TIA Mowry has filed for divorce from her husband, Cory Hardrict, after 14 years of marriage, the star confirmed on Tuesday.
The 44-year-old has also demanded that spousal support be denied.
The 1990s sitcom star cited irreconcilable differences in the court documents obtained on October 4th, per TMZ.
According to the outlet, Tia “didn’t specify a date of separation, but she’s asking a judge for joint physical and legal custody of their two children.
“She’s also asking the judge to terminate the court’s ability to give spousal support to either.”
It was also revealed, per TMZ, that “the couple has a prenup.”
Tia and Cory share two children, Cree, 11, and Cairo, four, and got married in 2008.
She explained: “I have always been honest with my fans, and today is no different.
“I wanted to share that Cory and I have decided to go our separate ways.
“These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness.
“We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children.”
“I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives,” she concluded.
‘MY BIGGEST FAN’
Tia first gained stardom for her starring role as Tia Landry in the sitcom Sister, Sister, opposite her twin sister Tamera Mowry.
The dynamic duo then starred together in the Disney Channel original movie Twitches and its sequel, Twitches Too.
Tia has 51 acting credits to her name- most recently she’s starred in the ongoing sitcom Family Reunion.
In 2020 on her YouTube series she said that her husband was her support system as she continued navigating show business.
“Cory is a man of faith and a man of God,” she said at the time.
“He’ll put something on the board and he’ll say, ‘Tia, I know that that’s going to come to pass’, and I’m like, this dude is crazy.”
She added: “Then it comes to pass and not only that—he taught me how to believe in myself more than I believe in myself. He is like my biggest supporter and biggest fan.”
Cory, 42, is a Hollywood actor from Chicago, Illinois.
He started his career in the 1990s on prime-time television, starring in shows such as Smart Guy, Felicity, Once and Again, and ER.
Cory made his cinematic debut in Never Been Kissed with Drew Barrymore in 1999.
Throughout the early 2000s, he continued to appear in both films and on TV shows, including Pacific Blue, Angel, Boston Public, The District, The Shield, Cold Case, and Gran Torino.
He later appeared in Hollywood Horror alongside his soon-to-be-ex-wife in 2009- the same year Cory appeared in He`s Just Not That Into You.
Tia and her sister, Tamera, were coming off the success of Sister, Sister when they were driving through a Los Angeles neighborhood where Cory was working.
“Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride,” Cory told reporters.
“I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since.”
He continued: “I was dirt poor, I didn’t have anything and she appreciated everything for what it was and she loved me for me.
“And I knew once I could get in a financially better situation, I’m going to buy her a ring and that’s going to be my wife. And here we are, so that’s when I knew she was the one for me because it was real love. It’s not perfect, now…but that’s love.”
Cory courted Tia for a year before, in 2000, they decided to move from friendship into something more.
“I just held out. We weren’t physical, we didn’t do anything for a while to make sure this was something special and this was something real,” Tia told reporters in 2013.
“We courted each other for about a year. We didn’t go on dates with just him and I, there were other people around. We waited a year to kiss.”
Cory proposed to Tia in 2006 surrounded by her family and in 2008 they got married at The Four Seasons in Santa Barbara, California.
