Tasha Smith Files For Divorce, Ordered To Pay Estranged Husband $50K In Spousal Support

Why Did I Get Married actress Tasha Smith is probably pondering that very question considering that she recently filed for divorce.

Unfortunately, the odds already don’t appear to be in her favor. According to TMZ, a judge has ordered the fiery beauty to fork up $50,000 in spousal support up front to estranged hubby Keith Douglas because she is the primary breadwinner in their household. This arrangement has supposedly been put in place to hold Douglas over until the more permanent details of their divorce can be straightened out. Perhaps he’ll use that money to move out of the couple’s marital home.

It became apparent that Smith and Douglas’ four-year marriage was deteriorating back in November when the Hollywood hubby requested a restraining order against her. According to Douglas, Smith frequently went into alcohol-induced rages that resulted in her threatening his life. Just days after Douglas’ restraining order was granted, Smith requested her own restraining order. In her filing, the actress also alleged that Douglas threatened her life, referred to her as a “f-cking d-ke” and accused her of sleeping with other women.

It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this with these two, but as we’ve learned from both Why Did I Get Married films, every relationship isn’t meant to last forever.

After dating for several years, the “Not Gon Cry” singer tied the knot to Isaacs inside of her New Jersey home. Recently, Blige’s comments about not allowing her husband to have any female friends garnered a lot of attention but during an appearance on Wendy Williams she said her comments were blown out of proportion.

Chris Brown Apologizes To Karrueche After Publicly Disrespecting Her All Weekend: “Everybody Know I Love That Girl”

Over the weekend, Chris Brown pretty much threw a tantrum (on stage and on social media) because his longtime girlfriend, whom he has repeatedly disrespected, decided that she would finally stand up for herself and break things off.

You can read more about his over-the-top antics here, but in short, he boasted during a performance about being single and proceeded to say,” F-k that b-tch.” He also took to social media and attempted to degrade her by posting about her participating in threesomes at the start of their relationship and accused her of sneaking around with Drake. And then after a weekend of this outrageous behavior, unsurprisingly to most of us, Chris decided to apologize and proclaim his love for her.

“Being young and dumb is one of my strong suits and emotional at best. I love hard and react impulsively when I’m hurt at times. I don’t think social media is a place to air out or hash out personal problems and a n-gga feel hella WACK for doing it.

So I AM APOLOGIZING I live in a glass house and the same sh-t that makes me great also is my curse. Everybody know I love that girl. I don’t care how my image my look to the public because I’m still gonna be the best at what I do. I just want baby girl to know I apologize!”

Although Karrueche has been expressing that she has reached her breaking point and that she’s done with the tumultuous relationship for good, and while I wish that this were true, chances are that they will be back together before this post is published.

Meanwhile, folks from Drake’s camp are saying that the allegations about him dating Karrueche are completely false because the aspiring actress isn’t his “type.”

“Drake’s an a– man. Think about it, all the strippers he gets with … the first out of his type was Rihanna,” an insider reportedly to TMZ.

I’m by no means a Chris Brown hater, but something has honestly got to give. If this is how he treats someone he “loves,” I don’t even want to imagine how he behaves towards someone he hates.

Apollo Says He And Phaedra May Save Their Marriage: “I’m Hopeful That We Can Stick Things Out”

At this point, we were all pretty convinced that thing were over between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida, but according to the troubled reality TV husband, there’s a possibility that their marriage will be saved. In his first interview from behind bars, Apollo told InTouch Weekly that he and Phae Phae are now on speaking terms.

“Yes, we’ve had problems — especially over the last year — but we’ve gotten on terms now where I can call her and it’s cordial,” the father of two explained.

Not only is he allowed to call his estranged wife, but he also claims that they speak frequently. Apparently, this are going so well that he’s under the impression that their marriage has a chance of surviving his lengthy prison stint.

“I’m hopeful that we can stick things out.”

Apollo says that the pair has been discussing Phaedra bringing their two sons, Dylan and Ayden, up to the prison to see him.

“There’s a plan to get them up here.”

Unfortunately, it appears that Apollo’s wish for reconciliation may be nothing more than that—a wish. According to Phaedra’s publicist, the divorce is still on. He did, however, admit that the attorney is considering taking the boys to see their father.

“The divorce is proceeding as planned,” her rep explained. “While Phaedra and the boys [Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 18 months] do speak with Apollo regularly, there have been absolutely no discussions about reconciling.”

While I would hope that Phae Phae’s publicist is simply misinformed and Phaedra and Apollo have been trying to work things out, the chances of her rep releasing a statement on this sensitive matter without her approval is unlikely. As previously reported, when asked if she would proceed with the divorce while Apollo is still behind bars, Phaedra replied with a simple “I don’t know.”

Papoose Says People Told Him To Move On When Remy Was In Prison

While Remy Ma was serving her six-year prison bid, many wondered what would become of her relationship with her love, Papoose. Thankfully, their relationship was able to survive that drama-filled time in their lives, but Pap says that it definitely wasn’t easy.

“It wasn’t easy,” he honestly told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite. “It was an uphill battle the whole time. It felt like the storm wasn’t going to stop at times. Those were some very hard times, but we made it through just by having each other, and staying true to each other. But it definitely wasn’t easy – it’s something you never want to forget. You don’t want to take the good things for granted because those were some hard times day-by-day. Mainly in the beginning, it was the hardest because it was like she just blew trial, and we were hoping for an appeal, but reality was setting in that she was going to be there for some long amount of years. It was tough.”

