According to some source, the reason for their separation was Phifer cheated on Williams, he said;  

Not the whole time but you know we were only married for less than a year. Then there was a point because I bought us a house and we were living on opposite sides of the house. We were technically married but you’re going two or three days living in the house and you aren’t even talking to, you talking about walking up and down the stairs past each other and you aren’t even talking. Then you got out in the world and you have your own group of friends and she has her peoples and you just become separate.

Despite the difference, Phifer and Williams are good friends now. Phifer is married to Reshelet Barnes since 2013.
