NBA free agent JR Smith is breaking his silence after his wife Shirley “Jewel” Harris posted herself praying for her cheating husband and his alleged mistress, Candice Patton.
In the video, Harris says, “God is mad wild. There’s a lot going on... Help me God. So, as I was taking Demi to school, God was like ‘Yeah, you gonna pray and you’re gonna post it.’”
Harris continued by sharing her prayer, adding: “God, I would like to lift my husband up and ask you, Lord Father God, to please just cover him with your blood. I ask in the mighty name of Jesus that you go to him where he is right now and you shake him up, God. You shake him up and you stir him up . . . I ask that wherever he is broke, you fix him [and] you heal him.”
She then started to talk about he alleged infidelity. “My husband, he’s hurting and Candice, she’s hurting ... For her to go out here, Father God, and seek a married man, I just pray that you give her grace and mercy through all of this,” she said.
JR has since responded saying, “IG ain’t a place for relationships!! But God told me to tell y’all I’ve been separated for months. He doesn’t understand why his child failed to mention that... #thatsall.”
Smith married his wife in Aug. 2016. They have four children together. Their youngest baby girl Dakota had been born five months early in Jan. 2017.
