The violence occurred hours after Christina (left) posted the couple's wedding videos and photos on Facebook.

Timothy was reportedly cheating on his wife with a 23-year-old police officer and single mom named Celeste P.

Most workplaces have strict rules about fraternization and office romances. But Timothy and Celeste appeared to flaunt their relationship openly, forcing Christina to endure humiliation and heartbreak in her final days.

Celeste shamelessly shared images of her illicit affair with Timothy on social media under the username @Jacelmommy. In one photo, the two are seen kissing. Celeste made her Instagram page private following the public backlash.

On her Instagram account Celeste celebrated her relationship with her co-worker after the news of his death, leading one IG user to admonish her: "Wasn't he married? Show some respect to his kids."

Christina Francis, who dated Timothy Francis for 3 years before marrying him in 2017, dropped hints of her husband's betrayal in her Facebook posts.

In posts that were riddled with typos she appeared distraught over her broken marriage and she expressed her love for her 2 children:

"This day meant everything to me. This marriage was put together for a great reason, couldn't more confident and stayed forever not giving up. I love young what we had together. U you all I ever NEEDED. YOU AND I BELONGED TOGETHER AND ALWAYS. We had 6 years of experience and memories that should have taken presence over everything we dd but he got lost I petty sh*t you believed was a mistake."

Tip "T.I." Harris revealed what many women don't want to admit: that they don't want a man who isn't desired by other women.

"Them women don't really want a man who ain't got no b*tches," he said during his ExpediTIously podcast. "That's what attract you to that ni**a 'cause he had b*tches, that energy, that misogyny you speak so poorly of."

Despite having an open marriage, T.I., 40, has been accused of stepping out on his long-suffering wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 45, on multiple occasions.

T.I. implies that his wife tolerates his rampant cheating because deep down inside she's okay with the fact that other women desire her man.

Two years ago, Tameka moved into a midtown Atlanta apartment to weigh her options. She eventually moved back home to her husband.

Question: Do you want a man that no woman wants - or a man who is desired by other women?

Pastor John Gray has a lot to be thankful for. Atop his list of thanks is the fact that his wife, Aventer, never left him due to his sinful ways.

After apologizing to his wife for falling short as a man in a viral video clip in August, Pastor Gray apologized again in a lengthy Instagram post.

Gray explained where he met his wife (at church), and how she invited him into her life "and let me dance with her."

But Gray quickly realized he and Aventer were not equally yoked. He was an "unfinished" work in progress.

"She took my ring and said yes and we began our forever journey. What my dance partner didn't know was that I was very much unfinished," he wrote.

Gray said he eventually began living a "shadow life" in emotional relationships with other women.

"I failed to uphold the holy standard of God in my marriage. And I'm sorry. Although you are the only woman I've ever slept with, emotional unfaithfulness is just as wrong. Sin is sin. People want to minimize one sin over another, when it all can get you sent to hell."

A few months ago I sat down from leading at Relentless. My life wasn’t in order. Church isn’t first. My wife is. This is my wife. She is from God. She is a life giver. She is a kingdom builder. Her name is Aventer. I met her at church. She was worshipping God through dance. Over time, she allowed me in her life and let me dance with her. She took my ring and said yes and we began our forever journey. What my dance partner didn’t know was that I was very much unfinished. I never knew what consistent discipline, planning, leadership, manhood, or personal holiness in action from a man’s standpoint looked like. Living a shadow life, God was unwilling to let me die assuming I was whole. I failed to uphold the holy standard of God in my marriage. And I’m sorry. Although you are the only woman I’ve ever slept with, emotional unfaithfulness is just as wrong. Sin is sin. People want to minimize one sin over another, when it all can get you sent to hell. My marriage forced me to face both of me. Flesh versus spirit. It is every man’s battle. Loving God isn’t enough. Preaching Jesus isn’t enough. Face yourself. Get delivered. Or hurt the ones who actually love you the most. I started intense counseling (personal and for my marriage) in the summer. Scariest thing ever. Most necessary thing ever. I had no one to blame. My life is my responsibility. Admit your wrong. God deserves better. My wife deserves better. The pain I caused her is immeasurable. Seeing her name in blogs because of things I did broke my soul. So since I was the cause of public embarrassment, let me be JUST AS LOUD ABOUT PUBLIC HONOR. Aventer you are a miracle to me. I am sorry for the pain I have caused you. You name should have NEVER come up in any conversation in any negative way with anyone ever. I must do the work to earn your trust. I’ve lived a life I’m not proud of in so many areas, but before I die, I will be the man God intended and the husband that Your heart can rest with. I’ll be the father my kids can be proud of. I’ll be the pastor Relentless can stand behind. I’m in the process and I will stay in it. May the man I am becoming match the vision God showed you. I love you.

Cardi B filed a motion to dismiss her petition for divorce from her cheating husband, Offset.

