Twenty years of marriage, two children ... and $750,000 worth of shirts. That’s what Martin star Tisha Campbell-Martin says entitles her to spousal support from estranged husband Duane Martin, after learning that her soon-to-be ex is the owner of more than 500 shirts costing approximately $1,500 each. You do the math—and then, imagine the closet space you’d need to hang 500 shirts.

How does she know? Duane purportedly made a video showing off his impressive collection; though no word on if or where said video was posted.


Dude. Never leave a paper trail—let alone a damned video.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, after catching wind of Duane’s stash of what we can only assume are custom-made shirts, Tisha amended her February divorce filing by filing new legal documents listing the $750,000 in wardrobe as assets and citing them as proof that Duane has more than enough money to pay the spousal support she is requesting.

How much spousal support, you ask? No specific amount has been confirmed, but in the aforementioned documents Tisha listed $1.5 million in assets—though she also says she’s currently not earning steady income. Apparently, her monthly expenses currently total at least $33,000. Damn, Gina.

(Don’t look at me; I’m still trying to calculate closet space for 500 shirts ... and wondering what thread-count $1,500 shirts must be. Is the thread made of unicorn hair?)


In addition to the $750,000 worth of bespoke menswear, Tisha approximates Duane’s earnings at $62,000 per month. This, after additional documents she filed in June also accuse him of hiding and misappropriating money during their marriage.

From the sound of it, this split gets messier by the minute. I hope those shirts are stain resistant, Duane.
