'SNL' Star Kenan Thompson Files Divorce Papers To Legally Separate From His Wife Of 11 Years

The 'SNL' star reportedly filed the paperwork last month.

Kenan Thompson has reportedly filed divorce papers to legally separate from Christina Evangeline. According to TMZ, the Saturday Night Live (SNL) star filed the paperwork last month in New York.

The new development comes almost two months after TMZ broke the news that the pair decided to end their romantic relationship after 11 years of marriage. Sources told the media outlet that although the former couple has decided to go their separate ways, they remain friends. The pair also agreed to co-parent their daughters, Georgia and Gianna.

Sources told TMZ, “Kenan and Christina agreed to share 50/50 custody-- and they are still living close to one another in NYC to make the custody arrangement easier for everyone involved, especially the kids.”

We are relieved to hear that the separation has been amicable. Join us in wishing both parties and their children all the best.

FYI: In 2011, Kenan and Christina tied the knot during a private ceremony at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
