‘Martin’ actress Tichina Arnold divorcing cheating hubby after 9 years of marriage

Tichina Arnold calling it quits.

SACRAMENTO — Coronavirus, DAMN YOU!!! You can stick a fork in Tichina Arnold’s stormy marriage because it’s done. The “Neighborhood” star and her husband, Sacramento Kings assistant coach DaRico Hines, are calling it quits after nine years of holy matrimony. Tichina, who made a name for herself on the ’90s TV sitcom “Martin,” filed dissolution indentures last week citing irreconcilable differences. The decision to sunder is hardly a surprise. If you recall, the quondam lovebirds got separated in 2016 after Tichina learned Rico made a sex tape with his paramour and didn’t use a condom. He also gave Tichina an STD.

“I had that feeling of, you know, beyond him being my husband, this is supposed to be my friend, my confidant,” Tichina told People Magazine. “Somebody who I can trust. And when you can’t trust the person that you sleep with every night, there’s a problem. I could no longer trust him. I could no longer lay with him. And it doesn’t make him a horrible person. We all make mistakes, but not with me and not on my time and not in my life.”

Tichina and Rico, 43, got hitched in Honolulu, Hawaii. They don’t have any kids together. But the 52-year-old actress asked the judge to occlude alimony. Tichina’s co-star on “Martin,” Tisha Campbell, divorced her husband 3 years ago. So there’s conjugal cessation in the air. Did an age gap hurt Tichina’s marriage?

Is she better off without Rico?

  1. Yet people still believe in marriage. Marrying the wrong person could mess up your life for real

  2. He is Insecure, !! Men can Be jealous of Women he wanted to Hurt her he needed to have a one up on her to appease his insecurities , Stay Away from insecure People they will Always hurt you ….just saying

  3. She need to go get checked for everything and sue him if he gave her a disease yuck 🤮

  4. Nobody cares that he cheated but as soon as the sex tape came out she was in the right to Cut ties with him. Theres a difference between a man using options and blatant sex addiction.

  5. he not only cheated, which is bad enough, but he had unprotected sex with these women? the ultimate in disrespect. he could have got somebody pregnant (if that’s a possibility) and/or brought a STD home to her. tichina ought to know, she does not deserve this. its nothing she’s done. HE AINT ISH!!!!! and your man is waiting for you to get smart, dump this no count man and open the doe for him girl!

  6. She clearly has a type of man, aggressive, tall, and younger than her. Her sexual peak has long been over and that won’t cut it with alpha dudes who wanna smash something with energy and life still in it. It is a reality for old women, they’re all gassed out by 32.

  7. Just like in baseball, 3 strikes and you’re OUT!! The fact that she waited 5 years to go through with a divorce just lets me know that she was trying to hit that 10 year mark so she could get him for 1/2 or she was planning on using this in divorce court.. And is it me or does she look like a female version of Bobby Brown?? I mean brother man is only 43 and his chances of getting something newer, more receptive to him, and less stressful were better for him than if he stayed with her. I mean you truly have to ask yourself, ” What would make a man want to go and cheat on his wife and not give 0 fucks??” I mean ladies, what do you expect a man to do when youre not fulfilling your end of the marriage contract which includes satisfying your husband… And like the lady that was on the podcast with Scarface and Willie D put it so aptly, ” Marriage is just a legal form of prostitution…..”

  8. Why was a 43 year old man married to a 52 year old woman? I’m 38 and still pull women in their mid 20s.

  9. She definitely deserves better! So sad, though I am glad she is going to be free!

  10. She was funny as hell in Martin, but she’s old as fuhh!!! Half to a hundred 🤯🤯🤯damn!!! Brothas need to stop dating these old ass aunties. 🤣🤣🤣

  11. No point in cheating just be single and smash whoever you want.

  12. Remember the episode of Martin when Pam couldn’t find a man and Martin said “Pam has a bad attitude and a nasty mouth and somebody should tell her” She played that role for a reason. 🤣

  13. @John Doe: Stop lying, she is not fine now but look old and used up. smh When a bm cheats on his woman, it is normally because of what he is not getting at home i.e. peace, love, and/or sex. What she wouldn’t do for her husband, another woman will do for him.

