LisaRaye’s ex-husband Michael Misick who is the Prime Minister of Turks and Caicos said Friday he will step down as leader of the Turks and Caicos Islands at the end of March, citing a lack of support for his scandal-plagued government.
The surprise announcement came hours after the deputy prime minister resigned over differences with Misick, whose big-spending, Hollywood lifestyle helped turn the Turks and Caicos into a celebrity hotspot. But it also fueled a corruption probe in the British territory, a Caribbean island chain 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) southeast of Miami.
“What the country and our party needs now more than ever is stability and certainty,” Misick said during a press conference in his office. “I have tried in recent weeks to create this. It now appears to me that the divide within the party is too deep.”
Misick said he would step down as party leader on Feb. 28 and resign as prime minister on March 31.
The island’s opposition party leader applauded the announcement.
“His resignation is long overdue,” said Floyd Seymour of the People’s Democratic Movement. “He owed the country an apology for causing it so much embarrassment. The entire government should also resign because they condoned a lot of the things that he had done.”
With two private jets on call and a Hollywood actress wife, Misick lived like the stars who inhabit the islands where Ben Affleck married, Eva Longoria honeymooned and designer Donna Karan owns a home.
