SWV’s Coko Announces Divorce After 15 Years of Marriage

SWV group member, Coko, and her husband, musician, Mike Clemmons, have reportedly decided to call it quits after 15 years of marriage.

Essence reports that the 47-year-old singer took to her personal website, Hot Coko, to make the announcement.

“We always thought we’d be together forever! Through the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups and the downs…we’d still be married,” the singer wrote. “But, things don’t always work out the way we plan or hope. After 15 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to call it quits.  Our fairytale has come to an end.  I’ll definitely miss him!  But life goes on and I have to make the best of it.”

Damn.

The couple first met in 1995 when Clemmons worked as a drummer for SWV. While their relationship was professional at the time, the two made it official and got married in 2003.

“I wish him all the best in his future.  I pray that he will lack nothing!  For the sake of our son, we will do our best to co-parent,” Coko added.  “We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love. Life after divorce kind of scares me, but I have to be strong for myself and my son.  God got me and I’m surrounded by a great group of family and friends that hold me down.  My Village!!  I am blessed and highly favored!!”
