Actor Blossom Chukwujekwu’s ex wife, Maureen Esisi, has spoken up about the real cause of their split.
Because she did not sign divorce papers and was not served with any, according to Maureen popularly known as Red, they are not legally divorced. She added that their breakup was caused by “deceit”.
During a question-and-answer session on Instagram, Red made the claim.
“What really make you and your ex husband separated?” A fan asked.
– Deceit!; Maureen responded
“Why did you agree to divorcing Blossom?” Another fan quizzed
– He didn’t when I wanted to so I agreed when he wanted; Maureen replied
“When did you do your divorce? Because the last time we asked you said you’re not yet done.”
– Last I checked, I signed no divorce papers,” Maureen replied.
“Why didn’t you sign the divorce papers? You weren’t served?” The fan inquired again.
– “Wasn’t served any,” Maureen responded.
On Friday, May 20, in Benin City, Edo State, Blossom Chukwujekwu and his new wife Winifred Akhuemokhan exchanged traditional vows.
In a private traditional wedding ceremony, Blossom Chukwujekwu and his first wife Maureen Ezissi were wed in December 2015. In October 2016, they exchanged vows in a more ornate white ceremony.
When the couple stopped following one another on social media in September 2019, the public became aware of their failed marriage.
On August 11, 2020, Maureen shared details of her failed marriage in an Instagram post.
The fashion stylist said on Instagram on Tuesday on the 1st anniversary of their separation that she was not the cause of her failed marriage like many people believed.
According to the 33-year-old, her marriage did not crash on the grounds of her inability to conceive, disrespectful behaviour, possessiveness or infidelity.
She wrote: “I always wanted a child/children. ALWAYS!!!! The problem was NEVER me. He never wanted kids at that time at least not with me (I assume). He didn’t ‘seem’ interested in having kids…Reasons best known to him till date.”
