Wayne Brady

Files for Divorce

7/3/2007 7:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former talk show host Wayne Brady is singing the blues today. TMZ has learned that the "Whose Line is it Anyway?" star's wife, Mandie Taketa Brady, has filed for divorce.

Wayne Brady
The divorce documents, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, cite irreconcilable differences for the split. Taketa is also requesting join custody of their daughter, 4-year-old Maile Masako Brady.

Papers indicate that the Bradys actually split a year ago, in April '06, but did not officially file for divorce until today. The two were married in 1999.

A rep for Brady told TMZ "After a prolonged period of separation, Wayne Brady and his wife Mandie are divorcing, citing irreconcilable differences. The split is very amicable and they continue to remain the best of friends and committed parents."

Are married celebs having a pre-Independence Day run on divorce court today?
Are the filing for divorce today because they don't want any domestic fireworks to ruin tomorrow's fireworks?

I remember when Amy Sedaris filed for divorce against Myron Kempelstein after that nasty stun gun incident back in 1995. The headlines! Never got to the bottom of how that stun gun got dropped into her bubble bath -- and while she was in it. Those Greeks certain do have the tempers.

CA Girl @ 7:11 PM: I think that the filing fees have been reduced for Independence Day so there is a run on the courts.

What the hell tmz? Are you guys just making this up? This is the third divorce in that past week and were not even in the middle of the week. Wow! But than again I didn't even know Cris Angel was married nor did I know Jackass guy was married either.

I guess they keep it real secret from everyone. No one why there marriages didn't work out.

Can anyone stay together?

DOES ANY HOLLYWOOD MARRIAGE LAST?

You bet it does NOT. This is NO news.
I hate the commentary from the person who wrote, Hope he has a prenup.
How do you know that he did NOt screw around?
Than she deserve's every penny of his money.
Its seems like it is always against the women when I guy write's in about divorce.

By the way, he didn't file for divorce -- she did. She is listed as the petitioner, he's the respondent.

Doesn't TMZ have a legal department to check these facts?

First of all, divorce is out of control with everyone in this country (not just Hollywood). It is sad. Funny how everyone seems to care about the money. Does anyone think about the children in a divorce? I like Wayne Brady and I hope that he and his wife can have a "friendly" divorce and remember that the most important person in this tragedy is their daughter. And whoever was the jerk that said a black man shouldn't marry a white woman (even though Wayne's wife is Asian), I really feel sorry for you. Racism can work both ways!
