Actor Chris Attoh Speaks On Allegations Of Being Involved In His Late Wife’s Murder￼
Popular Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh has finally reacted to the allegations that he was involved in the murder of his late second wife, Bettie Jennifer.
Speaking during an interview with Ghanaian media personality, Zion Felix, Attoh said he was never considered a suspect in the case involving the death of his wife.
The actor also stated that he had nothing to do with the murder of his wife although a tweet he had made at the time was suspicious
“The tweet was about being truthful in relationships. And I am a firm believer in this. Whatever you choose to call it, it’s a coincidence. But I’ll take this opportunity to state unequivocally that I was never a suspect in Bettie’s death. Never will I be.
Bettie was one of my favourite people. And, while it’s natural for law authorities to speak with loved ones and close relatives in such circumstances, you should avoid being labelled as a suspect. If I did anything, I’m not going to be here. Let me state unequivocally that I have never been a suspect in that case.”
On why it took him long to speak on the issue, Chris Attoh attributed it to his quiet and reserved demeanour.
“To tell you the truth, I’m a very private person. And if I didn’t do what I did, I’d be the most silent person in the room. Because I enjoy observing people and have nothing to prove to them. Who am I supposed to answer to, after all? And I’ve learned from my prior sins of oversharing that those who love me are affected.”
Chris Attoh also praised late Bettie Jennifer, adding that he decided to protect her memory by keeping some information to himself.
Attoh has come a long way in the happily-ever-after department and this will be his third marriage in 7years. He was once married to Nollywood sweetheart, Damilola Adegbite but they divorced in September 2017.
In October 2018, Attoh found love again and this time with a US-based businesswoman, Bettie Jennifer. However, their union came to a tragic end when Jennifer was murdered in May 2019.
In April 2021, the movie star reportedly had a secret court wedding in California to a US based investment banker, Chinecherem Eze.
