Back in 2014, we told you about the drama between Tasha Smith and her ex-husband, Keith Douglas. It all started when Douglas filed a restraining order against Smith, despite the pair living under the same roof. He claimed that she threatened his life at one point and was dangerous. Smith countered by asking for her own restraining order, saying it’s Douglas who flies into fits of rage, even going as far as to accuse her of sleeping with other women. A month later, she filed for divorce and was ordered to pay the man $7,000 a month in spousal support. It was all bad.
But things are looking up. It took a year, but things are finally over between the pair. And in a dramatic fashion fit for TV.
According to TMZ, the marriage was annulled a few days ago on the grounds of fraud. As it turns out, Douglas kept a lot about himself a secret for quite some time during their relationship. For instance, the fact that he led her to believe that he was a preacher and man of faith with a good moral compass, as Smith is strong in her faith. Instead, he had not only been married five times before he asked for her hand, but he also hid the number of kids he really has, a past criminal record and years of failing to pay taxes under his belt. How many years you ask?
Nearly a decade.
And this man with all his baggage was her manager at one point. According to TMZ, the judge said all that was hidden from Smith was what made her want to marry Douglas. He seemed like a catch. But had she known everything, there was no way she would have taken the plunge. Especially not for her first walk down the aisle.
“She in no way would have jumped within a few months at the chance to be bride number six.”
When we spoke to Smith earlier this year, she said she was more than ready to move on from him, because the truth (probably that Douglas was out here with skeletons stumbling out of his closets) set her free.
“Honey, I’m happy. I am happy, and you know all things work together for the good. Everything is divine, and I’m so grateful that I discovered the things that I discovered so that I could have my life back.”
