Jackie Appiah’s Relationship

Jackie Appiah’s divorce

Actress Jackie Appiah married businessman Peter Agyemang in 2005 but ended their marriage three years later. Not much is known about why their marriage collapsed but reports indicate that Jackie Appiah’s ex-husband was abusive.

Jackie Appiah and Asamoah Gyan

Jackie Appiah and football star Asamoah Gyan sparked dating rumours after they were spotted together. However, it appears that the image was that of a commercial. Nonetheless, it didn’t stop people from drawing conclusions that the two were an item.  

Jackie Appiah and Destiny Etiko

An Instagram gossip blogger Gist Lovers blog alleged that actress Jackie Appiah was having an affair with a married politician and businessman David Sabo in exchange for money. 

The blogger described the politician as a lavish spender. This is not the first time Jackie has been accused of such and some have urged her to leave the acting scene as her alleged actions are tainting the industry.

Jackie Appiah’s Controversies

Jackie Appiah and George Weah’s relationships

Word had it that Jackie Appiah was pregnant for Liberian President George Weah and that his wife Clar Weah warned Jackie Appiah to stay away from her husband. Jackie’s affair with the former football star reportedly began before he became president in 2018. The actress rubbished the claims and asked her followers to ignore the rumours.

Jackie Appiah and Shatta Wale

The actress was dragged through the mad by one of Ghana’s biggest artists Shatta Wale. Wale said that Jackie doesn’t deserve to be regarded as an artist as her movies don’t bring in more than $10,000. He further accused the screen goddess of sleeping with men to make money.

The beef between the two seems to have been sparked by Jackie Appiah’s statement in which she said that coronavirus ambassadors shouldn’t expect to be renumerated. This came after Shatta Wale put a price on his ambassadorial work and he hit back.