Unsurprisingly, Pap says that some people suggested that he move on during Remy’s prison stint.

“Yeah I had a lot of people who felt like that, but people know how dedicated I am, so it really wasn’t a large amount of people who was willing to say that to my face because they know knew how I felt about Remy,” he explained. “But I would hear it was being said behind my back. ‘I was a fool, I was stupid, I should go on with my life ’cause she would do it to me’. Things like that people were saying, and if you ever went through any hard times, you know that everybody leaves ’cause it wasn’t fun to be around me. I had responsibilities – I had to get up in the morning, drive up north, drive back, I had to shop for packages so she could have food to eat. It’s like, basically, Rem occupied a space in my life, but she wasn’t physically there, so I had to live according to that.”

“You know, everybody abandons when the going gets tough, you know what I’m saying? It was hard man, it was hard,” he continued. “Just seeing her go through it. You gotta realize, Rem was having her appeals put in, and we would go maybe a year-and-a- half waiting for the results of an appeal, planning our lives on her walking out, and then we would get the results, and we’d just get let down. So I had to watch her go through that, you know what I’m saying? It was hard…I can’t even sit here and front and say it was easy, you know what I’m saying?”

As for what their relationship was like before her legal trouble, Pap says that they were inseparable.

“Rem was just a good person. When the situation happened, me and Rem was in love with each other, before it even happened. Like we were inseparable – we would be together every day, all day. And when we wasn’t together, we would be on the phone.”

Just before the incident, he says that Remy was trying to decide whether or not she should stay overseas with him.

“I was actually overseas and she was overseas with me. We both was touring, but her tour ended before mine, and she was deciding if she should stay with me or go back home. And that was the f-cking worst decision ever because she decided to go home. And we was counting down the days for me to come back off of my tour, and the last day, the last maybe couple days before I was finally coming home was when she caught the case. And when it happened, I actually left off my tour early to come back when it happened, but just to answer your question, I say all that to say that we was already in love with each other. Sometimes in life when things happen, people change towards the individual because the individual is in a hard, tough situation, but I’m not that type of person, you know what I’m saying?

Sheree Fletcher Rep Confirms Divorce

Last week, Sheree Fletcher made headlines after it was reported that she filed for divorce from her husband, retired NFL star Terrell Fletcher. We were able to get in touch with Sheree’s publicist, who unfortunately confirmed the split.

“I can confirm Sheree Fletcher has filed for divorce,” Sheree’s rep told MadameNoire in a statement. “Please respect her privacy during this time. She wants to thank her family, friends and fans for their support and prayers. Thank you.”

As previously reported, the pair has been separated since July.   Sheree cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce documents, which were filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court. The “Hollywood Exes” star is requesting spousal support; however, exact figures have not been disclosed.

For nearly a month, we’ve been wondering whether or not Fantasia secretly married her new beau, Kendall Taylor. Cryptic Instagram messages and a huge “Fantasia” tattoo inked across Kendall’s chest really seemed to confirm our suspicions. Yet still, Tasia has declined to formally confirm their union. But perhaps, that is all about to change.

A few minutes ago, the “End of Me” singer shared a photo of what appears to be her beautiful bridal set on Instagram with a caption about how much it means to her because it came from her “king,” Kendall.

“So He said: I want to get you the Ring of Your Dreams.. I want you to Look down and smile knowing your [sic] mine and you deserve this..I’m NOT A material girl and it could have been a ring out the Bubble Gum Machine but Just Continue to give me the Love you give to me Big Daddy… He said: I know but as your King THIS is what I want for my Queen.”

Last night, Tasia also shared a photo of herself with Kendall. In the caption, she thanked God for blessing her with everything that she prayed for in a man.

“God….. I Thank You!!! He’s Everything I Prayed For… To Feel Protected and To Have Someone To Cover Me In Prayer.. To Believe when I don’t Believe.. Man!!! This Weekend has me So Ready To Bring An Album They’ve Never Heard From Me.. I Love You Kendall Taylor…”

Considering all that she has been through, it’s nice to see Tasia happy, in love and drama free for a change. And of course, we’re looking forward to that new music he has inspired her to put out.

Tasha Smith’s Husband Gets A Restraining Order Against Her After Alleged Death Threats

So according to Tasha Smith’s husband, Keith Douglas, she’s not much different from the aggressive character that she played in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married.

TMZ is reporting that Douglas has filed for a protective order against the 43-year-old beauty. While a judge has granted his request, because the pair still lives under the same roof, Smith has been ordered to stay 2 yards away from Douglas while they’re at home. When they’re not at their residence, she has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from him.

In Douglas’ petition for a restraining order, he alleged that she frequently flies into alcohol-induced rages. He claims that things have gotten so bad that she has threatened his life and even warned him “not to fall asleep or something will happen.” He’s also alleging that she has threatened to have other people do bodily harm to him . Douglas claims that some of her outbursts even occurred in front of his children…

The judge would not order Tasha to leave the home until there is a full hearing. Strangely, just a few weeks ago, Smith and Douglas were photographed together (above) at the New York premiere of Addicted and they appeared pretty happy. It’s still unclear what has the couple at odds.

Sources close to Tasha say that allegations that she has a drinking problem are absurd. Tasha’s reps have declined to comment on the allegations.
