Katharine McPhee Divorces After Cheating Scandal

American Idol season 5 runner-up Katharine McPhee has officially filed for divorce from husband Nick Cokas. Katharine was caught in a cheating scandal late last year after she was photographed kissing married Smash director Michael Morris.


The director and his wife, actress Mary McCormack, have reportedly reconciled for the time being. Katharine and her husband, however, have apparently decided to call it quits for good.

“After six years of marriage, and having been separated for the past year, Katharine McPhee has filed for a dissolution of marriage from Nick Cokas,” a rep for the singer and actress told People. “The two have an amicable relationship and will remain friends. They ask that people respect their privacy during this time.”

While her marriage may have gone cold, Katharine’s career is heating up again with a brand new starring role in a drama series called Scorpion, premiering this fall on CBS.
