"We first crossed paths in a club during my time in Atlanta. Deion Sanders, Ron Grant, and Tiny Lister (Deebo from Friday) were there," Chestnut recalls. "I was working on a TV movie in Atlanta, and Tiny, who was an Atlanta expert, shared insights about the city.

While we were hanging out, he mentioned various people, and when I inquired about Pam, my now-wife, he advised me not to bother, saying, 'She doesn't give anybody any play.' That statement immediately piqued my interest, and I thought, 'That's the woman I need to approach.'"
