A source tells us,

They’ve been together for years. Their relationship actually ended his marriage.

We’re told that Carl and his then wife worked on animated series, Black Dynamite together. Our source claims that Badu came on the show to do voice-over work for the series and that’s when she met Carl. We hear that Carl immediately fell for Badu. We’re unsure if that’s what ended Carl’s marriage, but immediately thereafter, he and Badu allegedly began dating.
