*It was a year ago that Alana Mayo and Lena Waithe secretly tied the knot. Now Mayo is divorcing Waithe.

Mayo filed a petition for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this week, per court records via The Blast.

Apparently something went wrong very quickly  because  after only two months of marriage the pair revealed they had separated.

“After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways,” read a joint statement from Waithe, 36, and Mayo’s reps to E! News. “We have nothing but support for one another and ask that you respect our privacy during this time.”

Last November, Waithe said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she and Mayo got married at the courthouse in San Francisco, where they wed in front of a bust of the late Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay elected officials in the US.

“We snuck and did it, you know,” she said. “We didn’t really make any announcements or a big … you know.”

*Taraji P. Henson called it quits from fiancé Kelvin Hayden last month and now she’s opening up about how she’s coping with single life. 

“I am much better, let’s put it that way,” Henson told Entertainment Tonight

Henson confirmed her split from the former NFL star during an appearance on The Breakfast Club radio show in October. They broke up nearly two years after Hayden proposed.

“I haven’t said it yet but it didn’t work out,” Henson said at the time of her romance with Hayden, 37. “I tried, I said, ‘let’s do the therapy thing’ but if you’re both not on the same page with that, then you feel like you’re taking it on yourself and that’s not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship.”

While Henson has not disclosed the reason behind the breakup, word on the street is that she grew tired of all the threesomes that Hayden wanted (allegedly).

“My happiness is not his responsibility and his is not mine. We have to first learn how to make ourselves happy, to make each other happy. So when one person is taking on the weight of the entire relationship, it’s never going to work,” she added. “You have to show up, yes you want to be understanding but you can’t lose yourself in that understanding. You have to still stand up for yourself and be there for yourself but it’s hard to do if the other person isn’t doing that either.”

Henson tells ET that celebrating her 50th birthday in September prompted her to change her outlook.

“I felt myself slipping and so I was like, ‘You know what I am not going to do is let 50 happen to me,” Henson said. “I am going to get control of this mentally and not be like, ‘You are getting old, don’t nobody care, you ain’t working,’ Well, duh, no one is working, it is COVID. So I felt that coming.”

Henson’s advice to others who may be having a tough go at life at time moment: “So anybody out there, that might be going through this darkness, literally, working out, it really works.”

*Dr. Dre has reportedly threatened to summon wedding guests to testify in his divorce battle with Nicole Young

The move is in effort to prove Young wasn’t “coerced” into signing a prenup when they tied the knot in 1996, according to the Daily Mail.

We previously reported, Young claims she was pressured into signing a prenuptial agreement prior to their wedding but that Dre tore it up after their marriage “in a romantic gesture of love for her,” per Daily Mail. 

In court documents obtained by the publication, the music mogul said he would like his estranged wife to “identify by name and most current known address and telephone numbers of all persons who attended” their intimate wedding ceremony. Dre’s attorney Laura Wasser has suggested that the guests are “potential witnesses regarding [Young’s] claim of duress.”

Young, 50, filed for divorce over the summer after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married on May 25, 1996 and share two adult children.

In his response to the divorce filing, Dre noted that the couple have a prenuptial agreement that he wants enforced. The hip-hop mogul reportedly has no issue paying spousal support, but any distribution of property should be controlled by the prenup.

Young reportedly filed documents contesting the prenuptial agreement. 

“I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner. Given the extraordinary pressure and intimidation by Andre, I was left with no option but to hire a lawyer (of course, with the help of Andre’s team of professionals) and unwillingly signed the agreement very shortly before our marriage,” Young alleges in legal documents filed to the court, per TMZ. 

She claims they mutually decided to void the agreement two years later. 

“Andre acknowledged to me that he felt ashamed he had pressured me into signing a premarital agreement and he tore up multiple copies of the agreement in front of me,” Young claims in the  filing. “Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void.”

Young is challenging Dre’s claim that he tore it up 22 years ago, but the hip-hop icon denies ever trashing the agreement.
