Her husband has been phenomenal in roles and portrayals in Happy Endings and Happy Together. These roles took his fame to a new level. 

How did she meet her future husband?

Wayans Jr., in an interview, revealed the story about how they first met after he was asked if he has had done it to his woman that maybe he shouldn’t have done it. 

According to him, he met his future wife Samara at a random dinner in Miami

At the dinner, there was him, Samara and a bunch of her friends. The fact was "They" didn’t really click that night and just had a bit of talk, but they attempted to set him up with her cousin. 

He didn’t get along with her either because she was not of his type. Luckily, he happened to meet her the next day at the party in Miami. Seeing him, Samara was like, Hey Damon, and he walked up to her to hug her. 

Then she knees him on the balls and started to laugh hysterically, and that’s when he punched her slightly in the vagin*, after which she laughed harder. 

At the time, Damon felt that she was ridiculous thinking about who knees on the balls. When the host asked if he was drunk, he said he had just got there, so he was not drunk, but  Samara might have been.

Her relationship with her husband

While talking about his CBS’s Happy Together with Build Series, Wayans Jr. discussed his relationship with Samara. 

Since the sitcom setup is ripped from real life, the host asked if he has pulled anything from his life experience giving the example of an answering machine and if there was anything that he was like this has happened to me. 

Wayans replied, saying that the answering machine thing in the pilot was just a pitch from him, and it was his idea but it wasn’t something he took from his personal life but he did put a lot of how he felt about, how his character feels about his wife in the show; he pulls that from his actual relationship. 

He further added that he is crazy about his wife, saying her to be awesome and they have fun together. 

He also revealed that he still buys DVDs and that he and his wife watch movies on his old computer that he had bought in 2010

Fallout Between Damon And His Ex-Girlfriend And Filing Of A Custody Case

The relationship between Damon and Aja was sour already, and it became worse when Damon wanted full custody of their daughters

The main reason, as stated earlier, was the education of Damon's kidDamon'sh Aja was not taken seriously. 

He also accused her of spending the child's supchild'sney for herself.

Aja had the primary custody of children, and both parents were legally able for the custody. 

Damon was very serious about his kids and has demanded full custody of the children. He has used the word "suffering "cholastically" and wants"his kid's education to be taken seriously. He has accused their mother, Aja, of being unable to prioritize their education. 

He wants custody so that they don't becomdon'tkid'srived of their education, and he also confirms that he will be able to help them with their homework. 

According to Damon, the main issue here is Aja puts her own needs in front of the needs of her children. 

One incident in which his ex-partner Aja took one of her daughters on a cruise vacation when she was supposed to be in the school. Because of this reason, she fell behind in the class. 

When the relationship falters between them, Aja does not provide access to girls, according to Damon.
