Christina Yamamoto is divorced twice

At first, Christina tied the knot with a mystery man. No information regarding her first spouse is given. They did not have any kids together. 

Later after some time, in 1979, she met her second spouse named, Dr. Karamo Chilombo. Professionally, he is a paediatrician. 

They were in a romantic relationship for a year and tied the knot officially in 1980. They had a micro-wedding with the involvement of only family members. 

They were together for two decades. Sadly, they separated in 2000. Together they are the parents of five kids. 

However, the reason behind their split is not known. The lady hasn’t remarried since then. 

On the other side, Dr. Karamo also hasn’t remarried but was in numerous relationships. He became a dad to the other three kids from other women too.

Did she lose her son?

Christina had indeed lost her son named, Miyagi Hasani Ayo Chilombo. He died on July 19, 2012. Miyagi battled cancer. 

Miyagi struggled with an inoperable tumour for two years in total before he took his final breath. 

It was a huge loss for the whole family as Jhene also went through depression for a while after Miyagi was gone. 

Miyagi was born on July 7, 1986, and he left the world at the age of 26. 

Why did Jhene Aiko stop using N-word in her song?

If you have noticed that the artists featured in her recent music are the only ones who use the word nigga in her songs. 

Well, the lady had chosen to remove the word from her process of songwriting. 

She had an opportunity to explain herself during her conversation with one of the users of social media. 

Jhene answered one of the fans' questions, saying that Whispers cat hair, Slauson asphalt, and sand from Venice beach. 

Jhene said she is less black than someone half black but is also less white than someone who is half white, and Asian is the last thing she has, so currently, it’s whatever they want her to be. 

She later explained in detail to her fans her ethnicity, as the answer she gave before might confuse them. 

She said having a Japanese grandfather and a Creole/Dominican grandmom on her mother’s side, and both her dad’s parents are black and white, so claiming her DNA is 25% Asian, 34% European, and 33% African. 

Further, she added that the given DNA sites are updated from time to time, so who knows actually what will happen? She is done explaining. 

She explains she is also a human and sees everyone as a family despite how everyone sees her. 

So, thinking about her ancestry and the discomfort faced when non-black individuals use the word, she took a decision to remove the word from her writing. 

Net worth

Since Christina’s financial information is not known, relying on her daughter, Jhene has an estimated net worth of $7 million as of 2022.
