Grammy award-winning songstress (and widow of the Notorious B.I.G.) Faith Evans, has officially filed for divorce from her record company executive husband Todd Russaw.

In the divorce, which was filed in Los Angeles County on May 17, 2011, Evans notes that she and her husband actually separated back in December 2005!

The couple married in 1997 and Evans cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for filing for divorce.

They have two children together, Joshua, 13, and Ryder, 4, who was born after the couple officially separated. Evans is seeking for sole physical custody of the kids, but joint legal custody in the papers.
