Leilani was engaged to Cincinnati Bengalâ€™s Chris Henry who tragically died last December after he jumped off the back of his pick up truck while Leilani was driving it (Latest news reveled that Leilani wonâ€™t face any charges). Leilani was ecstatic to get married to Chris Henry in a few months ( actually in just three months), just one day before Chris Henryâ€™s death they were getting on some details of their wedding, but all of the sudden everything changed for Leilani.
Leilani Tonga overcame and stood by Chrisâ€™ side while he faced legal issues; that was the reason Chris Henry attributed all the credit on his improved life to his girlfriend Leilani Tonga.
