Jan 20, 2015 – Nollywood Actress Georgina Onuoha Secretly Divorced Husband Dr Ifeanyi Igwegbe After DUI Arrest & Medical License Suspension

Georgina Onuoha’s Ex-husband Has Alcohol Addiction Problem, Arrested For Drunk Driving In California – Nollywood Source

Y’all must have read Nollywood actress Georgina Onuoha secret confession which surfaced yesterday on Facebook.

Yes the mother of two beautiful girls has divorced her hubby, Dr Ifeanyi Igwegbe, a former medical doctor in the United States of America.

According to a reliable source who intimated this morning, Georgina left Nigeria several years ago with the hope that she’s going to be living with a fulfilled medical doctor but unknown to her, the man in question has alcohol addiction problem.

The guy was arrested a few years back for DUI (Driving Under Influence) after he almost killed a motorist while rushing to the hospital for surgery with blood alcohol concentration of .15, almost twice the legal limit.

Ifeanyi Igwegbe Drug Arrest Report Video:

In 2013, his medical license was suspended by California Medical Board:

Here is a brief statement:

“The Medical Board of California has suspended the medical license of a Sutter North Medical Group doctor charged with driving under the influence, causing injury. Ifeanyi Charles Igwegbe crossed the centerline May 6 on Highway 99 at Riego Road and broadsided a car driven by an Olivehurst woman. According to the California Highway Patrol, Igwegbe had a blood alcohol concentration of .15, almost twice the legal limit.

Few months to their divorce, his medical license was suspended and that was how their marriage problem started.

When her hubby became jobless, the full-time housewife was forced to start working round the clock in order to feed her children. The source said when the Nollywood diva couldn’t bear the stress anymore, she called it quit with her hubby.

This is what Georgina told her FB fans yesteday:

“It has taken almost years to do this; it’s taken a lot of soul searching, prayers and counseling to get to this juncture. It’s not a breaking news that my almost a decade relationship is over.
While I do this with highest respect for my kids, family, friends, I also do owe you my fans my sincere gratitude for your support and prayers. A lot has been put out there on the internet about my marriage. I crave your indulgence to please pray for my family.
There are no victors or vanquish(ed). I still have tremendous respect for the father of my kids and I ask same from you all. He is a good man and a great father, the fact that this marriage did not work is our failures as two adults. I take full responsibility for the part I played in it. While marriage ends, true friendship never dies. We remain good friends and great parents to our two lovely daughters. We will do our best to give them the best life has to offer. Once again, thanks for all your love and support through the years.”

Nollywood ladies should learn to not marry for money, Georgina must have left her lover back in Nigeria when a colleague introduced her to the wealthy US-based doctor who is now struggling to get back up.

    Good talk Naijagist. What happened to “stand by your man”?. Not that the man was violent to her. She should have worked with him to quit drinking but instead she opted for divorce now that the money is no longer coming in. She married him for money NOT love. Most of these actresses are glorified harlots.

        I can Tell u more about her devilish character. Even her husband’s cousin (Shantel) who was staying with her in US was brought back to Nigeria without any cloth except the one she was putten on. Courtesy of same wicked Gorgina. All her siblings were moved down to USA by this same hubby of hers. Dr became drunk out of frustration from Gorgina’s heats.

    Georgina are you a Christian? Did you marry him only because of money? If you answer yes then go back to your husband. That drinking is not normal. He married you because he thinks you will stand by him. Do you know if the problem is coming also from you? Examine yourself.spiritual husband can cause this.

    You Georgina are the one to take serious action about his drinking issue because he does not know what he is doing. It is an evil spirits attack or generational curse because he was born in his village to serve the idols but instead he studied and choose a different route as such the ancestors are not happy.

    Goergina swallow your Nollywood pride and help your husband do deliverance. you too need deliverance. Bring him to Nigeria either to Prophet or Jeremiah of Waurri and you see how he will stop that drinking. It used to happen to my husband and today he is OK.

    …..Shame on U Georgina, reflect on this as food for your thoughts.

