Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh has debunked rumours that he is gay following the collapse of his marriage with Nigerian actress Damilola Adegbite.
Speaking in a broadcast interview, the actor claimed the rumour was started by a lady who wanted to sleep with him.
According to him, the lady, who was a fan, approached him in the ‘green room’ wearing jacket after he finished hosting a show at the National Theatre, suggesting the lady was naked.
“The only time I heard about that (being gay) was a young lady friend who promised me she was going to make sure that the industry thought I am a gay,” he said on Angel TV on Wednesday night.
He explained further: “And this was after I hosted a show at the National Theatre one evening. I finished and was walking back to my green room. I was really really tired …
“I wasn’t in the mood for anything but there was a young lady who came to introduce herself as a fan and she had nothing but a jacket on and she took the jacket off.
“I don’t think the rating of the show will allow but long story short, I didn’t yield to it. I was very hot because I was going for some money. Apart from that I also felt … a piece of meat. It wasn’t something that was attractive and packaged.
“But long story short before I left the room and I asked her to put her clothes on, she promised me she was going to go to every press to tell them I am gay because she gave herself to me and I did nothing. This is a long time ago. So that is the only time I remember and I probably did hear I’m a gay but I didn’t know it’s that serious.”
