Krista Joiner, wife of American rapper and presenter Xzibit, filed for divorce with a judge in Los Angeles on Monday, reports TMZ.
The two had been together for over 20 years and married in November 2014. Their marriage became world news after Alvin Joiner, the real name of the 46-year-old rapper, was arrested a few hours later for speeding while intoxicated.
Xzibit and Joiner had two children, Xavier and Gatlyn. Xavier was born prematurely and died eleven days after his birth. The rapper also has a child from a previous relationship.
It is not clear whether Joiner requested maintenance or whether the couple married on a prenuptial agreement. It is possible that agreements will be made about guardianship before the divorce can be finalized.
In the Netherlands, ‘X’ is best known as a presenter of the MTV program Pimp My Ride. In addition, he had some hits in the Netherlands with the songs Paparazzi in X.
