The couple had dated each other for quite some time before marrying on March 30, 2013, in Beverly Hills. Mekhi was dating Oni Souratha and also had a son named Mekhi Thira Phifer Jr. with her in 2007.

According to ABC News, back in 2014, when Mekhi filed for bankruptcy, it was mentioned that Reshelet made $7,545 per month, and by the looks of it, it must have increased by a considerable amount by now.

No Socal Media Accounts

The most surprising fact of all is that Reshelet has no social media accounts. It is beyond belief that she is not on social media. Well, it may be to avoid unnecessary rumors and misconceptions that come with being Mekhi Phifer's wife. But it is still pretty bizarre to see someone with no accounts on social media at this point in time.

Or it could be that she is present in the world of social media but with a different name to avoid magazines and tabloids.

Reshelet Was Only Source Of Income In The Family

Back in 2014, when Mekhi filed for bankruptcy, Reshelet handled the expenses. As mentioned earlier, Reshelet made up $7,545 per month in 2014 and in the file, it was mentioned that the family expenses were about $11k so, it was all on Reshelet's shoulder to keep the family running.

Nevertheless, it is not the case now as Mekhi is now involved in his career and earning well.

No Biological Children

Mekhi and Barnes have been married for 7 years and have been dating each other for a decade now. But the only children they have are the two sons- Omikaye Phifer and Mekhi Thira Phifer Jr., from Mekhi's previous relationships. We don't know the exact reason behind this, but we can speculate that they consider two wonderful sons equally valuable and love them wholeheartedly.
