She met Lawrence when they were teenagers but married later

Chandie and Joey first met in 1993 when they were both teenagers. They met on a vacation at Walt Disney World. 

However, they only got married in 2005 because Joey was married to his first wife, Michelle Vella, before marrying her. 

They married the same year he got divorced from Vella.

Joey, in an interview with People back in 2006, while talking about their first date, said he had told Chandie that maybe they would get married there one day, pointing towards the Disney Wedding Chapel. 

Long story short, they did.

They got divorced after 15 years of marriage

Chandie and Joey were in marital bliss for 15 years before Joey filed for divorce in July 2020 at a Los Angeles courthouse, citing irreconcilable differences. 

Their divorce was finalized two years later. The ex-couple were together during their thick and thin. 

They filed for bankruptcy back in 2017, stating over $355k in debts. 

According to the documents obtained by The Blast, they only had $8000 in the bank at the time of filing and $60 cash. 

The couple sold some of their assets second-hand to overcome their financial situation. The bankruptcy was settled in 2018.

She shares two daughters with her ex-husband

Chandie and Joey share two daughters, Charleston, 16, and Liberty, 12, and have been amicably co-parenting them following their divorce. 

Back in 2020, on the occasion of Father's Day, Joey took to his Instagram to share that his two daughters are the reason for life, his greatest blessings, and that being the father of two powerful young ladies has brought more happiness and joy into his life then he could ever have imagined.

While talking about co-parenting with Chandie with US Weekly, Joey shared how he and Chandie “Take the High Road” while co-parenting their two beautiful daughters.

”At the end of the day, you always take the high road,” he said. 

He also said that there is no excuse for being anything but kind and that their relationship didn’t work on a personal level, but they still share two amazing people and got to put them first and set an example.

Talking about what went wrong in their marriage, he said it’s just irreconcilable differences. It’s just two people that aren’t right for each other. 

Nothing was done wrong other than just falling out of love with that person. You want them to be happy, and you want to be happy. 

He always tells his girls they are always going to be a family even though they don’t live in the same house, which, according to him, is inexcusable for not to work that way, he added.

Her ex-husband is currently married to actress Samantha Cope
