American actor Chiwetel Ejiofor turned heads with his budding relationship with Balmain model Frances Aaternir - many even expected they would get married. However, things didn't go as anticipated as the lovebirds parted ways privately.
Here is a breakdown of Ejiofor's relationship details with Aatrenir and also other women he has dated.
Chiwetel Ejiofor and Frances Aaternir
Ejiofor's relationship with the Ghanian-Australian model, Frances Aaternir, first became public in September 2015 when the duo appeared in the premiere of The Martian.
They kept their relationship fairly private, sharing nothing of their relationship glimpses in their social media accounts. Nevertheless, Ejiofor and his girlfriend kept their followers amused with public appearances here and there.
They attended the premiere of Secret In Their Eyes in November 2015. Then, in April 2016, the pair celebrated a date night at the basketball game of Toronto Raptors vs. New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Continuing their relationship, they strolled on the streets of Wimbledon hand-in-hand in July 2016. With PDAs that exhibited their relationship bliss, nothing seemed to go wrong in the duo's love life.
The number of their public appearances, however, started decreasing after 2019. And the duo parted ways privately circa late 2019.
After the split, Ejiofor hasn't been vocal about his relationship status, while Aaternir has been dating Brook Klausing. The mode and her new beau started dating in early February 2020.
His Ex-Girlfriends: Naomie Harris and Sari Mercer
The Oscar-nominated actor's ex-girlfriends, excluding Frances Aaternir, include English actress Naomie Harris and Canadian actress Sari Mercer.
He was in a six-year relationship with Naomie Harris, from 2000 to 2007.
A few years later, in 2013, the Doctor Strange actor started dating Sari Mercer. Their relationship lasted for around two years before it came to "a natural end."
Ejiofor has maintained a healthy rapport with one of his ex-girlfriends, Naomie Harris. The duo has reunited at award shows and events multiple times over the years. They will also star on the Showtimes' new upcoming series Man Who Fell to Earth.
Chiwetel Ejiofor's Bio
Ejiofor was born to middle-class Nigerian parents on July 10, 1977, in London's Forest Gate. His father, Arinze, was a doctor, whereas his mother, Obiajulu, was a pharmacist.
He lost his father at the age of 11. He and his father were driving to Lagos after a wedding when their car crashed with a lorry. The accident caused his father's death and scarred the actor's forehead for a lifetime.
Other than his mother, Ejiofor has a younger sister: Asher Zain. Zain is a New York city-based CNN anchor.
