Big Boi Wife, Net Worth, Kids, Family Real Name
The moniker Big Boi commands reverence. As a member of Hip-Hop collective Dungeon Family, the Savannah Georgia-native helped usher the "dirty Southern" sound to mainstream listeners.
Together with Andre 3000, Big Boi went on to forge Hip-Hop's most commercially successful duo. With classic albums such as Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, ATLiens, Aquemini, Stankonia and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below under their belt, Outkast unceremoniously went to hiatus around 2003.

A year before Outkast's sabbatical, Big Boi had tied the knot with his wife, Sherlita Patton. The duo are parents to two kids: daughter Jordan (b. 1996) and Cross (b. 2001).
Jordan, the oldest, graduated from Auburn University in 2019. Meanwhile, Cross joined the University of Oregon's football program in October 2018. Apart from the two children, Big Boi's son Antwan Andre Patton II aka Bamboo from a previous relationship is also well-accepted by his wife.

The couple's marriage was on the verge of collapsing in 2013. October that year, Sherlita filed for divorce. Per reports, she sought alimony, an equitable division of marital property, and attorney’s fees.
No, it wasn't Big Boi's ex-marital relationship with girlfriends that compelled his wife to terminate their marriage. Sherlita reportedly found inappropriate photos of former rap partner Andre 3000's on his phone.
While estranged, Big Boi didn't go out of his ways to find a girlfriend. His preservation finally paid off. In June 2014, he and wife Sherlita reunited and never looked back.
Talking to TMZ following the reunion, the Roses wordsmith credited "Jesus" for saving their marriage.
