Jeniva Barrett Samuels is a celebrity wife known thanks to her husband, Asante Samuel, an American former football player. As a player, Samuel played as a cornerback for most of his career in the National Football League (NFL). Jeniva celebrates her birthday on January 3rd every year.
Her Professional Career
Regarding her professional career, not much is known about Jeniva Barrett Samuels, but she is a reality television series star. She was featured in the reality series Baller Wives for being a football player’s wife; the show features the lives of ladies who have been in romantic relationships with American football players.
Jeniva Barrett Samuels also appeared in another reality show, Basketball Wives, for a minimal role. Besides being a reality tv star, Jeniva also owns an underwear and swimwear line known as Jeniva Nicole.
In her personal life, Jeniva Barrett Samuels married Asante Samuel in 2012; their wedding ceremony occurred in a Mandarin Oriental Miami, Florida, US. They had been in a relationship for some time before tying the knot; it is believed they started their relationship in 2007.
While shooting Baller Wives, Jeniva claimed that Stacey Chambers slept with her husband in a parking lot, though the affair happened before they were even married. It is funny how she married Asante despite knowing he was sleeping with other women while dating.
She also accused Stacy of sleeping with her brother, and things got messier. In Stacey’s defence, she said that Jeniva’s husband was not her type and did not have enough money for her, so there was no way he would have a romantic relationship with him.
Born in Accra, Ghana, Asante Samuel was raised in Florida, United States, where he attended school. In college football, he played for UCF Knights, and in 2003, he was drafted by New England Patriots, a team he played for up to 2007.
