After 10 years of marriage, R&B crooner Anthony Hamilton and his wife, fellow singer Tarshá, are calling it quits. The couple announced their split yesterday via a joint statement: “Tarshá and Anthony’s greatest priorities are loving and raising their three children and they are committed to co-parenting together.”

The split appears to be amicable, and they will also remain professional partners. “Both will continue to work in tandem on various music projects including Tarshá’s upcoming debut Sounds Like Tarshá which will be released on Pennie Bank Productions,” the statement continues.

ESSENCE reached out to Hamilton’s reps for comment. They responded with the following statement from him: “This was a difficult decision that she and I made together. We’ll continue to be great friends and even better parents to our three sons. Thanks for respecting our family’s privacy during this time. This will be our only comment on this private family matter.”
