Kadeem and his ex-wife Chanté Moore started dating around 1994 and, after three years of togetherness, got married to each other on November 17, 1997.

However, before the couple got married, they already had a bundle of joy added to their life in the form of their daughter Sophia Hardison, who was born in 1996.

The husband and wife were married for two years and ended up getting a divorce in 2000.

Even after the divorce, the couple had an amazing connection, where they cared for each other and also together for their daughter.

As it happens, Kadeem’s ex-wife Chanté Moore had everything good to talk about their relationship and revealed in a YouTube video how they fell in love very quickly after they first met but later turned out to be friends.

She revealed everything related to her married life and how Kadeem was always a friend and a father to her now 26 years old daughter.

In an interview in 2013 with Madam Noire, she stated,

“He appreciates for who I was and who I am and we grew together that’s what friendship is about whether or not we’re married or lovers or whatever the case is, you have to know who you're with and he and I spent a lot of time together.”

she added;

“There was a real honest love, and after we broke up we still care about each other; there’s nothing that’s gonna happen that makes him not my family to me. He’s my daughter’s father, but he’s my friend if he needs me for anything. I’m gonna be there, and I feel the same about him.”
