Who is Kel Mitchell’s ex-wife, Tyisha Hampton?

Tyisha Hampton is an actress, writer, and producer.

Her breakout role was in the 1997 TV series City Guys, where she played Nikki in one episode.

Hampton also appeared in the 1998 TV series Cousin Skeeter, where she’s credited as “Cute Girl.”

In 1998, she appeared, uncredited, in the hit comedy series, Kenan & Kel.

It wouldn’t be the first time she worked with her future beau, Kel Mitchell.

Hampton also voiced Mimi in three episodes of the children’s animated series, Clifford the Big Red Dog.

In 2004, she helped create Kel Video Lives (KVL), a collection of sketch comedy music videos starring Mitchell as various musical artists.

The following year, Hampton and Mitchell wrote the cult comedy classic film, Ganked.

The movie focuses on an aspiring songwriter, Ricky Barry, who, after having one of his songs stolen by a famous singer, is determined to get his revenge.

Hampton also served as the film’s executive producer, while Mitchell portrayed the movie’s protagonist, Ricky Barry.

Hampton’s last Hollywood credit was her starring role as Toni in the 2008 independent thriller, Voyeur: In Hindsight.

Little is known about her life after leaving the entertainment business, though it’s likely that Hampton took the time off to raise her children.

She regularly appears on her daughter’s social media accounts, including her Instagram posts and TikTok videos.

How long were they together?

Kel Mitchell and Tyisha Hampton got married on October 16, 1999, in a private, intimate ceremony.

The duo were married for six years, but ultimately called it quits in 2005.

In 2024, Mitchell revealed that shortly after the divorce, he met an evangelist while working on one of his films.

The evangelist reportedly told him he needed to “forgive some people and say their names aloud,” as reported by Premier Christian News.

“So I’ve said my ex’s name out loud, and forgave her,” Mitchell said.

“And you know, let go of that anger forever,” he added.

On February 25, 2012, Mitchell married rapper Asia Lee.

Despite Mitchell moving on, his relationship woes with Hampton have managed to stay afloat nearly two decades after their divorce.

In 2023, the duo were in the midst of a legal battle, with Hampton alleging that Mitchell owed her nearly $2 million in unpaid child and spousal support.

A judge later determined that Mitchell didn’t owe Hampton any back support, as reported by Radar Online.

Lee has managed to (mostly) stay out of her beau’s relationship and breakup drama with Hampton, though she hasn’t always kept quiet.

In January 2024, Lee wore a casual fit to the premiere of the film, The Book Of Clarence, revealing a t-shirt with the message: “His ex is my biggest fan,” while standing next to Mitchell.

Do Kel Mitchell and Tyisha Hampton have kids?

Kel Mitchell and Tyisha Hampton have two children together.

The duo’s first child, a son named Lyric, was born in 1999.

During an episode of Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast on May 15, 2024, Mitchell revealed that even though Hampton “almost died” in the hospital due to complications while giving birth, he was expected to return to work almost immediately, as reported by Atlanta Black Star.

Mitchell and Thompson also share another child, a daughter named Allure, who was born in October 2001.

Both Lyric and Allure had small cameo roles in Mitchell and Hampton’s 2005 film, Ganked.

After returning to Nickelodeon in the 2015 comedy TV series Game Shakers, Mitchell opened up about setting a good example for his kids.

“I would love for [my daughter] to see a show like, ‘You know what, let me make a game,'” he told ABC News in 2015.

“‘Let me make my own business. Let me be an entrepreneur.’ I think that’s awesome to show the kids now,” he added.

Mitchell also has two children with his second – and current – wife, Asia Lee.

Mitchell and Lee are the proud parents of a daughter, Honor, born in July 2017, and a son, Wisdom, born in October 2020.

While his older children appear to get along with his younger kids, as seen in a heartwarming video of the comedian’s oldest daughter, Allure, reading to Honor and Wisdom, the same can’t be said for their relationship with Mitchell himself.

In December 2022, Allure posted – and later deleted – a series of TikTok videos revealing that her father was only there for her “financially” while growing up, and was largely absent due to his busy career.

“I never cared about your money. I just needed my dad,” she revealed in the videos, as reported by Atlanta Black Star.
