Filed in Los Angeles County on May 17, 2011, Evans notes that she and her husband actually separated in December 2005!

The couple married in 1997 and Evans cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for filing for divorce. They have two children together, Joshua, 13, and Ryder, 4, who was born after the couple officially separated. She asked for sole physical custody of the kids, but joint legal custody in the papers.

Evans asked for Russaw to get written permission to take the children out of California.

She is often referred to as rap’s most famous widow, and was married to the Notorious B.I.G. in 1994.  She separated from him shortly before his murder in March 1997. The couple had one son together.

In January 2004, the couple was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine and an improper tag violation during a traffic stop outside of Atlanta.  They agreed to enroll in a 13-week drug rehabilitation program
