Former “Clueless” star Stacey Dash is trying to remain positive as she deals with her divorce and the trying times the world is facing.
Stacey Dash, like any other person, has been staying at home amid the COVID-10 quarantine and dealing with the mental effects of social distancing. However, the actress has also been dealing with a personal struggle.
DEALING WITH NEGATIVITY
Dash, 53, recently filed for divorce from Jeffrey Marty after two years of marital bliss. So, amid these hard times, she’s offering her followers some words of advice to live by if they want to keep their heads up high.
Although Dash made the call, she was the one who ended up arrested for pushing and slapping Marty.
First, Dash recommends finding the source of negativity that it’s affecting your life. Whether that is a person or a news outlet, she says the best is to take some time away from it.
Second, Dash believes that focusing on the things that make you happy will uplift your humor. From jogging to cooking, or watching a movie, anything works if it’s a source of positivity.
Last but not least, Dash says it is important “to ensure that the world and its problems don’t consume you and tear you down.” She concluded her post writing:
“Ultimately, it’s in God’s hands, so everything will be okay in the end!”
THE FIGHT BEFORE THE DIVORCE
Dash and Marty married on April 6, 2018, after only ten days of knowing each other. Still, the couple enjoyed marital bliss for almost a year and a half.
Then, in September 2019, the police were called to the couple’s home when a discussion escalated, and things turned physical.
Although Dash made the call, she was the one who ended up arrested for pushing and slapping Marty. However, her lawyer later claimed she was acting in self-defense and claimed the dispute had been blown out of proportion by the press.
Marty appeared in court on behalf of his wife. He didn’t press charges and posted the $500 bond to bail Dash out from the detention facility.
DASH FACES HER 4TH DIVORCE
In April, Dash took to Instagram to announce that after much prayer, she and Marty had decided to divorce.
Then, on June 16, it was reported that Dash submitted the divorce proceedings in Pasco County, Florida. Court documents allegedly state the date of separation as October 1, 2019, one day after the domestic violence incident.
This will be Dash’s fourth divorce. She was previously married to Brian Lovell, James Maby, and Emmanuel Xuereb. She's also a mother of two, son Austin, and daughter Lola.
