Cheyenne Jackson: Divorce From Monte Lapka 'Is A Sad Thing'

Actor Cheyenne Jackson stopped by SiriusXM's "The Frank DeCaro Show" late last week and opened up about his divorce from husband Monte Lapka.

Jackson, who is known for his guest starring roles on "30 Rock" and "Glee" as well as his work on Broadway, spoke highly of his ex, telling DeCaro that Lapka is "a wonderful man." He also revealed that he's sad about the split.

"Yeah, it is a sad thing. It's a sad thing anytime a relationship ends," he said. "We had a good long run, almost 13 years."

The actor also set the record straight about reports that he has gone off the deep end post-split by growing a mustache and getting a tattoo.

"I do have a mustache, but it's for the new Ira Sachs movie [Love is Strange] with Alfred Molina and Marissa Tomei and John Lithgow, so that's what that's for," he said. "I do have a new tattoo, and it's personal. I'm happy to tell now because it's out there, but you know, it's for my dad."

Jackson and Lapka married in 2011 after gay marriage was legalized in New York.

Jackson isn't the first "Glee" actor to go through a divorce. Jane Lynch announced her split from wife Lara Embry in July 2013, and Jessalyn Gilsig, who plays Will Schuster's ex-wife on the Fox hit, announced her divorce in October 2010.
