“Black-ish” Creator Kenya Barris Files for Divorce from Wife Rainbow After 20 Years of Marriage

Kenya Barris is ending his marriage to his estranged wife, Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris, after being together for more than 20 years, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The black-ish creator filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court on June 1, citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to a court document obtained by PEOPLE.

The legal paperwork also noted the pair, who share six children, including four minors — Lola, 16, Beau, 14, Kass, 12, and Bronx, 5 — have been separated since September 2020. In addition to requesting joint and legal custody of their kids, Kenya also indicated that spousal support will be paid to his ex, per the document.

This isn’t the first time couple has moved to legally sever their marriage — Rania, 47, first filed for divorce in 2014 but withdrew her request less than a year later, after the duo reconciled, per the Associated Press.

The outlet also reported Kenya, 47, filed for divorce in 2019 before later calling it off.
