My Husband Wants Divorce After Taking My Late Husband’s Possessions – Wife

A 38-year-old woman, Amudalat Agboola, whose husband on Thursday approached a Lagos Island Customary for dissolution of their five-year-old marriage, has described her husband as a gold digger.

Amudalat, who owned a boutique but now seller hot drinks (paraga), told the court that her husband had collected all that she had and wanted to abandon her in the name of recession.

“I now sell `Paraga’ in the same shop I used to sell clothes from Turkey and Saudi Arabia,” she said.

She said that he tricked her into the marriage by lying to her that he was a Magistrate and would help her secure hers and late husband’s property from her in-laws.

“My husband lied to me that he was a Magistrate, but I got to know that he was a Court Registrar when he brought me to this court for dissolution.

“I met Agboola in 2010, he was the Community Development Association Chairman of Magboro Village in Mowe where my late husband and I built our four bedroom flat.

“He was chosen as part of a four-man delegate by the village to pay a condolence visit when my husband died.

“My late husband, Adulhakeem Aderoju and I met and got married in Saudi Arabia, where I was selling clothes and he was washing cars.

“We hustled together to buy landed property here in Nigeria. I later relocated here with our two daughters to establish my boutique business but he was still in Saudi.

“He got sick and came back to Nigeria and eventually died on Oct. 4, 2010, that was when my nightmare started.

“My mother and brother in-laws sold our two cars, raided the house while I was in the hospital with my husband and took gold jewellery and documents of our property.

“I only had the documents of the four bedroom flat that we occupy, which I was kidnapped by hired assassins and threatened to release but refused.

“I locked the house and started staying with my friend at Igbosere, that was where I saw Agboola again at the Magistrate Court.

“He said he heard all that happened to me and that if I moved close to people like him, as a Magistrate he would help me get back all my in-laws had taken from me.

“He persuaded me to go back to the house with my kids and said he would use the power of his office to put police men around the premises to guard us.

“On several occasions I have visited him at Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, he always come downstairs to see me all suited up, little did I know that he was a fraud,” she said.

Amudalat said that Agboola and her became close and promised to help me with the education of her daughters.

She said she was kidnapped and blindfolded the second time by hired killers who requested for the documents of the house but managed to escape.

“When I got home and told Agboola he said that he cannot risk his life to help me unless I marry him, so I agreed.

“My mother was not in support because she said his words were sugar quoted but I begged her to give her blessings.

“He later told me he was married and has four children. We got married on May 20, 2011, in Ilorin, my hometown.

“Two days after the wedding we came back to Lagos, when we got to Obalebde he packed the car and said he had an unpleasant news for me.

“He said he has not been able to secure an apartment for us, that the agent he paid returned the money and I have to squat at his friend’s house.

“I started staying at his friend’s house where he comes to see me. I later discovered I was pregnant.

“Agboola and I went to the house at Mowe to pack items such as two washing machine, plasma TV, gas cooker and generator.

“I never set my eyes on those items again, Agboola took them away.

“He later secured a one room apartment for me here in Lagos Island at Oshodi St., and he persuaded me to give my in-laws the key to the house which I refused.

“Agboola deserted me and my three children in the badly ventilated room which was also next to the toilet used by everyone in that house.

“Out of annoyance I wanted to return to my late husband’s house in Mowe but looked for the key I used to lockup the gate but could not find it.

“I called Agboola and he said he had given them to my in-laws, I almost went insane, that was the only property I had out of all my late husband and I worked to build.

“When I went to the house I learnt that it had been rented out by my in-laws, all effort to repossess the house proved abortive.

“Agboola does not come to see us again or carry out any responsibility on his child, all the promises he made to me were lies and I later discovered I was the third wife.

“On the day he promised to send money and I was expecting an alert was the day I was served by the court.

“He saw me as a widow and took advantage of that and the fact that I didn’t go to school, ” she said.

She prayed the court to help her recover all her items and her late husband’s property taken away and the one he conspired with her in-laws to take from her.

The husband, Abdulrasheed-Olakunle Agboola, a court registrar at the Isolo Magistrate’ Court, said that he wanted dissolution because of the present economic recession.

Agboola, who did not deny all that his wife had said, said he could no longer cope with the responsibility and that money was the cause of their problems.

He said he and his wife Amudalat were incompatible and that she sent him a text threatening him, so to avoid trouble he decided to come for dissolution.

The Court President, Mr Awos Awosola, said that Agboola who was in the best position to help the widow as an employee of the Lagos State Judiciary took advantage of her.

“You were in best position to help her secure her late husband’s property from her in-laws by telling her how to go about it through the Law but you used her.

“You changed her story from grace to grass, a boutique owner turned `Paraga’ seller, you took her from a four bedroom apartment to a `face me I face you’.

“This case will still be referred to a higher court because it is a case to impersonation and fraud.

“Now that you have wrecked her, you want to have nothing to do with her and you blame it on recession,” he said.

Awosola urged the two parties to maintain peace and adjourned the case to Jan. 1, 2017, for further hearing on the matter.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Joint Custody Agreement Approved By a Judge

Court documents obtained by ET reveal that the estranged couple’s legal agreement was approved on Dec. 2, and grants Jolie physical custody of their six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. Jolie and Pitt had previously agreed to the terms on Oct. 26.

Additionally, a team of five mental health professionals are helping the family with “safe harbor therapy.”

