Early life, family and education

From 1980 to 1984 he studied Business at the University of Iowa, earning a Bachelor’s degree. He has since been working with various companies, and has an extensive background in developing marketing strategies.
Marriage with Jasmine Guy
Terrence and Jasmine tied the knot in August 1998, after knowing each other for more than a decade. In 1999, they welcomed their daughter Imani, who is now a promising basketball player. The two mostly stayed away from publicity, aside from appearing together for several red carpet events and charity fundraisers. In 2008, the media reported that Terrence and Jasmine separated and were about to divorce.
Although they tried to keep their divorce process as private as they could, their separation made headlines and sparked a lot of rumors. Jasmine only recently opened up about what she was going through during that time.
She has revealed that the court had ordered Terrence to pay child support for her, however, he apparently stopped fulfilling this obligation in 2010, and reportedly still owes around $40,000 to his ex-wife.
In 2009, both Terrence and Jasmine had to file for bankruptcy, with Terrence’s debt being around $95,000, while Jasmine owed more than $120,000. Their divorce was finalized in the same year, and Jasmine received full custody of their daughter, Imani. Terrence and Jasmine cited irreconcilable differences on their divorce papers, but the real reason for their separation has stayed a secret.
