Niecy Nash and her husband, Jay Tucker, have called it quits.
On Wednesday on Instagram, the couple released a statement saying they will go their separate ways after eight years of marriage.
“We believe in the beauty of truth. Always have. Our truth is that in this season of our lives, we are better friends than partners in marriage,” they wrote. “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. Niecy Nash + Jay Tucker.”
The “Claws” actress and the electrical engineer got engaged in 2010 and tied the knot at the Church Estate Vineyard in Malibu in May 2011.
The same year she married Tucker, the “Reno 911!” alum told People it is “never too late” to fall in love.
She exclaimed, “There’s a lot of women out there, some of whom are my age who’ve never been married and some who have been married and would like to be married again but think their ship has sailed, and I’m like, ‘Oh no, honey, let Miss Niecy show you it is never too late for love!’”
The thespian was previously married to Don Nash, with whom she has three children.
This year at the Emmys, Niecy was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role in the Netflix miniseries “When They See Us.”
