She begged God to send Smith home to her and their three daughters. "Please forgive them, Lord," she said as she fought back tears.

But the 34-year-old shooting guard responded on Dec. 18, saying he and his estranged wife had been separated for months.

"IG ain't a place for relationships!!" Smith wrote in all caps. He added that God told him to inform his followers that he and his wife had been separated for months.

Someone posted an Instagram photo from November, that shows the former Cleveland Cavaliers guard seated court side at a Lakers game with a woman who resembles Patton.

"[God] doesn't understand why his child failed to mention that," Smith said before concluding with the hashtag #Thatsall.

In October, someone leaked a video that showed Candice and Smith together at a Halloween party. The couple was the subject of a Blind Item on this blog. No one guessed the cheating husband was Smith. Many assumed the married man was his former teammate LeBron James, who has been known to step out on his wife, Savannah.

Patton, 31, has yet to comment on the messy scandal.

J.R. Smith's long-suffering wife Jewel Harris Smith (center) said a prayer, asking God to forgive her cheating husband and his rumored mistress, 'Flash' actress Candice Patton, left.

Patton was the subject of a Blind Item about a cheating pro basketball player and an actress in October.

In a video posted on her Instagram page on Tuesday, an emotional Harris addressed the rumors that her husband was cheating with Patton.

Harris said God told her to "pray about it and put it out there." She captioned the video, "Catch this good PRAYER!"

"Yo God is mad wild," Harris said before praying aloud in her car for 10 minutes.

Harris asked God to lift her cheating husband up and to surround him with angels. "God go to him where he is right now and shake him up!"

The mother of four broke down and cried as she prayed for Patton, the woman accused of breaking up their home.

"In the midst of all of this foolishness... We are all hurting. Everybody is hurting... Not just me, but my husband, he's hurting. And Candice, Lord Father God, she's hurting. I pray, Lord Father God, for Candice that you please just mend her heart, Lord Father God, for her to go out here... and seek a married man."

Smith, 34, and Harris, 35, tied the knot in August 2016. They share three daughters, Demi, Peyton and Dakota. Smith also has a daughter from a previous relationship.

Smith's daughter, Peyton, 9, trended online in 2018 after she told ESPN, "I'm just proud of him because he made the championship without getting kicked off the team."

Smith was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers on July 15, 2019.
