Star actress Ini Edo finally admitted that her six-year marriage to United States of America based husband, Phillip Ehigwina has collapsed irretrievably.
The Nollywood star in her twitter handle, @ini4phil stated today (October 2, 2014), “I asked for a divorce from my ex husband because of lots 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.”
This confirmation puts paid to all the speculations that the union, her husband’s second marriage, could be saved.
When ENCOMIUM Weekly contacted her yesterday, she begged to be left alone for now. That she was in the South East and will consider issuing a statement soon.
Gists of the collapsed union became talk of the town last week, and several allegations flew about, especially around adultery.
But one of the things that tasked the union was the ‘across the sea’ relationship of the couple. While Phillip lives in America, Ini is usually in Nigeria. Though they keep in touch and spend time together, the separation took its toll.
And the fact that they don’t have any child between them must have put enormous pressure on the marriage.
Now, we await details of the court papers in this divorce which has saddened many.
