Actor Ben Vereen files for divorce from wife of 36 years
Broadway actor Ben Vereen has filed for divorce from his wife of 36 years, Nancy Bruner Vereen.

According to court records in Los Angeles, the Tony-winner filed for the petition on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences. His filing states that the pair separated in March. He married his wife in July 1976.


Vereen is asking a court to terminate his estranged wife's ability to collect spousal support.

The actor has appeared in numerous films and series including “Roots” and “How I Met Your Mother.”

His camp told Page Six in a statement: “My wife Nancy and I have been separated for 20 years. This divorce is merely a legal formality. She is the mother of my children. I will continue to support her financially and morally as I always have. Thank you for your well wishes and prayers.”
