The eldest daughter of megachurch pastor T.D. Jakes, Cora Jakes Coleman, announced last week that her marriage to rapper Richard Brandon Coleman (known by the stage name SkiiVentura) is ending after 10 years. The couple have two adopted children: Amauri (13) and Jason (7).
Coleman posted an announcement to Instagram, saying, “It is with a heavy heart that I announce that my husband and I have decided to divorce. This is a very private and personal matter and I kindly ask for your prayers as I prioritize myself, and most importantly, my children’s well being at this time. God bless.”
Coleman, who is the author of “Faithing It: Bringing Purpose Back to Your Life” and “Ferocious Warrior: Dismantle Your Enemy and Rise,” has been vocal about her struggles with infertility and has used her platform to encourage women of faith in their journeys to motherhood, whether through childbirth or adoption. She also serves as an associate pastor at The Potter’s House, her father’s megachurch in Dallas, Texas, and is licensed through the Potter’s House School of Ministry.
