Martin Fitzgerald Lawrence (born April 16, 1965) is an American comedian, actor, producer, and writer. Lawrence came to fame during the 1990s, establishing a Hollywood career as a leading actor. He got his start playing Maurice Warfield in What’s Happening Now!! (1987–1988).
And it did seem that in the late 1990s, his life was spiraling out of control. But he says a lot of the stories were distorted, or just plain fabricated — like the reports that he suffered from a bipolar disorder. “They made a lot of things up to sell a better story,” he says.
Comedian and actor Martin Lawrence is splitting from his wife, Patricia Southall of Chesapeake, a former Miss Virginia-USA. The star of the Fox comedy “Martin” filed for divorce Tuesday from the former beauty queen, citing “irreconcilable differences. ” … Southall and Lawrence met in 1992 at one of his concerts.
He married Miss Virginia USA, Patricia Southall, in 1995. Lawrence and Southall have a daughter, Jasmine Page (born January 15, 1996). In 1997, Lawrence began a relationship with Shamicka Gibbs. They married on July 10, 2010, at Lawrence’s Beverly Hills home.
Not only did comedian Martin Lawrence play the cousin to rapper Christopher Martin in the movie House Party, but they’re cousins in real life.
Lawrence, in an attempt to lose weight for an upcoming movie role, had put on several layers of clothing to ”sweat off” the pounds and subsequently suffered heat stroke. When he arrived at the Los Robles Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Lawrence clocked in with a 107 degree body temperature.
Eddie Murphy’s son Eric is ‘head over heels in love’ for Martin Lawrence’s daughter Jasmin. … Jasmin Lawrence, 25, revealed she is dating Eric Murphy, 32, while wishing Murphy’s son a happy birthday on Instagram Saturday, posting two loving photographs of the couple. “Happy birthday, my love!
In January Lawrence’s TV co-star, Tisha Campbell, filed a suit alleging a pattern of sexual harassment and battery, which he denied. In March Lawrence was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery for having allegedly punched a Los Angeles man in the face twice after they bumped each other at a dance club.
In November 1996, Campbell — who played Gina — abruptly left the show amid rumors of tension between her and Lawrence. In January 1997, she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against her co-star. … There is no merit to the lawsuit, and it will be vigorously defended.” The suit was later settled out of court, per People.
