AceShowbiz - J.R. Smith is back lurking on his rumored side chick Candice Patton's Instagram. "The Flash" actress has been posting pictures from her new magazine photoshoot, and the former Cleveland Cavaliers player liked almost all of them to show his approval.
The hookup rumors between Smith and Candice only went viral in December after he was caught walking her dog. However, they were first spotted together at a Halloween party in Las Vegas where she made a suggestive gesture and he responded with a grin.
As the internet went abuzz with their alleged affairs, he wiped his Instagram pictures dating all the way back to 2017. Meanwhile, his wife Jewel Harris posted a teary video, hoping to give their marriage another chance.
However, Smith was dismissive of her in his own post. "No weapon formed against me," he wrote. "IG ain't a place for relationships! But God told me to tell y'all I've been separated for months he doesnt understand why his child failed to mention that… #thatsall."
Despite his claim that they had split for months, Jewel still posted a picture of her with Smith in October when he first hung out with Candice. She also celebrated the NBA star in a September post with a loving note, "When you know...YOU KNOW‼️ Jesus I'm so glad I KNEW Ladies...celebrate your Husband more often because they are just as deserving as WE ARE! @teamswish 'YOU ROCK MY WORLD' (Wanda voice)."
Earlier this week, the estranged couple put aside their differences and reunited for their second daughter Dakota's 3rd birthday.
