Meet Sonja Henke, Actor Brad William Henke Wife

Orange Is the New Black star Brad William Henke was married to his wife Sonja Henke. Both Brad and Sonja are very private about their relationship. They kept their marriage away from the limelight. Brad was previously married to his ex-wife Katelin Chesna. They were reportedly married from 2001 to 2008.

In 2006, Brad and Katelin added another member to their family of two. They adopted a fourteen-year-old foster child. He said, “We got a dog named Puggles and that made us more of a family. Then we decided to get a house! And now we’re adopting a 14-year-old foster child.”

According to, they met each other on the set of Going to California.

After Brad’s divorce, he delved into the dating scene and started seeing Simone Toliver. Even after reaching a stage in their relationship where Simone became Brad’s fiancée, however, their relationship came to an end in June 2017.

Their breakup was caused by Brad’s verbally abusive outbursts and anger management problems. Brad mistreated Simone when they were dating and was abusive in the relationship. She allegedly made the outrageous claim that Henke sent her “emotionally abusive communications” up to 30 times each day through an email.

When Simone obtained a restraining order against Brad in May 2018 after he allegedly threatened to harm her, Brad’s aggressive and unsettling behaviors were further demonstrated to be accurate. Simone did not show up in court for the hearing to make the restraining order permanent, thus it was overturned.

Brad was previously rumored to be gay after portraying C.O. Desi Piscatella on Orange is the New Black. He spoke with Out magazine in 2016 and revealed that he was straight.

Brad said: “Just from having friends in the gay community, I know their frustrations with how they are represented. It felt like, “Hey, I better f****** do this right.” And it’s funny because on Instagram people have written, “Thank you for playing a real person who is also gay.” That is my [character’s] sexuality. But I am a flawed person like Piscatella. And I’m also a good person like Piscatella. I’m everything, you know? And I think that sometimes doesn’t make it onto TV.”

In addition, he had an appearance as a gay man in the romantic comedy Must Love Dogs, playing Diane Lane’s gay best friend.

Talking about Sonja, she is a mother of two. She has a daughter named Leasa and a son named Aaden. Sonja welcomed Aaden in August 2015 with her ex-partner Kevin James.
