Lena Waithe & Wife Alana Mayo Split 2 Months After Marriage Announcement

Lena Waithe and Alana Mayo are no more.

Two months after the “Master of None” actress announced their marriage, the two issued a statement Thursday confirming their split.

“After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways,” their reps said. “We have nothing but support for one another and ask that you respect our privacy during this time.”

On a November 2019 episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Chi” creator told guest host John Legend she and Mayo secretly got hitched in San Francisco.

“We snuck and did it,” the 35-year-old said while showing off a wedding ring on her left hand. “You know, we didn’t make any announcements.”

“It was her idea, like all good things are,” the “Queen & Slim” screenwriter continued. “She was just driving and she saw the courthouse and she said, ‘We should get married there.’ And I said, ‘Cool, I’m down.’”

Waithe proposed to Mayo on Thanksgiving Day 2017 during a trip to Tokyo.
