Nye’s first marriage reportedly did not go too well, according to CBS.
He married Tindall in 2006, but filed to have the marriage annulled after only seven weeks. The marriage was then labeled invalid.
In 2007, Nye reportedly filed for a restraining order against Tindall after claims she broke into his home and stole several personal items and vandalized his garden.
She later said ‘stress and fatigue’ had clouded her judgment.
