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.

Nick Cannon dating rumors have been swirling ever since it was first confirmed that he and wife, Mariah Carey, would be ending their six-year marriage. The rumor mill has linked him to both Amber Rose, who is also currently going through a divorce, and “Wild N’ Out” model Brittany Dailey. However, the father of two insists that he’s nowhere near ready to begin dating again.

“I’m dating no one. I’m not even ready for that right now. I’m just trying to focus on my family and my children,” the actor told CNN.

Nick also admitted that he didn’t even really want to confirm their split to the public, but after a while, felt like he needed to.

“I never wanted to step out there and confirm or deny because it really wasn’t anyone else’s business,” he continued. “You have to speak on things because people are curious.”

And as he has done in previous interviews, Nick expressed that he, Mariah and the twins will always be a family and that they’re handling the divorce as a family would.

“We’re family and we’re human. We’re dealing with this as a family and we’ll forever be a family.”

They definitely appear to be handling things in a mature way. It’s even been reported that the foursome spent Thanksgiving together.

Earlier this week, we told you about Brennan Clay, the former college football player who accused his former teammate and friend DeMarco Murray, who now plays for the Dallas Cowboys, of sleeping with his wife. You can check out the full story here, but in short, Brennan discovered the alleged affair after he found some pretty sexual text messages exchanged between his wife and former friend.

Brennan has since taken back to Twitter to air out more details about the alleged affair by releasing screenshots from some of the text messages.

In the first message, texters, who are believed to DeMarco and Brennan’s wife, Gina, discuss plans to hook up and have sex while Brennan is out of town practicing with the San Diego Chargers.

As previously reported, Brennan has filed for divorce since learning of the alleged affair. The pair had only been married four months. Gina has yet to speak publicly about the allegations and reps for DeMarco have declined to comment as well.

Poor guy.

Deelishis Defends Relationship With Wiz Khalifa: “I’m Looked At As The Homewrecker”

Over Thanksgiving weekend, “Flavor of Love 2″ winner London “Deelishis” Charles released a questionable photo of herself hugged up with soon-to-be-divorced rapper Wiz Khalifa.

“It’s a Happy Holiday,” she captioned the photo.

Of course, this fueled rumors that the two are an item, or friends with benefits at the very least. This eventually led to folks questioning the timeline of their “relationship.” Especially considering that Amber Rose just announced her split from Wiz this summer and cited infidelity as the reason for their marriage being over. However, the reality star-turned-radio-host insists that she’s no “homewrecker.”

“He’s not married. Number one, he’s divorced and so am I. So you got two single people. I don’t know why they divorced,” she told Bijou Star.

“I don’t know why females have this issue with Deelishis. Had it been anybody else that he decided that he would like to take up a friendship with it would have been okay. But me? I’m looked at as the homewrecker. I haven’t wrecked anyone’s home.”

She also insists that she would be in favor of them getting back together.

“That’s not my business that’s between him and Amber, and to be honest if they decided to remarry or get back together, whatever the situation, I would totally respect it and be for it as I’ve spoken on my radio show. I’m all for love and happiness, I was a fan of their relationship from the beginning.”

While she admits that whatever they have going on is still in its early stages and she insists that they never had sex, the mother of two says that she would be open to possibly dating him.

“Wiz is a friend of mine. He’s a recent friend of mine,” she explained. “Instantly whenever I’m seen with someone they are automatically considered — not even that it’s my dude, they just jump right to sex. ‘Oh she’s effing this dude.’ I’m sorry, ‘She’s f–king this dude.’ No, I’ve never f–ked Wiz Khalifa. We’ve never had sex.”

As for where the relationship is heading, Deelishis had this to say:

“I don’t know. You never know. He’s a guy. He’s a single guy. Am I attracted to him? I’m attracted to who he is, yes. Is he attracted to who I am? I can believe so. And where’s the harm in that? There’s nothing wrong with Wiz Khalifa liking me or me liking Wiz Khalifa. I did not go into their household and start dating him. This was public knowledge that they had an incident, which they had divorced, or someone had filed for divorce and this was ending.”

And no, she doesn’t think that Amber would approve of whatever it is that they have going on.

“I don’t think she’s happy. […]At the start of any divorce, it doesn’t matter your reason for divorcing, in most cases you’re still a little sensitive once you see your ex-mate with someone. So I can imagine Amber isn’t the happiest person. But I’m not the demise of your relationship.”

“I’ve been a fan of hers so I don’t want to hurt her with this,” she continued. “I don’t want to hurt anybody.”

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.”

