She alleged Jason committed adultery in new legal papers acquired by TMZ, and she listed them as one of the factors leading to their breakup.
The friction and conflict in their marriage, according to Jason’s estranged wife, made it unworkable. She also claims she can no longer live with Jason due to his brutal treatment of her.
Jason, who is best known for his role as Tommy Oliver in the “Power Rangers” series, wed Tammie in May 2003.
Jason’s ex-wife was requesting that the court give her the majority of their assets, which include a car and their Texas home.
A week before the official announcement, Tammie left a mysterious Instagram comment about fresh starts and cutting out “wrong people,” who’ve hurt you, from your life.
According to reports, Jason received the divorce papers over the weekend when he was in Texas for a Comic Con event.
Who was Jason David Frank?
Jason David Frank is an American actor and mixed martial artist born on September 4, 1973. Frank is best known for playing Tommy Oliver in the Power Rangers series.
Power Rangers career
The Green Ranger, Tommy Oliver, was portrayed by Frank. He acted in the 14 episodes, allotted for the season. He was brought back as the White Ranger and the new team leader due to the popularity of the character.
Before being called back to Power Rangers, Frank was meant to play the lead role of Adam Steele in VR Troopers (formerly known as “Cybertron”). He shot a pilot episode for the show. Frank and Brad Hawkins claim that the initial plan for Hawkins’ character on Power Rangers was to take the place of Tommy Oliver as the White Ranger.
Frank was reinstated, with Tommy Oliver taking over the White Ranger role due to Tommy Oliver’s popularity among Ranger fans. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers changed their name to Power Rangers Zeo after three seasons. The shift is a component of the annual Ranger suit change to coincide with the Super Sentai series’ annual update.

Frank’s persona evolved into the Red Zeo Ranger (also called Zeo Ranger V). His character became the first Red Turbo Ranger in Power Rangers Turbo the following year. Frank and his co-stars Johnny Yong Bosch, Nakia Burrise, and Catherine Sutherland were replaced as they decided to leave the cast in the middle of the season

Jason then played the Black Dino Ranger in Power Rangers Dino Thunder in 2004. Frank always appeared as the Black Dino Ranger while wearing long sleeves to hide his arm tattoos. This also applied to “Forever Red” of “Wild Force.”
For Douglas Sloan, playing the Black Dino Ranger was a favor. He has jokingly remarked that while Saban and Disney are “both the same, they’re cheap,” he was thrilled with the Dino Thunder production team.
In the season finale of Power Rangers Super Megaforce, Frank returned as Tommy Oliver, who served as the episode’s Green Ranger.
