Ka Ho Cho Marriage
John Elroy Sanford, famous as Redd Foxx, is Ka Ho Cho’s husband. They met each other for the first time at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas after Redd Foxx’s third divorce from his ex-wife, Yun Chi Chung.
After dating and courting for quite some time, Ka Ho Cho and Redd Foxx tied the wedding knot in July 1991 at Little Church of the West in Las Vegas, the United States of America. They had their wedding reception at one of the most luxurious hotels in Las Vegas, the Hacienda Hotel.
Ka Ho Cho’s Husband
John Elroy Sanford is a stand-up comedian born in St. Louis on December 9, 1922. He is well-known for his roles in Cotton Comes to Harlem, Harlem Nights, All The Fine Young Cannibals, and Sanford and Son. He is also known as Redd Foxx, a name he adopted because of his reddish complexion and his admiration for the Baseball player Jimmie Foxx.
Before John married Ka Ho Cho, he had been in three marriages. His first was to Evelyn Killebrew in 1948, they had no children, and the marriage ended in divorce in 1951.
In 1956 he married Betty Jean Harris, a showgirl and dancer linked to LaWanda Page. He adopted Betty’s daughter from her previous marriage, nine-year-old Debraca Denis, born in 1957, now 66 years old. Betty and John’s marriage lasted for 19 years and eventually collapsed in 1975 due to John’s infidelity.
Foxx married his third wife, Joi Yun Chi Chung, on December 31, 1976, at the Thunderbird Hotel in Las Vegas. They separated following a divorce filed by both of them.
John married Ka Ho Cho in July 1991, despite the 37 years gap in age. Sadly, their marriage did not give birth to any child and was short-lived. During the short time of their union, Betty accused Ka Ho Cho of squandering John’s money. Whether the accusation was true or not, we can’t verify, but we can verify that John spent $373,000 out of his $500,000 revenue from “Harlem Nights” on wine, women, song, and gambling.
He left behind a huge tax debt of 3.5 million before his death. The IRS seized his house in Las Vegas and seven of his cars for failing to pay income taxes from 1983, when he filed for bankruptcy, to 1986. He received his landed properties back, but his luxurious items and cars were used to clear off his tax debt.
John died on October 11, 1991, while on the set of The Royal Family, after he suffered a massive heart attack. After his death and without a Will, his only heir, Debraca, oversaw his Foxx estate, which became a point of contention between Debraca and Ka Ha Cho.
Ka Ho Cho’s Husband (Redd Foxx’s) Death
Sadly, John Elroy Sanford, now known as Redd Foxx, passed away on October 11, 1991, barely three months after his marriage to his fourth and last wife, Ka Ho Cho.
According to reports, the film actor and comedian Redd Foxx died of a heart attack when he took a short break from his practice while filming his (the last movie, more or less) titled “The Royal Family arrangement.”
Ka Ho Cho’s Net worth
Ka Ho Cho does not have an estimated net worth. Her husband lived a lavish lifestyle that cost him a fortune and kept him in debt.
After her husband’s passing, Ka Ho Cho became involved in a legal dispute with Foxx’s child over his estate. Ka Ho Foxx accused Debraca of stealing revenue instead of paying down the tax debt owed. Debraca failed to comply with a court order to account for what she had done with royalties and other monies the estate generated under her watch.
The legal battle lasted several years, with Cho ultimately being awarded a portion of Foxx’s estate. Since then, Ka Ho Cho has largely stayed out of the public eye, and there is limited information about her current activities or whereabouts.
