Who is Jermall Charlo’s wife? Their rocky marriage detailed

Jermall Charlo is an undefeated middleweight boxer facing accusations of picking opponents he can beat. An agitated Charlo responded to the fan allegations by naming fighters he’d like to box. He said during an Instagram Live session:

“Fuck all ya. I wanna fight Oscar De La Hoya, David Benavidez, Demetrius Andrade, and Chris Eubank [Jr.] – whatever his name is – and GGG [Golovkin], too. Don’t ask me ever again. I just told y’all this shit. I told y’all what’s poppin’. Alright.”

Charlo listed exceptional fighters, but it’s unlikely he’ll face any of them soon. Jermall Charlo’s wife, Shantel Charlo, claimed via Instagram Live that Charlo’s never fighting again and is headed to bankruptcy. 

Jermall and Shantel were high school sweethearts at Alief Hastings High School in Houston, Texas. “We started from the bottom together and she wants me to be the best,” Jermall said on Showtime.

Shantel told the outlet that she was going through a tough time when she met Jermall. “My mom was gone,” she said. “I was taking care of me and my brother and I needed help. He just walked into my life at the perfect time.”

Fighting tears, Shantel described the value of Jermall’s assistance during that period, saying that Charlo saved her. She continued:

“He actually saved me. I was just a kid with nothing. He was actually knowledgeable of life at the age of 18. He already knew what he wanted to do in life. I sat down and watched him – and it motivated me.”

Shantel said that Jermall proved to her that success followed hard work and consistency. “My first minute, I knew I would marry her,” Jermall said. “She cared about me being great. I can’t let her down.”

Shantel Charlo is a licensed Esthetician running a business named Skin by Shantel. She specializes in microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, and acne facials.

Jermall and Shantel haven’t revealed the details about their marriage, but they’ve shared plenty about their family life. 

The couple raised five children in their huge Fort Bend County, Texas, residence. The kids occasionally appear on their parents’ Instagram pages. In November 2021, she wished her oldest child a happy birthday via Instagram, writing:

“Today I celebrate 12 years of life with my first born son. As you grow into your teenage years my prayer is that you remember that hard work only pays off when your putting in the work and shortcuts will only produce shortcomings. Stay gracious, humble and always put God first.”

Shantel Charlo posted a video on her Instagram stories claiming that Jermall couldn’t pay for his house and that he’d thrown her in jail. She said:

“For all his fucking fans, the nigger never fighting again. This house is gonna get fucking… bankruptcy. Whatever. They’re gonna foreclose this bitch because he can’t afford to fiucking pay for it. That’s how stupid he is.”

On 18th August 2022, Shantel was arrested on charges of assault causing bodily injury and released on a $750 bond. “Jermall Charlo is putting me in jail!” Shantel captioned her Instagram story. “It’s ok. I will do my time.”

Shantel’s recent posts suggest her relationship with Jermall has hit a rough patch. Fans have noted that Charlo isn’t wearing her wedding ring in her recent uploads. 

During an Instagram Live session, Shantel reacted angrily to speculation about her marriage. She used homophobic slurs to dismiss commentators publicizing rumors about her life.
