Yoruba Star actress Funke ‘Jenifa’ Akindele has finally broke her silence on her alleged failed marriage.
The comic actress has stated that she’s taking the case to court to clear her name.
Reports claim that the marriage news of Funke’s troubled marriage was first reported by “The Nation”, so Funke Akindele has sent a text message to the media house.
The message reads: “I read in the newspaper yesterday that I am divorced. What proof do you have? And I am taking this to court because my marriage is intact. You guys are rumour mongers – Funke Akindele Oloyede.”
The alleged rumor was started on Tuesday that the actress has divorced her husband, Kehinde Oloyede – son of former Iyaloja of Oshodi market.
What started the rumor was when Kehinde Oloyede himself announced a “divorce” via his facebook page on Monday. He said: “It is with heavy heart that I am announcing the separation of me and my wife, Mrs Olufunke Akindele. We have both agreed to go our separate ways because of irreconcilable differences. We are still best of friends and we would forever remain good friends.”
The statement, which the actress’ husband has since deleted from his facebook wall.
Funke’s elder sister, who also acts as her spokesperson, Mrs Ayo-Ola Muhammed, failed to make an official statement she promised when contacted because, according to reports, the actress asked that no
statement be made on the issue.
Sources also disclosed that Funke
Akindele’s husband may have deleted the “divorce” post on his facebook page, due to pressure from friends and family members.
Sources say the actress has been said to have been crying since the incident, fearing criticisms by her fans and her clients’ reactions.
Funke’s decision to marry the real estate business man, was severely criticised by many who asked why she would want to marry a man who has kids else where with another woman.
