Another celebrity couple is calling it quits.

R&B singer, Coko of legendary group, SWV revealed on Monday that she and her husband of 15 years, musician Mike Clemons, are divorcing according to Essence.

The 47-year-old wrote on her personal website, “Hot Coko,” that after a lot of thought and consideration they are parting ways and ending their marriage.

“We always thought we’d be together forever! Through the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups and the downs…we’d still be married.  But, things don’t always work out the way we plan or hope,” the New York native wrote in the post. “After 15 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to call it quits.  Our fairytale has come to an end.  I’ll definitely miss him!  But life goes on and I have to make the best of it.”

The couple met in 1995 when Clemmons worked as a drummer for the hit-making 90s trio, and while their relationship was professional at the time, they later wed in 2003. During their marriage, the couple welcomed a son, Jalen, and Coko admits that she wants nothing more than to co-parent successfully now that they’re calling it quits. She also says she hopes to remain strong in her faith during this time.

Coko added, “I wish him all the best in his future.  I pray that he will lack nothing!  For the sake of our son, we will do our best to co-parent.  We’re not enemies, we’re just two people that fell out of love. Life after divorce kind of scares me, but I have to be strong for myself and my son.  God got me and I’m surrounded by a great group of family and friends that hold me down.  My Village!!  I am blessed and highly favored!!”
