Martin Lawrence's ex-wife Pat Smith had no hair out of place in her new media post as she shared a clip showing off her ever-youthful features.


Martin Lawrence's former partner Patricia "Pat" Smith's new Instagram show-off presented a stunning vision of her rocking a classy glam and her evergreen looks.

Smith filmed herself indoors rocking a black tank top that contrasted with her full blonde tresses. She parted her hair in one side with the tresses fanning her oval-shaped face.

The former beauty queen opted for subtle makeup spiced with sultry pink lipstick. Her makeup was mainly focused on her eyes, rocking false lashes that accentuated her eye color.

She sported a pair of large silver hoops; however, while she basked in her beauty hour, one of the hoops fell off, causing it to come off as a hilarious scene. She captioned:

"'I don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh' -Maya Angelou."


Smith, birth name Patricia Southhall, is married to former NFL star Emmitt Smith but they separated in 2020. Their marriage is her second, as she was first married to iconic comedian, Lawrence.

The former Miss Virginia and Lawrence met in 1992 and later tied the knot in 1995. Kim Jones, Lawrence's publicist, shared that the couple said their "I do's" at the Waterside Marriott Hotel in Norfolk.

However, Emmitt was quite understanding, and he made sure to carry his wife along.


The celebrity pair welcomed one daughter, Jasmin Page Lawrence, the following year. They called it quits in 1997. In 2000, Smith married Emmitt, with whom she has three kids.

Once speaking about her marriage, Smith recalled that her NFL retiree spouse was a contestant on "DWTS." She noted that she was pretty uncomfortable with the dance chemistry between him and his dance partner, Cheryl Burke.


She recounted how she would play different "motion picture" scenes in her head, and all these made her feel like her spouse was cheating. To this effect, she set rules, telling him to keep it strictly business.

However, Emmitt was quite understanding, and he made sure to carry his wife along. His support for her was also needed when Smith decided she was ready to return to her modeling career.

Through her kids' formative years, the star mom sacrificed some years for motherhood. However, she returned to the modeling scene in 2016, counting on her spouse's support just as she did for him.
