Chris Tucker and Azja Pryor Co-Parenting Their Son

After ending their marriage, Tucker and Pryor mutually agreed to co-parent their only child, which now seems they did pretty well. For example, with the support of his parents, Destin moved to Atlanta to study film at Morehouse College in 2017.

It was a proud moment, especially for Tucker, who believed his son's decision to go to Morehouse made all the sense in the world. Not just that, Destin was following in his father's footsteps by studying film at the famous college. He aims to become a film director.

This year in May, the son of the famed actor took to Instagram to announce he had finally completed his college graduation. He also thanked his parents, writing,

Over these past 4 years, I have absorbed valuable life lessons about navigating through this world as a black man. There were certainly times of doubt, anger, and confusion, but thanks to God, family, and friends. I made it through!

Celebrating the special occasion, Tucker and Pryor were even snapped together during Destin's graduation party. Pryor was the one to share the snaps from the family reunion on her Instagram.

Who Is Chris Tucker Dating Now?

Tucker has remained quite secretive about his personal life since his divorce from Pryor. But he has been linked to several divas through the years, including Vanessa Mendoza, Gelila Asres, and Nia Long.

There were also rumors that the Atlanta native had been dating singer-songwriter, India Arie, for 13 years, circa 2020. However, the rumors were cleared when Arie took to her Twitter to address them.

In one tweet, she shared a GIF image, laughing at the speculations stating she was dating Tucker for 13 years. Similarly, in her June 5, 2020 tweet, she revealed that she was not dating him but admitted going on a couple of dates with him in the past.

Check out the tweet from where the rumors started and Arie's response:

Besides, Tucker once revealed that he was not dating a girlfriend or a partner during a video interview on Big Boy TV in July 2015.

"Are you still dating, right now?" the interviewer asked, to which he replied, "You know what, no, I'm not dating right now."

On the other hand, his ex-wife Pryor is presently happily married to Cherif A Ndiaye, a personal trainer and life coach from Senegal. The two also share a 4-year-old daughter, Iman.