Meanwhile, Pitt will continue to have agreed-upon therapeutic visitations with the kids, as determined by the family’s therapist who “shall at all times consider the best interests of the minor children,” according to the documents. Pitt will also continue to participate in random drug and alcohol testing, as well as weekly individual and group therapy. The Jolie-Pitt children will also continue to participate in individual counseling.

“Originally, Pitt had volunteered to do the drug and alcohol testing himself,” a source tells ET. “But now that a judge has signed off on these docs, it has become mandatory and cannot be reversed without another court filing.”

The source also reveals, “Brad has not seen his children alone without a monitored therapist since the plane incident,” adding, “Angelina has not left the children’s side since the plane incident. She still has not completed her film [First They Killed My Father]. She has been with them the whole time trying to make sure they heal.”

As for if Pitt will see the children for the holidays, that remains unclear. “If a child says they don’t want to see Brad on Christmas, the psychiatrist isn’t going to force them,” the source says. “That’s the whole purpose of this agreement.”

A separate source tells ET that the legal custody agreement is voluntary and only temporary.

“It was agreed upon several months ago, which has continued,” the source says. The source also notes this agreement can be changed if Pitt decides to petition the court.

After looking into the aforementioned Sept. 14 plane incident, both the FBI and the Department of Child and Family Services closed their investigations into Pitt, clearing the 52-year-old actor of the child abuse accusations against him, and determining no charges would be filed.


“In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States which landed in Los Angeles carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation,” the FBI said in a statement to ET in November. “No charges have been filed in this matter.”

Sex-starved housewife gets divorce

A sex-starved housewife, Sherifat Asimiyu, on Friday approached an Ibadan Customary Court sitting in Agodi to dissolve her 10-year-old marriage with Mr Saheed Asimiyu.

Sherifat told the court that apart from starving her of sex, Saheed was also in the habit of beating and biting her whenever they have domestic quarrels.

The complainant said she could no longer cope without sex, as her husband had not slept with her in the last six months.

“There is no doubt about his ability to provide food, money and other material things for me and the two children of the union but I am not satisfied with all these without sex.

“He abandoned me deliberately, I cannot take it anymore because I am still young and I see no reason for his action.

“To make the issue worst, he was in the habit of beating and biting me whenever we have misunderstanding over minor issues,” she alleged.

The husband, who is a motor spare parts dealer, admitted that he had starved his wife of sex, as he was on “sex strike” in the last one month, to punish the woman for her bad character.

According to him, his action is to punish the complainant and make her to turn a new leaf.

The husband told the court that he had warned her several times to stop associating with bad friends, but had ignored him.

Saheed also told the court that he would not prevent his wife from getting the divorce she asked for, “if that is what will make her satisfied”.

Mukaila Balogun, the president of the court upheld the prayer of the woman and approved the dissolution of the marriage.

The judge ordered the defendant to be paying N6,000 to Sherifat as monthly allowance for the upkeep of their two children.

“My arrogant wife tells me to ask Google whenever I ask questions” – Divorce Seeker

A commercial driver, Taiwo Oladepo, on Wednesday prayed an Agege Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 11-year-old marriage over alleged lack of care and submission by the woman.

The 35-year-old Mr. Oladepo, father of four, resides at Number 29, Anthony Nwosu, Ileke Estate, Meiran, Lagos.

He claimed that his 36-year-old wife, Biola, was troublesome, disobedient, not submissive and not caring.

“My wife is too troublesome; she is stubborn, arrogant and not submissive. She is also lazy and wayward.

“There has been no peace in this marriage; we live like cat and rat,” he told the court.

The petitioner submitted that his wife went out and returned any time she liked, adding that each time he asked her where she had been, she told him: “Go and ask Google’’.

“I am no longer interested in the union,” he submitted.

Responding, Biola, a petty trader, denied the allegations.

She said that the petitioner lacked respect for her and beat her regularly.

“There was a time his friends tried to caution him about his attitude toward me.

“The beating is unbearable but l kept bearing it because of my children,” she said.

She added that her husband had illicit affairs with different women.

She consented to the dissolution of the marriage, but appealed to the court to give her the custody of the children, urging that her husband should be responsible for the children’s education and healthcare.

The Court President, Philip Williams, adjourned the case till January 31, 2017 for judgment.

Angelina Jolie Breaks Silence On Her Divorce With Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has broken her silence on her split with Brad Pitt, following his first public appearance since the divorce proceedings began.

This week, Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations, following the investigation by the Los Angeles Country Department of Children and Family Services into an incident involving his eldest son Maddox on a private plane on 14 September.

Reacting to the news, a spokesperson on behalf of Jolie released a statement:

“The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children. Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”

When news of the breakdown of the marriage broke in September, Jolie’s attorney Robert Offer released a statement that read: “Angelina has filed for dissolution of the marriage. This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.” This is the first time that Jolie has spoken out since.

Political differences leads five-year-old marriage into divorce.

A 44-year-old man, Iliasu Salami, on Thursday in Iseyin, Oyo State, lost his five-year-old marriage to irreconcilable political differences between him and his estranged wife, Rashidat.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Salami had approached the Iseyin Customary Court, seeking the dissolution of the marriage over allegations of disobedience.

He told the court that his wife had no regard for him, adding that his opinions did not count in their affairs.

He said his wife joined a different political party against his instruction and wish.

Salami, however, did not state his or ex-wife’s party.

“All efforts to resolve the issue by both families failed,” Salami said, and pleaded with the court to terminate the marriage.

