January 10, 2014 – Comedian Princess Damilola Adekoya Confirms Marriage Crash “Why I Left My Husband”
Popular Nigerian comic star, Princess Damilola Adekoya has ended her marriage of less than one year.
Last year, the talented comedienne married a struggling movie producer, Mr Jeremiah Adeshola in Lagos state Nigeria.
Days after a viral rumour about their marriage crash, Damilola herself has confirmed the collapse. She explained that her marriage crashed over irreconcilable differences.
“Yes, my marriage has ended due to irreconcilable differences. We have been having issues since the wedding but we still remained together hoping that we would be able to work it out. But apparently, we couldn’t work it out, hence the reason for our separation. We actually ended it several months ago but we didn’t want to make it public. I am sure God knows best,” Princess told audience at a comedy show in Onikan, Lagos.
Days after her confirmation offline, she also took online to shed more light on the marriage crash.
“God says Luv odas & 4give. He didn’t say ‘Take leave of ur brain & let dem destroy u’ or ‘Change them’. Deal wit ur issues, Dey are plenty enuf!” she tweeted.
Sources close to the comedy star also gave some hint on what caused the marriage crash.
Princess confided in a close friend that it was the very week that they got married that she got to know the guy’s intention fully.
According to the source, two weeks into their union, they started having problem. Rather than having the crack patched, the trouble festered until both decided to give each other a breather after two months of tolerating each other.
“Princess felt she could change some of those findings but her effort proved abortive until she decided to quit the marriage,” the source said.
Another source blamed the collapse on Princess who was said to have rushed into the marriage, without bothering to understudy Adeshola, all because she felt age was no longer on her side.
“Her desperation to be married was her greatest mistake which makes her fall into the hands of an opportunist who disguise as a lover,” another source told P.M.NEWS.
He explained that Adeshola, as a struggling movie producer, had allegedly married Princess with intention that she could help lift his status in the entertainment industry.
Others have also laid the blame on the part of Princess whose celebrity status dwarfed that of her husband, and she didn’t pay attention to that attitude problem of her man.
A source who claimed to have run into the couple in one of the highbrow restaurants while still together narrated how the husband seemed so uncomfortable as Princess did the ordering of their meals and publicly brought out her bank debit cards (ATM cards) and instructed the husband on which of the cards to be used to pay for the service.
“That guy looked deflated as many eyes caught what’s going on between the Princess as a celebrity and her husband at that restaurant,” the source revealed.
It was gathered that Adeshola attempted to curtail his wife’s high profile and celebrity lifestyle but he could not and when he got tired, he decided to take a walk.
On the 8th of May 2013, the couple did a lavish wedding ceremony in Ikoyi Lagos. The reception followed immediately at Balmoral Event center in Oregun Lagos.
The wedding was officiated by Prophet Gabriel O Fakeye of C&S Movement Church, Ayo Ni o.
Princess Damilola is planning to file for divorce soon. Damilola’s marriage has been rated the shortest celebrity marriage in Nigeria.
