You Live and You Learn
Earlier this year Smith’s ex-husband, Keith Douglas accused her of sleeping with other women and he filed a restraining order against her which required Smith to stay at least two yards away from him despite the two living under the same roof at the time.  Just one week later Smith filed a similar restraining order against Douglas, accusing him of having extra marital affairs.

In 2011 the couple launched the organic perfume company ‘US’.  Smith’s good friend, Tisha Campbell-Martin was one of her character witnesses.  The former couple’s divorce was finalized in March 2015.

Smith was ordered to pay $7,000 per month in spousal support.  As a part of the settlement Smith got the family Mercedes back.  Prior to the settle, in 2014 a judge made Smith pay Douglas $50,000 in spousal support, up-front, until the two were able to work-out a permanent agreement.

Twin Sister
Many people are unaware that Smith has a twin.  Tasha Smith’s twin sister, Sidra Smith is also in the entertainment business as a director and producer.

Tasha Smith’s sister in real-life is about as sharp as her sister on Empire.  Sidra pulled a Cookie Lyon, sensing Douglas’ dishonesty leading her to hire a private investigator to help her sister out.
