Who is his former wife Jasmine?
Jasmine Guy was born in Boston, Massachusetts USA on 10 March 1962 – her zodiac sign is Pisces, and she holds American nationality. She’s appeared in close to 100 movies and TV series, but is probably still known best for her portrayal of the supporting character Dominique La Rue in the critically acclaimed 1989 crime comedy movie “Harlem Nights”, written and directed by Eddie Murphy, who also starred in it alongside Richard Pryor and Redd Foxx. Set in the 1930s, the film follows the life of the owner of a New York City illegal gambling house; it won two of the five awards for which it was nominated, including an Oscar nomination for Best Costume Design.
Jasmine was raised in Boston alongside her sister Monica, by their Portuguese-American mother Jaye Rudolph who was a high school teacher, and their African-American father Reverend William Vincent Guy, who was a pastor of the Friendship Baptist Church of Atlanta. Jasmine grew up being interested mostly in acting and dancing, and was 17 when she moved to New York City, after her application had been accepted at Alvin Ailey American Dance Center.
She made her debut TV series appearance with her portrayal of Fame Dancer in the 1982 musical drama “Fame”, while she made her debut film appearance in the 1988 musical comedy drama “School Daze”. Jasmine gained recognition when cast to star as Whitley Gilbert in the popular comedy series “A Different World”, created by Bill Cosby, and which also starred Kadeem Hardison and Lisa Bonet.
It follows a group of teenagers who have enrolled at an historically Black university, the series aired from 1987 to 1993, and won 17 of the 28 awards for which it was nominated, including three Primetime Emmy nominations.
A couple of Jasmine’s other notable performances in the ‘90s were in the 1995 musical romantic crime movie “Klash”, the 1996 family fantasy series “Touched by an Angel”, and the 1997 animated family comedy movie “Cats Don’t Dance” (voice role).
What marked the 2000s for her was perhaps her portrayal of Cynthia in the 2008 romantic comedy movie “Tru Loved”, written and directed by Stewart Wade, and which starred Najarra Townsend, Joseph Julian Soria and Howard Booth.
It tells the story of Tru, who has just befriended a gay Football Player, and has launched her school’s Gay-Straight Alliance; the movie won 16 awards.
Three of Jasmine’s most recent roles have been in four episodes of the 2021 comedy series “Harlem”, a 2021 episode of the action series “Chronicles of Jessica Wu”, and the 2022 thriller movie “Vanished: Searching for My Sister”.
She has won six of the 10 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Image Awards for which she has been nominated; her wins were for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in every year between 1990 and 1995, and all were for her performance in “A Different World”.
