The former actress’s last projects were 'Genre This' and 'A Real Black Horror' in the year 2012.

Well, bursting your bubble, the former couple were very tight-lipped regarding their relationship.

“I got a phone call.”
During the call, Wilson stated,
“We should be separated.”
Then the star actor stated,
“I'm back in Brooklyn. I moved out of L.A. in January... (We were married) just three-and-a-half (years). It didn't last that long.”
Separating after three years of marriage, this was their first conversation regarding the split.
As the couple was very secretive about the details of their marriage and life together, the former husband and wife did not really give out insight about their split as well.
Alongside marriage and wife talks, there are constant questions regarding Yoba's kids.
Adding three happiness into his life, Malik has welcomed two beautiful daughters, Pria Yoba, Dena Yoba, and a son Josiah Yoba into his life.

Talking about partners, there are a lot of questions and assumptions relating to that topic, so let’s debunk them.

He then stated,
“TRANS PEOPLE DESERVE LOVE AND RESPECT AS DO THOSE OF US THAT LOVE THEM!!”
“I love ALL women AND count MYSELF among those that find themselves trans attracted, and I too have felt the self imposed shame that comes with that truth but it’s time to speak up."
Adding on about attraction and humanity, he quoted,
“It is NOT about GENITALIA OR SEX but about attraction to the soul and humanity of an individual and often the beauty that is in the courage and conviction to live ones truth!”
“As a self identified cis heterosexual man I too am learning what it means to be trans attracted.”
With this caption, he clarified all the gay rumors the star was surrounded with.
Adding on to his love and acceptance of trans people, he then decided to host a workshop in Washington at the National Trans Visibility March
After coming out in public regarding his attraction, the children's mother, Terry, had something to say,
With unconditional love towards her former partner, Terry shared her concerns about not having a conversation with their children before coming out in public and how he should make their family his first priority.
