The native of Las Vegas, Rutina Wesley, was married to her husband, Jacob Fishel, in 2005.
But after spending eight years together, Wesley filed for divorce on August 16, 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.
Rutina had studied at Juilliard School. While pursuing her higher studies, she met her ex-husband Jacob. The two were in the same school studying the same course.
Over a period of time, they dated and fell in love, which led to their marriage in 2005 after their graduation.
In a 2010 interview with Essence Magazine, Wesley said that if they can spend four years together during college obviously can spend a lifetime together. However, the storm of time can change anything.
As reported, the couple's divorce was finalized in 2014. But Wesley was a fighter and unwilling to give up her hard-earned money for nothing.
She asked the judge to decline any claim that Jacob made for spousal support.
Rutina Wesley and Jacob Fishel had no children during their long married life. It’s probably because Rutina was at the peak of her career, and her desire to achieve more stopped her from being a mother.
Before entering the TV series, Wesley had done a few movies but is most famous for her character in True Blood, which earned her the big bucks. Her ex-husband is also an actor but didn’t acquire fame as much as Wesley did.
