According to reports from Page Six, Krista Joiner filed a divorce petition against Xzibit — whose real name is Alvin Joiner — in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday. The celeb couple joins a long list of stars who have split this year, following other high-profile divorces like Dr. Dre and Nicole Young and, most recently, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.




The 46 year old rapper first met Krista back in 2001, though they didn’t end up tying the knot until November 2014. The couple went on to have two children together. One of their children, Xavier, was born prematurely on May 15, 2008, and tragically died eleven days later. They also share 10-year-old son Gatlyn. Xzibit also has a 25-year-old son, Tremaine, from a previous relationship.


As of now, it is unclear if Krista is asking for spousal and child support in the divorce and available records don’t reveal whether the pair ever signed a prenuptial agreement. The rapper has not yet filed his response.
