Actress LisaRaye McCoy and her husband, Turks and Caicos Premier Michael Misick, are separating after two years of marriage.
In a statement, Misick, 42, said, "I am announcing that I am separated from LisaRaye McCoy-Misick. I am committed to dissolving the marriage amicably. I believe that this is a private matter and will have no further comments. I hope that our privacy will be respected."
The statement comes as the FBI is investigating Misick for assaulting a friend of McCoy’s earlier this year. Misick has taken to the Turks and Caicos airwaves to deny the charges.
In 2006, the couple married
in an $1.5 million beachside wedding in front of stars such as Vivica A. Fox, DaBrat and Jasmine Guy. Reception music was provided by R&B duo Ashford and Simpson.
At the time, LisaRaye, now 41, told PEOPLE, "It's like a fairy tale, and I want to live happily ever after."
