    Default Despite of

    Dear teachers...

    Could you proofread the following constructions?

    Despite of what you may think of me. I still like you very much.
    I like them despite of their arrogance.
    Despite of what has happened, they still are on our side.

    Many thanks

    Despite = in spite of

    Despite of is a grammatical error.
