‘Black-ish’ Creator Kenya Barris Calls Off Divorce From His Wife 

It looks like love may still be in the air for “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris and his wife Dr. Rania Barris. As we previously reported in August of last year, American TV producer Kenya Barris filed for divorce from his wife Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris after being married for 20 years. However, it seems that the couple has had a change of heart. According to reports, on May 15th Kenya Barris filed a request for dismissal of the divorce. If granted, he and his wife will still be legally married.

This isn’t the first time that Kenya Barris has filed for or called off their divorce. Back in 2014 he filed for divorce from his wife but later withdrew. 

It was also rumored earlier this year that Kenya Barris was dating American actress Tracee Ellis Ross.

Ironically enough, Tracee Ellis Ross plays the character ‘Rainbow Johnson’ on ‘Black-ish’ that was inspired by the real-life Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris. Tracee Ellis Ross and Kenya Barris have never confirmed or denied the dating rumors. 

Kenya Barris and Dr. Rania Barris married in 1999 and share 6 children together.
