Niecy Nash is divorcing her husband amid strain over living in different cities, her TV show’s graphic sex scenes and her sexy new look, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned. 

The 49-year-old comedian and actress quietly separated from Jay Tucker several months ago, putting up her Bell Canyon, California compound for sale for $1.2 million back in July. 

The two were married in Malibu in 2011 but their relationship has been rocky for two years, a source close to the couple said.

The insider said Nash’s full-body cosmetic surgery makeover and her ‘extreme career ambitions’ caused major tension in the marriage.

The source told DailyMail.com: 'Niecy got a brand new body right before she went to film Claws down in New Orleans and that's when their troubles began. Jay was really uncomfortable with her graphic sex scenes on the show and that made their problems worse'. Pictured: Nash playing character Desna Simms on TNT's Claws

DailyMail.com has reached out to Nash for statement and did not receive a response by time of publication. 

Nash, who was previously married to preacher Don Nash for 13 years until they divorced in 2007, was spending a chunk of time in New Orleans to star in TNT’s Claws, playing character Desna Simms. TNT announced earlier this month that Claws was renewed for its fourth and final season.

The source told DailyMail.com: ‘Niecy got a brand new body right before she went to film Claws down in New Orleans and that’s when their troubles began. 

‘Jay was really uncomfortable with her graphic sex scenes on the show and that made their problems worse. 

‘They were living in two different cities and Jay expressed he didn’t like his wife being in New Orleans while he was in LA.’  

When the comedy-drama had its big premiere in LA in June of 2017, Tucker didn’t attend because the couple had been fighting about the show. 

And while Tucker did attend Nash’s ceremony for her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the summer of 2018, he wasn’t by her side in September when she was nominated for Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie for her role in When They See Us. 

In fact, the once inseparable couple has been seen together less and less.

Tucker was last seen on Nash’s Instagram on Valentine’s Day in a throwback wedding picture and instead of loved up couple pictures, Nash now populates her feed with selfies, motivational quotes and photos of trips with her friends.

Nash appears to be occupying her new life as an almost-single woman vacationing with Oprah Winfrey and filmmaker Ava DuVernay (pictured together in LA in 2016) in Hawaii, and roller skating with her friend and former bridesmaid The View co-host Sherri Shepherd

The source said: ‘Niecy treated Jay like an American Express card, she never left home without him. She loved doting on her husband and bragging about how she had a man.

‘She would talk so much about her relationship and how she knew how to keep a man happy, when her relationship started to crumble it was embarrassing to her.’

Still, the insider doesn’t think Nash will stay single for long, explaining: ‘Niecy loves love and she loves being married. So don’t expect much grass to grow under her feet.

‘I’m certain she’ll be declaring that the third time is the charm and talking marriage again sometime in the near future.’

Nash is a self-professed relationship guru and has boasted about her matchmaking skills, shot a pilot for a late night relationship talk show and once quipped that giving your partner oral sex every day ‘keeps the divorce attorney away’. 

Nash had bragged about setting up Shepherd with her then-husband Lamar Sally, before the couple had a highly-contentious and public divorce after three years of marriage.

The insider said: ‘When it came to relationships, no one could tell Niecy Nash anything! She knew it all, had all the answers. 

‘She was adamant that she was going to be the female Steve Harvey as it pertained to relationships.’  

In 2013, Nash published a book called It’s Hard to Fight Naked, dishing out relationship advice.

Last year, Nash even shot a show pilot for TNT for a love and relationship themed late night talk show. 

Called Naked with Niecy Nash, the show featured Nash delivering relationship advice and talking about sex and romance with celebrity guests.

Nash even did an interview for Essence this past August where she gave out relationship advice. ‘A BJ a day keeps the divorce attorney away,’ she advised, talking about giving oral sex to a man. She then added: ‘I said what I said.’ 

In the same interview, Nash told the publication that she and Tucker didn’t fake their love for the sake of social media, explaining: ‘When they see us out in the public, we are exactly the way we are in a curated life on Instagram. 

‘People think that we like each other, and that’s because we do.’
