Celebrity couples have as many difficulties as any, but their personal lives invite more scrutiny and assumptions than most. And when those involved were child stars we watched grow up before our eyes, we may not perceive the fact that they became adults and were not defined by the characters they portrayed on television or in the movies.
Two years after they began dating, Malcolm-Jamal Warner has split with girlfriend Regina King. He of the Cosby Show, and she of 227 have parted ways. Warner told US Weekly “he wasn’t feeling it anymore”.
Warner told King to take her child, fathered by ex-husband Ian Alexander Sr., and move out.
The former couple, both 42, kept their relationship as private as possible given their professions. “She’s still very brokenhearted,” says the insider of the Southland actress.
In a 2011 interview with BET, Warner said: “We like to protect what we have because it’s very special and very precious . . . But I will say that it’s a relationship that makes all the sense in the world.”
King apparently believed their romance was headed in a different direction. “Malcolm and I have a lot in common,” King told Essence in January 2011. “we’ve both been child actors and were also blessed to be raised by incredible mothers who instilled good values in us. Things are maturing nicely.”
