Trina Braxton (pictured right), a member of the famed Braxton singing clan and co-star in the reality show “Braxton Family Values,” is reportedly being challenged by her estranged husband, Gabriel Adrian-Solis (pictured), as they muddle through their impending divorce. According to TMZ, Gabriel still feels they are in love and is requesting more time to fix his broken union.
Trina and Gabriel have been married for more than 10 years, and although their marriage did not produce any children, he helped raise her two boys from a previous relationship. Trina filed for divorce from Gabriel earlier this year on the grounds that the marriage was irretrievably broken.
On her reality show, Trina accused Gabriel of being a serial cheater. Trina also admitted to having an affair, and her confession — as well as her adulterous relationship with a member of her band — also played out on the small screen.
Reportedly, Gabriel is not ready to walk away from his marriage and wholeheartedly believes that he still has a chance with Trina. Gabriel has allegedly filed documents in a Georgia court to petition the divorce and is asking that a judicial declaration be made based upon the possibility of a reconciliation.
