The story of how Flex and Shanice met is pretty sweet. The two lived in the same building in San Fernando Valley and one day, they crossed paths when they both had to use an elevator. 

Even though that was Flex and Shanice's first encounter they were aware of each other being a celebrity. That's how they started talking and soon love blossomed between the two.

The Financial Struggle Of Elijah's Parents

Elijah's parents would have been much richer if the real estate market hadn't crashed during the 2010s. Flex and Shanice almost went bankrupt because of this. 

Page Six has reported that Flex and Shanice had bought a lot of properties as a long-term investment but the market crash made them poor. The article also says that the entire family was even forced to leave their LA Home. 

Elijah's parents have been each other's backbone in their marriage. They have dealt with all the highs and lows together. Of course, having no choice but to leave their home due to lack of finances was the worst time of their life. 

However, Flex and Shanice never stopped caring about each other. Flex once even borrowed $350 from his friend to celebrate his marriage anniversary with Shanice.
