Ini Edo Speaks on why she Filed for Divorce from Husband




For the past couple of days, there have been various reports alleging that Nollywood actress, Ini Edo‘s marriage had crashed.

BN did not publish the story, as reports were unverified at the time.

However, Ini has finally broken her silence, verifying the reports, and revealing why she filed for divorce from her U.S based husband, Phillip Ehiagwina.

Here’s what she tweeted:

    Well let’s see. The man was already married when she started fooling around with him, They don’t live together, The man is a broke looser and Ini Edo is addicted to petty petty runs with married old men. Did anyone ever think that a marriage between these two ridiculous human beings was going to last? I hope he starts bashing her the same way she helped him bash his ex. I keep telling these Nollywood mgbekes you can’t gain your happiness through others’ misery.

      This your motherly advise would have made sense if you had given it to ini when she was busy ignoring her own skeletons and hitching up with a married man .right now this your rant is Back to front and upside down . Doesn’t make any sense. But it’s good you stand up and be counted amongst your fellow husband snatcher. Yeye dey smell by their toothless smiles we shall know them.

    Some people are so cruel… Most of them have never met this lady or the husband but sit behind their computers or phones to type nonsense .. cooking up fake stories to tarnish people’s image. Do unto others as you would have them do onto you.

    I can only imagine what she is going through. sometimes we forget celebrities are human as well.

    May God help us all.

      Madam, let somebody steal your husband you love and cherish and bash you openly then come back and say how cruel people are to point out that she wrecked a home. I think it is a life lesson to ladies out there who are planning to or have already wrecked homes by snatching SOMEONE’S husband. What you steal can never be yours. God is watching

    • C'est moi

      October 3, 2014 at 9:52 am

      Men at not property! No one can ‘steal’ your husband without his consent so if your hubby is nicked from you then the blame lies with him not the woman! It is his job to tell the imposing party to bugger off. If he doesn’t then the problem lies within your own relationship.

    I felt sorry for Ini. Her marriage had never seemed real to me. God punish this thing called IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES that has been breaking down marriages. But can there ever be a marriage without a difference? Marriage is for lifetime, but these days its the same story. Whenever I hear people gushing of their love on social media I will be like, there goes the lies again. God help you Ini.

      I think Inis ex ex and other women who have had their homes divided and scattered by conscienceless jezebels will actually sympathize with nene and not you. S’all am saying plus wait till some ‘poor person’ like ini breaks your home, and then becos you have skeleton under your bed you will congratulate the poor person who snatched your husband . Maybe your sins are three much therefore you most offer the other cheek.

    They have never looked compatible to me. As in I have never been able to picture them as friends. I can’t see them joking, laughing and being playful together. They always seemed kinda uncomfortable in each other’s presence and rarely did I see pics of them making eye contact. Philip usually looks away, even when he is facing his wife. He pics a spot to look at somewhere else and I see her doing the same. It was never a good union to begin with.

  12. Vanessa

    October 2, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    Thank u BN for not publishing the rumours. I feel really sorry for Ini at such a young age. Divorce is not easy, whoever is crucifying her right now were not there when she met her hubby to hear what they discussed. I believe the more people stay away from gossip, the better.

    the only Celeb whose marriage is still intact despite lots of controversies is Mercy Johnson…

      Tunde J, you are de only person with a reasonable comment iv seen so far. I do agree with you…. No man can be stolen without his consent and agreement. it just so happens that there really was nothing in the relationship, beside sex, and maybe just the thrill of the chase, that drew them together. All in all, it’s just a sorry state of affairs. Hope they both find peace.

      Really. Okay let ini get her hands on your man then let me hear this your talk. It is people like u who vouch for husbands that get the shock of their lives when u find out what the maid has been up to. All a man needs is a willing receptacle it can be yours or any other willing woman. A man with an erection has no sense. Your mama no teach you. Your man no be jesus e go fall to temptation if offered on a silver platter. If you are so confident set a honey trap for him and see how he will fall head long into the hole. I sorry for you. If women learn to close their legs men will HAVE TO STAY WITH THEIR ONE AND ONLY. Thank me later when you get over your shock.

      October 3, 2014 at 12:14 am

      To be honest, only the fear of GOD will keep a man faithful. NOTHING else will. Let him be the ‘best’ man in the world, or love you like crazy…He can and will still cheat given a clear chance.. If not for GOD.

      That’s why I pity women that marry men that don’t have interest in the things of God. I cry for couples that don’t pray. 99.9% chance of future unhappy home.

