IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Chante' Moore & Kenny Lattimore DIVORCED!

Chante' Moore aint got a man at home anymore!  The songstress and her R&B hubby Kenny Lattimore just announced their divorce after 9 years of marriage today.

 

Details inside...

No need for a publicist when you can take to your own Facebook page to give a statement about the end of your marriage.  Chante' Moore wrote this message today that Essence.com got a hold of:

"My ex-husband Kenny Lattimore and I are divorced," Chante wrote. "We both will continue to be devoted parents to our son. I would much rather my fans hear this sensitive information directly from me, than some random inaccurate media source,"

The couple wed New Year's Day 2002.  And seem to be a match made in R&B heaven as they even released a couple odf duet albums.  This is the second divorce for Chante' as she was formerly married to actor Kadeem Hardison.

Both Kenny and Chante have

Both Kenny and Chante have had frustrating, but, promising careers. Clive Davis signed Kenny moments before he was first ousted at Arista Records back in the late 90s. L.A. Reid did keep him on Arista, but, clearly didn't have the same vision for his career that Clive may have had. Chante was often compared to a young Diana Ross. When Louil Silas signed her, MCA was fairly hot in black music, but, then that changed. Though their careers didn't tank by uniting them as a duo, it was not easy to see their individual brilliance. Still, they made 2 respectable albums on Arista while sidelining their solo careers. It is possible this would eventually impact their marriage. Call me a romantic, but, they made a cute couple physically. But I didn't live with either of them. I can help but feel that their solo careers eventually took its toll on their union. It is completely disrespectful to attack Kenny's sexuality. I think those who stated that Kenny came across as a more sensitive kind of guy was closer to the truth. I wished them well, but, having been in a 10 yr relationship that I worked hard to make look good on the surface, I have some sense how things can be a lot more complicated than that. I think Kenny was hitting his stride when he released "Soul of a Man" though it underperformed commercially, it wasn't hard to see why Clive saw his potential. Same for "A Love Supreme" for Chante. "Old School Lovin" was even better than "Chante's Got A Man". Ironically, it was both their sophomore releases. I can only hope that their new current releases will begin to rebuild their once thriving solo careers. I love both of them as artist and wish them well. Whatever personal issues that need to be sorted in their personal lives, I hope will soon be ironed out. They both have voices that are gifts from the heavens. Speculating on their near 10 year marriage is pointless because we don't have the ability to do anything about it. But we can buy their music, see them on tour and wish them a great fresh new start. That is all we can do. No more, no less. Society dictates that relationships are supposed to last "forever". Maybe some relationships last as long as they were intended to. We learn and we grow and sometimes we move on ..........on different paths. Embrace the good and trust that you know when its time to travel on a different journey.

Why do people take up for

Why do people take up for artist just because? The truth is the truth and that is all that matters to the actual folks going through this sad...tired ass...neverending drama! Kenny is more feminine than Chante and Chante is too damn controlling and annoying! I don't understand how this union even formed...it is safe to say that either it was in fact an arranged marriage or both parties tried to change and wash the other's dirty laundry! You cannot change what your soul knows, wants and needs! Everyone in the industry and with a lick of common sense knew that Kenny Latimore is GAY...Everyone in the industry and with a shred of common sense could tell that Chante clearly and unfortunately has issues!!!! I hope they both start being true to self and stop tyring to have the image they think people want them to have...we love the way both of you sing...thats all you owe us is a great body of work and a great performance! Stop wasting your life trying to be what you are not...its way time to be free!

I don't know why some people

I don't know why some people refuse to accept the fact that people are gay. Both Kenny and Kadeem may be bisexual if not gay. Don't forget..people grew up with these celebrities..before they became celebrities. I've been told by several men, who don't know one another, that they know Kenny as gay. He was even seen at a pajama party for "boys"...and wikipedia even comes out and says Kadeem "remains close friend of actor Darryl Bell" who was on the show with him. If they're gay--they're gay!!! They are the ones who need to stop marrying these women pretending to be something they're not.

To here this was a suprise to

To here this was a suprise to me. But Kenny isn't gay!! He's never been gay. Chante (is my girl) needs to stop running from her problems because divorce is not the answer to every situation. I do believe this was her third marriage the first one was to a white guy I believe. However even if her second she isn't showing a good pattern. A mother plays a big part in assisting their children with marital problems and because both their mothers are deceased and if they don't have spiritual mothers it can cause a strain. 9 years isn't bad in this 20th century.

