Martin Lawrence and Tichina Arnold brought laughter to many homes over the 90s with their comic rivalry in Martin’s sitcom from 1992 to 1997.
In the sitcom, Tichina played Pam, a friend to Martin’s wife Gina, played by Tisha Campbell.
Tichina carried her role so well that people have never stopped screaming Pam at her whenever they encounter her, as she narrated to Kelly Clarkson.
The highlight of the sitcom involved Pam and Martin’s scenes where they often made jokes about each other.
Martin refuted claims that the show was canceled and revealed in an interview with GQ magazine that he ended the show after Tisha Campbell filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him.
The sarcastic mockery between Pam and Martin often divided viewers on whether they liked or resented each other.
A section of viewers believed the two were in love but sought to mask their feelings by roasting each other.
Other viewers couldn’t understand how the two could be in love and yet troll each other mercilessly at every opportunity they got.
Also, Martin and Gina were a couple, and it didn’t make sense that Pam could betray her best friend Gina and fall in love with his man.
Since the show never depicted the two as lovers for the five seasons it aired, have they dated in real life?
After Martin’s show ended in 1997, Pam and Martin were reunited in Big Momma’s House, a movie released in 2000.
Their interaction onscreen led to speculation that the two were more than co-actors.
Speculations regarding whether they dated never stopped, even after the two publicly dated different people.
So, have Pam and Martin ever dated?
Not really. There hasn’t been concrete evidence from the two or close sources confirming that the two have ever been an item.
It has all been a fan’s theory that the two have dated before, but that hasn’t been the case.
The two have, however, maintained a close connection from their earlier years of acting together, making it safe to say they have remained friends and nothing more.
Tichina, Martin, and Tisha Campbell have all remained connected, as was evident in the Martin: The Reunion special that aired on BET last year, celebrating 30 years since the show premiered.
It is also worth noting that while Martin catapulted the cast into Hollywood fame, they have individually worked hard to maintain their craft, evident in the number of projects they have undertaken over the years.
