“Hi Fabs, Thank you all for your love and support over the years… It’s been an emotional journey and I want to officially announce to you guys that the court has granted me a divorce; I am now officially divorced. Thanks”.
These were Chika Ike’s joyous expression on Facebook, following the dissolution of her marriage with Tony Eberiri, Delta State corporate expert.
It should be recalled that the beautiful Anambra state born actress’ nuptial nut was tied in 2006, and now got crashed 2013; making it a seven year deal.
Her marriage got enmeshed in claims and counter claims of childlessness, rumors of infidelity, misconduct and lack of care on her part and extra-marital affair on the husband’s angle.
Ike had two months earlier filed for divorce in an Abuja High Court, citing irreconcilable differences, domestic abuse and abuse of love as some of the reasons she wanted a formal dissolution of the troubled marriage.
Reports also have it that the then love-birds had for long lived separately and every effort to reconcile them yielded no result.
It is here that one begins to wonder if ‘marriage crashing’ has become akin to our film industry- just few weeks ago, it was Funke Akindele, and now it is Chika Ike… just wondering.