    This man was doing well before U joined him in the USA.
    Now that the two of u married for over ten years, look what he has turned to. You should be ashamed of yourself that you met a man comfortable ,and after ten years of staying with him your are leaving him broke?

    This is disgraceful, I think u r the problem here .Perhaps u drove ur husband to alcohol.
    Where do u think u want to start from now come back home and start glorified prostitution in the name of Nollywood?

    I can’t even connect ur face to any Nollywood movies.
    Woman search ur conscience? This is heartless.

    The only genuine excuse I think U might have for leaving ur husband ,is if during the marriage your husband abused you domestically, but if he did not then u r a very heartless woman!

    • Tina

      January 21, 2015 at 5:26 AM

      Tboy or whatever your name is. **** You should ALWAYS get your facts right before you post any ****comment. You don’t know jack about what went wrong in the marriage. You must be a ****** to jump to conclusion. It is not always a woman’s fault when a marriage dissolves. There no smoke without fire.

          January 21, 2015 at 9:00 PM

          Tina, tell the truth,U are Georgina Onuoha. Here is my advise to you again. I know the truth is always very better….But think about the future of your children. Also rewind back to the time you stayed at home for good ten years without work and this dude was bringing food on the table for U and the family.

          Was he an alcoholic then????
          Why have you decided to work out of the marriage now….I don’t remember reading in this article that the man abused you in the marriage.

          So Tina or Georgina or what ever u call ur name .Is it ok in your myopic world and enclave that U dwell; for a man to labour/slave for ten years to provide for the family-Only for the woman to call it quits when the money stops coming?
          Tina/Georgina if U r the last woman on this earth for me to marry I would rather stay single and be a monk!

        • Tboy

          January 21, 2015 at 9:15 PM

          Tina or what ever ur name is-Please answer this question. If for example you are in a marriage for ten years, with two kids, then suddenly you husband suffers a massive stroke or he was involved in an accident and confined to a wheel chair.

          Are going to work away from such marriage because the man cannot work again?(This is just an example do not take it personal.).
          Let me read your views on that question- for me to be able to sum U up.

    Its not Shame on T Boy…Tina..but truly shame on Georgina..
    If the man has this issue…why will his wive leave him.
    Is it not wickedness.
    The man brought her to US…took care fed and clothed her and the kids..paid bills etc…she had an averagely comfortable life.
    Now he has the best thing to do to wicked the guy so bad and leave him…? If he is drinking. She can help him come off it.
    If he is a beater molester and infidelity specialist…then there could be this issue…Other than that,,Gina has betrayed him and the true tenants of together or worse. seems you will do same..thats very bad..change that mentality.
    no MATTER WHAT HAPPENS….i can never abandon my wife..till the Last moment..unless shes an unrepentant Adultress…minus that..i will stand by her…Police case or not.

    I’m not in anyway saying that she did right or encouraging her to divorce her husband, no way at all, but we must understand the human thinking and ways of life, from her statement the wrong he did was drink and drive which automatically made him loss his liesense right? she had to work round the clock to feed her family again I’m I right? Ok saying all of that! Fristy drink and drive is a seriouse issue that shouldn’t be torolated in any form or sharp many of us have lost loved once thru this and it hurts so much. He is paying the price now, fair dues to him no excuses for his behaviour. Georgina, Georgina, Georgina! Think cast ur mind back ask yourself wht did you do that made him an alcoholic? He couldn’t have been one before now else u wouldn’t have had two beautiful kids by him right? A woman that works out of her marriage never makes a better one after, ask questions, in come circumstances few do and if it was a genuine reasons like abuse, or not knowing the nature of his job before hand( armed robber) God has a way of putting laugher on their faces for such women. But in ur case hmmmm! I can’t judge u, u and God will be the judge. Lemme advice u, men will come into ur life and do u what u did to ur husband if u don’t stay by ur man and help him back on his feet again. dont follow the likes of ur mates they are regretting there actions now all of them from Kate henshaw to ini edo etc. I just pray u see things differently and make amends it’s not too late, bless

    Tina are you a true christian or married? If your answer is yes how long have you been a true christian or married for? I am not in the marriage but know more about what led people to alcohol, stealing mental health disorder.

