The couple married in November of 2011 and had two kids together.
“The two simply grew apart, but are able to remain great friends,” a source told TMZ. It was also reported that Evangeline stays in New York City while Thompson is shooting his NBC sitcom “Kenan” in Los Angeles.
“Being married for 11 years, together for 14, changes a lot of things. They really just grew apart and wanted different things,” a different source added to US Magazine. “There’s nothing juicy about why they split.”
“[They’re] very happy. They’ve lived together as a couple and were excited to share the moments with close friends,” an insider told the publication after their wedding. “She was thrilled and [was] a beautiful bride.”
Thompson has been a part of “SNL” since 2003, making him the show’s longest-serving cast member. Evangeline, on the other hand, is a model, actress and interior designer.

This is sad but I have been noticing things since his show came out, namely an interview where he said his wife was mad that he was married to a BW on the show. Then he would wear his ring on SNL more then got a tat on his ring finger…just observations. https://t.co/Vz0SfEsjtw— CEO: Justice Jackson Fan Club (@blerd316) April 7, 2022
