More Facts Emerge On Ini Edo’s Divorce

Published

on

More facts are beginning to emerge concerning the breakdown of Nollywood actress, Ini Edo’s marriage.

It can be recalled that few weeks after popu­lar actor, Desmond Elliot took to twitter and called on Nige­rians to pray for Nollywood diva, Ini Edo to get pregnant, the bubble has finally burst as the actress has filed for divorce from her US-based husband, Phillip Ehiagwina.

Ini took to her twitter handle on Thursday to explain why she filed for divorce, declaring that contrary to rumours flying around, she never cheated on her husband. Rather she iden­tified “irreconcilable differ­ences” for the break-up, add­ing that there was a conscious effort to tarnish her image.

FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE?: Ini Edo and hubby

Though, the Akwa Ibom-born actress has been married for a couple of years, she is yet to have a child for her husband and this has culminated into pressure not just from her hus­band but also his parents and family members.

However, according to in­siders, the reason for the di­vorce suit was that Ini Edo could no longer bear the pres­sure being piled on her to get pregnant by all means. “The problem has been going on for a long while now,” a source close to the actress disclosed, adding: “You know, as Afri­cans, the need for children in a marriage is very important. It is what makes a woman the bona-fide wife to her husband and since Ini just wasn’t get­ting pregnant years after her marriage, her husband’s family lost patience. Maybe, Phillip wouldn’t have minded because of his deep love for Ini, but his family won’t settle for a child­less marriage.”

Reports had earlier stated that the break-up was due to allegations of cheating and distrust between Ini and Phil­lip. The climax was when her husband’s family returned the bride price paid for the actress.

As the news of her divorce went viral barely a month be­fore their 6th wedding anniver­sary, Nigerians and most espe­cially movie buffs had received the news with a pinch of salt. But then Ini Edo’s recent twit­ter post confirmed the worst fears of her fans who have been praying fervently for her to get pregnant.

The couple tied the knot in a society wedding that at­tracted the crème-de-la crème in November 2008 in Houston, Texas. Meanwhile, to show that she really means business, Ini’s bio-data on Instagram now bears ‘actress’ instead of ‘wife’ and she is also reported to have reverted to her maiden name, with reports that she had dumped her expensive wed­ding ring.

    What does it matter if they do not have a baby? Did they not marry for love? If it was all about kids then he could have don the tuface’s way and problem solved. When would the brain of this sort of african men and their families evolve?

    Im not an ini fan but girl you are too good for that insult of a man. What if you had a child and the family turns around to say it is not legitimate? or worse, that would lead to a divorce still and a child to face the situations that arises from a broken home.

    I think people in nigeria need to be enlightened by their doctors / nurses .women who find it difficult to conceive in most cases has its root cause that is usually no fault of theirs but born that way and instead of people showing support or minding their bussiness, they spread unnecessary rumour in delight of a downed persons plight.

    True love stands the test of time.
