NEW YORK (CBS) Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon has filed for divorce from husband Mike Nilon after almost nine years of marriage, a month after she publicly accused him of cheating.
E! Online reports that Beauvais-Nilon officially filed for divorce on May 10. The court papers cite "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
The actress is seeking joint custody of the couple's twin sons, 2-year-olds Jax and Jaid. She also has son Oliver, 19, from a previous marriage.
In April, Beauvais-Nilon publicly accused her husband of cheating on her. She sent an angry e-mail to Nilon's colleagues at the Creative Arts Agency, where he works as an agent, and compared him to Tiger Woods and Jesse James.
"I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some slut in Chicago. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don't deserve this!" the actress wrote, according to the New York Post.
Last week, the actress told the website that she was "taking it one day at a time" in the aftermath of her husband's alleged infidelity.
"I'm learning how strong I am," she said.
