Tony Award winner Ben Vereen divorcing wife

NEW YORK (AP) " Tony Award winner Ben Vereen is divorcing his first wife " again.

The New York Post ( ) reports Vereen claims he divorced his first wife, Andrea, in the 1970s but she's saying the divorce was never official and she only learned about it when she filed for Social Security.

The two were in a Brooklyn court Thursday to hash out the details.

After leaving his first wife, the Post says court records show Vereen married Nancy Bruner in 1976 and filed to divorce her in 2012.

Andrea's lawyer, Harold Mayerson, said the second marriage wasn't legal because Vereen was still married to Andrea, who's asking that Vereen pay for the divorce.

Vereen's attorney, John DiMascio, says nothing has been proven yet.

Vereen won best actor in the 1973 musical "Pippin."