  14. I always thought she was finer then Gina. That’s why Martin use to mess wit’ her all the time. He knew he f*cked up. He already chosed that wide mouth thing wit’ the forehead on her. Then Tommy seen that rump and moved in in quick. I had stopped watchin’ that show for like three weeks I was so jealous of Tommy’s punk ass.

  15. I thought Tichina was already divorced. So this whole time she was only separated? Why didn’t she file when she found the sex tape on his phone? Who is separated for six years? I mean 20 women

  16. run girl run hes not worth your time the level of disrespect that has manifested from his infidelties run run and don’t look back

  17. I am happy that she’s wise enough not to try and hang in there with a man who never deserved her in the first place.
    She will be fine.

  18. I still don’t understand how women think they can control a man with sex!?? Men have options!!? That shit don’t work anymore!

  19. The man looks older than his age. Let’s be honest. The age Gap isn’t even obvious. They have both fallen out of love. It happens

  20. A lot of times men won’t break up with women when they are unhappy. Instead, the man will just act a fool until the women breaks things off. She can do better. It breaks my heart to see so many beautiful, talented black women without the love we deserve.

  21. Divorcing was the right move. Now she’s free to smash someone more good looking lol

  22. She will be fine she is better than him anyway make sure you ain’t got no diseases and keep it moving I loved her from back in the days you are beautiful in every way inside and out HE Ain’t Shit

  23. Well, if you make a sex tape, it’s going to get leaked. He don’t deserve her money he cheated, not her. She should get damages for him making that tape, a ruining her reputation.

  24. I am not waiting for years to divorce someone, once I separate the divorce coming within 90 days

  25. I hope she had a pre nuptial agreement . it’s something that you need to have 🎵

  26. I tell young women 50 and under to send me their grandmother (or great grandmother) I’m 68y/o and I would rather have drama from a woman my age than some young woman. Plus I have met some hot-ass women, my age group who still put it down and have through the years, learned skills (sexual, social, and emotional restraints ) that are lost on a lot of younger women

  27. Well she had a biblical right to move on. It was a violation of one of the ten commandments.

  28. 10 years of marriage is the magical number in Cali for a spouse to get divorced (or getting close to 10 years of marriage), it’s almost guaranteed the payee spouse will receive half of the payor spouse’s assets and the payor spouses retirement for the rest of the payee spouse’s life; she is playing chess not checkers

  29. Men need to go back to old school values where cheating is unacceptable they would leave before that. They wouldn’t hit a woman they would leave before it escalated to that. When you don’t have a personal standard then you will always find a “reason”. Heck, to those who worship him even the “Godfather “ says he doesn’t cheat. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Men get tired of their wives but they have to have a personal standard.

  30. Lord, I am exhausted. I am exhausted for the women that has endured this. I feel like I am done with trying have hopes for a man with no hopes. They don’t think, they feel, they don’t care. We, as women, do the most and it get us no where. No matter how beautiful we look, how smart we are, how much money we make, how many kids we bare, how much sex we give it’s never enough to keep them. For the life of me, I’ll never understand. So what can we, as women, do? Don’t get me wrong, I love them to death but I can’t make a grown man do nothing. So I’m gonna live my life the way God wanted me to live. Forgive me for trying to do it myself. It’s well past time these so called men has to grow the hell up……. mentally.

  31. I don’t know why you would give anyone a second chance to play with you/your health like that. Most people cheating aren’t using protection. If they don’t care about cheating, they don’t care about using protection

  32. Black women always settling for these dusty men, I would rather be single with my ever ready reliable toy