      I agree. All the people saying you cannot be faithful without God are helping all the men that cheat. Deciding to have sex is a decision, like deciding what to wear. You do it consicously, So why would a man not be able to control himself? Are you a robot that everytime your dick gets hard you must have sex? Aren’t the men in control of themselves as they track the woman, chat her up, and go to the house/room to have sex?

      Honestly this men cannot have will power is a ruse that allows men to cheat and trick women. My sisters any man that says he cannot control himself sexually is giving you the greatest form of disrespect – he is calling you a fool. If you can hold yourself from public urination and defecaton you can hold yourself from sleeping around. Do not be deceived! Anyone who cheats decided to cheat. No be rape.

    October 2, 2014 at 6:27 pm

    There’s a Gh adage that says “if it has not happened to u, sleep” .
    People are always quick to comment, insult and judge others., sometimes in a very nasty way. That is very bad. Most of the commenters do not know her personally but only know her story from rumors on social media. But do not forget the Bible teaches us not to judge others so we may ourselves not be judged.

    Secondly, it may be true that Ini must have dated her ex hubby whilst he was married or not but how sure are you of your knowledge of what both parties were going through. Mind you I am not condoning adultery. But we must not forget that Ini is as much a human as we all are. If God is capable of forgiving us and not reminding us of our sins, then what right do we have to spew so much hate or judgement on Her.

    Let he who is without sin cast the 1st stone. Yes we may not have cheated or committed adultery, but we are all sinners. Mind you, every sin is a sin. Its only we humans that give it a certain kind of degree. Even Saints cannot claim to be sin free.

    The point I’m making here is, let us not hasten to judge people’s wrongs. We may not know of yours cos u are not a star/celebrity. How does it feel when people who hardly know you well pass silly comments about you. Do unto others what you want others to do unto u.

    And of course only Ini deserves to be bashed for “stealing someone’s husband”. What of the man that was stolen? No words for him… too many women with unfaithful men always out to blame the other woman; what of the man you took vows with? I’d always see the cheating spouse as the main problem, after all you don’t know what he said to the other woman!

    How did our grandparents manage to last that long in their marriage? There were misunderstandings, cheating, children outside marriage, family and work pressure, even sexual incompatibility and yet they never asked for divorce or share their trouble with the rest of the world. These days everything marriage has past its sale out date! And as for those celebrity who like to show off their perfect love affairs with the opposite sex, there is nothing such as a perfect courtship, relationship…Skeletons everywhere O, no lies, just welcome to reality. I hope Ini finds happiness in the end come what may!

    Gosh the amount of hatred spewing out of our hearts…Geeeez…and most of the evil comments are from fellow women. it’s a shame o, that’s why we are not taken seriously in male-dominated societies, we are seen as emotionally unstable beings. Commenting here as if they are best friends with the girl and know all the details. Were you people there when she snatched the man? And the one who took the picture at the hotel should please post so we can see. Look at us rejoicing over someone’s downfall. Shame on us. I’m sure half of the ones saying evil things are not married. People think marriage is easy, until una enter first. Shey Jessica Simpson was a virgin before she got married? She still end up divorced abi? It’s to pray for God for wisdom to sustain and not sit behind our gadgets condemning people we know nothing about. God have mercy on us all

      That’s Jesica Simpson and that’s Yankee. I am a Nigerian man and I want you to take this to the Bank. 95% of Nigerian men would never let go of a woman they deflowered as their wife. Note- not deflower as girl friend but as wife. You can sample 100 men for their opinions and I am certain at least 95 of them will attest to this. I am not saying they wont cheat on her o but they will adore and cherish her die!

      1.) what is the relevance of this ur statement to the topic.
      2.) how stupid are you and your fellow nigerian men? “They can cheat on her o but they wIll love and cherish her”. You don’t cheat on someone you love. That is betraying their trust and putting them in danger of a lot of diseases. Again I ask how stupid are you and you fellow nigerian brothers?

      Well, I know a man who deflowered his “wife”, kept cheating on her even when he was flat out broke and as soon as he landed a plum job, threw out his “virgin wife” who I might add, is the closest thing to an angel on earth (popular opinion), and no, no “babalawo” was involved, neither was there a particular woman. I guess he belongs to the 5 percentile then.

      Still your reason for bringing her and her Virginity and divorce up doesn’t make sense. So Ini is a virgin and sweet girl that got divorced? Girls that aren’t virgins and are bitter about it try to discourage other people from keeping theirs; I’ve noticed this. Her life her decision, your life, yours. If you decide to sleep around, your decision. If someone decides not to, their decision. Leave virginity out of it, that was lame and off point.

    All those who are contributing their two cents(including, plus me). We have heard from the proverbial horse’s mouth. Ngwanu, Biko, the horse has spoken, so let us not make up our own stories. Marriage is a very personal thing, only those inside can tell you how it is, even then, they will both have different versions.

      A baby would only have complicated matters. Two adults who no longer want to be together will not consider a baby’s interests, examples abound. Unless you mean that the reason she left is because they couldn’t have a baby.

      Mose sensible comment. Like you spoke it from my mind. A baby could have saved the marriage. Looking for a baby is an experience no one wants to go through. Plus all the celeb thing and all that…it would only take a miracle to survive.

      October 3, 2014 at 12:42 am

    • Chinedu

      October 3, 2014 at 1:32 pm

      Although I don’t like Ini, your comment makes no sense. There’s no guarantee her ex hubby has a US passport or green card and even if he does, you should know that even though your spouse has a passport or has residency, if you don’t live there for a stated number of years, you won’t get a passport. Ini lived and worked in Nigeria throughout their marriage so marrying him for that is out of it. Let me add that not everyone is crazy about passports. Many people are worried about passports and forget about having a solid career and financial life; total foolishness.

      But the man also committed adultery of his free will unless she forced him so why are u not calling or cursing him out. Why is it only ini edo taking the blame for the inappropriate relationship. No woman can snatch a man unless he is wondering around and wants to be snatched.

A mans genitals hangs outside for goodness sake men get hard ons first thing in the morning for no reason. Sistas can close their damn legs and help the unfortunate creatures but No ! mothers of tomorrow will open their legs to wayward dicks. Women have more control over their private parts if they close their legs wayward dicks cannot wonder into it. Ladies be your sisters keepers and save the souls of broads by closing your legs

      October 4, 2014 at 6:42 am

      Yes men commit adultery most times instigate it but a woman has the POWER to shut that action down immediately. Maybe you never hear of ikeba super power. It’s the power women have over men. A woman can control men with her ASSsert Potential AP. It takes a GOD FEARING MAN to resist that demon. Even Solo, sammy and papa J from the bible were victims. Why do you think Aunty Jesse from the biblical times was given such punishment. Why blame women? Becos woman got to consent to adultery before it takes place. A broder gotta to try now they are polygamous by nature. Broders ‘ain’t loyal’ in the face of ass all served up for devouration. If a broder is loyal to CHRIST he might be able to resist where the senseless dick leads. However in the case of Rape broders be hung. So ladies close your market to married men.

    Na wah for all these people feeling all sanctimonious and calling out people who mention INi’s WELL-KNOWN promiscuity. Where were u when she was sleeping with this her ex while he was still married? Whether u like am or not the truth remains that Ini is a well-known runz babe. Plenty people know her matter. Lemme not add to the story cos BN might not even post….but i hope she calms down and closes her legs to married men. If u’re ok with Ini sleeping with other people’s hubbies than i pray with all my heart she sleeps with urs too. She’s making other women cry and u’re here talking rubbish. These are confirmed gists not hearsay.

      October 3, 2014 at 8:35 am

      Why can’t the men “zip up” tho. I’m not justifying ini but the blame is not only for the woman. It was the man that took a vow with his wife n not ini. The men should keep their vows and zip up because if it’s not ini they sleep with then it will be another girl.

    Why are ppl blaming Ini for stealn anoda woman’s hubby as if u were der? Ppl shd learn to be reasonable n speak wisely.
    Firstly, do u kno wat Phil told her? Also how cud she hv stolen him wifout his consent?
    Secondly, do u kno wat his wife then, Ruth was doing dat pushed him into da hands of anoda woman? If u marry n u dnt do ur job well, ur hubby will run to anoda woman who will now be in charge of sth u didnt value… Its dat simple!
    In my opinion, her marriage has crushed nt bcs of karma or wateva u call it bcs we are all sinners, no sin is greater than da other. Her marriage crushed bcs dey live apart, how can da man live in US, while she lives in Nigeria. I personally dnt blv such marriages last. Ofcourse der might be oda reasons such as money, behaviour, misunderstanding etc.
    Also a gud woman builds her home, every married woman shd tk her hubby as her first child. Wheda u lyk it or not, men are lyk babies.

