The “Fast and Furious” actor shared a joint statement about the split on his Instagram on Tuesday.
“We have decided to make a statement of a painful and significant development in our lives. After much thought, consideration, and prayer, We unfortunately have made the difficult decision to officially separate & divorce,” the joint statement from the couple begins.
The former couple, who share a daughter, Soraya, 2, tied the knot in February 2017. In their statement, the two say their “intention is to remain the best of friends & strong coparents.”

“We feel incredibly blessed to have found each other and deeply grateful for the 4 years we have been married to each other. Our journey together has been a ride of both ups & downs, but it’s a journey that neither of us would have chosen to take with anyone else. We truly have so much love & respect for each other. We both have grown tremendously within this relationship; we have shared so many beautiful memories and moments, and we also look forward to see the amazing futures we have ahead of us individually,” the statement continues.
The statement was shared with a throwback photo of Tyrese kissing Samantha on the cheek at a red carpet event.
