Chris Frangipane marriage to Nicole Frangipane
Chris met his future wife Nicole in college. They fell in love very early on, despite them constantly struggling financially, which meant that they needed to constantly move houses.
On September 29, 1994, they were blessed with their firstborn child, daughter Ashley Nicolette Frangipane. She would later become a world-famous singer, taking up the stage name ‘Halsey’.
During this period, they were really struggling to make ends meet, and they both had to briefly drop out of college to prepare and take care of their baby.
In 1998, the couple was blessed with another child, a son by the name Sevian Frangipane. Another son, Dante Frangipage, would follow in 2005. In total, they have 3 children.
Chris Frangipane’s family
It may not seem like it, but the odds were stacked against the Frangipanes. It was unlikely that the family would produce a very famous and successful recording artist.
Because of Chris’ job, the family had to travel a lot and move a lot when the children were little. As a result, Halsey and her brother ended up attending multiple schools.
To make matters worse, Chris and his wife once kicked teenage Halsey out of their family home. According to some media reports, this was after continued use of illegal drugs. However Halsey herself has denied that explanation, saying the reason she was booted out was because she dropped out of college.
Halsey is now in good terms with her parents, and both her father and mother have on several occasions accompanied her to award shows and ceremonies. She even gives credit to her father for supporting her upbringing by pursuing stressful jobs, and being vital in her career.
Chris and his wife Nicole now live in Los Angeles.
