Fans believed the duo – who got hitched in 2017 and share one child together – would work things out

However, Marc made it clear that even with the help of mediation practices, their marriage could not last

“After recently attending mediation, Kenya and I have agreed to end our marriage,” he told The Root

He continued: “I will always have great care for her and look forward to amicably continuing to co-parent our daughter Brooklyn with an abundance of love and wisdom.

“As always, in addition to perpetual self-improvement, my primary focus will continue to be helping the underserved and people of color in Brooklyn to recover from the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“This focus will take shape through using my restaurant as a ‘Community Hub’ where positive and diverse perspectives on important topics such as economic empowerment, social activism and political engagement can be highlighted in a safe and productive forum.

“I’m blessed to be a positive change agent for not just my family but also my community. Peace and love,” he concluded the message. 

The move comes after more than three years of marriage to the RHOA star.

In 2018, Kenya, 50, gave birth to the couple’s first and only child – a daughter named Brooklyn Doris Daly. 

The pair first announced they split in September 2019 but later reconciled. 

However, divorce rumors began to swirl in late 2020 as fans speculated the end was near. 

Last month, the reality show made a comeback for its 13th season without the OG housewife, Nene Leakes.

During the premiere, fans got a glimpse of Kenya’s relationship with her husband after the two announced they were separating last season.

As she met up with her divorce attorney, the former beauty queen couldn’t help the tears as they discussed filing for divorce or a separate maintenance decree, which would support either spouse and the children during the legal proceedings of a separation.

When asked which one she thought she wanted to proceed with, the 49-year-old said: “I need to just look at everything and figure it out.”

As Kenya was about to leave and the cameras had already left the room, her lawyer stopped her and told her to “stop self-deprecating.”

He told her: “You literally beat yourself up because of this dude. I know how black women want, especially black celebrity women. Y’all give away everything for your career and then be like ‘Okay, Imma go get this family.’

“But his failure is not your failure. His failure is his failure. You gotta get your fight back, dog.”

She simply responded with: “Well, I’m working on it, I’m here right?”

Kenya added in a confessional: “We have been separated well over ten months and I have Brooklyn with me 100 percent of the time.

“And I feel like I need to have custody issues settled before I file for divorce.”
