Sounds as though Tamara Tunie is close to closing the book on this case.
The Law & Order: SVU star and her husband of almost 20 years, jazz musician Gregory Generet, have separated, E! News confirmed Tuesday.
They have not yet filed for divorce and the New York-based duo, who tied the knot in 1995, do not have children together. This was Tunie's second marriage; her first, to Greg Bouquett, ended in 1991.
The 55-year-old actress is best known for playing no-nonsense medical examiner Dr. Melinda Warner on SVU, and she has also had prominent roles on As the World Turns, NYPD Blue, 24, The Good Wife and The Red Road. Her big-screen credits include Wall Street and Flight.
Talking to Essence in 2012 in a joint interview with her husband, Tunie credited, among other things, his-and-hers home offices and some pre-marital counseling for their relationship's longevity.
