- Chris Attoh has finally confirmed his divorce from Damilola Adegbite
- The two had earlier denied rumors of their breakup
After months of speculation, YEN.com.gh can confirm that Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh has ended his marriage to Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite after just barely two years.
The duo got married in 2015 amidst a lot of pomp and glory in a ceremony that was attended by several celebrities both from Ghana and Nigeria.
Shortly after the marriage, the couple welcomed Brian Attoh, their first son.
However, 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 both Chris Attoh and Damilola, who maintained that they were still together.
In a recent interview with Nigerian celebrity news website, BellaNaija.com, Chris Attoh opened up on his relationship with now ex-wife, Damilola Adegbite.
He told the publication, "since the divorce, we are obviously now reworking things to create a new balance between work, spending time with and raising our son".
This happens to be the first time the Ghanaian screen heartthrob has spoken about the divorce rumors and confirmed the divorce.
Attoh, however, stated that Damilola Adegbite "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."
