Singer/dancer/actor Ben Vereen, 65, filed for divorce from his wife, Nancy.
Court records in Los Angeles show Vereen filed the petition on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences, reports AP. He and Nancy Bruner Vereen wed in July 1976.
Vereen's acting credits range from Roots to Zoobilee Zoo to a guest stint on How I Met Your Mother. He won a Tony in 1973 for Pippin.
Vereen, who says he and Nancy separated in March, is asking a court to terminate his wife's ability to collect spousal support.
