Kel Mitchell, the star of the 2002 Nickelodeon hit show Kenan & Kel star won a pretty big legal battle against his ex-wife , Media Take Out confirmed. A judge ordered that the former child star does not owe any back support.

According to court documents that were first published online by, Kel and his ex Tyisha are locked in a very bitter divorce. The couple married from April 23, 1999 and divorced August 16, 2005. They share two children, Lyric and Allure.

Tyisha had taken Kev to court, claiming that he was delinquent in his child support payments. She wanted back payments – and even requested that the former actor be put in jail, Media Take Out has learned.

Kel’s attorney argued, “[Tyisha] has a long history of foul play. There is evidence to support that she misrepresented her assets/income to the Court in the past. She has forged a grant deed, and signatures to transfer the title of the family residence in this case. She was charged criminally with identity theft.”

“Tyisha has done everything in her power to drag me through her path of destruction,” Kel said.

The judge ruled in Kel’s favor and found that the $425k his ex-received from the home sale was more than enough to cover any back support that was owed.

The order noted, “The Court finds that any and all arrears pursuant to the Judgment from [Kel] to [Tyisha] are paid in full by Petitioner”.
