Did Keenen Ivory Wayans & His Wife Split or Are They Still Together

American comedian guru Keenen Ivory Wayans is a well-known person in the entertainment industry. The self-made king holds an incredible net worth, but the question is, does he share the said net worth with a special someone? Perhaps a wife? Or a girlfriend?

Let's Find Out,

Does Keenen Ivory Have a Wife?

Single now comedian Keenen Ivory Wayans was previously married to his teenage sweetheart Daphne Polk.

Crossing paths with his now-former wife, Daphne Polk, at the age of 16, the comedy star started a beautiful romance story before he could make it big in the comedy world. 

It was in summer vacation when Wayans met Daphne Polk and started the relationship as "just friends," which began to change and grow immensely close with laughter and feelings.

Later on, deciding they were made for each other, the couple got married in June 2001.

Finally tying the knot at the age of 18, the young couple then entered into a husband-wife relationship welcoming their five children and leading a happy family of their own.

With his career and family on both sides, Wayans, a boy who left his engineering scholarship, decided he was destined to do a different thing. Inspired by his idol Richard Pryor, Wayans then entered the comedy world with multiple comedy standup performances.

Coming together with fellow comedian Eddie Murphy, he started his own collaborative show ‘Eddie Murphy Raw.’ His dynamic performances gave him a breeding ground to start his own show, “In Living Color,” along with his siblings.

The show gained success at a great height, blessing his comedy career with more fame and fortune. Resulting in a raving net worth of $65 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

With his amazing career, the star comedian also holds several achievements, such as TV Land Groundbreaking Show Award (2012), The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Series (1990), and PGA Most Promising Producer in Television (1992).
