Sesame street dad Gordon dumps his wife of 40 years for a younger woman

Roscoe Orman, who played the kind and nurturing “dad” Gordon Robinson on the popular children’s show Sesame Street, shacked up with Sharon Orman (pictured above), for 40 years. Roscoe wasn’t married to Sharon per se but after 40 years of living together, such an arrangement is considered a common law union.

After a life together and four children, Sharon claims Roscoe has left her “destitute” and has filed for spousal support after she alleges Roscoe also dumped her for a younger woman.

Sharon, who even took Roscoe’s name, argues she’s entitled to spousal support, and has filed a complaint against Roscoe in New Jersey Superior Court. She states they were “living together as husband and wife for almost 40 years,” and she was named as his wife on mortgages, deeds and tax filings.

Sharon’s lawyer Charles P. Cohen told us: “For more than 39 years, Sharon served as a homemaker and mother, dedicating her life to Roscoe and their four children. She has no savings or financial security, and has now been left homeless and financially destitute as Mr. Orman has left her for a younger woman, without providing any means of support.”

In addition, Roscoe Orman had another child with another woman while they were together and is now married to Kimberley Lamarque, whom he wed in December 2012.

Sharon and Roscoe’s children are now adults and the state of New Jersey, which is where they lived does honor common law marriage in a court of law.

  1. See this is why a woman should never depend on a man solely as far as fiances are concerned. I mean what was she thinking? She wasn’t even married? And she supported him that much?

  2. She AZZ OUT, there ain’t no common law marriage in the state of New Jersey. Sorry he left you for a pretty young thang, but you ain’t entitled to not nan nothing. That’s the consequences for staying with a man for 40 years without the benefits of marriage.

      No what is not right was her sitting like a fool for 40 years. I mean her momma or daddy or somebody did not tell her any better than this right here? What’s not right is she did not care enough about herself to put money away, and/or at least have some type of contract that gets her some funding.

  19. His wife has more rights than she does and she’s the one who spat out the kids. If this man dies tomorrow, the wife can (and will) take everything, including any residuals. Sure, his estate has to be split with the kids, but um Miss 40something still gets nothing. Her kids will have to take care of her with their shares. Tisk tisk.

    I would be so hurt if I didn’t think to make it official and protect my main asset, ME, by marrying the basturd after kid 2 was born for sure. All these years wasted; SMH!

  29. She probably expected this man to take care of her for the rest of her life. Yes she raised their kids but he took care of that ass (assuming pretty damn good since ive never heard of her before today). When the last kid left the house (assuming they all left) she probably didnt complete not one job/college application to make her self-sufficient. He was looking at her like “sooooooooo when was u gonna get up get out and do something” and she never did.
