Comedian Martin Lawrence has had a rough month.
After receiving news that his sitcom was canned by CBS and then calling it quits with his wife of 2 years, Shamicka — his friends are worried that the recent turn of events may set the actor off once again.
The National Enquirer reports:
MARTIN LAWRENCE is at the end of his rope and telling pals he has “nothing to live for.”
The onetime sitcom and movie star is shattered that his career has all but ground to a halt and devastated that his marriage to Shamicka Lawrence, the mother of his two children, has crashed and burned, say sources.
Lawrence, 47, filed for divorce on April 25, and just two weeks later, CBS shot down the new sitcom he was developing.
A pal says Lawrence was rocked by the rejection and reduced to a “Zombie-like state of mind.”
“He said something like, ‘My career and life are over, and I have nothing to live for.’ We’re worried he may do something stupid.
“Martin is embarrassed, hurt and angry that nobody wants him anymore.”
Lawrence was once one of the top comic actors around. Besides his smash sitcom “Martin,” which ran from 1992 to 1997, he also starred in several big-screen hits including the “Bad Boys” and “Big Momma” series.
