Nooo! ‘Saved By The Bell’ star Lark Voorhies is throwing in the towel on her marriage to husband Jimmy Green, according to a new report. The actress has reportedly filed for divorce after just six months of marriage!
How awful! Lark Voorhies, 41, who wed her husband Jimmy Green, 32, back in April 2015 after just a year of dating, has officially called it quits on her marriage. The Saved By The Bell actress and music engineer haven’t even celebrated their one year anniversary yet, which makes us wonder what could have so gone wrong so quickly. Find out all the shocking details here!
This is shocking. Lark filed the documents on Oct. 19 in Pasadena, California, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause, the actress’s mother Patricia told People. “They can remain friends, but it’s best they sever their marriage ties,” said Tricia. “Lark is ready to move forward with her life and wishes him well with his life.”
Still, six months is a short-lived marriage even by Hollywood standards, and we can’t help by wonder what could have possibly gone wrong. As it turns out, it may have had something to do with Patricia herself! Jimmy allegedly called his marriage to Lark “a nightmare from the beginning,” blaming her mother for many of their issues, TMZ reports. In fact, the only reason Lark filed for divorce first was because he “didn’t know how to.”
Lark Voorhies’ Mom Granted Restraining Order Against Son-In-Law
The decision to end their marriage came after Lark allegedly defended her now-ex against her mother, who filed a restraining order against Jimmy in July 2015 just two months after the two had officially tied the knot. According to Patricia’s court filing, her son-in-law insisted on sleeping at her home, where Lark was living at the time, and was verbally abusive towards her. Patricia also claimed her daughter lived with her because she was “psychologically, mentally, and emotionally fragile,” which Lark later denied in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Patricia was also said to have known about the couple’s marriage, but choose not to attend.
Whoa. This is really crazy. It’s hard to believe that things could have escalated so quickly. After all, it was just six months ago that the SBTB actress wed her now estranged husband in a private ceremony in Las Vegas. The two reportedly met just one year earlier at a networking event in the Los Angeles area and immediately started dating.
