"Out of love and respect for one another we will continue to remain friends and raise our two beautiful daughters together," they said in a joint statement.
Lawrence and Shamicka were married for less than two years, but had been together for almost 17. They have two daughters ages 9 and 11.
Lawrence is seeking joint custody and is asking that their assets be divided per their prenuptial agreement.
