Gary wed Emilio’s mother.
Kenya was previously married, had a son, and divorced before meeting Gary. Gary and Kenya tied the knot on July 19, 2003. They originally met at a comedy club where Gary was playing over a decade ago. They dated for many years before deciding to be married.
Emilio has two half-brothers. Emilio is the oldest child of his mother, Kenya, and his father, Emilio Toliver Sr. His mother and Gary had two children, a boy, and a girl after they married. They had their first child, Austin Owen, on November 27, 2000, and their only daughter on July 3, 2002. Kennedy Owen was her given name. Austin seems to be following in his father’s footsteps.
He inherited his father’s sense of humor and has done stand-up at Tommy T’s Comedy Clubs. Emilio loves and cares for his half-siblings as if they were his own, and his father, Gary, often shares photos of them altogether. Gary and Kenya make certain that their children have cordial and loving relationships with one another. We can see their love and devotion in all of the photographs they share on their individual social media accounts.
The ideal couple of 18 years announced their breakup in March, shocking admirers. According to Kenya, she sought divorce because Gary cheated on her. She made a comment that seemed to be aimed at a lady she thinks to be Gary’s mistress. In the post, she disclosed that despite knowing Gary’s mistress had a wife and children, and the mistress herself has a kid, she didn’t care and continued to date Gary.
She also accused her of being a golddigger who is just interested in her ex-money, and husband’s and she said that the mistress would not get any money. Gary had also taken holidays with his mistress to the Bahamas and Florida, according to Kenya. According to a court filing, Kenya has requested $44000 a month since it is the amount Gary previously supplied to her. She is devastated by Gary’s activities and claims she gave up her job to support him just to be cheated on in return.
Gary’s reaction to Kenya’s accusations
Gary kept silent for a while after Kenya leveled many charges against him. However, he broke his silence and gave his side of the tale when appearing on The Breakfast Club. He said he was the one who left first and who filed for divorce. He further said that the basis for the divorce was not adultery, but rather his dissatisfaction. He also claimed that in their 23 years together, he had left numerous times but had always remained for his children.
He also refuted Kenya’s claim that he was a slacker parent. He said that he was always present for his children and enjoyed being a father and that he never had his children take the bus, but instead drove them to school, picked them up, and never missed a birthday. He also said that he hasn’t talked to his children since he divorced his wife and the divorce process began.
Emilio Owen has been in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend, Taylor Patton. Taylor works at Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shields as an operations specialist.

They seem to be living together.
He comes from one of America’s most recognized and wealthy families. However, Emilio’s net worth is unknown, thus his stepfather has a $3 million net worth as of November 2022.
