Jennifer is a pretty private person and as a result, we don’t even know what her date of birth is but it is assumed that she was born in the 1970s in Pennsylvania, United States. She has not even revealed anything about her family background so the only thing we know about her family is that she has a sister named Amanda Misner. Her sister Amanda works at First Commonwealth Bank as a consumer loan ops specialist and she lives in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania.
This is the only known information about her family so other than this we don’t know who her parents are or how many other siblings she has. Reports have shown that Jennifer is a graduate of Penns State University but we don’t have any idea on what she graduated on.

We don’t have the exact date of their wedding or marriage but we do know that they married 5 years after their first encounter in 2009. They were madly in love and Diamond even revealed that he wanted to have children in an interview in October 2012.
Just like Diamond wanted, Misner also got pregnant but unfortunately, due to extrauterine pregnancy, she had a miscarriage. They certainly were left with grief and pain along with high medical bills.

He added, she was just his girlfriend and Diamond wore a ring just to show how much he loved her and he already thinks of her as his wife. He further mentioned that Diamond had a serious financial problem so he did not want to get married.
Jennifer’s Husband’s Sex Tape Controversy
Back in 2006, Jennifer’s husband Diamond’s sex tape “Screeched – Saved by the Smell” went viral on the internet. In an interview with Mario Lopez, Diamond said that he choose to make a sex tape because he was not getting any success as an actor.
In the 50 minute video, we see Diamond with two unknown women and Diamond has admitted that his decision to make a sex tape is the most worst and embarrassing decision he has ever made. He also revealed that he made a video cause he was competing with his friends.
Furthermore, in 2013, he was inspired to make a sex tape because of Paris Hilton‘s sex tape which made millions of profit.
