Even though they haven’t been seen in public together since 2015, Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres are still officially married so when she was seen macking on some non-Morpheus looking dude in public, pearls got clutched.
According to Page Six, Gina, who’s been married to Laurence since 2002, had lunch with her ~mystery~ man at Sweet Butter in L.A., and at one point, the paps caught them kissing each other. Gina also wasn’t wearing her wedding ring.

Gina was on USA’s Suits for six years before leaving to deal with some personal (possibly marriage related?) business. I don’t watch Suits because I have not gone into menopause yet but it must be pretty popular with auntie’s or something because it’s getting a spin-off starring Gina in 2018 and I will be mad if they don’t call it Pant Suits.
But anyway, it looks like Gina and Laurence are done. It also sounds to me like two grown ass people went about their business and didn’t bother to make their split legally official or tweet/Instagram/publicist press release about it. Good for them. And who cares that Gina’s new man likes to rock the black socks, cargo shorts and polo t-shirt look of a man who is always either on his way to the gym or just coming from the gym.
Gina and Laurence let everyone know today that they’ve been doing for a while:
“With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.”
Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.”
