About Shemar Moore’s marriage and wedding

As of the time of publishing this article (January 2024), Shemar Moore is unmarried and has no wife. However, he is currently in a relationship with Jesiree Dizon and has been since 2020.

There have been multiple reports in the media stating that Shemar Moore is a divorced man, having married actress Sanaa Lathan for nearly five years (1991 – 1996). DNB Stories Africa could not fully verify that Shemar Moore and Sanaa Lathan’s marriage did happen.

Shemar Moore has also previously dated some popular women in the entertainment industry including the likes of Toni Braxton (1994) and Halle Berry (1997). If Moore was indeed married to Sanaa Lathan from 1991 (some reports claim the wedding was in 1990), then it means that Moore was dating Braxton while still married to Sanaa Lathan. Again, there is yet to be enough proof of Shemar Moore and Sanaa Lathan’s marriage as neither of them has ever addressed the reports.

She is considered one of the best-selling female artists in history.

Toni Braxton and Shemar Moore dated back in 1994 when Moore’s acting career was just beginning to take off. In a 2013 interview with BET, Moore referred to Braxton as his first “Hollywood relationship.”

He said:

“Toni was my first Hollywood relationship. I was a baby, I didn’t know shit. I had just graduated from college and I was on Young and the Restless. She called my agent when she was shooting a video in Miami, and it just went from there … it was a wild ride.”

However, Moore’s comments did not sit right with Braxton according to sources close to her. According to an insider, Toni Braxton was upset about Shemar Moore’s remarks as he made it seem like Braxton was only after him for the sex.

The insider went on to say:

“She (Toni) thought his (Moore’s) comments were in poor taste.”

Shemar Moore was featured in Toni Braxton’s “How Many Ways” music video (1994).

About Shemar Moore’s relationship with Halle Berry

Halle Berry is an American actress, model and film director. She is popularly known for her work in movies like “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum”, “Moonfall,” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” Halle Berry was born on August 14, 1966, in Cleveland, Ohio and is currently 57 years old.

Halle Berry and Shemar Moore dated in 1977. At the time, their relationship was a quiet one because Berry had just gotten divorced from her then-husband, David Justice.

Speaking about his relationship with Halle Berry, Shemar Moore said:

“She was the first woman to really knock my socks off. I fell hard for Halle. A lot of people now know we dated , but we had to keep it hush-hush at the time because she was fresh off her divorce from David Justice. I’m still grateful for that relationship. I was smitten, not just because of who she was but because we were so similar in so many ways.”

Both Halle Berry and Shemar Moore are biracial. This common ground perhaps served to strengthen their bond.

Shemar Moore went on to add:

“She was biracial, she was kind of going through the same things I was in Hollywood. Halle was a necessary experience. It made me much stronger as a man, and knowing the calibre of women I want in the future.”
