TMZ: Anthony Mackie of 'Avengers' Secretly Called It Quits with Wife & Childhood Sweetheart Sheletta Capital
"Avengers" star Anthony Mackie has secretly called it quits with his wife of 5 years, Sheletta Capital.
While most celebrity divorce news makes the headlines, Anthony Mackie tried to make his case an exception, but it wasn't wholly successful.
According to a report by TMZ, the "Avengers" star has ended things with his wife and childhood sweetheart, Sheletta Capital.
Staying true to his character in the Marvel superhero franchise, the publication reports that Anthony divorced Sheletta silently, leaving things neatly wrapped before anyone could notice.
While the case for the split hasn't been stated, close friends of the now-divorced couple maintain that their split was amicable as they plan to have joint custody of their three kids.
Although many didn't notice that there was trouble in paradise as the former couple kept their marriage private, TMZ notes that the star who plays Falcon in the "Avengers" movies attended the premiere of "Avengers: Endgame" earlier this year without his significant other.
This was a strain from the usual pattern of him and Sheletta showing up to events and posing shoulder to shoulder on the red carpet.
According to the Daily Mail, Anthony and Sheletta first met when they were seven years old and that they grew up together in New Orleans. However, they didn't start dating until grade school.
As reported by Page Six, the duo tied the knot in December 2014 in a secret ceremony in front of 150 close friends and family.
A source described the wedding as "low-key and super relaxed," adding that they had a welcome dinner for the couple.
A year after the wedding, the lovebirds welcomed their third child, as noted by Madamenoire.
The divorce doesn't seem to be taking a toll on Mackie, who is busy on the set of his new series, "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier."
