At a point in her life, MC Lyte (born Lana Michele Moorer) revealed finding true love in John Wyche, a Marine Corps veteran she met through a dating site. This true love led to a musical romantic wedding in Jamaica in 2017. Unfortunately, they only lasted 3 years before a divorce in 2020 and her once upon a time husband is now an ex.
The question is, what happened between MC Lyte and her ex-husband? Before the story in full, MC Lyte is famed for being a multi-award-winning musician and actress. She has released multiple albums such as Legend (2015), Da Undaground Heat, Vol. 1 (2003), Act Like You Know (1991), and Lyte as a Rock (1988). As a result of this fame, her ex, Wyche, a businessman who had worked with the US Marine Corps also became prominent.
Meet MC Lyte’s Ex-husband, John Wyche
John Wyche served in the US Marine Corps and later became a food service and tech entrepreneur. He kept a private life before he became famous after the well-known 53-year-old Lyte, showed him off to the world on her Instagram page in January 2017.
Lyte who was at the time 46 years old wrote:
It’s been a long time, this single life, and I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope. God has sent me true love. For all of you waiting on LOVE- don’t give up – keep God first and he will see that you meet your match. #godisall.
Before then, the couple met through Match.com, a dating site in 2016. Lyte became one of the many celebrities to turn to dating apps. Others are Carrie Ann Inaba, Deborah Ann Woll, and Lindsay Lohan.
At the time they met on the dating app, Lyte had no idea that she was famous. However, someone thought she looked familiar and told him to Google her.
In May 2017, a few months after she first showed him off, the Paper Thin singer announced that she was engaged to Wyche. They had an intimate and soulful wedding on August 12, 2017, at the Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Reggae Congo bands played as Lana walked down the aisle while Kelly Price also performed.
Why MC Lyte Divorced From Her Husband of 3 Years
In August 2020, 3 years after the former couple were married, MC Lyte filed for a divorce. HipHopDX reveals that there have been problems in the marriage shortly after it started. The website reveals that just 5 months after walking down the aisle, the former couple separated.
What may have caused the divorce? Well, Lyte cited irreconcilable differences and revealed that the failure of the marriage didn’t mean that they failed but that things didn’t work out.
The divorce proceedings took about a year and the public was quick to call it a battle. However, the entertainer set the record straight that the only delay there ever was is connected to Wyche’s desire to save the relationship and not that he wanted her property.
Here is her revelation through her Instagram page:
John Wyche is Not the Only Person Linked to Lyte
There is no revelation about the love life of Wyche before Lana Moorer. However, his ex-wife Lyte has been linked to Todd Brown Muhammed, popularly known as Todd 1.
Todd was an MTV VJ and dated MC Lyte in the 1990s. There are further unverified claims that the entertainers were married.
In any case, their relationship was long before Wyche came into the picture and before the passing of Todd 1 in 2019.
In a similar manner, there are claims that MC Lyte dated famous musician and actress Janelle Monae in 2015. The rumor has not been confirmed by either of the celebrities. Yet, the same year, Janelle was linked to Lewis Hamilton.
