‘The Blessings Are Right Around the Corner’: Ronnie and Shamari DeVoe Open Up About the Importance of Married Couples Staying Together

Ronnie and wife Shamari DeVoe both achieved fame separately by being a part of some of the hottest musical groups. Ronnie is a member of the legendary group New Edition and Shamari made up one-third of the group Blaque, which was founded by TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.

The two found love with each other after meeting at an award show in 2001, and later married in 2006 and welcomed twin boys in 2017. But while their story may sound like a fairytale, the couple experienced many ups and downs in their relationship, including infidelity, that took a toll on their marriage.
