Who is Joe Smith’s wife?
Smith is married to Kisha Chavis, and they have been together for nearly 13 years, according to a report published on TMZ.
The couple has had plans to be an upstanding power couple with their many ventures, but things didn’t work out that way.
They have struggled with finances, mental health and infidelity over the years.
Chavis started an OnlyFans account because of the couple’s financial struggles, which she believes put Smith into a depression.
Smith recently found out about Chavis’ OnlyFans account, which led to their separation, according to Sportskeeda.
Chavis believes that their issues are deeply rooted, far beyond the OnlyFans account she made, and that they are able to work things out.
Smith’s rage mainly stemmed from the fact that he found out about the account after she had already started it.
Chavis claims she has had her OnlyFans account for more than a year, and Smith didn’t find out about it until a “friend that he’s been entertaining” alerted him.
Despite their separation, Chavis doesn’t think their issues will lead to a divorce and wants to work things out with her husband.
