Marriage Details Issue For Timothy J. Cox

In the marriage details portion of my IMDB page (ww.imdb.me/timothyjcox) it has me listed as being married to two women at the same time. I have only been married to one women, Jamie Barlow, since August 10, 2013. We have one child, our son Spencer, who was born on November 17, 2017. 

Here is a link to a video of my wedding to Jamie, filmed by acclaimed filmmaker Sean Meehan: https://vimeo.com/81440906

My bio must have been merged with another Tim Cox, Timmy Cox, Timothy cox or Timothy J. Cox. 

According to the bio, I married Ms. Kelly on June 15, 1996 and that I am still married to her and that I have two kids with her. This info does not apply to me.

On June 15, 1996, I had just finished my freshman year at Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio. During this time, I returned home to Wilmington, Delaware, where, if I recall, I worked at the Super Fresh Supermarket. I was living with my parents at home. At no time, did I meet, date, marry a Karen Kelly. If you need sworn statements from family and friends, please let me know. I cannot provide further proof as there isn't a marriage license in my name or in Ms. Kelly's name in the state of Ohio and the state of Delaware. This information is not accurate. I do not know a Karen Kelly. I have never known a Karen Kelly.

What we have here is a case of another Tim Cox's info being merged onto my page. I have made numerous attempts to have this information removed for several years now, but have received only generic responses. 

I am asking, begging even, to have this incorrect information removed from my bio. 

I thank you for your time and for your consideration.

Timothy: Please post your last full data submission here on this message board. You can copy it out of the receipt you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending it in. Some of the regulars on the board may review it and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submission to get the incorrect marriage removed from the database. (Also, please include the submission reference number -- it's an 18-digit number that will look something like 220123-123456-789000.)

Obviously something went wrong with your previous data submissions, whether in terms of the IMDb staff processing or not processing it or perhaps otherwise, but I would need to see what you submitted to figure out how things went wrong.

Sorry, Bethanny...but this issue is not closed to my satisfaction. Your generic response is not acceptable.

This was Bethanny's unhelpful response:

I find this whole thing incredibly amusing.
