According to the legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Franklin claims the former couple’s official date of separation is August 21, 2021. In the filing, DeVon cites “irreconcilable differences” for the reason the famous duo split up and confirms they were married on June 16, 2012.
Interestingly, Franklin is asking the court to “terminate” its ability to award either of them spousal support — which normally indicates there was a prenuptial agreement. The couple didn’t share any children, so child support isn’t an issue in this case. In 2019, the actress shared a video of the couple in the family’s entertainment office, saying she was “getting ready for babies,” but the couple never had kids.

The date of separation is important for several reasons. On one hand, it can have major financial implications in a celebrity divorce, considering anything AFTER the date can’t be considered “community property.” In other words, each party would keep anything they made after that date. Also, Good could argue it happened on a different date in her response to this divorce filing. It is very common.
