Chris Attoh and Jenifer married in October 2018. Shortly after Chris divorced his first wife, Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite. With whom he shares a son.
Last week, Chris Attoh sparked speculations on social media that his second marriage was on the rocks, after deleting all of Jenifer’s pictures from his social media pages.
The Greenbelt Police Department has also added that Jenifer was married to two men. Chris and the other a notorious drug lord currently serving a 20-year jail term.
