2008-08-14 - Michael Misick and LisaRaye McCoyAfter weeks of being the main topic on urban blogs for a rift in their relationship, actress LisaRaye McCoy and her husband, Turks and Caicos Premier Michael Misick, announced that they are officially separating after two years of marriage.

In a statement, 42-year-old Misick 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 news comes as the FBI investigates Misick for allegedly assaulting a female friend of McCoy's earlier this year. Just days after the allegations were made, the Premier issued a televised statement that "strongly and categorically" denied the charges, reports LiveSteez. Reports said the woman in question was visiting the actress and staying at the Misick mansion.

The break-up is rumored to be credited to a fling with BET VJ Rosci, who was spotted at the Turks and Caicos Music Festival with Misick, and later rumored to have stayed at his home.

In 2006, the couple married in a $1.5 million beachside wedding, with guests such as Vivica A. Fox, DaBrat and Jasmine Guy in attendance.

At the time, LisaRaye told PEOPLE, "It's like a fairy tale, and I want to live happily ever after."

Looks like the fairy tale is over.
