It is no longer news that Juliet Ibrahim’s marriage has crashed, rather what is news are the circumstances that led to the break up of her 4-year old marriage.
The news went viral during the week that the popular Ghanaian actress has finally parted ways with her husband,Kwadwo Safo Junior, son of Ghanaian inventor and leader of Kristo Asafo Mission, Apostle Kwadwo Sarfo to the surprise of her teeming fans.
The 28-year-old actress, released a press statement through her publicist, Bunmi Odunowo, officially announcing her divorce from her husband and pleading with her fans to accept and respect their decision. She said, her decision to play down the divorce was because the two parties would not be distracted from their responsibilities towards their child.
“Juliet Ibrahim has found it necessary to let her fans know today that, she has filed for a divorce and it is final. She is no more married to Kwadwo Safo and the marriage ended a while back. With the interest of an innocent child on the table, we ask that you treat this difficult but necessary decision to put her divorce out there for her fans to know with utmost respect,” the statement reads.
Meanwhile, reports had it that the reasons behind the breakup may not be unconnected with the claims of the fair-complexioned actress that “the marriage was a mistake that shouldn’t have happened.”
She was quoted as saying that she got involved with her ex-husband briefly and in the course of the friendship, she got pregnant for him.
The unplanned pregnancy is what caused Kwadwo to marry her. The actress, also shockingly claimed that Kwadwo Safo’s gamily did not support the marriage from the onset. The family of her husband failed to show up for the marriage ceremony and have openly showed their disapproval and lack of support for the marriage.
Revealing further, Juliet said the marriage ended over a year and half ago. But in another twist, Juliet is said to have been in a serious relationship with Nigerian-born model cum actor, IK Ogbonna immediately after her marriage collapsed.
She spends most of her time in Nigeria and she is reported to have spent quality time with IK. The model even featured in Juliet Ibrahim’s music video to her lukewarm single released months ago. Juliet and IK broke up recently and IK is reported to have used his social media page to plead to the actress for forgiveness and seeking a comeback.
