Before Niecy and Jessica were married in August 2020, Niecy was actually married twice over 17 years. In 1994, she married her first husband, Don Nash, whose name she kept and who was a pastor.

In her February 2020 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon speech, Niecy spoke about both of her ex-husbands and explained that she lost a lot following her split from husband number one.

“With that divorce, I lost my husband, my pastor, and my church, just like that,” Niecy shared.

Niecy’s second husband, Jay Tucker, was an electrical engineer. She had divorced Don in 2007 and didn’t marry Jay until 2011, but that marriage ended in 2020. Niecy also opened up about Jay in her speech and explained that, although her family couldn’t see on the outside how tough their marriage was, she knew she had to do something about it for the sake of her own happiness.

“The untethering from my family’s beliefs, the internet’s expectations. and my marriage ending caused me so much pain,” she said in her speech. “But what about my happiness?”

When she and Jay split, Niecy released a statement, which said they parted as friends and would remain friends, as they are better suited for that kind of relationship rather than marriage.
