Niecy Nash announces divorce from Jay Tucker

My sister from another mister, Niecy Nash, has announced the sad news that she and hubby Jay Tucker are calling it quits.

My “Claws” star have been married since 2011.

“We believe in the beauty of truth. Always have,“ began the note from Nash on Instagram. “Our truth is that in this season of our lives, we are better friends than partners in marriage. Our union was such a gorgeous ride. And as we go our separate ways now, we feel fortunate for the love we share — present tense. Thank you all out there for your support of us as a couple over the last eight years. We are grateful.”

The split is largely due to the couple spending extended time apart while Nash worked on “Claws.” Tucker reportedly also had a problem with Nash’s more graphic scenes on the show. Happens all the time in show biz.

“Niecy got a brand new body right before she went to film “Claws” down in New Orleans and that’s when their troubles began,” claims the source. “Jay was really uncomfortable with her graphic sex scenes on the show and that made their problems worse. They were living in two different cities and Jay expressed he didn’t like his wife being in New Orleans while he was in LA.”