The President of the customary court, Chief Adelodun Oyegbenle, said, “Rashidat’s refusal to show up in court after several summons and the evidences tendered by the husband on the political differences between them are enough to show that no love is lost between the couple.

“It is unfortunate that the defendant (Rashidat) did not attend any of the court proceedings despite court summons. This court hereby dissolves the five-year-old union.”

Oyegbenle ordered Salami to pay N10,000 monthly upkeep allowance for the two children of the failed marriage.

Mariah Carey Begged Nick Cannon For Divorce So She Could Remarry- Report

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s divorce was finalized because the singer begged him.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the 46-year-old reportedly called her ex-husband pleading with him to sign their divorce papers because she wanted to marry her fiancé the Australian businessman, James Packer. This is believed to have happened just days before she split with the billionaire.

“I want you to sign the divorce papers. I really want to get married to James Packer,” Carey reportedly told Cannon in a phone call.

Carey and Cannon ended their marriage in August 2014 but their divorce dragged on for nearly two years over custody of their twins. However, according to several reports, they finally settled on an agreement.

“Nick and Mariah’s divorce was dragging on and on, mainly because of the back and forth between their lawyers. Mariah’s team brought in [famed L.A. divorce attorney] Laura Wasser, who helped simplify things, but then Mariah called Nick and said, ‘I really want to get married. Will you sign these papers?’ Nick was cool and said, ‘I’m not going to stand in your way. I’ll sign the papers,’” a source told the Post.

But a couple of days later, Carey and Packer’s relationship blew up, and they split.

According to a report by TMZ, Carey and Packer’s lawyers had been negotiating a pre-nuptial agreement, and he was demanding they rush the document after being told it would not be ready in time for a March 1 wedding.

The pre-nup was never signed, and now Carey is demanding Packer pay her a $50 million settlement, because that’s the amount she would have received from the unsigned pre-nup.

My Wife is a First-Class Prostitute, Husband tells Court

An electrician, Ibrahim Ekeolu, has said that his wife, Taiwo, is a first-class prostitute.

Ekeolu of Iyemetu-Igosun Areas of Ibadan made the assertion on Friday when he testified in a divorce petition institute by his wife at Mapo Customary Court, Ibadan against him.

The respondent, who denied the allegations in the petition, accepted the divorce request from his wife. “Your honour, Taiwo is a first class prostitute who thinks she can continue to fool me.

“Taiwo goes out and return home at anytime she feels, staying two or three months with her parents.

“In this state of constant abandonment, I saw Taiwo cooking very early one morning, she told me that one of her relatives was sick and needed food in the hospital. “She took the food and I carefully trailed her, I saw her entering an hotel with the food. “Though, I couldn’t get the room she entered, but I waited until she came out with her concubine and both of them sighted me and they took another direction out.

“Taiwo knew what I was going to do, when she got home, she packed out  with most of my belongings.

“Taiwo as a woman is a drunkard, when she returns home late, alcohol smells all over her body and sleeps to unconsciousness.

“When I reported the incident to her parents, they instead supported her as they usually did,” Ibrahim explained.

But, Taiwo, an Ibadan-based trader, had urged the court to dissolve her six-year-old marriage to her husband for allegedly stealing her money. The mother of one and resident of Ireakari-Mokola, told the court that her husband was crippling her life through constant theft of her capital. “For a number of times, Ekeolu has stolen the money meant for my business despite the fact that he does not make any contribution to it. “He has stolen thousands of naira from me to cripple my business and if I ask, he turns me into a punching bag.

“Your honour, he battered me one day such that I collapsed into the gutter. Each time he beat me, I end up in the hospital.

“As if those are not enough, he doesn’t want to know how our only child and I sustain our lives. Worst of all, he is jobless and does nothing about it,” Taiwo said. T

he President of the court, Mr Henric Agbaje, asked the couple to produce evidence to support their claims, and adjourned the case till Nov. 13 for judgment.

Angelina Jolie’s Childhood Nanny Claims she is Unfairly Demonising Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie’s former nanny has broken her silence to dramatically call on the actress to end her war with husband Brad Pitt.

Devastated Krisann Morel says she is deeply concerned that the star is demonising her ex and using her children as weapons against him – just like Jolie’s mother did when she was a kid.

Morel, 63, cared for Jolie during her formative years and was close friends with her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, before she died of cancer.
She said there are startling parallels between what is happening now and the star’s own troubled childhood when her mother cut off her famous father Jon Voight – leading to years of heartache and
estrangement.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Morel said:

 ‘I’m speaking out because I want to send a message to Angelina, who I care about very much.


I want to tell her, “Please don’t cut Brad out of the children’s lives. Don’t use the children as weapons in your divorce. And don’t demonize your husband”.
Because that is exactly what your mother did when she was breaking up with your father. And the result was you had a lonely and traumatic childhood. Why would you inflict the same tragedy on your kids?
Jolie’s parents, Marcheline Bertrand and Jon Voight split in 1977, just two years after Jolie was born. I am worried that Angie is repeating the past – repeating the same mistakes her mother made during her divorce – and I want to get this message across to her before it is too late.’

Grandmother and mother-of-one Morel opened up about 41-year-old Jolie’s troubling upbringing and how the vicious war that broke out between her mother and father still seems to affect her today.
She revealed that Bertrand could barely stand to look at her daughter when she was a baby because she looked so much like her cheating father, who ran off with a young drama student named Stacey Pickren.

