“Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated,” he says on “The Doctors”, slated to air May 9th.
Beatie also said he had undergone a final female-to-male gender reassignment surgery, but his wife hadn’t been privy to that. “Nancy hasn’t seen the new me yet,” Beatie says.
