Ben Vereen and his wife of 36 years are getting a divorce.

The actor and Nancy Bruner Vereen separated in March.

Court records in Los Angeles show Vereen filed the petition on Thursday, citing irreconcilable differences. The 65-year-old won a best actor in a musical Tony Award in 1973 for his role in Pippin, and he has appeared in numerous films and TV series.
