Most often than not, the "Transformers" actor found himself in the news over marriage issues and accusations of abuse. In his marriage to Karrine Steffan, a video vixen, Darius was accused of violent physical abuse.

The TV star's first marriage was to Juliette M. Vann. The two said their vows in 2005, but their union was short-lived, and in 2006, they called it quits. McCray and Steffan tied the knot in 2009, but their union was quite tumultuous. 



According to court documents, Karrine claimed that her now ex-husband choked her and beat her with a belt, amid other volatile behaviors. Following their divorce, Karrine revealed that she bore false witness against Darius when she testified against him in court.

McCray's lawyer came out to say that Brawner was a "predator."

The "Vixen" author made it known that she was "hurt and upset" about their divorce. Therefore she joined forces with the mother of McCray's son to accuse him of beating his son. At the time, the California native was arrested over unpaid child support.

Once in a revealing interview, the "The Young and the Restless" actor talked about his marriage with Karrine Steffan as he shared that star singer Bobby Brown warned him about her. He said:


"Bobby tried to warn me. We were laughing about this situation with some of the guys…"

In his own opinion, Karrine was a beautiful woman whose mind attracted him. Referring to it as "dangerous," McCray talked about his ex-wife's beauty and her mind.



The sitcom star's marriage to former Harlem Globetrotter, Tammy Brawner, also had its fair share of controversies. Brawner's court documents claimed that McCray was "violent," destructive, and emotionally unstable." She also made it known that the "Big Shots" star had a drinking problem.

In 2017, the Basketball star came out with fresh allegations as she calmed that Darius held their little daughter over a stove and pot of boiling water. 

Following this, McCray's lawyer came out to say that Brawner was a "predator," out to get money from the star actor. There was a back and forth between the two leading up to their divorce in 2017.
