Real-life soap operas of superstars often take a dramatic twist, as it happened in the case of J.R. Smith.
“The phrase, old is gold” is often applied in life, and the latest withers away. Well, NBA star Smith did so when it comes to resolving love issues.
Smith tied knot with the mother of his daughter Demi last week, dumping his girlfriend Ashley Weatherspoon.
Twist in the tale
Smith enjoyed a getaway weekend with Weatherspoon earlier this summer. Then he dodged her and eloped with his new spouse Jewel Harris to a New Jersey courthouse, according to reports.
The former Cavs star posted a video in Instagram featuring his daughter Demi, giving a red box of diamonds to her mother.
The video also reveals little Demi proposing to her mother.
“Mommy, will you marry us?’ says the six-year-old on the video.
“Yes or nah?”
Harris replies by answering ‘yes.’
This isn’t the first time Smith is sharing a photo of his private sphere in social media. Days before announcing his engagement, Smith shared another photo with the caption “Lil mama and Her mama. Sometimes what’s most important is right in front of you! All you have to do is embrace it! #EmbraceYourDestiny.”
Smith’s future at the Cleveland Cavaliers appears to be uncertain. He earlier turned down his player option of $ 6.4 million eyeing a long-term offer worth more money. And now the Cavs offered him lesser money after he failed to earn a higher offer from other teams, according to reports.
Well, conjugal bliss here can bring in a twist in the tale in Smith’s career.
