She changed the course of both her own and Kwame Kilpatrick's life. Where is Christine Beatty now?


Christine Beatty was Kwame Kilpatrickā€™s secret lover, until thousands of text messages exposed the truth.

Now she is coming clean in a big way.

Christine Beatty --the former Detroit mayoral chief of staff and mistress of Kwame Kilpatrick -- is the focus of an article in the November issue of the magazine Essence.

More: Beatty broke; debt to Detroit remains.

Actress Kerry Washington is on the cover but above her photo is the tagline to the article Detroit drama: how sexting ended my marriage.

In the interview Beatty reportedly reveals behind-the-scenes details of her lengthy affair with Kilpatrick and the events cost her career.

That November Essence hits newsstands next Thursday and ironically that is the same day Kwame Kilpatrick will be sentenced for his racketeering conviction.
