Nollywood actress Ini Edo is dispelling rumours that she cheated on her husband leading to their five-year marriage breaking down.
News emerged Wednesday that Ini Edo’s marriage to her US-based husband Philip Ehiagwina has crashed.
Reports said the couple, who lived separately for most of their marriage, decided to formally split in August this year.
The couple was said to have been having problems for quite a while because of trust issues – a major contributor to the divorce. Ini’s family is said to have returned the bride price Philip paid in 2008.
As if to confirm the reports, Ini removed her husband’s name from her social media accounts. She also removed the status ‘wife’ from her biography on instagram.
Speaking on the divorce for the first time, the renowned actress posted on microblogging site Twitter Thursday that the divorce was due to irreconcilable differences.
According to her, “There is a conscious n malicious attempt at tarnishing my image.this whole saga is familiar let’s not forget de past.thanks n God bless”.
Ini Edo added that, “I asked for a divorce from my ex husband cos of lots of irreconcilable differences.i never cheated on my husband.”
Ini and Philip did not have any children together.
