Towanda Braxton Ends “Open Marriage,” But See Their Surprising DIVORCE DEMANDS

Posted On : March 16, 2017

Singer/reality TV star, Towanda Braxton, has officially made it final and divorced her husband of 12 years, Andre Carter. Truth be told, it seems like this divorce was LONG overdue, because ever since The Braxton Family Values hit television in 2011, we’ve been watching Mr. and Mrs. Andre Carter beef like crazy.

In case you’re not familiar with their marriage history (or maybe it was their odd way of showing public displays of affection…who know?) here’s a brief recap for you. In 2011 we witnessed Andre tell his wife on national TV that he loved her, but didn’t like her, just like he doesn’t like his Momma. Towanda described their relationship as roommates at that time. By the time 2014 rolled around, Towanda was on The Wendy Williams Show stating that she and Andre had an ‘open marriage.’

Andre’s lack of job security was another straining issue on their marriage. You see, Andre is an author, but Towanda once said that the only problem with that was he wasn’t selling any books. However, he was enjoying staying at home writing them though, while Towanda brought home the bread- something she did not appreciate.

The best part of their relationship was their two wonderful children, Braxton (11) and Brooke (10), whom they both actively raise…

Their Divorce Settlement Details

Now, according to Bossip, Towanda and Andre’s divorce demands are out. The details have surprised many because through all of the bickering we’ve seen between them, their divorce demands have got to be one of the most grown folks divorce settlements ever.

Basically, all both sides seem to want is a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T. See what we mean below:
It’s being reported that the divorce record indicates that Towanda earns three times what Andre does. Her $8,000 per month ($96K a year) versus his $2500 per month ($30k per year). Yet Andre wants zero support in the settlement.

They’ll just will walk away from the marriage with their own possessions and will not demand spousal, nor child support from the other. Their individual 401 K’s and bank accounts will remain untapped by each other as well.

Andre- who represented himself in court- also agreed with Towanda on the joint custody they’ll share of their kids. But if they cannot find a common ground in decisions regarding their children’s religion, education, and extracurricular activities, then Towanda gets to lay down the law with her final say.

What Towanda and Andre do want though, is for both sides to shut the hell up when it comes to talking smack about each other:

“Each shall refrain from conduct which does or may undermine a positive relationship between each child and the other parent,” their divorce deal, which was signed by both Carter and Braxton, read.

So in other words, their divorce could simply read like this: ‘As long as you mind your business, I’ll mind mine. Just don’t harm our kids and don’t say anything bad about me on the show, nor to the press. Now peace out, it was nice being married to you.’

Ahhh..if only other celebrity divorces could end so amicably. Mary J. might be probably somewhere reading this thinking ‘Damn, I wish Kendu would take notes from this.’
