Keenen Ivory Wayans' ex-wife Daphne found love years after their divorce, and is now happily in-love and dating a younger boyfriend.


Keenen Ivory Wayans is a talented writer, director, and producer. He is responsible for a lot of the productions that launched his younger siblings to fame.

During a part of his Hollywood career, he was married to Daphne Wayans, with whom he shares five children named Jolie, Nala, Keenen Jr., Bella, and Daphne Ivory. The same way he revolved his career around comedy, he believes it's important to add humor in the way he brought up his children.

Although Keenen and Daphne were together for a while, they only decided to get married in 2001. Three years later, they ended up filing for divorce and requested joint custody of their five children.


Through it all, they kept a close relationship with one another and made sure to co-parent to the best of their abilities. Now, years later, Daphne is openly dating a much younger man, particularly the rapper Problem.



Recently, Problem made headlines after he decided to give back to his hometown of Compton. Although he goes by such a name, he actually created solutions for his community to get through such a difficult time.


The 35-year-old rapper is known in real life as Jason Martin, and he decided to pour in work to have arts and music programs be prioritized in Compton before communities are taught different business programs.

While Problem has been working on his own passion projects, Daphne has been backing him through it all.



On top of this, Problem has also allegedly been in contact with Compton's mayor to try and remind communities of the people that rose to fame who actually came from where they're from. To him, this could inspire others to reach for the same greatness and work on their crafts.

"I've been talking to the mayor about doing a Compton Walk of Fame! I think just being able to take the kids to see that."

While Problem has been working on his own passion projects, Daphne has been backing him through it all, showing her support behind the scenes.
