Let’s find out the reason behind his troublesome married life. 

Rodney Carrington’s Wife

Rodney is a multi-talented person who is a comedian, singer, actor, and writer. However, seeing his successful career, we can’t say the same about his married life.

Rodney married Terri in 1993. He has three sons with his wife of eighteen years; Zac Carrington, Sam Carrington, and George Carrington. 

However, the marriage between the couple did not work out and ended in 2012. Their divorce process started in 2010, and they officially split in 2012.

In a telephone interview with The Free Press, Rodney revealed that he tried his best to make his marriage work, but it wasn’t meant to be.  He said, 

“I was married for 18 years and that ends tomorrow (Tuesday) — thank God,” “It’s an official date. I’ve been going through it for two years and it’s gonna be kind of a relief.

He added:

“I will tell you this. Once you come out of the cave of divorce, good God is the sun much brighter. Everything in the f— cake is much sweeter and so is the candy . . . life begins.”

Things got hard for Rodney when he had to move out temporarily to a guest house while his wife, Terri, lived in their big house with their children. 

Rodney also accepted that he was not able to communicate with his ex-wife but only talked for the sake of their kids. He said, 

“We split them half the time. I get my boys half the time.”

"I was doing really good, and out of the clear blue, she says, 'I'm leaving.' Well if that (relationship) don't work, I don't know what the. ... "
