Just a year after hosting a star-studded wedding ceremony at The Imperial Coliseum, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, rumours of separation have started trailing MMMG boss, Ubi Franklin‘s marriage with Nollywood actress, Lilian Esoro.
The rumour gained momentum yesterday, November 1, after what was supposed to be their one-year anniversary was only openly acknowledged by Ubi who shared that his love for his wife and son ‘knows no boundaries and I will always find this event to be the happiest moment in my life.’
1 year ago I married my lovely wife Lilian who is God Fearing lady and Super mom to our beautiful son "Jayden". My love for you both knows no boundaries and I will always find this event to be the happiest moment in my life. Through the good times and challenging times, our union would only continue to grow from strength to strength. Love you lots! Ubi. Onise iyanu 🙏🏾
Barring Ubi’s somewhat reassuring message, a simple post by Lilian about her sisters seemed to further fuel the speculations.
Amid the rumours of an existing marital discord between the couple, sources cited the fact that Lilian was missing this past weekend when her husband launched his new lounge in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, indicates something is amiss between them.
A very highly placed source tells Thenetng, ‘Lilian shares photos on social media to make it look like she’s in Europe, but it’s all a cover up. She’s been back at her parents home in Magodo and she was in Lagos this weekend but refused to attend Ubi’s event because of their issues.’
When Thenetng further reached out to Ubi Franklin for comments, he furiously lashed out and asked that we respect his privacy and stay off his marriage.
Ubi Franklin and Lilian welcomed their first son, Jayden in the United States on July 18, 2016.
