It is no more news that Nollywood diva and producer, Ini Edo’s marriage to her US-based husband, Philip Ehiagwina, has crashed. The marriage was said to have crashed a few weeks ago, but the couple decided to keep the news away from the public.While the marriage lasted, there were reports that Ini Edo was not enjoying her marriage mainly because her husband did not reside in Nigeria.
The stress of going over to the US to check on her ex-husband was said to have contributed largely to the eventual break up the marriage suffered.
Ini Edo, in an interview sometime ago, managed to keep her marital problems away from the media and preying eyes, but apparently she could not continue to deny that things had gone bad with her marriage when news filtered into town that she had concluded plans to break up with his husband after marrying for five years.
Since the news of the crashed marriage surfaced on major social media platforms during the week, there have been accusations and counter accusations from Ini Edo and her husband, with one accussing another of infidelity and distrust.
The confirmation of the break up was rife during the week when Ini Edo decided to remove her husband’s name from her social media accounts and also removed wife from her bio on Instagram.
It will be recalled that weeks ago, Nollywood actor, Desmond Eliot was said to have posted on his Facebook fan page ‘Pray for Ini Edo’. Some people alleged that the post may have angered the actress’s husband.
Reacting to the news of the break up on social media, the actress denied that her marriage ended because of infidelity on her part. “I asked for a divorce from my ex-husband because of irreconcilable differences. I never cheated on my husband. There is a conscious and malicious attempt at tarnishing my image. This whole saga is familiar, let’s not forget the past. Thanks and God bless”.
