Having worked in films like Scary Movie, White Chicks, Little Man, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Marlon has appeared alongside many high-profile stars like Jaime King, Jennifer Carpenter, Shawn Wayans, and Tracy Morgan, Marlon has kept his relationship issues quite unexplored over the years after his divorce.

So, is Marlon dating? What about his ex-wife Angelica's relationship status? Let's know their affairs, married life, and current dating issues.

Marlon Wayans' Relationship With Ex-Wife even after Divorce

Probably, after the divorce, Hollywood celebrities often cut off all the ties with their former partner but some stick in a close relationship, like a friend in need, is a friend indeed.

The same case is for the Fifty Shades of Black (parody of  Fifty Shades of Grey) star Marlon Wayans. Even after his split with his ex-wife Angelica Zachary, Marlon doesn't miss to wish her a birthday.

On February 26, 2018, Marlon shared an emotional Instagram post on Angelica's birthday. Many of the fans found it quite cute and applaudable.

Happy birthday to this wonderful soul. God is good to have blessed my life with you. So sweet so real so smart. You made me two beautiful children, and in spite of all my fuck ups you remain in my life as one of my best friends. Love bends and has not broken. What a strong woman you are. Beautiful black woman that is quick to announce her asian heritage and quicker to defend her strong African roots. Thank u for the occasional home cooked meals it’s hard out there in them streets. Thank you for your two hour prayers, i think they’re working. Thank you for keeping God first and teaching our children right from wrong as well as how to have self respect, dignity, humility and at the same time not to be anybody’s door mat. Thank u for your quiet resilience and support. I couldn’t achieve half of what i have without you allowing me the creative space to do so. I’m thankful for all the years we spent together but I’m more thankful for this beautiful friendship and this weird obtuse beautiful family that we have. When your daddy passed i rubbed his chest looked him in the eye and whispered in his ear “i got you”. He passed me his most prized possession to care for. And with honor and pride i do it. As long as I’m on this earth “i got you”. This relationship has taught me that it’s not about sex it’s just about LOVE. The unconditional, the acceptance. Finding a pocket where you can feel safe protected and love someone freely. I’m blessed to have you in all these shapes of water. Have a happy birthday baby. I hope you smile all your life. My ex wife, my children’s mother, my sister, my friend, my family... i just love you girl.

It seems Marlon is not over Angelica yet, but neither of them has talked on the issue to get reunited again.

On the issue about his parenting style, Marlon 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.

Hope Angelica's harmonious relationship with ex-husband Marlon remains so forever. We wish the two very best at raising their teenage children.
