Black-Ish Creator Returns To Wife - After Rumors Tracee Ross Was Sidepiece

Black-ish creator Kenya Barris has called off his divorce from his longtime wife Rainbow and the couple appears to have reconciled, MTO News has learned.

New court documents show that Kenya filed to have his divorce case dismissed from the court on May 15. The filing means he is asking the court to throw out the divorce proceeding, and remain legally married to his wife.

Kenya filed for divorce from Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris in August 2019 following 20 years of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences."

But there were rumors that Kenya may have been caught having an inappropriate relationship with Black-ish actress Tracee Ellis Ross.


The rumors of Kenya and Tracee started, as soon as he filed for divorce. Here's what the usually reliable B Scott wrote:

Multiple sources told the entertainment website LoveBScott in late January that Ross and Barris are dating. The exact timeline of their rumored romance is unclear. But the outlet notes that Barris filed for divorce from his wife, Dr. Raina “Rainbow” Barris, back in August 2019. They were married for 20 years and share six children.

Well whatever was going down with Tracee and Kenya, it apparently didn't work out because Kenya is back with his wife.
