His former marriage to Melody Holt fell apart after his notorious affair with his mistress Arionne Curry, which resulted in a love child.
Love & Marriage: Huntsville fans are all too familiar with the heated feud between Melody Holt and Arionne Curry. The contentious relationship between the ladies trace back several years to a devastating affair that shook the very foundation of Melody’s marriage to her ex-husband. The scars of that deeply personal betrayal have lingered, fueling the intense animosity that exists between these two women to this day.
In July 2023, Melody accused Martell of threatening her with revenge porn, which Arionne admitted to viewing and possibly being in possession of a sex tape starring, Martell and Melody. According to Arionne, she was asked to leak the tape under an anonymous account on social media by Martell.
Arionne acknowledges that she has seen the tape, but she firmly denies any involvement in its release, even though she has been approached regarding it.
“Let me make something very clear, my choosing to be professional, handle my business, ignore you, does not negate the fact that I will whoop your ass. And I mean that with everything in me!”
Melody and Martell officially divorced in March of 2021, the Holts finalized their divorce, with an Alabama judge signing off on the split on the grounds of “incompatibility of temperament.”
Martell has been a regular on all six seasons of Love & Marriage: Huntsville, a show that chronicles the lives of three influential Black couples in Huntsville, Alabama, as they work together on a real estate project, The Comeback Group.
Before his foray into reality TV, Martell worked as a teacher and coach. His professional portfolio includes being an author and CEO of the Holt Brand.
According to county records, Martell was released from jail later that evening at 7:01 pm.
