Tasha Smith Is Dating Amid Divorce, Who Is Her Boyfriend?

Tasha Smith is an American actress who rose to fame initially by appearing in NBC’s comedy series, Boston Common (1996-1997).

Other than her career news, she once made headlines about her divorce from her husband.

Let’s find out what happened to her married life. 

Who Was Tasha Smith Married To?

Tasha was once married to Keith Douglas in December 2010. Her husband was also her manager. However, Tasha and her husband were not happy with each other. Both of them were dissatisfied with their marriage.

Keith suspected Tasha of having an extramarital affair because she had to get closer to other actors in her profession. In return, Tasha filed for divorce, claiming that her husband had concealed crucial information from her. For example, according to Tasha, her husband never told her about his five marriages before marrying her. Tasha also revealed that her husband had not paid tax for almost a decade.

The divorce process was a disaster. Both Tasha and Keith filed for restraining orders, saying they feared for their lives.

While the divorce was eventually finalized in 2015, the Boston Common star was ordered to pay $50K in a lump and $7,000 monthly for spousal support. Keith, on the other hand, had to return her Mercedes Benz. 

However, the divorce was much easier as the couple did not have any kids together. But Tasha has five stepchildren from her ex-husband’s previous marriages.

After the divorce, a source close to Tasha disclosed many things. For one, they claimed that she was harassed when she couldn’t get pregnant. Other things include how Keith had swapped her diamond jewelry with cubic zirconia (a gemstone that looks similar to a diamond but is much cheaper) and how he was a serial philanderer.

However, Tasha moved on with her life and found the love of her life.
