Vivica A. Fox wowed the world with her performance in the classic film "Soul Food." The actress who became a world-class act was married only once to the singer Christopher Harvest, a proud dad to two kids; meet him and his family.


Vivica Fox, now 56, has always had the body, looks, and brain that made her unique. She has starred in numerous films, authored a book, produced/directed, and rubbed shoulders with the high and mighty in the entertainment industry.

Career-wise, the actress has scored a tremendous amount of success and established herself as a powerhouse in both the black entertainment world and Hollywood.

Although she has won a few theatre awards and nominations, Fox is yet to bag home an Oscar award or Emmy. Still, the producer is proud of her works and hopes to win an Oscar someday.

Some of her film credits include her career-defining role in "Independent Day," "Set It Off," "Soul Food," "Two Can Play That Game," "Kill Bill: Vol 1," and "City of Angels."

The answer is yes! But just one time. She was married to a singer named Christoper Harvest. Harvest and the onscreen celebrity were married for about three years and never had a child.

During an interview, Fox was refreshingly honest about her time with the singer. She explained that having a wedding ceremony was to fulfill her Cinderella dreams. She looked around and realized her friends and peers were exchanging vows, and she wanted the same thing.


Thankfully, it happened exactly how she intended. Fox and Harvest had a luxury wedding with paparazzi struggling to capture the event, tabloids running stories, but more importantly, her family showed up for the big day.

Sadly, three years down the line, the actress backed out of the marriage, adding that she did not take time to study the man she vowed to spend forever with. One of Fox's complaints was that Harvest did not have the drive and passion for advancing his career.

Not too long ago, the onscreen goddess claimed to be enjoying her time with a mystery/quarantine lover.


A combination of his lackadaisical attitude to work and his inability to provide for the family made the marriage a burden, and the "Soul Food" alum decided to end it in 2002. Fox said:

"My mother didn't raise me to take care of a man. And that was the deciding factor."



Not much is known about Christopher Harvest's musical career except that he is a performer under the name "Sixx-Nine," but like his ex-wife, the man has aged graciously, is in a great place, and is enjoying every moment of his life.

He is a father to a College graduate son and a daughter in high school, whom he loves so much. The singer also often serenades his kids with praises online while showcasing some fatherly bond with his mini-mes.

Harvest is never too busy hanging out in the park, having a fun food date, or even spending special holidays with his offspring, who always appear excited to be in their dad's company.


In June, he flaunted a photo of his son, who recently graduated. The post featured the young man in his graduation apparel, and the caption read:

"My son about to take that step into the real world. College graduate honor society Bethune Cookman. Proud parent I Am he. Salute."

The doting dad has also reaped the fruits for being an excellent parent. During Father's Day, his son sent a heart-melting card referring to him as a "great dad" and his hero.



Despite retaining her sexiness, youthfulness, and relevance in the industry after many years, the ageless beauty confessed on VLAD TV that she does not have a perfect life and regrets some of her actions.

Fox said she regretted not having kids due to her work schedule and not meeting the right man. However, she has six godchildren with whom she creates excellent memories by spending time with them, leaving her with an accomplished feeling.


These godchildren make her happy and oblivious of her reality, with their constant display of genuine love and affection, not minding her outward looks but her enchanting personality.

During another candid moment with media mogul Oprah Winfrey, the producer added some lessons she learned as a celebrity. Being her own critic robbed her of exalting talent and success. She said:

"I used to be just so hard on myself. I would look at my work and wouldn't enjoy it; I would pick it apart...because I was on that treadmill of success."



Shortly after her divorce, the actress fell in love with rapper 50 Cent. The lovers made their first appearance at MTV VMAs in 2003. However, this relationship did not last for more than one year.

Speaking about her time with the rapper, Fox admitted that she cared for him, and he would forever be the love of her life, but he was not her soulmate.


The "Soul Food" star paused her romantic life for some years, and in 2011, the gossip mills announced that she was engaged to a club promoter called Omar "Slim" White.

Fox confirmed the news, adding that she was overjoyed. White had proposed at Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, and hoped to have kids with his fiancee.

Fans thought it would be a second wedding for their favorite celebrity but were left shocked when the couple broke off their engagement ten months later.


A called-off engagement and failed marriage didn't cause the actress to back down from finding Mr. Right, but she later got involved with a younger actor, Robert Ri'Chard.

Rumor also had it that Fox dated NBA star Dennis Rodman. Not too long ago, the onscreen goddess claimed to be enjoying her time with a mystery/quarantine lover.

She also admitted that their honeymoon phase was over, hinting that it was not too significant. These days, the only thing Fox takes seriously is having the best time of her life!
