Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh was formerly married to Nollywood actress, Damilola Adegbite which was reported to have lasted for 2years.
They got engaged in August, 2014 and shortly after, they got married in February, 2015, just after they have worked together on an M-net series, “Tinsel,” and the short marriage, produced a son for them both.
Immediately the news on their separation broke out, both parties didn’t acknowledge it and it was looking like a spectaculation generated by some persons to jinx their divorce. But, that was not true as further investigation proved that, they were divorced for real and this time, they tried to spin the story by not directly answering but rather giving several hints on the issue. The marriage actually did crash in 2017.
When it became known publicly that they were divorced, Chris Attoh and ex-wife Damilola Adegbite made it known that they are in good terms but reworking things to create a balance between work and raising their son which is a priority for them.
Shortly after his divorce to Damilola, the actor found love again so quickly to an American based lady whose name was Jenifer Bettie and they both got married, on the 6th of October 2018.
It was reported that, she’s been married before but was yet to be officially divorced from her husband who is in prison for trafficking drugs, but rather, was in the process of doing so before she was shot dead.
The love birds however got married on the 6th of October, 2018 and this time, the marriage came to an unexpected end following the tragic incident that happened on a Friday evening at about 5pm in Maryland, USA. But, the case is still being investigated.
According to Sahara Reporters, it was gathered in the report of the incident, “Bettie Jenifer left the office in the 6300 block of Ivy lane and was working to her car when a man armed with a gun, approached her, when she tried to run, the man followed her and fired her multiple times with at least, one short hitting her and the gunman made his escape in a getaway vehicle.”
This truly, is tragic as the newly weds were set to spend the rest of their lives together, although Chris has tried to put up a show of strength, but, it is never easy to loose a loved one and for that reason, his ex-wife has reached out to him.
During an interview with #bbcpidgin, she said, she reached out to former husband, Chris Attoh because they are in a good place though not together, and added that, that was the right thing to do. “As someone who was once in her life, she had to check up on him to know of a truth, how he was doing.”
Still on the interview, she was asked if anyone is in the picture yet, she said, “make that one wait first, that love matter ee, make e just wait, make I rest first.”
What a brave thing to have done Damilola👏 and we hope that Chris Attoh heals from this.
