Sheletta Chapital is the childhood sweetheart and former wife of famous American actor Anthony Mackie. Mackie is popular for portraying the role of the Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but besides MCU he is also known for his role as Papa Doc in the 2002 film 8 miles.
This piece will look into everything you need to know about Mackie’s ex-wife Sheletta Capital.
Sheletta’s Family, Age, and Education
While there is no information on when exactly she was born, we do know that she was born around the late 70s in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. She comes from a mixed ethnicity and she went to McMain Magnet Secondary School. After graduating from school she then enrolled herself at Warren Easton, Sr High School.
She was raised along with her sister Shelly Chapital Autman and they are the children of Sheila Chapital and her husband but we don’t know what her father’s name is.
Sheletta is a Makeup Artist
Yes, even though she has kept most of her life private few reports have shown that Mackie’s ex-wife is a makeup artist. However, reports have not elaborated much about her career.
Sheletta and Anthony were Childhood Sweethearts
As mentioned they were childhood sweethearts but how did they end up together and how did they know each other? well, they know each other from school as both of them went to the same school. As a matter of fact, they were both just 7 years old when they first met.
Back in April 2014, Mackie was asked if there is Ms. Falcon by Queen Latifah at The Queen Latifah Show where he revealed there is a Falconette and he said that they have been dating on and off since they were seven years old.
Mackie said, “It was funny. I was coming from a very bad school and going to a very good school. And when I walked into second grade it was Dr. Seuss Day, and we had the little hot plate out and the teacher was making green eggs and ham. So I walk in and I looked and I see this little girl with these ratty pigtails and skinny legs, and I was like, ‘Wow!’ ”
He also revealed that she used to beat him up for his lunch money. However, the two lost contact for a few years before reuniting at a Hurricane Katrina benefit rock concert.
At The Late Late Show with James Corden, Mackie said, “I was at a concert and somebody said my name and I turned around and I was like I haven’t seen you in 20 years. I was like put your number in my phone and we talked cause this is when cell phones were new for me because I couldn’t afford and she put her number in my phone and it has been dope ever since.” And since Sheletta used to punch him and take his lunch money he made her pay for their first dinner.
Their Marriage and Divorce
Mackie and his childhood sweetheart kept their marriage very low and private and as per the sources, their wedding was super-secret that news of their wedding came out after six months of their marriage.
An unknown source who was at the wedding told Page Six that the wedding took place in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, the Caribbean on December 17, 2014. He further mentioned that the private wedding ceremony had around 150 guests including close friends and family.
Unfortunately, the childhood sweethearts could not last long as husband and wife because in late 2017 they filed for divorce and went their separate ways. Their divorce was just as private or secret as their wedding because the news of their divorce did not come out until TMZ shared the news in 2019.
Sheletta and Anthony Share Four Children
Even before they were married they already had two children. Their first child, a son was born in 2009, and after they were married Sheletta gave birth to their third child in November 2015.
Makie told Los Angeles Times “I recently had my third kid, and it just messed up everything that was my reality. It just changes your entire perspective on the world. Even traveling is an issue now I’ve got to buy five tickets!”
A few years after their third child, Sheletta again gave birth to a child and both she and Anthony became the parents of their fourth child. According to Mackie, his children do not care about him being an actor or being in any movies instead they are into online gaming and love to watch their favorite Twitch streamer.
“I can’t remember his name, but there’s this British dude who sits online and plays Minecraft and all these kids watch him. This dude is like Michael Jackson in my house, to my boys,” Mackie told the People.
However, both of them have been keeping their children out of any media. According to the reports, they share joint custody of their four children.
So Where is Sheletta Now?
Sources have told that she is currently living in her hometown New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.
Her Net Worth
As mentioned Sheletta is a makeup artist and I think that people in her line of work are paid well enough, and in 2021 her net worth was estimated to be at least $500,000. On the other hand, her husband is a super talented actor who has worked in various big movie projects and his net worth is estimated to be $8 million.
