Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has explained the real reason why her marriage to her ex-husband “packed up” – her husband married her only because she was pregnant.
In a recent interview with HipTV, she said that she wasn’t even a star actress when she got married and when she left her marriage so it wasn’t her profession that led to the divorce.
In her words,
“If I had problems with my marriage, it had nothing to do with my acting profession. I wasn’t even a star when I got married. And when I got out of my marriage, I still wasn’t a star. Up until I got married, I’d only featured in one film, Satanic, and I pulled out of the industry the moment I got married. So I wasn’t acting in those years that I was married. I was a full-time housewife and businesswoman. I actually chose to come back into acting because I had started having issues with my marriage and knew it wasn’t making me happy.
“And I knew that wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life. Yes, there are lots of problems in celebrity marriages; and the reason is that as celebrities, we live in our own world.”
“Once you get married for a reason, then there is a problem. I got married because I was pregnant. That was a reason. My husband married me because I was pregnant for him; that was also a reason. Most men get married to ladies in the industry because of the celebrity aura around them, only to realise that there is a lot to marriage than that,”Iyabo Ojo added.
