They spent time together getting to know each other and a year later, on August 22, 1998, they legalized their union at a private wedding ceremony that had only close friends and relatives in attendance.

Terrence and Jasmine seemingly enjoyed a happy marriage until 10 years later when their union became rocky and was characterized by constant conflicts. The couple officially divorced each other on April 8, 2008, a decade after they got married, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.

Neither of the duo got remarried after the divorce, and they have not revealed details of any other relationship they have had or are currently in since the divorce.

They Did Not Have an Amicable Divorce

Terrence and Jasmine were engaged in a custody battle over their only child. Because Terrence had been actively involved in his daughter’s life, he requested shared custody of their daughter. However, the court ruled in favor of Jasmine and she was granted legal and physical custody, and Terrence was ordered to pay child support to the tune of $1,469 monthly.

In 2012, four years after their divorce was finalized, Jasmine filed a lawsuit that accused Terrence of defaulting on the monthly payment of child support. She alleged he had stopped the payments in May 2010 and thus owed her a total of $39,663. We could not, however, verify what became of the lawsuit.