And she said that the young star and her brother James Haven, 43 – raised by a coterie of nannies – were frequently used as weapons to attack their womanising dad.

Mary J. Blige’s Estranged Husband Demands almost $130K Per Month in Spousal Support

Mary J. Blige’s estranged husband, Martin Isaacs, is demanding a whole lot of money from her for a monthly spousal support as part of their divorce settlement.

Martin Isaacs who was Mary J’s manager filed for temporary spousal support, and according to the documents he filed, he says $129,319 per month is a reasonable amount to maintain his lifestyle.
His reason being that Mary J was the only breadwinner during their almost 13-year marriage and got him used to their lavish lifestyle. Adding that Mary J. earned between $1.5 to $5.1 million over the

last 2 years.

He said he hasn’t made any money since Mary fired him as her manager shortly after she filed for divorce. Even though the couple signed a Prep before they got married, Martin says it doesn’t count because he signed it without a lawyer.

He also said Mary J has given him $85k since they separated.

Banker Knifed Wife To Death With 124 Blows After She Asked For Divorce

A banker killed his wife by stabbing her 124 times with a knife and an axe, a jury has heard.

Sanjay Nijhawan, 46, was struggling to cope after quitting his highly paid job with Barclays, a court heard. The crisis came to a head when his wife Sonita, 38, asked for a divorce, a jury at Guildford Crown Court heard.

Nijhawan stabbed her repeatedly in the head and neck before slitting her throat.

He was found sitting beside her body by worried family members who came to their luxury, gated
property in Weybridge, Surrey.

Opening the case, prosecutor Sally O’Neill said his defence was expected to be that he had an abnormality of mental function at the time “which substantially impaired his ability to form a rational judgement or exercise self control.”

The jury heard that after he was arrested by police, Nijhawan told officers that he had become “deranged” and had suffered a nervous breakdown.

Ms O’Neill said: “The number and nature of her cuts make it clear that she was the victim of a fatal and sustained attack.

“She had a very large number of cut and stab injuries to her neck and head.

“Underneath her body was an axe. He (Nijhawan) was sitting on the kitchen floor next to her body repeatedly stabbing himself to the legs with a small knife.

“Sonita had 124 significant injuries to her body including 40 cut and blunt force injuries to her head, of which 18 were to the back of the head, 11 to the side and 10 to the left hand side of her skull.

“These were all likely to be caused by an axe.

“There were 25 stab wounds to left side of her neck, more likely to have been caused by a knife. The defendant was immediately taken St George’s Hospital in Tooting.”

The cause of death was neck and head injuries, said the prosecuter.

Ms O’Neill said Nijhawan made Google searches before the killing on how to commit suicide and on how to identify the “soft parts of a female human skull.”

The jury was told that family relatives rushed to the mansion home after Nijhawan made bizarre phone calls and sent text messages about keys to the house.

Ms O’Neill said the husband had taken away his wife’s mobile phone, even though she was on call 24-7 as a director of two care homes run by her family.

Jurors heard he claimed he took away the phone so his wife could not tell family members about the divorce discussion before a family event on the upcoming weekend.

The court also heard that police seized a note from Nijhawan which he wrote in hospital and which stated: “I would like to issue a statement immediately offering my severe remorse.

“The mindless act has lost the life of a beautiful and amazing woman.

“I have failed in my duty as a son-in-law and a brother.”

Ms O’Neill told jurors: “It seems that in the preceding months leading up to this event Sanjay Nijhawan began to suffer from stress and anxiety partly as a result of his job and he was finding it very difficult to cope.

“He also felt under financial pressure because of the move to the house although it is not clear exactly why this was as both of the family were wealthy.”

The trial continues.

In her divorce filing, she also asked the judge not to grant Isaacs any spousal support.

knot in 2014.

Brad Pitt’s Argument with Son Maddox Led to Angelina Jolie Filing for Divorce

TMZ reports:

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We’re told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We’re told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.

We’re also told the LAPD has the case … which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse … just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.

Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.

A source close to Brad tells TMZ, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him 

Mary J. Blige’s Estranged Husband Wants Spousal Support And Lawyer Fees

Mary J. Blige’s divorce from her manager and husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs has taken a turn for the complicated, with Isaacs financial demands coming to the light.

According to TMZ, Isaacs requested for spousal support and financial assistance for lawyer fees. The details were included in Kendu’s response to the singer’s divorce petition.

marriage but praised Kendu for helping her deal with some of her past deamons. “We met when I hated men. … After I met him, everything changed in my life,” she said to Parade in 2007. “He was the first person to ever challenge what I did: ‘Why are you drinking? Why do you hate yourself? You don’t need to be around people who tear you down. You’re beautiful, Mary.’ He was the first man to ever tell me that.”

Mary is currently prepping for her world tour .

Eddie Murphy’s Ex Wife Nicole Loses $10m Divorce Money To a Con Man

Nicole Murphy, the mother of Eddie Murphy’s five children, lost the $10million divorce settlement she received from Eddie to a con man.

According to The Jasmine Brand, the reality TV star entrusted the money she received from her ex husband in the care of her childhood friend, Troy Stratos, but he betrayed that trust and diverted her money.

Stratos has pleaded guilty and admitted Nicole, who he had known for 34 years, gave him the money to invest in a business overseas which he had promised would earn her high interest but instead, he diverted the sum.

