The Lawrences' representative said at the time of their parting ways: ''Martin and Shamicka Lawrence have decided to divorce. The couple has made the joint decision to part ways.''

They released a joint statement, saying: ''Out of love and respect for one another, we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together.''

The screen star recently completed a nationwide sold-out comedy tour and a comedy pilot for the CBS network.
