Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Eva Marcille Files for Divorce from Michael Sterling
Apparently, she does not want to be a “Real Housewife” anymore!
The couple, who have been married since October 2018, filed the necessary legal documents at the Superior Court of Fulton County last week on Thursday. The papers were filed on March 23 with Marcille citing that she and the attorney are “currently living in a bona fide state of separation.”
“This has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, but sometimes life takes your journey in a direction you were not expecting,” Marcille told People in an exclusive statement to the media outlet exclusively. “Our children remain our biggest priority and the eight and half years we have spent together will always be cherished. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.”
She filed the divorce paper and stated that their marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
The separated couple have three children that they share together: 4-year-old Michael Sterling, Jr., and Maverick Sterling, 3. They were also parenting Marcille’s daughter Marley Rae, who she had with a previous partner, Kevin McCall.
In her lawsuit, she is requesting that the court award her “equitable division” of the couple’s assets that they both acquired during the course of their marriage, as well as her own separate property. Whatever debt the pair have she wants that to be “equitably divided” too.
USA Today has reported that Marcille has stated that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” with Sterling, and there are “no prospects for a reconciliation.” She also wants primary physical custody of her children with Sterling while having “final decision-making authority” on “a temporary and permanent basis.”
There is a child support request as well as Sterling making contributions to the children’s medical expenses.
Marcille and Sterling, who is a trial lawyer, have both starred on the Bravo reality series The Real Housewives of Atlanta from 2018 to 2021.
