After two years of being married, Stacey Dash has decided to put an end to her relationship with Jeffrey Marty by filing for divorce. People cited that the filing “comes nine months after Dash was arrested after an alleged domestic violence incident involving Marty.” According to the source, police were called to the couple’s residence in Tampa, FL over a marital dispute back in September 2019.
While no charges were pressed against Dash, she was arrested “as a formality.” Sources say her husband then paid $500 to free her from the Land O’ Lakes detention center. After the dispute, Dash tweeted, “Like normal married couples my husband and I had a marital dispute that escalated. Thank you for your support and love. Please give him the same.”
Dash Claims She Separated from Marty a Day After the Incident
In the divorce paperwork, which was filed in Pasco County, FL, Dash listed the couple’s separation date as October 1, 2019, which was one day after the domestic dispute occurred. Dash and Marty had only been together for a short period of time. The two eloped on April 6, 2018, and in April 2020, Dash shared with the public via social media that she and her husband made the decision to end their marriage. In the Instagram post, Dash said, “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 respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
