Actress Alexis Fields is pulling the plug on her marriage after nearly 17 years with her husband, Kevin Jackson.
The ‘Kenan and Kel’ star who is also known for her roles in ‘Roc’ and other shows, filed for dissolution of marriage in the Los Angeles County Courts. The filing says the actress has been with her husband for 16 years and 10 months, after getting married in 2005.
Alexis is the younger sister of famous actress Kim Fields and the daughter of actress Laverne ‘Chip’ Fields-Hurd. According to several reports, Alexis stepped away from acting to focus on a career in interior design.
The former couple share two children together, ages 13,7. Alexis cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.

In the documents, Alexis is asking the court to order Jackson to pay spousal support and terminates its ability to order her to pay any support. The good news, she is asking the judge to award “joint” custody to both her and Kevin.
As for the money, the filing says Fields is “unaware of the true nature and extent of her separate property at this time.” She says she will file the proper paperwork when the time is right in the case.
Interestingly, if you are familiar with Alexis, she has a funny quote describing her Twitter account, saying, “Ain’t she that actress chick? Ain’t she that other actress chick’s sister? Didn’t her mama burn Penny with that iron? Yup. Now what?”
