B. Smith’s Husband Dan Gasby Gives An Update On Her Dementia ‘She Can No Longer Spell A Word’, Opens Up About His Live-In Girlfriend
It’s been months since Dan Gasby faced controversy for living with his wife, former supermodel and restaurant owner Barbara Smith (B.Smith) who has dementia, and his girlfriend, Alexandra Lerner. Now, he has given fans a status update on how Smith is doing.
Unfortunately, she hasn’t improved recently. Gasby said,
“Everybody tells you how to live your life. But that’s while they’re living theirs and not surviving through our problems. I’m in my 60s. I lived tied up in a box five years. Childlike, Barbara can no longer spell a word.”
He then commended his wife of almost 30 years and saluted her previous success.
“A trailblazer who overcame everything, she was transcultural. She didn’t have straight hair. She was a face in magazines. Her beauty products sold in major stores. She brought people together. People of color. Her restaurants made everyone feel welcome.”
He also reassured fans Smith is doing just fine as he gets close with his girlfriend Lerner.
“I take care of Barbara. I’ll always take care of her. My daughter, Dana, who’s 32, is caring for her. My ladyfriend Alexandra is taking care. We’ve gone through the whole circle of brain foundations. Diagnosed with dementia in 2013, Barbara then told me to live my life. It would maybe not be bad if I weren’t so lonely.”
“Alex’s father suffered with this same illness. She saw her father who was all alone become a child. She understands what this is like. She was married, had three children and the husband left her. Look, we all watch over Barbara. We take walks with her. We are all caring for her.”
He’s shown that he and Smith and Lerner are quite the trio as he never fails to post photos of them on social media.
