Monalisa Chinda Admits "my Marriage Has Crashed" by ima1(f): 5:47pm On Aug 30, 2009
Star actress, Monalisa Chinda, on Friday finally admitted that her marriage to Segun Dejo-Richards had broken down irretrievably.
She disclosed this through a statement by her lawyer, Mr Festus Keyamo, confirming weeks of speculations and inquiries about the marriage contracted about five years ago.

In the statement, the mother of one says the marriage broke down because of incompatibility and irreconcilable differences.

“Like millions of other marriages, my marriage had its own strains and stress. I loved and adored my husband but there were many areas of incompatibility between us.

These instances of incompatibility led us to disagree strongly on many occasions. At the end, it appeared we could not manage the situation, which led to the marriage breaking down irretrievably.’’

The actress, who is one of the 13 Glo Ambassadors recently selected by the telecommunication giants, said she has instructed her counsel, Festus Keyamo, to file for divorce.

But despite the break-up, she said she will continue to respect her husband. In the formal statement, she promised to take care of her daughter and not to rehash the sordid details of the failed marriage in the media.

“As a proper African woman, I will continue to respect my husband and will not raise my voice against him, since he is the father of my beautiful daughter. I will not exchange words with him in the media. I wish him well in all his endeavours and I hope he wishes me well too,” she said.

In the statement, which read in part like a sack letter, she said she will not offer any further comments as she would like to concentrate on her career and carry on in her responsibility as a Glo ambassador.

The break up is coming as a surprise as Monalisa on several occasions vowed that nothing could separate her from her husband. She was once quoted to have said at the christening of their daughter,Tamar Kirejesu , that if she were to reincarnate she would still marry Dejo again.

Sometime s last year, a soft-sell magazine reported that Monalisa had relocated to her uncle’s house in FESTAC. She promptly denied it, saying she only went there because of its proximity to her film location then. She described those peddling the rumour as enemies of progress.

When contacted on phone, her husband said he was shocked that his wife took such an action.
“What happened between us does not call for divorce. She has simply succumbed to bad advisers from her family and friends. I have made efforts to talk to her but she is not picking my calls,” he said.

NFC learnt that Monalisa packed out of her matrimonial home about a month ago for reasons she is not willing to divulge yet

nollywood is a busy business, i still dont see how some people get the time for marriage.

rita dominic the bachelorette is probably laughing her ass off, since i heard they dont like each other or they are foes or something like that.

good for her, she came out openly with it otherwise our half-baked reporters (i.e CITY LYING PEOPLE) would have helped her re-create a garnished story. It looks like the couple have mutual respect for each other so chances are they'll give it a shot again. I wish her all the best!

What a pity, and I was ruling for her with Chioma Chukwuka. Wish her the very best and hope they are able to reconcile whatever differences.

good luck with that. Let her continue on her proper African woman crusade.

Hope the ex will be a proper African man.

was reading about Jon and Kate and the guy was abusing the wife for not showing more heat -saying she's acting like nothing's wrong.

Am so sad. She really struggled to make her marriage work, because that rumour of a break up was over a year ago and she kept on saying her marriage was intact.
I guess she couldnt take it no more.

Please, who knows about Oge Okoye? Her marriage has been speculating impending crash (i feel bad saying this) has it been rectified?
