this is not the first time the couple has filed for divorce. Sherlita attempted to terminate their marriage in 2013, but the couple reconciled. However, they chose to proceed with the divorce this time.

Big Boi and Sherlita concluded a private postnuptial agreement to divide their assets and debts three years later.

The parties have agreed not to disclose their respective financial information and to reach an agreement that will resolve all outstanding debts. Furthermore, both parties agreed to refrain from threatening each other during the divorce proceedings. The threats include “injury, maltreating, molesting, harassing, harming, or abusing.” Patton and Big Boi have not addressed their divorce publicly.
