The reason for his separation from Jennifer after 19 years of marriage was irreconcilable differences. She requested spousal support, child support and the custody of their minor son. It is assumed that Tim’s actions would have been the reason for the divorce. In 1994, he was accused of physical harassment of a teenage girl. He paid 150 thousand dollars as a fine. She was an extra on the sets of his movie, ‘Little big league’. It was said that he invited her into his trailer and gave her a few drinks. They both kissed and he asked her to get intimate with him, but, she denied it. She said that he is married and has kids. Tim responded that they left him a long time ago and he said that he is alone. She complained to the production company, but, they fired her. This incident happened when he was married to Jennifer. She never commented on the  actions of her husband. There were a lot of similar cases that turned against him. These might be the reason for his separation from Jen. It was a costly separation that caused a major foreclosure.

Again in 2012, he was accused of misbehaving with his date in public. It was said that he was on a date with her when he was already seeing Melissa. The date was going well and they started kissing. Then, he started making improper moves against her consent. She informed the police nearby, about the incident and they started investigating.  This accusation against her boyfriend did not matter for Mellisa. He dated his girlfriend, Melissa for many years before they got engaged. Both of them were married twice before. Beyond all the known affairs and harassment news, they got married.

He never commented on any of those rumors and the girls he was engaged or married to when these incidents happen also do not comment on it. He talked about his marital life with Melissa and said that it was a balanced relationship between them.

His first separation from Radha is not known to public. The reason, separation settlement and other details are kept away from the media. She never talked about the relationship, separation and other problems with Tim to the media. Since both kept mute about the problems, the reason is still unknown. He was never in a relationship with anyone else other than these three women. Though he was accused of having a lot of affairs he was never was in a romantic relationship. His relationship with his ex-wives are not known to the public, till date.
