The TV star made her acting debut at the tender age of six, while she was still focused on becoming a professional dancer.

Unfortunately, their relationship lasted only eight months, and although they became estranged in June 2010, their divorce was finalized the following year on May 13, 2011.
Although the couple cited irreconcilable differences as the reason their marriage broke up, the word on the street was that Fred was unfaithful; another version of the story cited Scientology as the main reason for their divorce.
