Chris Attoh has disclosed that rumours of him being gay were mere propaganda started by a lady fan who harassed him for sex years ago at the National Theatre.
Chris told Accra-based Angel TV that because he refused to have sex with the girl as demanded by her, she decided to spread rumours about him been gay. He continued that the girl vowed to go to the press after the incident.
“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.
“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,” the actor revealed.
Some people have attributed his recent divorce to him being gay but the actor says that will not make him bring to the pubic the full details of his divorce.
Chris was married to Damilola Adegbitey but they divorced this year. They have a child together.
