Meet Angelica Zachary: Former Partner Of Marlon Wayans

Angelica Zachary may not be a big celebrity, but she is not new to any of us. She first came to limelight following her high profile relationship with actor, comedian, and film producer, Marlon Wayans.

Though there are many speculations about the couple’s marriage, they were together for more than two decades and gave birth to two beautiful children. After the separation, Zachary has preferred to stay away from the limelight and live a very low-key life.

Talking about her earnings and net worth, she is estimated at $1 million. She mainly earns from her day-to-day job and the spousal and child support she gets from Wayans.

On the other hand, her ex-husband, Marlon Wayans, is a famous personality-actor, comedian, and producer.  From his successful career, he collected a huge net worth of $40 million.

Relationship With Marlon Wayans

Angelica Zachary was in a relationship with Marlon Wayans for more than two decades. The former couple who met each other for the first time in 1993, reportedly got married in 2005.

There are many questions regarding their marriage. Few claims that two never got married while other online sources mentioned that they tied the knot in a very intimate ceremony. Wayans himself has stated that “marriage was not for him,” which created further confusion among people.

Whether they married or not, the reality is they were in a happy relationship for more than twenty years-they separated in 2013. Even after the separation, the couple has maintained a good relationship as Marlon can be seen praising his former partner time and again.

Together the pair welcomed two kids: a son and a daughter. They welcomed a daughter, Amai Zackary Wayans, in 2000 and after two years, a son,  Shawn Howell Wayans.

While talking about parenting style, Wayans said,

I Stopped being their dad a long time ago. I was like, ‘We’re going to be friends. As a dad, I don’t want to be all possessive like, ‘Who you talking to? I want to meet ’em!’ I don’t want to be sitting there shining bullets. No, I’m going to be your friend.

After the split, they decided to co-parent their kids- they are staying with mother Angelica.
