Lark Voorhies Puts an End to Her Strange Marriage

Saved by the Bell star files for divorce six months after quickie Vegas wedding.

Published October 22, 2015

Lark Voorhies has filed for divorce from her husband, Jimmy Green, after six months of marriage. The Saved by the Bell alum, 41, and the music engineer met on Facebook and tied the knot in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Signs of trouble came early for the union, at least according to the actress's mother, Patricia Voorhies, who filed a restraining order against Green last June. According to Patricia, Green is a self-avowed member of the Bloods who routinely threw up gang signs during their family squabbles.

Patricia also said that Green had been crashing with his new wife at her mom's house for months, violating her rule to head home before lights out. As for why the newlyweds didn't have their own place, Patricia says it's because her daughter is mentally and emotionally fragile and under doctors' care.

Still, Voorhies defended herself and her relationship against her mother's accusations during a bizarre appearance on Entertainment Tonight last June. "He's not [taking advantage of me]," she said at the time. "We're selectively together for all the right reasons." She also added that she was "always mentally healthy," though to anyone watching the interview, it seemed otherwise.

According to TMZ, Voorhies has filed a motion asking a judge to bar any request for spousal support from Green.
