News broke Monday morning that Sherri Shepherd had filed for divorce on the heels of her estranged husband, Lamar Sally filing for separation just last week.
Sherri has remained mum on the topic, not even addressing it on The View today. HipHollywood spoke to her good friend Niecy Nash who said she respected Shepherd’s privacy and just asked for people to pray.
“If you discern that they’re having a tough time pray, that’s the best thing you could do,” The Soul Man actress told HH exclusively. Shepherd and Sally met through Niecy’s husband Jay Tucker and both actresses were in each other’s weddings.
In the divorce doc, Shepherd cited irreconcilable differences while asking for a judge to honor their prenuptial agreement. Her husband of three year has asked for the pre-nip to be invalidated on the grounds of fraud and is asking for full custody of their unborn child (via surrogate).
