Friday Night Lights Star LaMarcus Tinker and Wife File For Divorce
Yet another Hollywood couple is calling it quits. Former Friday Night Lights star LaMarcus Tinker and fellow actress Shari Butler-Tinker filed joint petitions to end their two-year marriage on February 28.
If you missed LaMarcus in FNL, you might remember him as Shane Tinsley — Mercedes Jones’ (Amber Riley) high school football-playing boyfriend on Glee. And for those Cougar Town fans out there, you might recall that the 23-year-old actor played Kevin on the ABC/TBS series. But let’s get back to the troubling news.
From the sound of things, there won’t be any money talks for this soon-to-be-split couple. LaMarcus only collects $2100 a month in royalties now that he hasn’t been on TV since 2012, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. Apparently, back when he was booking solid TV roles, LaMarcus was bringing in a nice $7200 a week.
TMZ also reports that LaMarcus’ wife, an actress and dancer, only brings in $163 a month. How is that even possible?
Since the two have filed jointly and there’s obviously not much money to fight over, hopefully this divorce will be a quick one for LaMarcus and Shari.
