*ATLANTA—Grammy winning artist Le’Andria Johnson has finally settled her long divorce battle with now ex-husband, Michael Underwood.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Ural Glanville signed the order this week and granted Johnson’s wishes for a divorce.
Attorney James L. Walker, Jr. of the Atlanta-based firm, Walker & Associates represented Ms. Johnson.
“We are pleased with the decision from the court and Le’Andria is ready to move forward with her life,” said Walker (@jameswalkerjresq). “This has been a very challenging time for her and we want to thank her family and millions of fans for their undying support.”
Despite Underwood’s claims on social media that he was concerned about his son, Attorney Walker attempted to arrange a visitation schedule that got rejected by the father.
“It is very disappointing for me as a father of 4, when a man goes on social media for nearly two years and blasts our client, who is a wonderful mother, but, expresses no real interest in seeing his child. It appeared to me that Mr. Underwood was more focused on demanding money and assets from the union then knowing his son….and he didn’t get a dime!” No assets were awarded to Underwood and the court awarded full custody of their son to Ms. Johnson.
“I want to thank Attorney James Walker for helping me close this chapter of my life. I am also thankful for everyone who supported and prayed for me through this entire ordeal. I want to focus on raising my children, spending time with my family and continuing to allow God to use me to make great music,” Johnson (@leandriaj) added, refusing to make any statements about the father of her lovely son.
Johnson has the current hit song “Hold On” available on all platforms
