Krista filed for divorce from the rapper on Monday 22nd February in Los Angeles Superior Court, TMZ reports. The two married on 29th November 2014, hours before Xzibit was arrested in Laguna Beach, California, for two counts of DUI (Driving Under the influence).

Xzibit was driving in his silver Range Rover around 12:27 early Sunday morning when Laguna Beach, California, police noticed him driving at a “high rate of speed.”

“Another officer caught up to the vehicle and made a traffic stop,” according to a statement from Laguna Beach Captain Jason Kravetz to ABC News. “The officer contacted the driver and smelled alcohol. This started a driving under the influence investigation which ended with the arrest of Alvin Nathaniel Joiner.”
