Faith Evans is divorcing her husband Todd Russaw. The singer and record company exec married in 1997, but separated in 2005. She has cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for filing for divorce.
They have two children together, Joshua, 13, and Ryder, 4, who was born after the couple officially separated. She asked for sole physical custody of the kids, but joint legal custody in the papers.
Evans asked for Russaw to get written permission to take the children out of California.
In January 2004, the couple was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine and an improper tag violation during a traffic stop outside of Atlanta. They agreed to enroll in a 13-week drug rehabilitation program. SOURCE
