Who is Katharine McPhee's first husband?

In 2008, then 23-year-old McPhee married actor Nick Cokas, who was 19 years older than McPhee.

The two had an acrimonious split, and the dates each spouse claimed they separated on do not match up. In 2013, McPhee was spotted kissing Michael Morris, the director on her TV show Smash — who was married! 


At the time, her publicist claimed McPhee and Cokas had separated. Cokas claimed this was not the case at all. It took two years to settle their divorce, which only happened once the two agreed on the date that they separated on. 

McPhee paid dearly for her freedom. The courts awarded Cokas half of what McPhee earned during her two seasons on Smash, half of her $700,000 recording contract and half of any earnings of the songs she wrote and/or recorded during their marriage.

Cokas was also awarded spousal support in the amount of $400,000 per year. ​

"But it's kind of refreshing because I feel like I don't need to think about those societal 'this is the way you look.' I think men have different issues and different things to worry about," she added.
