Who Is Lisa Thorner? Ex-Wife Of Damon Wayans

Lisa Thorner is famous as an ex-spouse of Damon Wayans, an American actor, comedian, producer, and writer. She is a former model.

Married Life

Thorner married  Damon Wayans in 1984. At the time of their marriage, Wayans was in the initial phase of his career. 

Wayans, during an interview, talked about how humor became his career. 

He said he was thrown off from three high schools because he was working on his materials, which neither teachers nor he knew. 

He used to hang out with his older brother Keenen, who was doing stand-up at Improv then. 

He would give his brother jokes to try, and they would work, making him think he could excel in it. 

He also humorously added that at home, he used to tell his wife how good Keenen was, and his wife would say to him if he had better do it or otherwise, she would sleep with Keenen.

The couple divorced in 2000 after 16 years of marriage.

From their marriage union, they gave birth to their four children: two sons, Damon Wayans Jr. and Michael Wayans, and two daughters, Cara Mia and Kyla Wayans.

Their son Damon Wayans Jr. is following his father's footsteps, and his father is very proud of him, but what he is more proud of is that he is a great dude. 

Wayans Sr. said he is told by everybody that his son is unique and is loved by everyone and that he is like pancakes. 

She Is Single

Following the divorce from her husband, she chose not to marry a second time. She has been living a blissful life out of the spotlight.
