At such an early age, the couple had things figured out ahead of them for their future, which unfortunately couldn't go according to their plans. And, at the age of 28, Debrah suddenly grew more passionate about acting and decided that was her true career calling.
And, it seems as Deborah who also prefers to spell her name as Debrah, her dream to embark on a Hollywood journey costs her marriage. Following the four years of their married life, Debrah and Scott decided it was best for them to separate. The former husband and wife share no children together.
