PAT AND MARTIN LAWRENCE'S MARRIAGE
Pat is a great mother to her five children and also maintains a good relationship with their fathers. She shares her first child and daughter, Jasmin Page, with her ex-husband and actor, Martin Lawrence.
Pat and Martin welcomed Jasmin in 1995, shortly before they walked down the aisle. Sadly, the duo's marriage did not last for long, and two years later, they got divorced.
In the divorce papers, Pat revealed that Martin always smoked marijuana and drank occasionally. According to her statement, the actor once swerved his Ferrari off the edge of Benedict Canyon, leaving Pat terrified.
She also claimed in her statement to have been physically abused by her former partner during a fight. Afterward, Pat moved out from Martin's apartment into Universal City Hilton.
While at the location, the beauty queen alleged that the actor threatened to kill her for the revelations she had made, and not long after, he called to apologize.
The apologies fell on deaf ears, which eventually led to the divorce. Martin underwent psychiatric treatments and took psychotropic medication, which aided his recovery.
MARTIN LAWRENCE ON PARENTHOOD
Despite their differences, Pat and Martin found a way of being excellent co-parents to their only child. The "Bad Boys" actor once revealed during an interview with Metro UK that being a parent was difficult. However, the challenges did not stop him from being a great dad.
Martin also ensured to instill discipline in his daughters while growing up. He would reward them if they did something right, and whenever they did something bad, he would take away something valuable.
JASMIN PAGE LAWRENCE
It appears that the actor's teaching stuck to Jasmin, as she studied hard and became a graduate of Duke University. Jasmin is currently romantically involved with Hollywood icon Eddie Murphy's son, Eric Murphy.
The pair are full of love for each other and constantly flaunt their relationship on social media. Jasmin and Eric's relationship became public in July after the former wished her boyfriend a happy birthday.
Jasmin shared photos of her and Eric posing together, and in the caption, she mentioned that she was blessed to know Eric and have him by her side. Martin's daughter said she loved her man very much and hoped for more beautiful memories together.
WHO IS RHEAGEN SMITH
Pat shares her remaining kids with her ex-husband and former American football running back, Emmitt Smith. The former couple got married in 2000. Upon their union, Pat became a stepmother to Emmitt's child, Rheagen, from a previous relationship.
Rheagen has not only inherited her father's good looks, but the raving beauty is also a sports enthusiast. She is a soccer player and has achieved great success while at it.
In 2017, she joined the Texas A&M University soccer team as a freshman. She once made the news when her star dad joined the crowd to watch her play.
Emmitt was filled with pride for his daughter as he took to Twitter, where he showed off her skills, letting fans know that his beautiful daughter was repping the number 22.
