'Clueless' Actress Stacey Dash Announces Split From Her Fourth Husband, Lawyer Jeffrey Marty -- Social Media Mercilessly Dunks On Her
Stacey Dash has announced that she is splitting from her fourth husband, Jeffrey Marty, after getting married in 2018. They tied the knot after knowing each other for just 10 days.
However, it is not clear if one of the two parties has filed for divorce yet. The sad news was met with a lot of humor online, instead of the usual sad feeling that is associated with a divorce.
People on social media have turned on the 53-year-old actress in recent years after she got deeper into politics and expressed some controversial views on the right-leaning network Fox News Channel.
Dash posted a statement on Instagram Thursday and made sure the comments were off to avoid the potential backlash.
Her message read: "My husband and I have made the hard decision of ending our marriage. After much prayer, I feel this is the right path for both of us. I wish him nothing but the best. Thank you everyone for your support and [for] respecting our privacy during this difficult time."
The Clueless star was arrested in September for domestic violence, but she claimed that the lawyer was the one who attacked her.
In a statement released at the time, she said: "Like normal married couples, my husband and I had a marital dispute that escalated. No charges were pressed by her husband, however, Deputies arrested Ms. Dash peacefully, as a formality."
Although the charges got dropped, later on, it seems reconciliation was no longer possible. Social media, which is not known for its mercy, is piling on.
One commenter wrote: "I thought this had happened when she got beat up by his kids... 🤨🤷🏾♀️." A second observer chimed in: "Damn ain’t that husband 17. She definitely the problem 😂😂😂😂."
An observer, who brought a racial component in the conversation, added: "Why are black women saying "the white man don't want you" uhm by the looks of it black men don't want you either😩😩😩."
A fourth comment read: "I just don’t understand the purpose of announcing something like this over Instagram...lol but okay."
This Instagrammer had some fun at Dash's expense and continued: "🙄 We didn't know you were married, and you can have all the privacy in the world."
Marty has not addressed the matter, choosing to focus on politics instead.
