AceShowbiz - Surprise! Anthony Mackie is single and has been for a couple of years. Without many knowing, the 41-year-old Marvel actor has parted ways with his wife, childhood sweetheart Sheletta Chapital, since two years ago.
According to TMZ, the Sam Wilson/Falcon of Marvel Cinematic Universe filed for divorce from Chapital in late 2017. He officially became single after allegedly finalizing the proceedings last year. The reason of their split is unclear.
Anthony Mackie first met Sheletta Chapital in grade school. They tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony in 2014. He reportedly flew her to Dominican Republic for the nuptials while he was filming his movie "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock. The wedding only came to light after people noticed she had changed her surname to Chapital Mackie on social media.
In a 2014 interview with Queen Latifah, he recalled her first meeting with Chapital, "It was funny. I was coming from a very bad school and going to a very good school. And when I walked into second grade it was Dr. Seuss Day, and we had the little hot plate out and the teacher was making green eggs and ham. So I walk in and I looked and I see this little girl with these ratty pigtails and skinny legs, and I was like 'Wow!' "
The two share three children. Two of them were born before they got married and she gave birth to the third one in 2015. They are expected to share custody of their kids, but details of the child and spousal support are not revealed.
Mackie and Chapital attended events together in the past but she hasn't been seen accompanying him to public events for the past couple of years. He also showed up solo at "Avengers: Endgame" premiere earlier this year.
Mackie will soon reprise his superhero role in new web TV miniseries "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier". He is joined by Marvel stars Sebastian Stan who returns as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Daniel Bruhl as Helmut Zemo, and Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter.
