So Sad! Zendaya’s Parents File For Divorce
BY: NISHA THOMAS
Zendaya Coleman’s mother and father, Kazembe Ajamu Coleman (her dad and manager) and Claire Stoermer, are officially putting an end to their eight-year marriage, citing the cause to be irreconcilable differences. The couple got married back when Zendaya was only 12-years-old, however, as her biological parents, the divorce could obviously take a toll on the young star. Even though their split was allegedly something that the two of them both agreed upon, it still could get quite messy for the singer and her parents.
Fortunate for her, being that she is their only child, child support will not be an issue in their marital split. However, because Zendaya’s father is her manager, the money that has been made in her management deal could lead to the two of them going head-to-head over “community property,” according to TMZ.
The divorce papers that were filed by her mother reportedly say that Claire isn’t looking for any spousal support in their divorce, but she also doesn’t want Kazembe to be rewarded with anything either.
Their settlement has yet to be revealed, but it does look like the money issue has already been solved.
This is extremely upsetting news to the fans of Zendaya, who are well aware that she carries a very close relationship with her mother and father. Not only being spotted out with her parents, her father even accompanied her on her date with NFL player Odell Beckham.
Zendaya even stood up to some of her more careless fans when defending her mom and dad, who many called “Ugly” via social media.
Telling the haters to back off, she let it be known that her parents are “two of the most selfless people in the world.”
“They have chosen to spend their entire life, not worried about trivial things such as looks and insulting people’s parents on Twitter, but instead became educators who have dedicated their lives to teaching, cultivating and filling young shallow minds. (One of the most important yet underpaid jobs we have),” Zendaya wrote in her post firing back at the trolls.
We sure do wish Zendaya’s parents nothing but the best in their journey and hopefully their split doesn’t have a bad affect on the young singer, fashionista and actress.
