Is Chris Kattan Gay Or Does He Have A Wife?
To the best of our knowledge, it is highly unlikely that Chris Kattan is gay. The American actor and comedian were once married to a model, Sunshine Deia Tutt. Chris married the model in 2008 in Oakhurst, California, after the couple had been together for several years.
Katan’s proposal to Tutt was very romantic, as he is said to have asked her to marry him on Christmas Eve 2006 at her grandmother’s house in Gainesville, Texas. However, the romance between the newlyweds was short-lived, as they filed for divorce barely two months after the beginning of their marriage. Although they did not disclose to the public why they wanted to annul their marriage, recent information has revealed that Katan’s wife was cheating on him. Meanwhile, other sources claim that Chris Kattan was cheating on her as well and that it was his idea to end the marriage.
Before his marriage, Kattan had a number of relationships, including a relationship with model and actress Jennifer Gimenez sometime in 1999 and two years later, in 2001, a relationship with Jennifer Coolidge. Chris Kattan also had a relationship with comedian/actress Maya Rudolph.
How Did He Break His Neck?
Chris Kattan recently revealed the reason for his stiff appearance when he revealed that he had suffered a severe neck injury that resulted in four operations. According to what he revealed, he has been recovering from the injury for 20 years. Kattan’s physical appearance, which showed that he was a little stiff at the premiere of Dancing With The Stars (DWTS), prompted him to finally let people know what he was struggling with. However, the comedian did not reveal all the details of his injury, but referred to what led to it as a “stunt thing”.
As a contestant on the DWTS show, Katty recalls when he was told by a judge to stop being stiff, but it was a Herculean task for him as his posture was stiff by default due to his injury.
However, his dancing partner Carson praised his tireless efforts, and although she too was worried about him, Katty didn’t want his injury to prevent him from attending the show. For him, attending the show was a way to renew his zeal.
