Children bring joy, and it is often said that only fortunate gets chance to have them. This statement can be wrongly taken and concluded for having more children. But is it such that the more children you have, the luckier you are? While this might be a serious question to be answered, “Empire” director Mario Van Peebles enjoys being the father of five children.
Marion's relationship timeline is a somewhat complicated one as he followed many ladies in his life, but unfortunately, he has been a victim of failed marriages.
But despite the end of his first marriage, Mario dared to give love a second chance. He found new romance and now shares a blissful family life with her along with their grown-up children.
Marital Bond With Wife, A Second Chance In Love
Mario Van Peebles, a well-known American actor, has been involved in a long series of relationships but he ultimately failed to have stable relations with them.
Mario found his first love in Lisa Vitello and then approached for a marital life with her. The actor hasn't revealed any information related to the relationship and the special day.
However, the couple had a good connection in between and spent many years together and even shared two children. They spent a joyful marital life until the day they found themselves on the verge of divorce. The exact reason behind the divorce is still under wraps.
The breakup didn't stop the actor from continuing his love life. He was then engaged in a relationship with Chitra Sukhu, who is an American citizen and is a teacher by profession.
