Actor Chris Attoh confirms his marriage to Damilola Adegbite has crashed
After months of speculation, Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh has ended his marriage to Nigerian actress Damilola Adegbite after just barely two years.
The pair got married in 2015 in a ceremony that was attended by several celebrities both from Ghana and Nigeria.
The 36-year-old Ghanaian star proposed to Adegbite on a boat cruise in Manhattan, New York in August 2014.
The duo tied the knot on February 14, Valentine’s Day, at the La Villa Boutique Hotel in Accra.
Shortly after the marriage, the couple welcomed Brian Attoh, their first son.
Rumors were rife that the two had broken up and gotten a divorce just months after the birth of their child. But these rumors were quickly debunked by the couple, who maintained that they were still together.
In a recent interview with BellaNaija, Chris Attoh opened up on his relationship with now ex-wife, Damilola.
When asked how he and his now ex-wife balanced their marriage, son and work, he said, “I believe throughout our marriage, it has probably been one of the most challenging things we have ever done, and however, the key word is balance.
”At times when we both had to work, our parents would be there to hold the fort. God bless family because they were and still are very supportive.
”However, since the divorce, we are obviously now reworking things to create a new balance between work, spending time with and raising our son. Dami is a wonderful woman and an amazing mother. Despite our differences, she and I will always be friends. So more than anything, we will find ways to continue to make sure that Brian can still have a balanced upbringing filled with love and support. Both our families have been and are still very supportive in helping us take care of our son Brian when we can’t be there due to work.”