The Jasmine Brand adds that the trial had been set for September 12 but was changed after a federal jury found him guilty of defrauding a Philadelphia investor group out of $11.25 million.

Here’s how it happened:

“The Philadelphia group was under the impression that it was buying pre-IPO Facebook shares from Carlos Slim, with Stratos, under the name of “Ken Davis,” serving as the Mexican billionaire’s agent. But investors claim they never received the shares, and funds wired for their purchase wound up being misspent by Stratos.”
Stratos will be sentenced on November 17 for both fraud charges.

Nicole and Eddie divorced in 2006.

In light of the public threats, false allegations, and attempts to slander my name and character, I am compelled to speak up. Because my nature is peaceful, I’ve been silent out of respect for all involved, and to maintain my privacy. However, I believe the truth must be heard, which is that I’ve never been violent or abusive towards any woman in my life. Such behaviour is abhorrent to me and fat from how I conduct myself. Moving forward, I will continue to focus on my family, friends, and music, and soon enough the entire truth shall come to light.”

Sincerely,

Russell Wilson’s Ex-wife Shades Ciara’s Engagement Ring

After Russell Wilson proposed to Ciara, his ex- wife, Ashton Wilson nee Meem, apparently threw some shade Ciara’s way when she found out about the engagement.
His ex, 27 year old Ashton Wilson changed her Twitter profile picture to an old photo of herself wearing the diamond engagement ring  that Russell Wilson gave to her.

Ciara’s huge engagement  ring is a 5 carat diamond stunner, while the one Russell gave Ashton in 2012 was an 8-carat rock, according to the blog Media Take Out.
Even though Ashton Wilson’s ring is bigger, Ciara’s has better quality according to highe end jelewer David Harris when he interviewed with Hollywood Life. He said:

“This is one incredible ring,”.“This brilliant cut solitaire is approximately 12 to 15 carats and looks to be a D through F colorless diamond, which means it’s a really good diamond.  I would estimate the center stone be worth between $2 and $2.5 million based on one which I recently sold to a very wealthy client.”

Russell Wilson and Ashton divorced in 2014 after two years of marriage. Rumors claim she had an affair with the then-Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate.

Hulk Hogan’s Ex-Wife, Linda Writes Him, Says ‘I HATE YOU’

Linda Hogan broke down as she read an emotional letter she penned to her ex, Hulk Hogan, telling him: ‘You single-handedly ruined our 25-year marriage.’

‘I want the world to know how I feel about him,’ she tearfully told Inside Edition’s Jim Moret. ‘I gave that man everything. I gave him everything that I had.’

She added that she will never be able to forgive him until he seriously apologizes to her and their children, Brooke and Nick.

 ‘I was honest, I was a good wife. I never cheated on him,’ she added.

In her letter, which she says she intends to send to her ex-husband, she adds: ‘You took me for granted and never appreciated me or our beautiful family… blaming me for your horrendous mistakes. It was NEVER about me. It was always about you and your narcissism.’

She added: ‘I hate you, but probably not as much as you must hate yourself, and until you can really apologize to me and to our children… I will never ever forgive you.’

Linda, 56, also said she believed her ex deserves nothing from his suit against Gawker, a media outlet he is suing for publishing his s3x tape with his then best friend’s wife.

The couple wed in 1983, but their marriage ended after she filed for divorce in 2007.

Angelina Jolie’s ‘Diary Confessions’ Leaks, Fires Nanny For Flirting With Brad Pitt Amid Rumors Of Divorce, Sex & Drugs

Angelina Jolie was recently rumored to have been “flirting nonstop” with her husband Brad Pitt’s young look-alike cameraman. Now a report by Radar Online claims that Jolie fired one of her children’s “gorgeous” nannies because she was caught flirting with the star’s husband.

The nanny started to have a close friendship with Pitt, after which Jolie began suspecting her, Radar Online reported. “Angie was happy with the team she had assembled and handpicked to be around her and the kids. Of course lots of people want to work for a famous movie star, but they put them through a very strict filtering process,” a source told the gossip website.

“Brad was going in and out of Cambodia as his schedule would allow. He is always well-liked by the staff and friendly with them, but it became obvious the nanny was flirting around him and being a little too friendly,” the insider added, according to Radar Online.

The 40-year-old noticed that the nanny was always near the pool at the same time Pitt would be there, according to the report. “Her paranoia grew even further when she saw him fresh out of the shower wrapped in just a towel, getting some juice while the nanny was also in the kitchen with a big smile on her face. That was the final straw for Angie,” the source revealed to Radar Online. “She confronted the nanny and a huge screaming match erupted. Of course, she didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger, and the nanny packed her things and was gone faster than you could imagine,” the insider added.

The A-list couple, together for over 10 years, has been fighting divorce rumors for some time now. However, they have been spotted together on several occasions, shunning reports about their marriage troubles.

Another rumor that 52-year-old Pitt was moving into a bachelor pad in London without informing Jolie was debunked. A source reportedly told OK! Magazine that Pitt is secretly shopping for his own house in England without informing Jolie. “Brad’s thinking time apart is exactly what they need,” the insider reportedly said.

Gossip Cop, the website which debunks celebrity rumors, had dismissed another Jolie-Pitt rumor, which claimed that the husband and wife were on the verge of breaking up over her alleged sex and drugs “diary confessions.” A National Enquirer report said that Pitt has been bothered by reminders of his wife’s past problems, including “heroin binges” and “kinky sex games.”

