Broadway Star Ben Vereen Allegedly Carried On Two Marriages For 36 Years — Inside The Legal Nightmare!
Yikes! What a legal MESS!
According to People Magazine, broadway legend Ben Vereen spent thirty-six years married to two different women. The revelation came to light after his first wife Andrea Vereen went to collect social security and found out a woman named Nancy Burner had been collecting her cash for years.
Obviously, Andrea looked into the situation and made a shocking discovery regarding her martial status. While the woman thought she and the Pippin star ended their marriage FIFTY-TWO YEARS ago, she sadly learned this was not the case.
Apparently Mr. Vereen intentionally or unintentionally failed to divorce Andrea like he said he would all those years ago. The actor then went on to marry Burner in 1976, a union which lasted until 2012.
Andrea's lawyer explained to the mag:
"Mr. Vereen told her years ago they were divorced. But when she applied for Social Security, she found out that not only are they not divorced, but that some other woman is collecting under his name."
Dayum… this sounds like Divorce Court's wet dream!
Following the scorned woman's discovery, Ben FINALLY filed for divorce:
