Nollywood star Padita Agu has confirmed colleague Blossom Chukwujekwu and wife Maureen Ezissi have separated following reports that the three-year-old marriage has hit the rocks.
JiveNaija.com had earlier reported that the Nigerian actor called it quits because of “lack of respect” from his wife.
According to reports, Blossom has already packed out of his matrimonial home some few weeks ago and has informed Maureen’s parents of his plans to seek divorce.
Reacting to the rumours on social media, Ms Agu said “the news about their separation, is sadly and painfully true but the news being peddled and written about them is however very very untrue.”
In an Instagram post, the actress, who claimed to have known the couple separately before they got together, mounted a spirited defence for Maureen insisting that none of the allegations of gross disrespect towards her husband is true.
“Maureen is one of the sweetest souls I have ever encountered,” she wrote as she captioned a photo of her good friend.
Additionally, Ms Agu entreated the general public to respect Blossom Chukwujekwu and his wife’s “choice for privacy over this issue and pray for the best for them.”
