Halima Rashid has filed for divorce after nearly 12 years of marriage to Jermaine Jackson, brother to the late Michael Jackson, citing irreconcilable differences and problems stemming from an alleged domestic spat last year, according to reports by TMZ .
Rashid in her divorce suit listed the pair’s separation date as Nov. 28, 2015 – the same day she made headlines after being arrested for domestic violence.
A case against Rashid for felony corporal injury on a spouse was dropped due to insufficient evidence.
TMZ sources say that Rashid bit her husband’s leg causing Jermaine to call the police on her. Another source claimed Jackson, 61, spit on his wife during the Thanksgiving weekend brawl .
The pair met while on line at Starbucks in January 2004 and married only months later. It marked the third marriage for the former Jackson 5 member.
Jermaine and Rashid did not have any children. Rashid is seeking spousal support.
