Yet another power couple within the Jamaican entertainment industry has broken up as it has been confirmed that universally-regarded Reggae singers, Ce’Cile and Christopher Martin are no longer together.
The duo have reportedly been dating since the start of the current decade, with Martin, 27, being 13 years younger than Ce’Cile, 40. The couple share a 20-month-old daughter.
Though Ce’Cile never publicly acknowledged her relationship with Martin, the artist, whose real name is Cecile Charlton, told the Jamaica STAR in a report published Friday that the two have been broken up for quite a while.
“I never publicly said who I was dating, but whoever I was dating is no longer in the picture,” she said to the newspaper. “I have been single for a few months now. I can confirm that. There’s no drama or anything attached to it. There’s a time and place for everything, and I guess this time has expired.”
Despite the split, Ce’Cile said the break-up will not affect their daughter.
“I lost a boyfriend, my daughter has not lost a dad. It should never be entangled,” she said. “He’s a good dad.”
Ce’Cile also opened up about her relationship with her daughter, saying that it is hard to leave her daughter behind when touring but plans to take her with her to a foreign country every year while on tour.
She is now working on a new album, for which she has already recorded 13 tracks for, and is promoting her new record label, YGMG.
The break-up of Ce’Cile and Chris Martin marks the third such breakup of note within the local entertainment industry in the last two months. In February, news broke that former beauty queen and current media personality, Yendi Phillipps and popular Reggae singer, Daniel ‘Chino’ McGregor split after years of dating and sharing a child together. Last month, singjay, Ishawna confirmed her breakup from popular producer, Foota Hype, with whom she had been with for nearly a decade and was engaged to for 11 months.
