Actress Tichina Arnold reportedly sent a mass text message to friends and family announcing that her husband, Rico Hines, had been having unprotected sex with several women, TMZ reports.

TMZ reports Arnold even sent along a sex tape to prove as much.

"I can't for the life of me understand why Rico would video himself [f—king] 'raw dog' ONE of his MANY extraneous whores that 'trick' on him for his money," Arnold's mass text message allegedly read, according to TMZ.


Hines used to be the assistant basketball coach at St. John's University. He and Arnold got married in 2012.

"It's over between Rico and I," Arnold allegedly texted, explaining that this was where she was drawing the line in the sand. "This is where I part ways and all bets are off."

Arnold reportedly went on to name 20 women that she said Hines had slept with, calling them "extraneous Kim Kardashian wanna be's," TMZ reports. She expressed concern that she might have contracted a sexually transmitted disease and plans to get tested.

Hines' rep told TMZ: "This is a private and deeply personal matter between my wife and me, and I do not want to comment any further at this time."
