Alana Mayo and Lena Waithe's single status will officially be restored on May 24. ET obtained the former couple's divorce judgment, which notes that a mutual waiver of spousal support has been agreed upon in addition to divvying up of other assets and property.

In their split announcement to ET in January 2020, the former couple said they had "nothing but support for one another." 

"After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," read their joint statement. "We have nothing but support for one another and ask that you respect our privacy during this time."

The screenwriter, producer and actress revealed that she and Mayo had tied the knot during a November appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which was guest hosted by John Legend.

"We snuck and did it, you know. We didn’t really make any announcements or a big, you know," Waithe said of their ceremony, as a photo of her and Mayo flashed on the screen. "That's my wife. She's beautiful."

"We went to San Francisco. We went to the courthouse and got married right in front of Harvey Milk’s bust," she shared. "It was her idea, like all good things are, and 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 and Mayo announced their engagement in 2017. See more on Waithe in the video below.