    Pls BN : ignore previous msg.. Typing errors.. This is the real msg:

    Na Naija guys dey toast 99% of the time. If Guy say e no dey relationship or marriage, babe go take him word now, relationship continue, she like am, dem marry, and then one woman come from no where dey talk say she be wifey especially when d relationship don reach another level and then d man deny d other woman making allegations. Tell me.. How this innocent woman take snatch d guy? She fit even know say d guy dey relationship before but if he say dem don break up, she go take him word. Most of these yeye women complaining dat their husbands have been snatched r just liars. Men r not snatched, they know when they want to leave and their former babes or wives go dey do shakara at dat point bcos dem think say d guys go come back.. And when them notice say d guy don move on, especially when they do so very quick, these exes go dey para. Them no fit take d shame at dat point and then, they go begin dey spread lies say dem snatch their guys, especially if d guy go for person wey she know. Women who say that have no self confidence and maybe there really isn’t anything to be confident about bcos she probably knows how bad she is and that it will be extremely hard for her to get another. Spreading lies na consolation prize for am so dat d other babe won’t appear so appealing to others. How egoistic and self centered can u be? People!!! Desist from this them snatch my husband mentality!!! It doesn’t exist. He left u bcos he felt u weren’t what he really wanted and decided to find happiness in another… I’m Sure u’d do the same if u weren’t happy where u are. Stop spreading false lies.. Ur heart beats while it judges ur lies.. U can get seriously high bp for that alone. May I note: it is usually ugly ladies who come up with such accusations. Fine gehs move on and don’t say a word.

People stay calling good evil and evil, good until it happens to them. Let your wife cheat and move on with the man and see if you won’t be hurt. Is the ex-wife expected not to react? If Ini is human, she is too. Anyway, she has been vindicated. We can all judge how we want but God is the ultimate judge and He has spoken against Ini. Sorry dear Ini, its not too late to change.

    I have been married for 11 years and I have to say this [email protected]### is freaking hard. People are supper judgemental when it come to women and marriage. It’s like men can do no wrong in marriage. As a marriage woman who is in constant contact women their is one one thing I noticed. before an African woman will file for divorce she thinks about it long and hard for years when she is feed up of the situation because of stigmatisation. What people portray in public is different from their when they are alone. We all read things people write about this “stars” on the Internet. Articles and literatures don’t forget are people’s opinions not always the let’s not jump to conclusions. Because of social media people think they know people because they follow their accounts. Divorce is not easy for no one. I won’t wish it on my enemy not to talk of someone I don’t even know except on TV. .i hope they both get out of this with forgiveness and not hate and resentment. Because hate just eats you up from inside.

Him as the head of the house has to take authority before God to deliver both of them. I pray they r guided to good council. It takes discernment for alot of things within each marriage.

If your husband starts running after another woman and forgets his vows to you, don’t blame the other woman that fell in love the way u did. Blame your stupid senseless husband who doesn’t know that they should respect in the sit tuition of marriage, I am tired of women calling other women home wreckers.

    Seems like there is a hotbed of haters on every nigerian social media or news site. People abusing each other, lying on their computers etc.
    I don’t know Ini personally but even if she made a mistake, why laugh and revel in someone’s downfall?
    Even if Ini were Mary Magdalene? And so what? Why would people be so mean and callous? Who amongst the many commenters here know them personally? Why are people so quick to spread rumors and judge? Are you God? I can imagine that if so many commenting here were Jesus, Mary Magdalene would be in the hottest part of hell. But then if Jesus were to be like all these “Pharisees” most people commenting here would also be in the hottest part of hell
    Her marrigae failed. And she has to live with the pains. No one should be the one to “crush the broken reed or put out the flickering flame”
    BTW divorce statistics among young Nigerians is begimning to catch up with that of the develped world. Let us be careful at the how we laugh at others. Marriage and family life is under siege and it is only God’s grace that is holding up a lot of families today.
    lastly i would like to remind BNers of Proverbs 6:16-19
    There are six things the Lord hates,
    seven that are detestable to him:
    17 haughty eyes,
    a lying tongue,
    hands that shed innocent blood,
    18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
    feet that are quick to rush into evil,
    19 a false witness who pours out lies
    and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

    I accidentally liked your comment. The 95% of men you quoted are probably the majority of you all that we know are immature, feel entitled, think they have a right to what they don’t deserve, are feeble-minded, and lack integrity. Real men don’t measure a woman’s worth by her vagina, and they know that promiscuity is not a good look for anyone, man or woman. I personally deem promiscuous men in the same light as i do promiscuous women: both types are cheap.

    And to all the ‘this none of my/your/our business’ people:
    When they got married & had it in our faces through various platforms (printed & online) = our business.
    When they be posting about loving each other to the moon & back = our business.
    When they divorce = not our business… yet you took the time to read the post and then the comments.
    Oya clap for yourself Mtchwww.
