It's always bad when a very public marriage ends but it's even worse when al of the gory details start spilling. The divorce between Tisha Campbell-Martin and Duane Martin has been long and drawn out with plenty of allegations being thrown around. Tisha had previously stated that Duane was hiding assets and that he owned $750k worth of shirts!
The newest allegations are more serious and hard to swallow. It's true that those on the outside of a relationship can never know all the details therein but none of us saw this coming.
Campbell-Martin has decided that she can "no longer live under the fear of retaliation" and has gone public with claims, and some proof, that Duane allegedly abused her.
Check out these details courtesy of The Blast.
"Tisha filed on January 24 for a domestic violence restraining order against Martin, claiming he has been physically abusive in their relationship for years.
The actress says the most recent abuse happened this past December, when he allegedly “grabbed me by my arm to try to get me in the bedroom,” after claiming their son was sick.
In an affidavit, Tisha says the physical abuse began months after their wedding in 1996, claiming, “I had been emotionally, mentally and physically abused. I kept things hidden from my family his family our friends and the public, save a few very close friends and people who may have witnessed, over the past two decades, filing it away in the back of my mind to protect my family, the community and the pubIic’s persona of my spouse.”
Tisha also claims that Duane got aggressive with her last year at a bankruptcy meeting last year. She also claims that he's gon on a personal mud slinging campaign against her trying to discredit her claims and ruin her character. The mom and actress says that he's telling people she's an alcoholic, depressed and suffering from a hormone imbalance because she's going through menopause.