    If you say yes then help Georgina. She may be the problem just like what Tboy also wrote.

    Georgina dont listen to negative friends they are demons and evil towards your life. Did your mum ever walked away from her marriage? Jesus love you take your husband go help him do deliverance or pray for him with faith he will be ok. He does not know how he got to that. I have explained it all. Help your husband and be together as happy family. Do not try to go get another husband that one will be worst if you are the problem. check your self as well not the man. I am married for a very long time and have passed through all sorts and still stand firm in my marriage. a word to a wise is enough.

  15. Grace

    January 21, 2015 at 4:46 PM

    I do hope Georgiana is reading this. I wish I had her numbers to counsel her. Patrick Mamfrica thank you. See how readers want you to go back and help your husband. They love you. There are bad friends out there who want to pull you down and then laugh at you behind you.

    She can be on benefit for some months use the time make sure her husband get help then later both of them come back to their jobs. Thank God for that.

    Another story Georgina this is the time he need u most and as the wife u should be praying for him and divorce is not the solution dear u guys should stop marring for money remember is for better for worst,I can see u guys don’t understand the world better for worst,u’re a disappointment to ur family and fans u were my favourite but not anymore bcos I’m also married and this few years of my marriage has really taught me alot and I’ve so much respect for my husband even if he’s not rich I love him and I know one day baba God will change our story so Georgina go back to ur hubby no matter how serious the case may be, a word is enough for d wise.

    Guys, don’t be too hard on Georgina, a lot of women are being abused daily and when alcoholism is involved the level of abuse heightens…….we are talking about physical, mental and even sexual abuse.

    When kids are involved the woman weighs her words carefully and this is what Georgina has done to protect her kids.You have no idea what it is like to live with a man that gets drunk too often, sometimes you have to leave to LIVE and protect your kids

    Gina ,this man kept u in the house, fed u, paid the bills, the boat start to rock u couldn’t stand the rocking u left, If the man does the same to u,u will call him a wicked man. Just because u a feeding him nw u decided to divorce him. IF ur next husband loses his job u will jump ship again. This man needs help and not divorce ,who knows what made him turn to drinking .You married him because he is a doctor ,nw his licence is suspended u decided to leave him but remember its not the end of the world for him

    Andy, do you guys no how many women have lost theur lives due to domestic violence in America especially when substance abuse is involved? Why are Nigerians so quick to judge without getting their facts right!!! This girls marriage collapsed since four years ago, she did everything to support her family, yet his crazy sister won’t let them have…must she die just to be married? May god have mercy on the level of ignorance people display here. Don’t judge people you don’t know nor have lived in their shoes …

      Nkem, God bless you my dear. you know, it’s always easy for people to judge without knowing the facts.I remember what this girl went through in the hands of her inlaws. Marriage is not a do or die. She tried everything but they wouldn’t let her be because their brother is a doctor in America…now look at what it has come to? Leave this poor girl alone and stop judging her.

    Gina marriage is a union of two forgivers and bear this in mind even if marriage is a bed of rose,Roses still have thorns in them. There is what my Lovely mum normally say ” is not all about counting people’s fault but also remember d good times you used to ‘ve with them and then forgive them.

  26. Ijeoma

    March 23, 2016 at 2:14 PM

    U guys are good in jumping into conclusion. Has any of u ask her how she feels? And who told u that she doesn’t have her own part of the story. Marriage is for better for worse yes but that’s not the reason y a woman should kill herself becus she’s married. Men should also put themselves in a woman’s shoes and tell us if he’s going to stay back if The wife is an alcoholic. Who guys will always talk but he that wears the shoes knws where it’s itching.

    Georgina I observed in nollywood is a decent girl and calm, from the message she released about her marriage break up shows that too.she alone knows what she endured in that marriage and decided to quit and live for her children, plz let her be.some women has endured so much in marriage and pay with their lives.Live wise
