Right after Niecy Nash announced she was splitting with her husband after eight years of marriage, Black Twitter reminded the “Claws” star that she once said “a BJ a day, keeps the divorce attorney away.” Unfortunately, it looks like her regular jaw action wasn’t enough to spare their union.
A few days ago, Niecy and Jay released this statement confirming their seperation:
“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. 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 statement was amicable, perhaps evidence that the two really did have a happy bond while it lasted. Niecy released a book chalked full of relationship advice two years after they jumped the broom in 2013, when she gave a controversial tip about keeping a man happy. In the chapter of her book titled, “Stomach Full, Penis Empty: A Woman’s Guide to a Happy Marriage” she told her readers that “a BJ a day keeps the divorce away.”
No one knows exactly what caused a rift in the couple’s marriage, but sources claim the 47-year-old’s spicy sex scenes on “Claws,” may have caused some tension.
According to an insider who spoke to The Daily Mail, Niecy’s hot new looks combined with their long distance relationship made the two grow apart.
“Niecy got a brand new body right before she went to film Claws down in New Orleans and that’s when their troubles began. Jay was really uncomfortable with her graphic sex scenes on the show and that made their problems worse,” the source explained. Adding, “Jay was really uncomfortable with her graphic sex scenes on the show and that made their problems worse.”
Well, it’s definitely hard to give fellatio from thousands of miles away. Here’s what Twitter had to say about their split:
