One woman got the shock of a lifetime on "The Real" this morning, after she learned -- in front of a studio television audience -- that her long lost half-sister was none other than guest host Tisha Campbell-Martin. The woman, Ellen Lindsey, was brought on the show under the guise of connecting with a sibling she had never met before, but had no idea her sister would be the "Martin" and "House Party" actress. Sitting down with the show's hosts and a genealogist, Lindsey said she only learned she had been adopted last year, when she was just 49 years old. After a DNA test confirmed she was related to a woman looking for her, Lindsey agreed to finally meet her at the taping. Not telling her that she was, in fact, the sister in question at first, Tisha asked Ellen how she felt about meeting her family member for the first time. Then second, I would be like, I hope she likes me," said Campbell-Martin. What would you want to tell your sister? I'm your sister! The two then hugged and broke down in tears. After a commercial break, the two were joined by Ellen's full-blood brother, Duane, who was actually the one who spearheaded the search for her.
Tisha Campbell-Martin is accusing her estranged husband, Duane Martin , of years of domestic abuse and says she kept quiet for years in order to protect Duane and their children. Tisha filed on January 24 for a domestic violence restraining order against Martin, claiming he has been physically abusive in their relationship for years. The actress says the most recent abuse happened this past December, when he allegedly "grabbed me by my arm to try to get me in the bedroom," after claiming their son was sick. In an affidavit, Tisha says the physical abuse began months after their wedding in , claiming, "I had been emotionally, mentally and physically abused. I kept things hidden from my family his family our friends and the public, save a few very close friends and people who may have witnessed, over the past two decades, filing it away in the back of my mind to protect my family, the community and the pubIic's persona of my spouse. Tisha says she always believed she was a "strong woman" by keeping the alleged abuse under wraps, but now admits she's "scared," and says she owes it to her children to speak the truth about her relationship.
By Adam S. Levy For Mailonline. Tisha Campbell-Martin says estranged husband Duane Martin has 'been emotionally, mentally and physically' abusive in her successful bid for a domestic violence restraining order against him. The Martin actress, 50, told a Los Angeles court January 24 that Martin, 53, has been abusive over the course of their year marriage, and that she's had to report his actions to police as recently as January 12, according to court docs acquired by The Blast. Duane 'grabbed me by my arm to try to get me in the bedroom' last month, Campbell-Martin told the court, which set an order commanding Campbell-Martin to remain yards away from her until another hearing in the matter slated for next month.