She settled even though Kenny

She settled even though Kenny was much better for her. Kadeem didn't believe in marriage from the beginning, but married her anyway to make her happy then backed out. She only wanted him and Kenny was a rebound. She said when she told Kadeem she got married on vacation, he joked that he did too and she was hurt until he told her he was joking. Correction: this is her 3rd divorce, she was married before Kadeem. I think her and Kenny bonded over her rebound and what they had in common (parents both ministers and both of their mothers died from breast cancer). If you haven't heard Kenny's single "Starship" originally recorded by Michael Henderson, it's ridiculously good & reminds me of the old Kenny. I hope another major label picks him up. When they got married both their careers suffered and they both had lost their contracts, then had a few hits. I don't know what happened but Chante doesn't seem stable to me.

Wow, such stupid comments.

Wow, such stupid comments. First, Chante is an Air Head. Air heads are not very committed women. Kenny needs a nappy headed sister capable of love instead of an air head. All air heads will be in the poor house in the future with 2 or 3 baby daddys. Another thing; idiots call everyone gay. It's stupid to call someone intelligent or upright gay. Idiots with low IQs create rumors (bares false wittiness) and calls everyone else gay.

Why tell your personal issues

Why tell your personal issues to the world - when it probably aint all true, if chante is looking for a pitty party, look to her friends for that. Besides something doesn't seem right here (after 3 marriages) she needs to stop look at her own azz and make sure she knows what it takes to be married. An older woman needs to sit chante down and school her before she f-up another life...
Anonymous's picture

Actually the only thing that

Actually the only thing that Chante needs to do is to pay better attention to who it is she falls in love with and make sure they are who THEY say they are before getting surprised later. It is amazing how people who only know of people from the media make commentary that is just wrong and based on rumor. Perhaps it was not Chante at all that was the problem maybe she did not want to live a lie anymore, maybe she tried got tired of trying to get someone to love her who just wanted the facade of marriage??? Maybe there were other things involved...There is lots that could be in this story but only Chante, Kenny and God (along with a few others) know the real truth and trust what is written below ain't it! Maybe he screwed up her life and she needed to make sure she was safe? Just a few maybe's!!!!

Well we all know everything

Well we all know everything looks good on the outside, Yes! I agree with you that someone need to sit Chante "my girl" down and give her a lesson in "Holy Matrimony” I’m crying for the both of them. And I do not believe that is has to be an older women, It could be someone who knows how to be a (husband/wife) as Christ ordained marriage to be. They both are God Fearing people- Kenny as for you I’m crying  “I expected better, better, better, better and did I say “Better” I want to beat the both of you- because you both have to answer- . P.S Kenny & Chante- where were Christ in all of this? God don’t give you not junk!!!

lol, its funny how temporary

lol, its funny how temporary marriage seems nowadays isn't it? I saw an interview with this couple on a christian station and they seemed to be saying all the right things, but you never know I guess. I wish them the best, but if you truly know God, theres nothing he cant fix. Chante has been married a few times now, I hope both her & kenny hold onto the Lord and let the world go.

Wishing the best to both of

Wishing the best to both of them. I loved their first duets album. My question: why does anyone get married anymore when marraiges just don't last? Everyone throws in the towel and moves on. What's the point?
But_I'm_Clevah's picture

The issue is not whether or

The issue is not whether or not marriages last, it is why they do not survive the challenges life brings. People, especially today, marry for the wrong reasons. Money, security, public image, etc. Family values have lost its place in modern society, and this is the result; a "microwaved" generation. If there is no easy fix, toss it out and replace it for something that requires less energy and self-involvement. On a brighter note, there are still marriages today that do last.

WOW! Who knew?! I

WOW! Who knew?! I appreciate and respect Chante's honesty and openness. But, I thought Chante' and Kadeem were never married that they just lived together for all of those years and had a child together, so if that is the case then this would have been marriage #2, not unless they resided in a state that recognized common law marriage.

I'm only sad because I currently still play their duet love songs as my bedtime music so from that I imagined them as the sweetest cutest thing because they make me feel good, but really I know nothing about them (nothing) so who am I to wish they stay together.

I'm not surprised b/c she was in concert in Maryland about 2 1/2 yrs. ago and she was taking shots at him regarding bringing home INCOME. Kenny's brand has faded and his confidence and sense of self probably faded as well. I wish them both the very Best!

you should just shut your

you should just shut your face. You have no idea what was going on in their relationship. It's better to be happy on your own then be in an unhealthy relationship. This is not back in the day where there was no choice for women but to stay. Us as women have choices now and I love it. It is unfortunate but it is what it is. No woman wants to give up on there marriage...it has many factors that contribute to leaving the man. So with that said...we dont know what happened but she made the best choice for her and her children. Kudos to her. Much love.
