Singer Faith Evans has filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Todd Rusawa.

According to the former couple, the split was amicable. In a joint statement released by Evans and Rusawa, the two stated that despite their break-up, raising their children remain their first priority. “The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone’s life,” read the statement. “However, after a great deal of thought and careful consideration, we have come to the decision to end our marriage together.

“We will both remain committed to parenting our children and will also continue to support each other’s professional endeavors. We consider this a private matter and we will not make any further statement regarding the matter. We would appreciate the press respecting the privacy of our family, particularly our children, as we attempt to handle our situation with respect and dignity.”

According to court paperwork, the 37-year-old entertainer is seeking joint legal and sole physical custody of their two sons, Joshua, 12, and, Ryder, 4. The paperwork also states that the former couple has been separated since 2005.

Evans married Rusawa not long after the death of her first husband, Notorious B.I.G., in 1998. Her short-lived marriage to the slain rapper resulted in a son, Christopher Wallace Jr., who is 14 and recently starred alongside Will Ferrell in the feature film ‘Everything Must Go.’

Evans’ last album was 2010’s ‘Something About Faith,’ which earned her a Best Female R&B Vocal Performance nomination for the single ‘Gone Already’ at the 2011 Grammys.
