Truth be told, one of the major reasons why couples divorce is infidelity. Such is the case for former NYPD Blue actress, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilson. Just before their nine-year wedding anniversary, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon gave her allegedly cheating husband Mike Nilon a special gift: divorce papers.
The actress-model officially filed for divorce on May 10, citing irreconcilable differences. Per court documents, the parties have been separated since April 9, 2010.
But just last week, the mom of two seemed unsure as to how she would proceed with her marriage. “I’m taking it one day at a time, and I’m learning how strong I am,” she told E! News when asked how’s she dealing. “I don’t know…I have kids, so I don’t know.”
One thing she was certain of: having no regrets about exposing her husband’s cheating via an email blast to his CAA coworkers, in which she compared him to Jesse James and Tiger Woods. “I was angry…and no, I don’t regret it,” she said. Turns out, Mike Nilon was allegedly having a 5-year affair with another woman in Chicago.
Beauvais-Nilson is seeking joint legal and joint physical custody of their 2-year-old twin sons, Jax and Jaid.
