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.

They even attended the red carpet events such as BAFTA Awards and the EE British Academy Film Awards at Royal Albert Hall in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