The 42-year-old grandson of Nelson Mandela, Mandla Mandela, is at the centre of controversy after he converted to Islam, and married for a fourth time. Here’s a brief look at his marital life:

He married Tando Mabunu-Mandela in 2004. They are reportedly still entangled in a bitter divorce. He got married to Anais Grimaud, in a traditional ceremony in 2010. Their marriage was annulled after reports that she had an affair with his younger brother.

He then married Mbali Makhathini in 2014, but the marriage was annulled by a court after his first wife opened charges of bigamy.

Wife Takes Revenge On Cheating Husband By Selling House While He Was Away

A cheating husband was shocked and in despair after returning from a business trip to find his wife had sold their house.
Builder Craig Arnolds returned home from New York to find the locks changed – and six students in his lounge.Wife Laura, aged 42, had packed her bags and gone.

She took the extreme measure after discovering an incriminating message on her partner’s iPhone.
44-year-old Craig  forgot his iPhone 6 when on a business trip to America.When the phone flashed an unknown number, suspicious Laura swooped. The steamy message was from an American woman who described the kind of hot reception Craig could expect in New York.It was then she hatched her revenge plot.

Laura told The Sunday Mercury:

“Things aren’t great between us at the moment.I could do it because my parents came up with the deposit for our home and when we struggled with the mortgage, they came in.”

Craig, who now lives in London, described the baffling scene that greeted him at the former family home.

 “All the lights were on and the TV was blaring,” “I remember thinking it was really out of character for Laura to be up past 11pm. I had no idea what on earth was going on.
“At this point I was seriously freaked out, jet lagged and frantic – I started banging on the door and shouting Laura’s name – but was greeted instead by what looked like a 21-year-old hippie.”

He added: ‘

I noticed all Laura’s furniture was gone, but the chairs and tables I’d inherited from my late father, plus my set of golf clubs and vintage radio – which Laura always hated – was sitting on the kitchen table in all its glory.“She’d included my most prized possessions in the ‘fixtures and fittings’. I was gutted. I still can’t get my head around how she did this in the space of a two week holiday.”

Last time I marry an Italian, that’s for sure.“I made a mistake and paid for it dearly.
“I was very annoyed at first but life is too short to dwell on these things and I made the decision that for the children’s sake, we should stop the hostilities there.
“Who knows, maybe by getting this out of her system will allow us to build on the existing amicable relationship?”

Married Mother Seduces Her Son With N50,000 In A Hotel

While we hear about incest between fathers and daughters on a daily basis, it seems this abominable act is also committed between mothers and sons, though in this case the mother drugged the son.

An Asaba Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Delta State last Friday dissolved an 18-year-old marriage over a sexual intercourse by a mother with her son.

According to the Punch, the 45-year-old Mrs. Nkulumenna Owefa admitted before the court that she seduced her son in a hotel in Abagana, Anambra State, after she offered him the sum of N50,000.

It was gathered during the proceedings of the court that the woman who sells trades at the popular
Ogbeonogonogo market, Asaba deceptively asked his son (name withheld) to accompany her to Abagana near Onitsha, Anambra State where she booked into an hotel against her initial plan of meeting with one of her business partners at her residence in Asaba.

The son, who testified in court on what transpired between him and the mother before Senior Magistrate, Sylvester Oboh, said he was called upon by his mother to accompany her somewhere where she had bought some materials for sale.

He said, “On our way to Abagana, somewhere around Toll Gate in Asaba, we were held in hold-up; I was with mum in her car and the glasses were wound up as the AC was on. So our conversation was not being heard by hawkers going about with their wares or other motorists.

“My mum told me that she was going to take over me as my father has taken over my sister and I thanked her, not knowing what she was up to. In Abagana, after a lengthy discussion with her friend, we retired into the hotel room, where my mum gave me a bottle of coke already opened and I felt weak when she now undressed me before putting my d**k into her private part.”

The husband, Mr. Owefa, who was in court with her daughter, Adlyn to seek the dissolution of their marriage told the court, “All I need is the dissolution of this marriage.

“My wife has committed the worst abomination and the only forgiveness I have for her is the dissolution of the marriage. My son remains my son because I know he was not seduced with ordinary hand.”

The Senior Magistrate (Oboh), having listened to both parties, granted the dissolution of the marriage, saying the man would take of the two children.

According to E! News, Khloe Kardashian and bf James Harden are still together. According to a close source:

“Khloe and James never broke up. He’s been so understanding and he knows that Khloe’s love for Lamar is deeper than what most people can understand,”

“He’s been very understanding and supportive. Lamar has a long road ahead of him and Khloe will always have the love she has for Lamar.

“He’s been great with me, and I’m just allowing everything to unfold,”If it’s ever too overwhelming [for him], then I understand that as well.”

Ex-Wife Of Russia’s Richest Man Vows To Fight For Half His £10BILLION Fortune

The spurned former wife at the centre of the world’s biggest divorce has laughed off her estranged husband’s claim that he is down to his last millions.

Vladimir Potanin told a court in Moscow that he has no assets, despite being listed by Forbes as Russia’s richest man worth £10billion.His scorned ex-wife Natalia, 53, to whom he was married for 30 years, blasted her former husband’s court claim that he is merely a millionaire. He ‘offered’ her £32million settlement – but she says he’s worth £10billion and wants half.

Natalia blasted:

 ‘Vladimir Potanin dumped, betrayed and humiliated me. He also decided to wipe every
kopek (penny) off our family money.

