Ben Vereen files for divorce from wife of 36 years

LOS ANGELES — Tony Award-winning actor Ben Vereen has filed for divorce from his wife of 36 years.

Court records in Los Angeles show Vereen filed the petition Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences. The actor-dancer married wife Nancy Bruner Vereen in July 1976, although his filing states the pair separated in March.

The 65-year-old won a best actor in a musical Tony Award in 1973 for his role in "Pippin" and he appeared in numerous films and television series. His acting credits vary from a role in the miniseries "Roots" and a guest stint on "How I Met Your Mother," as well as a Golden Globe nominated performance in the film "Funny Lady."

Vereen is asking a court to terminate his estranged wife's ability to collect spousal support.
