Comedian Gary Owens, a White comedian who often his interracial marriage as the crux of his stand-up routines, is getting divorced, MTO News has learned.
Gary built his brand off of his quips about being a White man immersed in Black culture. He made headlines on Friday (March 19) after his wife of 18 years, Kenya Duke, filed for divorce.
The couple married back in 2003 and share two sons and one daughter who reportedly are adults because the court documents show that they don’t have children that are minors. The outlet didn’t share the cause of the split and neither party has issued a statement about the news of their personal matters being shared publicly.
Last year, just ahead of the pandemic, Kenya shared a photo of herself with her husband along with a loving message about their bond. “This is what it looks to give ZERO f**ks about what people say. We are out here living our best life, laughing and loving.” Check out a few more family photos below.
Kenya and Gary’s split is amicable for now, and social media has already begun speculating why they could be divorcing. Right now Twitter is speculating that Gary may have cheated on his wife with a White woman.
