Who is Christopher Harvest?
Christopher Harvest is the ex-husband of Vivica A Fox. Christopher Harvest’s wife is best known for her breakthrough roles in two box office hits, Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day and F. Gary Gray’s Set It Off. Vivica is best known for her role as Vernita Green in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, Vol. 1.
Before meeting Vivica A Fox, who was Christopher Harvest?
Christopher Harvest’s life before marrying Vivica Fox is a frustrating mystery in and of itself.
So much so that not even the actress’ former husband’s birth details have been decoded.
One could argue that Harvest is just another long-lost celebrity who was once famous due to their relationship with a Hollywood star.
Some claim he was a collegiate athlete because of his incredible height.
To date, however, that has almost no credibility.
Vivica writes in her book, “Everyday I’m Hustling,” that it was 1996 and the 16th day of December.
The actress mentions that she had just finished filming Soul Food and was back in Los Angeles.
Vivica says she and her girls wanted to go out to celebrate her homecoming, so they went to Beverly Hills’ Bar One nightclub.
As they were hanging out and catching up on each other’s various storylines, this six-foot-nine guy approaches them.
Harvest was the man who asked, “Are you, Vivica Fox?” to which his future wife replied, “Yeah.”
The Sixx-Nine then added,
“Wow, you’ve gotten even more attractive.”
Vivica admits she was flattered but says, “You’re a warm brother.” But I have to leave.”
She then took a step away from him and onto the dance floor.
After a while, Chris went outside and purchased twenty roses, while Fox began a conversation with another man.
Harvest nevertheless intervened and began handing Vivica those twenty roses one by one.
The Soul Food star claims she hadn’t been wooed in a long time, and it worked.
With a platinum ring, Christopher Harvest proposed to Vivica A Fox
Vivica let Chris move into her house four months after their first meeting. She claims she was in love at the time.
Harvest proposed to her on December 19, 1997, one year to the day after they first met. Vivica admits in her book that she was expecting a ring.
When Harvest took her out to dinner the night of the proposal, Fox reveals how bad the meal was.
The Kingdom Come actress claims she was expecting him to take a knee at any moment during their meal.
Harvest, on the other hand, did not do so at the diner, and on the way home, his then-girlfriend was going through it all: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
When they returned home, Vivica noticed the house was decorated with roses and candles.
Chris finally got down on one knee and presented the ring.
Fox began to cry so hard that she couldn’t see the color of the ring. She assumed it was gold, which she had disliked since childhood.
Chris then said,
“It’s made of platinum.” “Your personal favorite.”
Shaq and Magic Johnson attended their wedding
They tied the knot in 1998. The ex-wife writes that Vivica and Chris married exactly one year later, keeping their commitment to December 19.
They chose the Park Plaza in Los Angeles as their venue.
It was an Art Deco palace that was used as a film set for old Hollywood-style movies and as a wedding venue for brides who wanted an extravagant Cinderella wedding.
The Indiana native arrived in a horse-drawn carriage decorated with flowers, white organza, and sparkling little lights. Vivica describes how a paparazzo falling out of a tree caused her big entrance to be delayed.
Madame King, the woman who had put the bride in her very first fashion show, was among the 260 people invited.
Magic Johnson and Shaq were also present, as were Holly Robinson Peete, Lela Rochon, and Tisha Campbell-Martin.
The bride was dressed in an ivory Escada gown, veil, and crown.
Escada was also worn by her six bridesmaids. Jeffrey Johnson, one of her Arlington High School boys who had gone on to become a pastor, married them.
The Reason for Christopher Harvest and Vivica A. Fox’s Divorce
Christopher Harvest’s ex-wife Vivica A. Fox revealed to hip-hop blogger DJ Vlad in May 2021 that the real reason for her 2002 divorce from her ex-husband was financial.
The Independence actress stated that she agreed to marry due to a rush and peer pressure from friends.
She also expressed her frustration with being the breadwinner and having to “pay all the bills all the time.”

Fox explained in the interview that she only decided to walk down the aisle for Harvest because “everyone else was doing it.”
“Everyone was having their Cinderella day, and to be honest, I just wanted one too…
“I was subjected to peer pressure.”
Vivica Assists Christopher Even the Following Divorce
Vivica claims she assisted her ex-husband during their divorce.
She was training for Kill Bill Vol 1 during their final year of marriage.
When Viv returned from filming in China, she wanted to wrap things up with Harvest as quickly and amicably as possible.
The actress informed him that she had set up a fully furnished apartment and had paid the entire year’s rent.
She also put $50,000 in his bank account. They were finished after that.
Fox declares that she did not hate the man, but simply did not want to be his wife any longer.
What happened to him? Did he remarry?
Christopher Harvest, Vivica A Fox’s former husband, has faded into obscurity over the years, at least in terms of media recognition.
Fox hasn’t mentioned her tall ex-partner in a long time.
Despite the fact that he was introduced as a new musician, there haven’t been many updates on that front either.
Similarly, in light of the preceding fact, not much of his marital life is recognizable.
Harvest may have a family of his own by the time he’s in his late 50s, given his age.
