THE ACTRESS IS BREAKING HER SILENCE
Tisha Campbell-Martin and her estranged husband Duane Martin were involved in some of the best African American entertainment in the 90s. Between the two of them, they’ve been in a number of classics such as Martin, House Party, Above The Rim, White Men Can’t Jump, and many more. There is nothing entertaining about their ongoing bitter divorce though. As we reported, Will and Jada Smith have been dragged into the drama. The power couple loaned Duane more than $1 million, which he has been accused of hiding under a company named Roxe LLC that he used to do some sketchy business. Now, the drama intensifies as TMZ reports that Tisha has filed a restraining order against Duane.
According to the media site, Tisha stated, “I can no longer live in fear of retaliation … the need [to] press criminal charges for his acts overshadows the embarrassment of making his crimes against me public through this report.” A judge has granted her a temporary restraining order, which instructs Duane to stay 100 yards away from her at all times. Tisha claims physical, emotional, and mental abuse began when she married Duane in 1996. She claims he berated her for not being able to get roles in movies, blaming her weight for the lack of work.
