Tisha Campbell asks for written custody deal after estranged husband fails to follow verbal deal
Singer and actress Tisha Campbell, best known for “My Wife and Kids,” revealed that her estranged husband, Duane Martin, is not following their verbal custody deal.
As TMZ reported, Tisha is asking the judge of the case to create a written deal as a way to force Duane to stick to it. At the moment, the exes have 50-50 custody, but the man has allegedly not made things easy.
One of the things that the “Martin” actress complained about was that Duane would not respond or cooperate on their previous agreement upon swap time for the children.
Apart from that, the man has reportedly threatened Tisha to keep their boys for longer than what the verbal custody deal stated. The actress is also asking to get a “neutral exchange location” like a police station.

In February 2018, after 27 years together and 22 of marriage, Tisha filed for divorce. “it pains me to announce that I've filed for divorce. It's an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family," said Tisha.

In her defense, Tisha revealed in August that Duane’s closet alone spelled big bucks with more than 500 shirts valued at $1,500 each. She even showed a video featuring her estranged husband’s extensive wardrobe collection.
Apart from that, her income declaration set clear that she earned a lot less than her husband, which suggests that he should be the one paying spousal support.