Ginuwine & Solé’s Quiet Divorce Left Him On The Brink Of Bankruptcy, Says Attorney

During court proceedings for a lawsuit filed against Ginuwine aka Elgin Lumpkin, quite a bit was revealed about the “Pony” singer. First, his attorney Bruce Beckner says that he’s flat broke and on the brink of bankruptcy, the New York Daily News report.

“Mr. Lumpkin is very close to declaring bankruptcy,” Beckner said. “He owes my firm a ton of money and a bunch of other people a ton of money. He owes Uncle Sam 300-odd thousand dollars in back income taxes.”

Second, Beckner says that Ginuwine’s recent divorce from wife, Tonya Solé Lumkpin, is what crippled his finances. While it seemed that Ginuwine and Solé were experiencing some relationship tension for quite some time, most were unaware of their extremely quiet divorce.

As for the lawsuit, it was filed against Ginuwine by Robert Reives, the executive producer of his recent album, The Bachelor. According to Reives, he’s owed royalties from a $1.25 million five-album deal that Ginuwine signed with Sony. In court documents, Reive’s legal reps are also calling BS on Ginuwine’s claims that he’s experiencing dire financial hardship.

“Despite the repeated representations before the court of defendant’s counsel that defendant has lost his large fortune … defendant has spared no expense in this proceeding to try every angle and every new legal theory his lawyers could come up with,” Reive’s attorney argued in court documents.

Last October, it looked like Timbaland and his wife, Monique Mosley, were headed for divorce court. Though she didn’t cite what the issue was, Monique filed for divorce from the hitmaker and requested money for child support, private school tuition, life insurance and alimony.

By March of this year, it appeared that Timb and Monique were rekindling their relationship and now it appears that their then-pending divorce is nothing but a distant memory. According to TMZ,the pair quietly dismissed their divorce case last week. The two have also been showing each other nothing but love on social media.

Daniel Gibson Says Media Played A Role In Failed Marriage: ‘I Would’ve Been Willing To Work Through Whatever The Problem Was’

Though neither of them have filed for divorce as of yet, it’s safe to say that Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson’s relationship is a thing of the past. While there are many factors that can contribute to the demise of a relationship (especially those in the public eye), judging by previous comments made by Keyshia, infidelity appears to be the primary reason why these two were unable to stay together. However, according to Daniel, the media also contributed to the falling apart of their union.

“It’s a tough situation. If you’re going to be in a situation like that [a public relationship], you have to be ready and willing to deal with whatever comes with it,” the former Cleveland Cavaliers player recently told Vlad TV. “I feel like…in the media…it’s more publicized and glorified, the bad things that happen in a relationship. If something bad happens in anybody’s relationship and you’re in front of the public eye, it’s going to get blew way out of proportion. So if in your situation, you two are not just tied together like best friends, with the social media and everything these days, your problem can start going too far to the point where you can’t catch it.”

Daniel went on to say that social media gives the everyday person the ability to reach celebrities and public figures, which means you’re constantly subjected to countless individuals weighing in on personal matters.

“You’re going to start hearing what everybody else has to say because now everyone is so accessible due to social media. You never know what’s true and not true and these days, people tend to believe anything they’re told and anything that’s printed.”

An example of this, adds Daniel, is when he was photographed with a popular exotic dancer from Houston. The photograph resulted in rumors that he was in a relationship and cheating on Keyshia with this woman. He, of course, denies the allegations.

“The girl is actually from where I’m from. The strip club is one of the one’s in the hood that people go to comfortably. And yeah, I snapped a flick and everybody is like, ‘Oh, he’s in a relationship with a stripper,’ or ‘He’s spending money with a stripper.’ It becomes the truth no matter what you say or what you do about it because people are so influenced by the media these days that everything sticks. You gotta have tough skin. If you’re in a relationship, like I said, it becomes a war.”

Although the soon-to-be-divorced pro-baller believes that the media did more harm than good to his marriage to Keyshia, Daniel candidly confessed that he’s not sure if their union would’ve survived—even without that element.

“I can’t speak on it and say we would [still] be together because I don’t know if we were meant to be together,” he expressed. “But, what I will say is yeah, if you don’t have so many people pulling on you and telling you this and telling you that, if you do have a problem, you’re able to come to it with each other, talk about it and figure it out. But once all of those outside forces come in, if you ain’t just locked in, that thing will break.”

As for why he refuses to be the one to file for divorce, Daniel had this to say:

“I would’ve been willing to work through whatever the problem was because I’ve always felt like that’s how it was supposed to go. You’re supposed to grow with somebody and go through whatever problems y’all got and come up out of them.”

Before concluding his interview, Daniel expressed that he is working hard to, at the very least, build a friendship with Keyshia to make co-parenting their son, Daniel Jr., as seamless as possible.
