About Chris Attoh’s first marriage to Damilola Adegbite
Chris Attoh’s first marriage to Nigerian actress Damilola Adegbite lasted for two years before things fell apart between them.
Initially, the couple’s union seemed like a match made in heaven. The ex-lovers got married on February 14, 2015, which coincided with the Valentine’s Day celebration of that year at La Villa Boutique Hotel, Accra, Ghana.
They kick-started their affair after meeting on the set of “Tinsel”. They kept their dating period very low-key at first, publicizing it only after they got engaged in August 2014 with Chris proposing to Damilola on a boat cruise in Manhattan, New York City.
They had their child a month after the engagement in September of the same year. Their fairytale marriage crashed in September 2017. It is not known what exactly led to their separation, however, the estranged couple still maintain a cordial relationship for the sake of their child.
According to Damilola Adegbite, her crashed marriage taught her many lessons as it dawned on her that love is not the only criteria needed to sustain a lifetime commitment like marriage. Chris Attoh, on the other hand, speaks highly of his ex-wife emphasizing that they are very good friends.
About Chris Attoh’s second marriage to Bettie Jennifer
Chris Attoh got married to Bettie Jennifer several months after his divorce from Damilola. Chris and Bettie got married on October 6, 2018. Unfortunately, the marriage was short-termed as Bettie was murdered barely a year after they got married.
The young woman was reportedly shot dead at the parking lot of her workplace in Maryland, USA, in May 2019. Reports sighted by DNB Stories Africa had it that Bettie was allegedly murdered by her ex-husband, Kedrick who she was still legally married to and on the verge of divorcing at the time of her death.
It was said that Kedrick was a drug dealer serving a jail term as of then. Chris Attoh was said to have been paraded as a suspect and even invited for questioning by the US Police since he made a rather suspicious post about relationships and loyalty some hours before Bettie was killed. He was later confirmed innocent after much investigation. The 42-year-old actor also lost his father some months after the death of Bettie.
