When the Checks Stop Coming In: Jasmine Guy’s Divorce Put Her In the Hole?

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Divorces, News, Pay Yo Bills


When Jasmine Guy decided to divorce Mitchell Duckett, she didn’t know about all the expenses ole boy had racked up:

“A Different World” star Jasmine Guy got her furniture, artwork, jewelery, cars, pre-marital earnings and sole custody of her daughter in her divorce from her hubby of 11 years — but she also got a crapload of debt.
Docs just filed in L.A. Superior Court show Guy was granted a divorce from Terrence Mitchell Duckett — but the papers also reveal she had to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy because of the couple’s tremendous debt.

The amount Guy personally owes in back taxes and penalties: $123,503.64 … plus interest. Her ex isn’t free and clear either. His share of the debt: $94,354.71 … and he’s on the hook for interest too. Plus side: Guy just landed a role on “Vampire Diaries” … and that first paycheck couldn’t come fast enough.

Who knew that Whitley Gilbert would one day struggle?

    I feel for Jasmine, she has that to face and she suffers from Lupus.

    Quiet as its kept, all of us here on Earth are going to struggle; some more and longer than others, but you WILL struggle sooner or later, so we might as well own up to it; Kirk Franklin had it right on his last CD ‘The Fight of My Life’. Big ups to everyone. :)


    SAD… :(

    damn redbones age badly.

    • I'm Relieved

      She has a medical condition…lupus or something. She actually admitted to looking horrible on “A Different World”…but she used alot of makeup to the point where no one really recognized her when shopping around town without the makeup.Or they’d comments: “Is that Jasmine Guy, man she looks bad”. Yes the hubby looks good, and she looks like his Mother. So don’t make fun of her. She’s not redbone, one parent is white and one is black.

    Redbones age badly? Umm what about Lena Horne? What about Freda Payne? Vanessa Williams? Suzanne De Passe, don’t make me go one… Young one, you need to review your redbone history. Ms. Guy was ill with Lupus and that explains why she looks this way.