Natalia, who has three children with the Russian oligarch, is offering him the chance to settle out of court and away from the media glare, as long as he agrees to negotiate her demands for a half share of his alleged wealth of £10billion, to which she insists she is fully entitled.

Mining tycoon Potanin, 54, is fighting the financial claim by his wife of three decades, insisting he does not own the mega-assets she says are his.

Last month, a Moscow judge rejected Natalia’s demand to equally divide his investment company Interros International, and his 30 per cent stake in mining giant Norilsk Nickel, a which is worth an estimated £4.5billion for which Potanin is listed as CEO.

In her first exclusive interview since the ruling, Natalia flew to London to tell MailOnline she will battle for justice no matter how long it takes…

The couple met as poor students in the Communist era and had three children during their long marriage.

Petite and wearing immaculate Prada with understated but expensive jewellery, Natalia described the moment her ex-husband revealed that he had a second family, with mistress Katya, an employee 15 years his junior, who he has since married.

With new wife

When Pontanin dropped the bombshell in 2013, he told her that not only did he want a divorce, he demanded that it be backdated to 2007.

‘I thought this was some kind of a badly-worded tease, a joke. How else would you look at it?’ she said.’I sat with him at the end of 2013, and he was saying ‘Let’s divorce behindhand, so that the divorce and any settlement is dated to 2007’.

‘So imagine, year 2007 goes by, then 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and we’re living together all this time, and at the end of 2013 he says he wants the backdated divorce.”We certainly made no agreements that evening, I was too shocked.

‘I wasn’t prepared for it. As I understand now, he must have taken his time to get ready for this conversation, perhaps not even a day or month, but longer. But for me it was totally unexpected, it was a deep shock.

Now she believes this was a move to fix any settlement on his assets as they were in 2007, not at the moment they actually split.

‘He left that evening, leaving those papers, and he has not slept at home since then. He never came back. So the last memory of my husband was how he started the conversation, and how it got nowhere.

Natalia made clear she will appeal the Russian verdict given last month which she described as ‘odious’, and which has been seen as a major setback in her quest to become the world’s wealthiest ex-wife.

I find it extremely unpleasant to sit in court and hear about all the extramarital affairs which, it turned out, my husband had when we were together.’It’s exhausting, and if there is a way to avoid it, quickly and peacefully, I would certainly go for it.’But what my husband offered was for me to sign papers saying that I had no claims on assets, and that was it.’It happened in November 2013, which is when he suggested we divorce. This was the moment when we spoke for the last time.’

Both Pictured in 1977

Natalia said that since they separated, her husband has made no effort to contact their their two sons Ivan, 26, and Vasily, 16.The couple also have a daughter, Anastasia, 31.

 ‘I think he is totally irrational, aggressive and not reasonable. I struggle to explain it.’His social position, his public face has always been based on an image of a strong family man.’I trusted my husband completely. I believed him, I, well, I loved him. I realise this was wrong, in that to be blind in your belief in someone is wrong. But I was absolutely happy in the past.’I can’t understand what will come next. I am not broken, but I continue living in this situation and, whatever I do, it still dominates my life. I don’t have freedom.’

She shows a steely confidence that she will win in the end:

‘I want to show other women in a similar situation that we have got to keep fighting and not to give up, at least for the sake of our children,’ she said. ‘Yes, Vladimir Potanin and his lawyers keep winning court cases, but I don’t see it as their final victory.’There are thousands of women in Russia in a similar situation, ruthlessly dumped, often with newborn children.’Men allow themselves to treat women like something they possess and can throw away at the point when they get bored and want something new.

‘This has to stop. There are laws that protect women in Russia, but they don’t always work in reality.’

Khloe Kardashian Vows To Divorce Lamar If He Goes Back To Drugs

Khloe Kardashian is ready to relaunch divorce proceedings if Lamar Odom shows any signs of going back to the world of drugs .According to TMZ, Khloe is annoyed by people on social media who are calling her naive for dropping the divorce.

We’re told Khloe knows better than anyone about Lamar’s battle with drugs. Feelings aside, she’s game to drop the divorce partly because Lamar has no one else in his life to help him recover. And, by the way, we’re told Lamar is on the Kardashian health insurance policy and he needs to stay on.

Lamar’s medical bills will total in the many millions, and our sources say he doesn’t have the financial wherewithal to handle it on his own.
It’s murky, because if this were just about health insurance, Khloe could easily buy it for him and go through with the divorce.
Bottom line … if he goes back to drugs, she’s gone.

Ways To Save Yourself The Headache Of Divorce By Not Marrying These Type Of Men

1. He puts you down in front of friends and family. 

He can’t wait to tell all your friends about how you completely butchered the pronunciation of “cache” — and brags about his Ivy League education while gently chiding you about your state school degree. Initially, you might laugh it off as no big deal, but as marriage therapist Kristina Fecik points out, do you really want to be in a serious relationship with someone who thinks it’s OK to mock you?

“It’s especially bad if you tell him that it bothers you and he continues, dismissing your feelings of embarrassment,” the Fort Lauderdale-based therapist said. “Well-known marriage researcher John Gottman has found that contempt — any statement or non-verbal behavior that puts you on a higher plane than your partner — is the single best predictor of divorce.”

2. You’re polar opposites. 

Opposites attract but only up to a point. If you’re a left-leaning introvert who lives for takeout-and-Netflix weekends and he’s an extroverted Republican who can’t pass up a party invite, you’re going to butt heads sooner than later, said Marina Sbrochi, a dating expert and the author of Stop Looking for a Husband: Find the Love of Your Life.

