Christine Beatty Opens Up About her Affair with Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick


christine Beatty

The woman at the heart of the text-messaging scandal that destroyed former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick opens up about her life, her family and her notorious affair in the November issue of Essence Magazine.

Christine Beatty (pictured above) was Kilpatrick’s former chief of staff and mistress, and she speaks a deep admitted, bitter truth in the November issue of Essence stating: “Men are forgiven following political sex scandals, while women are negatively labeled”.

Beatty writes that while she was professionally shunned in the aftermath of the scandal, Kilpatrick left jail and landed a six-figure job as an account executive at Compuware, a job he later lost. 

Christine then speaks candidly about her affair with Kilpatrick, which I find is an outright disrespect to Kilpatrick’s wife Carlita, since they are still married.

“For years I would think fondly of our first kiss, the one we shared sitting on my mother’s couch after our first date. That kiss, passionate yet gentle, was the sweetest thing I had ever experienced.”

“We would find any spare time we could to be together, at the office or at my home when my children weren’t there. … He made me laugh, he made me angry, he propelled me to ecstasy and reduced me to tears, but most important, I felt he loved me unconditionally,”.

The November issue of Essence hit newsstands Thursday Oct. 10 the same day Kwame Kilpatrick is scheduled for sentencing.

The prosecutor is seeking a minimum of 28 years.

      she was one of many. His text messages with her were published online (when the story first came out) as well as his text messages hooking with other women. He also had a party at the Governor’s mansion with strippers there and one of the strippers that he gotten friendly with was killed on her way home from the party; originally investigators thought he or his wife had something to do with it but they were eventually cleared of all charges

  20. Previously, I had decided that she did her crime, did her time, is paying restitution, so leave her alone. Now, reading her story in her own words, it appears she learned absolutely nothing and is merely hunting for a payday. There is not one ounce of remorse for the people or the City she helped to destroy. It almost appears she is telling Carlita she should understand because she had Kwame first. For those who see her as strong, then you have never seen a strong woman. She is the furthest thing for an example to young women. If, you think the insults coming her way are unfair? You need to evaluate why she put herself back in the public eye.

  21. A few months ago she reported on her bankruptcy an unpaid parking ticket she got in Kwames neighborhood down in Texas. I think that was meant as a reminder to Carlita that Christine came first.

    As for her declaration of their marriage failing early on, I remember vividly reading in the text message transcripts Mr. Beatty responding to a text from Christine that read: “WHY CAN’T YOU LOOK AT ME LIKE YOU LOOK AT HIM?”

    This doesn’t read to me as a husband who doesn’t love his wife…

  35. Christine Beatty is so sorry for the pain she caused Carlita that she rehashed her and Kwame’s history in a national publication for even more people to read . I am sure this is helping Carlita to get over her pain that Kwame has caused with Beatty and a whole host of other willing women. If Christine really was a person who truly wanted to make amends in her life she would have left this history settled in the dust where it belongs.

But to turn around and stir this story up again shows you how much Christine is not sorry for what she did.

  37. Also, Carlita and Kwame’s sister Ayanna(sp) were never charged (but should have been) for their misuse of State grants they received supposedly to improve the lives of young girls in the city. Instead they misused those funds to improve their own lifestyle. Let us not forget the alleged beat down of Tamara Green. Carlita is no innocent in this ongoing “drama”. She was probably aware of his affairs, but like a lot of stupid, low self esteemed women, she merely looked the other way in order to maintain her lifestyle.

  38. Left unsaid? The affair would continue today if she hadn’t gotten caught. She had years to see the devastating effects it would have on both their families, yet she didn’t run to her pastor until she knew they were about to get caught. She learned lessons, sure, but none that will stop her from thinking it’s right to pursue all over again. That’s why no one’s hiring her.

This witch will have to live every day knowing that she gave up her job, her marriage and embarrassed herself and her children because of her infidelities. She will have to remember how her lover made her look like a fool in court and made a mockery of their long affair. She will have to remember what it was to be with him and know that he will seek the company of men in prison instead of her. Her kids will have to live with the stigma of this scandal forever.
