James “Ghost” St. Patrick is the on-screen criminal we’ve come to love on Starz’s Power, who does his saintly name no justice. Off-screen, Omari Hardwick, who plays Ghost, is far from the not-so-innocent drug dealer. He’s one of the hottest actors on TV right now, so his personal life is bound to get some attention. Unfortunately, Omari Hardwick’s wife got some negative attention from his fans. Find out about Jennifer Pfautch and Omari Hardwick’s marriage, right here.
Fans Call Her “Ugly”
There are fans who are vocally sad that their favorite star is off the market, while there are others who cross the line and question their choice of spouse. Omari Hardwick and his wife went through major harassment from his fans in 2014.
He was known to keep his family out of the media spotlight and there’s very little known about Jennifer Pfautch. She has a website, where she posts inspirational words of wisdom and some great recipes.
However, he decided to pay no attention to cameras as he went on a date to a New York City restaurant with Pfautch and their little ones in tow. The photographs of their date became a hot topic on the Twitterverse, especially because it was one of the rare sightings of Jennifer Pfautch fans had seen.
Pfautch has an amazingly tall and toned build. Some Twitter users were quick to react to her appearance, and the fact that Hardwick is married to a white woman.
Pfautch was called “ugly” (and every other related word) while the actor’s taste in women was questioned.
Many of his fans didn’t see anything wrong with his wife, but the level of hate from a few caused Hardwick to reach his breaking point.
Hardwick Defended His Wife
If there was any doubt that Hardwick loved his wife, he proved that he is husband of the year when he clapped back against people commenting about Pfautch.
In a lengthy Twitter tirade, Hardwick said he wished the haters could experience what it’s like to constantly be in the spotlight and know the real “ugly” characteristics of some people.
I wish all of you could experience celebrity for a week to understand the LEVEL of ugly in certain diseases (called human beings).

Take that, haters!
In the same string of tweets, he mentioned losing his siblings and a son. Hardwick and Pfautch are parents to two little kids —Nova and Brave— who have been seen a few times on their Instagram accounts.
He also thanked his fans for their constant support while telling the nosey-bodies to reflect on their behavior.
Standing up for her…that’s all a woman can ask for!
She Convinced Him to Join Power
We can’t imagine anyone else but Omari Hardwick as Ghost St. Patrick. But imagine if he didn’t accept the role at all! The 43-year-old was initially hesitant to take the role when Power was offered to him. So what (or who) made him take it?
In a lengthy Instagram post, Hardwick wrote that he was content with his work over the last decade and was very close to turning down a role that would raise him to “high stature in this business.” But his wife wanted him to accept the role.
“Between the 45 days of prayer from a one @mrsjaeh asking God to ‘help me embrace my Power & Dominion’ (yes, that word: power), & sitting down even a month after THAT with a one @ckagbohofficial & then talking to a one @50cent …..God had answered that prayer & spoke to me,” he wrote.
Instead of hating Mrs. Hardwick, we should be grateful that she gave us Ghost!
