The tragic death of Chris Smith, a former defensive end in the NFL, has shaken the football community to the core, as he touched many on the football field.
We also look back at the personal life of Smith and all that he leaves behind. While it's unknown who he was dating at the time of his demise, his last confirmed relationship was two years ago with B. Simone.
Simone is a comedian who dated the football star for a few months before their relationship ended in 2021. She has appeared on Wild N' Out on-and-off since Season 5 and is a Dallas native.
When she was dating Chris Smith, she called him the love of her life. However, things soured, and the player moved from the Las Vegas Raiders to the Baltimore Ravens. When she broke up, she did not specify the reason:
“Don’t introduce me to a vibe you can’t maintain. Be consistent, or you won’t be here.”
She also commented on fearful men and those who consider themselves superior. Based on these indications, it does not seem to have been a happy split. The mutual antipathy was also corroborated by Chris Smith at the time, who wrote:
“Success is like lust; she’s good for the touch. She’s good for the moment, but she’s never enough.”
