Christopher Harvest, known as Sixx-Nine, is an American singer and vocalist. However, he is most famous as the ex-husband of actress and TV host Vivica A. Fox. Harvest’s ex-wife, Fox, is renowned for her breakthrough roles in two box-office-hit films, Roland Emmerich’s “Independence Day” and F. Gary Gray’s “Set It Off.”
Afterward, she starred in several movies, including “Kill Bill,” where she played Vernita Green. Harvest and Fox had a marriage that ended before it even started. What started as a beautiful relationship for the then-couple turned out to be a one-sided effort, making it too demanding — consequently, the two parted ways.
Since the separation, Harvest opted for a more secluded life away from the limelight. However, many are eager to learn all about Vivica A. Fox’s ex-husband. Here’s what we know.

What Does Christopher Harvest Do for a Living?
Like his marriage to the gorgeous actress, Christopher Harvest had a short music career. In the initial days of his marriage, Harvest was a talented singer and musician, working with a music group. However, things didn’t go as planned for the group.
After much hard work, his band finally got their big break after they signed to work with Tupac’s label, Deathrow Records. Unfortunately, before they even began working, the contract was cut off following Tupac’s untimely death.
As a result, his music never made it to the mainstream. Vivica A. Fox’s ex-husband gave up his career in music and became a stay-at-home husband, which later brought friction between the couple.
When Did Christopher Harvest Meet Vivica A. Fox?
Christopher Harvest and Fox met each other for the first time at Bar One, a nightclub in Beverly Hills, on December 16, 1996. The encounter was a coincidental one between a fan and the gorgeous actress from “Soul Food.” According to the actress, she had just wrapped “Soul Food” and was back in Los Angeles to celebrate her homecoming with her girls.
As she was catching up with her friends, Harvest made a move on her. However, Fox shut him out by addressing him as a “brother.” Unfazed by her dismissal, Harvest handed 20 roses to the stunning actress on the dance floor of the nightclub. The “Soul Food” star revealed his gesture worked, and that’s how their story began, from “brother” to life partner.
After four months of dating, the lovebirds moved in together. Afterward, Harvest proposed to Fox on December 19, 1997, the same day they met for the first time a year back. Talking about their engagement, it was a dream come true for Fox. According to the talented actress, Harvest decorated their home with many roses and candles. Furthermore, he went on one knee and asked her to marry him with a platinum ring, Fox’s favorite.

Harvest and Fox invited 260 guests to their over-the-top Cinderella-esque wedding reception. Among their guests were many famous people, including Shaq, Lela Rochon, Magic Johnson, and many more. Unfortunately, the union turned sour a few years later, and they divorced in 2002.

Hence, this led to the end of his marriage with the “Set It Off” star.
In a 2021 YouTube interview, Fox revealed that since Harvest did not pursue any other careers later on, she had to step in and become the “breadwinner” of their home. However, this did not sit right with the actress, who admitted that paying all the bills took a toll on their marriage.
In addition, Fox revealed that she married because of “peer pressure.” The stunning actress and TV host disclosed that since most of her friends were getting married, she wanted to do what “everyone else was doing.” Sadly, her fairytale did not work out for the best.
Where Is Vivica A. Fox’s Ex-Husband Now?
Since his separation from Fox, Christopher Harvest has lived a laid-back lifestyle, off the radar. Aside from his appearance at the 2013 Soul Train Awards, the former celebrity spouse has not graced any other event.
