More On: Kenan Thompson Kenan Thompson and Wife Christina Split After 11 Years of Marriage Kenan Thompson: Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson ‘went by a bit fast’ ‘SNL’ cast’s emotional moments during the show spark rumors of departure
Kenan Thompson got rid of his wedding ring after his breakup with wife Christina Evangeline.
The “Saturday Night Live” star was the master of ceremonies for the star-studded grand opening of the Hard Rock Hotel in Times Square on Thursday night and seemed unfazed by the tumult in his personal life, witnesses tell Page. Six exclusively.
“He looked like he was having a lot of fun,” says a spy. “He was the master of ceremonies at the beginning of the show before John Legend performed and brought his drink on stage and kept saying that he was just ‘chilling’.”
We’re told Legend, 43, arrived onstage about 40 minutes after it was scheduled to start, so Thompson, 44, “didn’t talk about anything like he was stalling” in a hilarious manner before introducing the key speakers of the evening.

Thompson kept his sunglasses on tight throughout the event and at the after party, where he was seen chatting with Mayor Eric Adams, Cara Delevingne, Vanessa Hudgens, Legend and more stars.
Almost always with a drink in hand, the “All That” alum was heard telling a fellow attendee how he was doing “good.”

Page Six confirmed in early April that Thompson and Evangeline, 33, were splitting after 11 years of marriage. They share two daughters, Georgia, 7, and Gianna, 3, and focus on co-parenting.
The “Kenan & Kel” alum and the interior designer married in November 2011 in the Arctic Room of the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
