#Roommates, if you thought the cheating allegations against NBA star JR Smith were shocking—then his update addressing his wife’s claims of infidelity is even more wild.
Social media erupted in a frenzy earlier this week, when JR Smith’s wife Jewel Harris posted a video of her praying for him and his rumored mistress Candice Smith, known for her role on the CW series “The Flash.” The video instantly went viral with many puzzled at Jewel’s decision to post something so personal—and a few hours later, JR officially entered the chat and told his side of the story.
He claims that not only is he currently separated from Jewel, but it’s been that way for several months and he doesn’t understand why she felt the need to take their relationships issues to social media in the first place.
He posted the following message to his Instagram stories:
“IG AIN’T A PLACE FOR RELATIONSHIPS!! BUT GOD TOLD ME TO TELL YA’LL I’VE BEEN SEPARATED FOR MONTHS HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND WHY HIS CHILD FAILED TO MENTION THAT…#THATSALL”
Now that JR has officially addressed the cheating allegations, many are wondering if Candice will offer some sort of statement regarding the entire ordeal. As of right now, Jewel has not publicly responded to JR’s claims of separation. It’s also unclear if the couple have filed divorce papers or if they plan to do so in the future.
Jewel and JR were married back in 2016 and share two daughters.
