“keep her from working as an actress.”

Countess also accused David of abusing her for several years. She even accused him of threatening to leak explicit videos of her. The hearing judge provided a restraining order for David to stay at least 100 yards away from Vaughn for her safety.

Countess Vaughn was married to Joseph James before dating David Whitten. They first started dating in November 2001 and married two months later, on January 16, 2002. Coincidentally, it was also the marriage year of a popular American actor, David Eigenberg.

Sadly, it doesn't look like the relationship between Countess, and Joseph went too well, as they filed for divorce three years into their married life. They broke up in January 2005 and officially divorced on July 3, 2005.

Vaughn gave birth to a son, Jaylen James, on July 2003 when she was still married to Joseph. After the divorce, the custody of the then two years old was handed to Vaughn, who has raised him to be quite a handsome lad. Needlessly to say, Jaylen is the step-sibling of Sasha Whitten.
