Angelica Zachary is a New Yorker Born 51 Years Ago
Angelica Zachary was born on February 26, 1972, in New York and she is currently 51 years old. The actress and former model lives a private life and does not readily share details of her life with the media. As such, we were unable to get verifiable information about the identity of her parents and siblings, her educational background, or any notable history in her professional life before she got famous.
Regarding how she started her career, Angelica reportedly played a minor role in the 1988 action-comedy film I’m Gonna Git You Sucka but aside from that, we found no elaborate details of her professional life. It is not out of place to assume that she is known globally today following her marriage with Marlon Wayans albeit it failed.

Although Angelica is recognized as a professional actor, she was basically unknown until her marriage to celebrity actor and comedian, Marlon Wayans. The couple met and exclusively dated each other for twelve years before officially tying the knot in a private ceremony in 2005. On a unanimous agreement, their wedding only had a few family members in attendance as the couple lived a very private life, away from the media.
Angelica and Marlon lived together for eight years and possibly enjoyed each other’s company for the better part of their almost a decade-old union. Being that they shut out the media from their marital life, it is best to assume that the privacy they really sought must have contributed to the growth of their marriage in those early years. However, their marriage was not one that would last forever as it began to wobble in 2010.
Angelica Zachary and Marlon Wayans Parted Ways in 2013
Angelica Zachary and Marlon Wayans got separated in 2010 but even as they lived separately, they jointly raised their kids until 2013. Marlon was seen sharing a kiss with another woman. This sparked off rumors of Marlon having cheated and not surprisingly, the couple officially announced their divorce that same year.
Be that as it may, the primary reason for their divorce remains unknown as they never disclosed any details of it to the media, only citing irreconcilable differences. However, seeing what Marlon did when they were separated but still jointly raising their kids, it is believed that he might have contributed more to the debacle of their marriage than saving it.
The Couple are Still Actively Involved in Their Children’s Lives
While married, Angelica Zachary and Marlon Wayans had two kids together. Their first child and daughter was born in May 2000 and they named her Amai Zackary. Two years after her birth, they welcomed their son, Shawn Howell Wayans. The children are currently 23 and 21 respectively. At the time of their birth, Angelica and Marlon were not officially married.
After their divorce in 2013 following their eight years of marriage, the couple still maintained a close relationship. Although their two kids lived with their mother, Angelica. Their father Marlon is very much involved in raising them and took part in making major decisions about their lives.
In 2019, Marlon confirmed that their daughter Amai is a lesbian and it appears the family is very supportive of her. While we verified that the kids are currently in school, we found no other details about their hobbies and personal activities.
They Remain Good Friends Many Years Latter
Quite unlike the typical celebrity life after divorce characterized by messy fights for alimony, custody tussles, etc, Angelica Zachary and her ex-husband Marlon Wayans have remained good friends. In a 2017 interview with ET Online, Marlon disclosed he still has respect and love for his ex-wife. His affection for her is further displayed in the content of his 2018 birthday wishes to her via his Instagram page.
Angelica Never Remarried After Her Divorce From Marlon
Many years has passed since Angelica Zachary’s divorce from Marlon Wayans and she has remained single and never disclosed any details of her love life. She currently lives in New York City where she devotes her time to creating memories with her two children.
She is not active on any social media platform and thus, we could not verify what she is currently up to and any hobbies she might have. But be that as it may, it is believed or better hoped that she is having a good life and is content with who she has grown to become today.
On the other hand, Marlon sparked off rumors of a possible relationship with actor Essence Atkins through an Instagram post he made. He has, however, neither debunked nor confirmed the rumors.
She is Said To Have Profited From Their Divorce Settlement
Because she kept her professional life private, details of Angelica Zachary’s salary and income remain unknown. It is not even known where she works currently and in what capacity. However, we do confirm that the celebrity wife has a net worth estimate of over $5 million.
This estimate comes largely from the settlement she got after her divorce from Marlon. Though they did not make a fuss during the resolution of their marriage, Angelica seems to have a fair share of what they had as a married couple.
