Vivica Fox Was Married To Christopher “Sixx-Nine” Harvest
In 1998, Vivica got married to Christopher “Sixx-Nine” Harvest, a vocalist and model, who was the TV host’s ex-hubby.
The couple did not share much about their marital relationship with the fans. Some intimate details, like when they started dating, the date of the engagement, and so on have not yet been revealed. However, we know that her relationship with Harvest began on sinking sand. Not only this, but she gave up the idea of having a “fairy tale” wedding – Fox still believes that she rushed into marriage too soon.
During an interview with VladTV, she revealed her total feelings about her union with “Sixx-Nine”. She said,
“I did. I hate to say that. Everyone was having their Cinderella day and I just wanted one too to be very honest with you. Why the marriage didn’t last a long time is ’cause I didn’t take the time to get to know him. I felt peer pressure.”
Therefore, although the ex-pair looked very happy together in pictures or major events, they did not really have a good time with each other.
The Reason Behind Vivica Fox-Harvest Divorce With First Husband
After almost 4 years of being together, in 2002, Fox and Harvest got divorced and called it quits. It was about time they went on separate paths because the duo was not entirely happy together. So, what was the exact reason for the divorce?
According to the sources, Fox did not like the fact that she was the breadwinner instead of Harvest. At that time, both of them were up-and-coming artists. However, Vivica seemed to earn more than her hubby did – this did not sit right with her.
As per the actress herself, Christopher “Sixx-Nine” did not care at all about his future. After his group did not get the record deal, her ex-partner did not pursue any other opportunities. This scared Fox. She was just starting to earn good money and did not want to be the sole earner of their home. Thus, she filed for a divorce.
In Vivica’s own words,
“He didn’t go out and then pursue things with the same drive that I had for my career. You know, a woman doesn’t like paying all the bills all the time. I can only ask for help so many times before I had to come to the conclusion that I didn’t want to be the breadwinner in this family. My mother didn’t raise me to take care of a man. And that was the deciding factor.”
58-year-old Fox sure seems to be an old-school woman. But we do support her decision of walking away from her first wedding. She rushed into it – it couldn’t have felt right. We hope she is more careful in the days to come.
Rapper, 50 Cent Is Her Ex; Fox Linked With Him After Her Separation From “Sixx-Nine”
Following her divorce from “Sixx-Nine”, the actress started dating the rapper, 50 Cent. The dating rumors began in 2003 and their time together lasted for only 4 months.
During their short link together, Fox and 50 Cent were head over heels for each other. But as sad as it is, he wasn’t meant for her. So, they went on different paths after 4 months of being in a relationship.
According to the actress, she is still very attracted to the rapper. However, she does not feel like they should ignite the fire of love again. Despite everything that happened, 50 Cent is still a very dear friend to Fox. She has revealed that he and she made peace while she was working on her book, Every Day I’m Hustling.
Vivica Almost Got Married Again!
When the Independence Day star, Vivica came across club promoter, Omar “Slimm” White, she thought that she had met the love of her life again. We do not quite know when the ex-pair began dating, but we do know that they were engaged and just about to tie the knot. If Fox went ahead with it, it would’ve been her 2nd marriage.
However, the universe had different plans. After almost 10 months of saying “Yes!”, their engagement was broken in November 2011. Our sources believe that White had some issues during the course of his relationship with the Days of our Lives actress. According to the man,
She’s a good woman. It’s just one of those situations where in life, people outgrow each other. I’m highly intelligent, very wise, and one thing I hate is negativity and drama. I hate arguing, and I value communication no matter what the problem may be. So as in any relationship, tension can build up and I finally had to walk away.”
It seems, wherever Vivica Fox goes, the drama follows! This wasn’t admired by Oman White, and the duo called it quits.
