Scott Dudelson/Getty ImagesSWV singer Coko, born Cheryl Elizabeth Gamble, recently announced on her website that she’s divorcing her husband Mike Clemons after 15 years of marriage.
She writes, “We always thought we’d be together forever! Through the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups and the downs…we’d still be married.”
“But, things don’t always work out the way we plan or hope. After 15 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to call it quits.”
Coko continues, “Our fairytale has come to an end. I’ll definitely miss him! But life goes on and I have to make the best of it. I wish him all the best in his future. I pray that he will lack nothing! For the sake of our son we will do our best to co-parent. We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love.”
“Life after divorce kind of scares me, but I have to be strong for myself and my son,” she admits.
“God got me and I’m surrounded by a great group of family and friends that hold me down. My Village!! I am blessed and highly favored!! READY FOR MY NEXT!!”
Coko and Mike share a son, Jaylon.
She has another son Jazz, whose father is Ishmael Butler from the legendary 90’s rap group Digible Planets.
Coko’s statement about her divorce comes several months after SWV was honored with the third annual Lady of Soul Award during the Soul Train Awards in November.
