Cassi Davis is better known for her role as Ella Payne on the Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” series, and even though she has worked in several other TV shows, it was her work with Perry that put her in the spotlight. Davis and her co-star LaVan Davis have been fighting rumors about their relationship for years, and she recently set the record straight.


Celebritist learned from Black America Web that Cassi Davis is indeed a married woman, but not to her on-screen husband and co-star LaVan Davis. The talented actress tied the knot just one year ago, and she couldn’t be happier about her life.

Cassi Davis has been blessing our screens with her talent since the late ‘80s, but her big break in the industry came after the famous director and writer Tyler Perry took an interest for her and made her part of the cast of his “House of Payne” series.


In the show, Davis gave life to Ella, the religious, patient and loving wife of Curtis Payne, interpreted by fellow actor LaVan Davis. The chemistry and work ethic between those two was so amazing, that Perry decided to pair them up in some of his other productions like “Madea Goes to Jail” and “Daddy’s little girls.”

That, and the fact that they share the same last name made people start to wonder if they were married in real life, but they didn’t address the rumors immediately, leaving the speculation be their ally as it earned more interest for their careers


In fact, in 2011 the pair was invited to the TV show “You and Me This Morning,” and the hosts took the chance to ask them about the state of their relationship, and while Cassi denied it almost instantly, LaVan decided to keep the mystery by answering “maybe.”

Now that it has been announced that the original cast will be coming back for a reboot of “House of Payne” that will be titled “The Paynes,” Cassi had to set the record straight about the state of her love life.

As it turns out, the 53-years-old actress married her high school sweetheart, a man named Kerry Patton, on January 2017. Speaking with Black America Web, she revealed the news by stating:

“Let me tell you this but its Cassis Davis Patton. I jumped that broom January 11. To my high school sweetheart. We started talking and dating back in 2007 and oh my goodness we stayed connected and now we are bonded. We tearing stuff up. It’s beautiful. Our fights are beautiful and our makeups are beautiful.”

Well, it seems like fans of the Cassi-LaVan couple will be disappointed to find out about this development in Cassi’s life, but we’re happy for her and wish her all the happiness in the world.
