In January 2020, LoveBScott reported that Kenya Barris and Tracee Ellis Ross were an item. The news came not long after Kenya’s divorce from Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris became public.
Indeed, on August 12, 2019, AP News revealed that Kenya was ending his relationship with Rania after 20 years of marriage. AP also noted that the “Black-ish” creator has admitted that the fictional relationship between Ross’ character of Rainbow and her on-screen husband (played by Anthony Anderson) was based on his own relationship with Rania. That includes the marital problems that were seen during the show’s stories.

Kenya confirmed that he had split from his wife in April 2020, while opening up about both his professional and personal life on the “expediTIously with Tip T.I. Harris” podcast. “I’m going through a divorce right now,” he told the host. He then added, “Who knows what’s going to happen with that?” We do! Read on to find out what happened between Kenya and Raina following their divorce announcement.
