The Garcelle Beauvais Mike Nilon relationship
Garcelle and Mike got married on 12 May 2001. Garcelle wanted to start a family with Nilon, but she discovered that she had fertility issues despite having a son, Oliver, with her first husband, Hollywood producer Daniel Saunders.
It took five long years of treatments before Garcelle and Mike welcomed their twins, Jax Joseph Nilon and Jaid Thomas Nilon (born October 18, 2007).
Although Garcelle thought that she and Mike were living a perfect life, a storm was brewing in paradise. In 2010, Garcelle discovered that Nilon had been cheating on her for five years (in their nine-year marriage).
The devastated Garcelle then sent a blistering email to her husband's colleague at Creative Artists Agency. She wrote in the email titled "Tiger Woods/Jesse James/Mike Nilon:"
"What do they have in common . . . I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some s**t in Chicago. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don't deserve this!"
That email soon got leaked to the press.
Garcelle then filed for divorce in May 2010, citing irreconcilable differences in court documents obtained by E! News. The same month, she revealed to E! News that she had no regrets about sending the email to Mike's CAA colleagues:
"I was angry... and no, I don't regret it,"
As for the "other woman," Garcelle revealed that she didn't know anything about her, including whether her relationship with Nilon continued after she filed for divorce:
"I have no idea what happened. I was devastated, so I didn't care what happened to her...My priority was taking care of my children, and now I feel like it's my time.
In December 2019, Garcelle went public with her relationship with screenwriter Michael Elliot, but in February 2020, she confirmed on Instagram that she was single again.
Mike Nilon is a producer and talent agent, but he is mostly known as Garcelle Beauvais ex husband. His marriage to the actress ended when Garcelle found out that he had been cheating on her for five years. Despite their rather public split, the two are now amicable and co-parent their children.
