Husband, Children

Jackie and her husband Peter Agyemang got married in 2005. The couple has a son, Damien. But they are currently divorced after three years of marriage. It wasn’t clear what led to their irreconcilable differences was, that broke the union, but it was obvious they disagree on a lot of things. While Peter Agyemang accused his wife of being a liar, the rumours buzz around the media described the man as a dangerous person.

Whatever the case may be, both seemed to have moved on with the separate lives without any hope of getting back together again. Their divorce was finalised in 2012, leaving Jackie with the custody of their young son.