TMZ reports Cardi filed docs in Georgia to officially dismiss the divorce she set in motion back in September. Cardi was dragged on social media by fans who accused her of pulling a stunt.

Cardi took to social media recently to deny rumors that her divorce action was just a stunt to keep her relevant amid the coronavirus outbreak. She then deactivated her Twitter account.

She has up to 30 days after deactivation to restore her Twitter account or it will be deleted permanently.

According to TMZ, Cardi filed her dismissal "without prejudice" -- which is legal jargon for reserving the right to file the divorce again at a later date.

It's the second time she's changed her mind about leaving Offset. Although, she didn't actually file divorce papers the first time.

A judge still has to sign off on the dismissal to make it final -- for now.

Cardi B has temporarily deactivated her Twitter account after blasting teenagers who criticized her for taking her cheating husband back.

Twitter allows users to temporarily deactivate their accounts for 30 days before the account is deleted permanently.

Before deactivating her account, Cardi, 28, threw a temper tantrum on Instagram Live, attacking teens who continue to ridicule her for reuniting with the Migos rapper a month after filing for divorce.

"A whole bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life like I'm mother f**king Ariana Grande or something. Like I came from Disney or something.

"I'm so tired of people saying I've got to continuously explain myself. I didn't put my divorce out there, a f**king court clerk put it out there, and because people are making rumors up, 'Oh, this guy has a girl pregnant', I have to address it."

Cardi also slammed fans for criticizing serial cheater, Offset: "Then you guys want to be harassing this n**ga. Bro, if I work things out, why are you going to this n**ga's Twitter to harass him? That don't make no f**king sense.

"Y'all want to call yourself fans, I don't give a f**k. I'm tired of it. I do whatever the f**k I want to do. I love my fans and I'm grateful and thankful for what you do but some of y'all really be acting like I be sleeping with y'all. Offset is not the only f**king problem that I deal with. To be honest with you, my marriage is one of the least worries that I have right now."

WENN/Avalon

The couple reconciled over Cardi's birthday weekend and were spotted kissing and hugging in a series of photographs. But fans weren't buying it. They accused Cardi and Offset of staging their "divorce" because both fell off during the coronavirus lockdown.

Days later, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper confirmed they were back together, stating: "One day I'm happy, the next day I wanna beat a n**ga up... Then it's like, I start missing. It's really hard not to talk to your best friend. It's really hard to have no d**k."

Dominic West and his long-suffering wife Catherine Fitzgerald staged a display of affection for the paparazzi after the 50-year-old actor was caught cheating with his 31-year-old co-star Lily James (pictured above).

Dominic, best known for his role as Jimmy McNulty in HBO's The Wire, was photographed passionately kissing Lilly in Rome.

Photos obtained by UK's The Sun newspaper show Dominic passionately kissing Lilly's neck while they dined at a restaurant in Rome on Sunday. Other photos show him with his hands seductively around her waist while riding an electric scooter. [See photos here]

According to Backgrid.com, Dominic and Lilly "spent two nights of love in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with a panoramic view over the whole city and just at two minutes walk from the Spanish steps.

"They only left the hotel for a few hours riding an electric scooter around the Spanish Steps and Piazza di Pietra."

Dominic and Lily (pictured together in London in 2018) filmed a BBC adaptation of Nancy Mitford's novel The Pursuit of Love over the summer.

A friend told Britain's Daily Mail, Dominic's wife Catherine, to whom he has been married since 2010 was "devastated" by the paparazzi photos.

"Catherine has seen the pictures and she's devastated," the pal said. "I came over to speak with her as soon as I knew about them. Catherine has been trying to speak with Dominic but he's not answering his phone. She's totally shocked because she didn't know anything was going on. They were very much together, so this is completely out of the blue.

"She thought they had a good marriage and now it's probably over. That's how she feels right now but the two of them need to speak but at the moment, she's lost for words."

After the bombshell photos surfaced online on Monday, Dominic hastily returned home to his $2.3 million (USD) country cottage in Wiltshire, England, where he and his wife posed for loving photos.

The photos show Dominic and his wife Catherine outside the cottage kissing and embracing each other while Dominic looks directly into the camera with a smirk on his face. [See the photos here]

A body language expert who analyzed the photos called the couple's show of affection "a stunt".

"Dominic decides to avoid any eye contact [with his wife] and pin his eye expression on the cameras instead," body language expert Judi James said.

Catherine appeared to have been crying. She carried a tissue and a hand-written note which she propped on a stone wall outside the cottage.

The note reads: "Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together. Thank you."

The note was signed, "Catherine & Dominic."

Dominic and Catherine share four children together - daughter Dora, 14, son Senan, 12, son Francis, 11, and daughter Christabel, 7. Dominic is also dad to 20-year-old daughter Martha from a previous relationship.

