Usually when scandals break out about celebrity couples’ marriages, there are managers and publicists working hard to contain the celebrities’ image. In the case of Tichina Arnold though, it seems that she is the one who let the cat out of the bag and created the scandal about her marriage. Unfortunately for her and her husband, it seems their marriage is over after just three years and it seems to be ending on an ugly note.
According to BET.com:
Tichina Arnold is divorcing her husband, Rico Hines, and the split is far from amicable. The Martin star called it quits on her marriage after discovering her husband’s many infidelities, and TMZ reports she’s not keeping it quiet.
According to a source, Arnold discovered a sex tape of her husband and various other women, and upon learning of his cheating ways, she texted a clip from the tape to a group of confidantes with news that she’s filing for divorce.
“It’s over between Rico and I. This is where I part ways and all bets are off,” she wrote in the group message. And she’s not kidding around, either. “I can’t for the life of me understand why Rico would video himself f***ing ‘raw dog’ ONE of his MANY extraneous whores that ‘trick’ on him for his money,” she added.
Arnold added that she’s concerned about sexually transmitted diseases and that she plans to get tested soon. Yikes.
An official statement to People about the divorce from an Arnold source only says, “It’s a sordid tale,” while a rep for Hines tells TMZ, “This is a private and deeply personal matter between my wife and me, and I do not want to comment any further at this time.”
The Survivor’s Remorse actress and Hines, an assistant basketball coach for St. John’s University and, previously, the Golden State Warriors, married in 2012.
