Facts You Should Know About Rahmat Morton
1. His marriage came to an end following a domestic abuse scandal
After 8 years of marriage, the union between Rahmat and Keke drew so much attention for all the wrong reasons. At the top of the list was a domestic violence case. The singer accused her former husband of physically abusing her.
At a point, she was forced to stab him in what she would later describe as an attempt to defend herself and her kids. It was not too long after this that she filed for a divorce and then she ended the marriage in 2009.
2. His love life is unclear
Since his marriage to Keke came to an end, there has been no further information as regards the love life of Morton. Because of this, it is assumed by many that he has not tied the knot again and might be single at the moment.
The case is very different for his ex-wife who has since gotten married twice more. In 2010, just a year after her first marriage, Keke Wyatt got married to Michael Ford. The marriage seemed as though it was destined to last a long time but it came to an end in 2017 after he left her for another singer, Paris Bennett. The next year, she got married for the third time to her current husband, Zackariah Darring.
3. His former wife is a mother of 9 children
From all her marriages, Keke has nine kids thus far. While her first marriage produced four kids, three of whom are still alive, her next marriage to Michael Jamar Ford who was an ordained minister produced three more kids; Makayla, Wyatt, and Ke’Yoshi Bella. More so, he had a child from a previous relationship.
Moving on, she divorced her second husband while eight months pregnant with their fourth child, Kendall Miguel. She married Zackariah Darring on the 19th of October 2019. The pair is blessed with a child, Ke’Riah David Darring who was born in January 2020.
4. His son was diagnosed with cancer
Morton’s son with Wyatt, Rahjah Ke Morton was diagnosed with cancer that almost claimed his life. According to his mother, she first noticed that he couldn’t walk during a trip to the amusement park. He was rushed to the hospital where he was diagnosed to be suffering from leukemia.
That started a battle to cure him including chemotherapy. Fortunately, this worked and he was declared free of the disease by the medics.
5. Rahmat Morton is successful in his own right
Although his name is mostly tied to his failed marriage to Keke, Rahmat Morton has also achieved a lot for himself. He is said to be very good and creative at what he does for a living, organising and managing tours, road, and travel events for his clients and artists.
It is thanks to this that he came to manage several artists and various sources now claim her has a net worth that is over $1 million, but this cannot be verified.