Cardi B is seeking primary custody of her 2-year-old daughter Kulture in her divorce from promiscuous rapper Offset.

The "WAP" rapper, real name Belcalis Almanzar, filed documents in a Fulton County, Georgia court on Tuesday to end her three-year marriage to the Migos star. A hearing is set for November 4.

WENN/Avalon

Further details from the legal papers reveal that Cardi is asking for legal and primary physical custody of Kulture, and wants Offset to pay child support.

But word is that Offset is broke due to child support payments for his 4 other children and the coronavirus lockdowns prohibiting nightclub gigs and national tours. The Migos rapper has very little income and a ton of bills.

WENN/Avalon

In the documents, Cardi states via her lawyer that the marriage is "irretrievably broken". Adding that the former couple are currently separated, the papers add that "there are no prospects for a reconciliation".

According to the paperwork, the divorce is "contested", with Cardi listed as the plaintiff and Offset the defendant. However, the "Bodak Yellow" star ultimately hopes it will be "settled by agreement of the parties".

WENN/Avalon

Following the filing of the papers, a source close to Cardi told TMZ.com that she had no idea that her lawyer was going to be state her case that way, and she actually wants the split to be as "amicable" as possible.

"She wants Offset to have joint custody of Kulture and is determined to have an amicable, co-parenting situation," the insider told the website. "Her divorce petition also says she wants child support. (But) she does not want any support from Offset ... in the financial department, she's the Bank of Cardi."

Rumor has it that Cardi knows she would be in for a fight if she sought sole custody of Kulture. Offset knows all of Cardi's secrets -- dirt she doesn't want exposed in court papers.

Cardi B's ill-advised marriage to promiscuous rapper Offset appears to be over. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia court on Tuesday, according to Page Six.

The couple wed almost three years ago to the day and shares a two-year-old daughter, Kulture. A hearing has been set for November 4.

NYP/BLM / BACKGRID

According to a confidential source who has vast knowledge of this matter: Covid-19 is the reason behind the divorce action.

The source said the couple realized they weren’t marriage material during the lockdown. They discovered they have totally different personalities. Also, the lockdown made it harder for Offset to communicate with his Atlanta side piece.

With no club dates and no tours, Cardi and Offset were faced with the difficult task of getting to know each other without distractions at home.

They quickly discovered their 22,000 sq. ft. leased Buckhead mansion was not big enough for the 2 of them.

All-In-Media / BACKGRID

The source said Cardi was adamant that Offset take the passwords off his phones. "What are you hiding?!" was a familiar refrain in their home.

The couple's marriage hit a wall when Cardi accused the Migos star of cheating on her, but she decided to save their marriage, telling Vogue last year, "When me and my husband got into our issues - you know, he cheated and everything - and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me, but it's real-life s**t.

Leon Bennett/WireImage

"If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you're depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you're not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation."

The ex-couple do not have a prenup in place. Cardi may be forced to pay Offset spousal support.

Andrew Gillum hoped to restore his respect and dignity in an exclusive interview with Tamron Hall.

The full interview will air during the Season 2 premiere of 'Tamron Hall' on Monday, Sept. 14.

The 41-year-old father of three told Tamron he cried every day since paramedics found him lying on the floor in his own vomit in a South Beach hotel room with a naked male escort in March.

Travis Dyson, an ER nurse who advertised his male escort services online, voluntarily surrendered his registered nursing license after the news broke.

Photos depicted bottles of prescription and illegal drugs with pills strewn on the floor and on a nightstand.

The former Democratic candidate for governor was so inebriated he could not communicate with paramedics. Gillum was not arrested despite the presence of illegal drugs in the room.

Gillum addressed the scandal that derailed his promising political career in his talk with Tamron. He said he hoped to redeem himself and he went into alcohol rehab after years of fighting depression.

"I'm still here by the grace of God. So much of my recovery has been about trying to get over shame. Shame is not that I did that, but I am bad."

When asked why he was in a $220-a-night hotel room with a naked male escort, Gillum responded, "I would say the reason why I went to that room was probably no different than how anybody might communicate with someone that they are in a friendship relationship whatever with. I understand very well what people assume about that."

He also addressed the shocking photo that showed him nude on the bathroom floor in his own vomit.

"When that photo came out, I didn't recognize the person on the floor," he said.

"That was not anything more than a person being at their most vulnerable state, unconscious, having given no consent, and someone decided to use a moment where I was literally lying in my own vomit."

Police also found a vial of injectable medication that is typically prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction.

Gillum, a former rising superstar in the Democratic Party, narrowly lost the 2018 gubernatorial race in Florida that would have made him the first Black governor of the nation's largest swing state.

Gillum was joined in the interview by his long-suffering wife R. Jai Howard, who discussed the impact of her husband's scandal on their marriage and their family and what the future holds.