“Get ready for battle around month five,” she said. “It might be fun for the social butterfly to enjoy having his homebody all to himself… until his friends come calling and endless invitations for social events start pouring in. Then he’ll find you boring. The truth is, if you don’t have any common ground, you don’t have any common ground to have a long-lasting relationship.”

3. He’s resentful of your friends, family and outside interests. 

At first, you may find it flattering that he wants to spend all his time with you. But it’s a red flag if he goes overboard and picks a fight every time you choose family and friends (or your hobbies) over him, said Alison Patton, a San Diego-based divorce attorney and mediator.

“You could be dating a controlling narcissist,” she said. “This type make you feel special and pampered during the dating phase — gifts, outings and trips for two — but underneath it all is a need to be the center of your world all the time. Throughout your marriage he will undermine your attempts to have outside relationships and your own interests.”

4. Your friends and family want nothing to do with him. 

Your friends and family were never going to be as head-over-heels in love with your S.O. as you are. But if the majority of them think there’s something seriously wrong with your Mr. Right, you may want to stop and take notice, said Patton.

“Our own inability to see the truth about someone while dating is the reason the divorce rate is so high,” she said. ” Often your friends and family do know best.  In the words of H. Jackson Brown, Jr., ‘Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 90 percent of your happiness or misery.'”

5. There’s no sexual chemistry between you and him. 

The hot and heavy, we-can’t-keep-our-hands-off each-other phase isn’t going to last forever; after all, your desire for your spouse ebbs and flows through the years. But if there’s not even a sexual spark in the beginning, it should give you reason for pause, said Virginia Gilbert, a Los Angeles-based marriage and family therapist.

“You tell yourself that’s OK because he’s a ‘nice guy’ and you’re looking for stability, and you think he can provide it,” she said, “But while you don’t need to marry Mr. Best Sex Ever, you do need to walk down the aisle with a guy who turns you on. Most couples have to work to keep sex exciting over the long haul, but you won’t be able to do that if you don’t have a strong foundation of mutual sexual attraction and desire to begin with.”

6. He’s really, really ridiculously good looking — and that’s about it. 

He may look like a young Johnny Depp but if there’s no depth there, you’re probably going to get bored with him, Sbrochi said.

“I’ve been down this road and it does not end well,” she instead. “Instantly you are imagining how amazing you would look together walking down the aisle — but on each date you find that it’s like pulling teeth to even get a sentence out of Mr. McDreamy. When he finally does talk, it’s lacking substance and depth. Face facts: his good looks can only take him so far.”

7. You’re more invested in sharing a wedding day with him than sharing a life. 

Don’t allow yourself to fall for the good-on-paper type without digging deeper to see if you’re compatible. And certainly don’t cast aside your doubts just because your biological clock is ticking, said Fecik.

“It’s common to get caught up in the fantasy of the wedding day — or see a guy as a decent candidate for a husband just because you’re baby-ready,” she said. “But take the time to get to know your partner before you get to know the wedding planner. Don’t wait to discuss the important issues eight years later, when you and your hubby are on a marriage therapist’s couch.”

Khloe Kardashian Dumped James Harden By Text After Calling Off Lamar Divorce

When Khloe Kardashian called off her divorce to Lamar Odom on Oct. 21, she almost instantly called it quits with her boyfriend, James Harden. In a bold move, Khloe decided to dump James with nothing but a short text! Get the EXCLUSIVE details on what Khloe said below!

After spending more than a week supporting Lamar Odom, 35, while he has been in the hospital for an alleged drug overdose, Khloe Kardashian, 31, decided to call off their divorce and give marriage one more try. But that meant she had to end things with her NBA star boyfriend, James Harden, 26. Still at Lamar’s bedside in Los Angeles, Khloe dumped James in a pretty harsh way: via text!

“James has yet to speak to Khloe by phone after he heard, one the news no less, that she had called off her divorce with Lamar,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The only thing he’s gotten from Khloe in the last 24-hours was a text that said ‘I’m sorry.’ That’s it. He didn’t even respond.”

Ouch! It’s never fun to be the one getting dumped, but it sounds like Khloe didn’t even give James any kind of explanation. Considering Khloe has been by Lamar’s side since he was admitted to the hospital, though, James probably has a pretty good idea of why she dumped him — especially now that their divorce has been called off. Plus, another source told us that while Khloe’s focus has been on Lamar, James has been thinking about other things anyway!

 

“He is OK with it because he is focused specifically on a NBA Championship, MVP of the league and how to spend his $200 million from Adidas. His life is alright,” the source said. “He is not going to let heartbreak ruin all the good he has in his life. He lives by the code — everything happens for a reason. So don’t feel bad for him.”

It sounds like James is going to be just fine! Besides, as soon as news broke that Khloe and Lamar were calling off their divorce, James posted an Instagram video that totally seemed to be shading Khloe, so he could already be well on his way to getting over Khloe. As harsh as a short “I’m sorry” may sound, maybe it was all James needed!

“Lamar Has Sworn Never To Do Drugs Anymore, That’s Why I Took Him Back” – Khloe K

According to a report by TMZ, Khloe Kardashian has taken her estranged husband back and called off their divorce after he promised her he would never do drugs again after hitting rock bottom.

Lamar who is now talking, reportedly told Khloe over the weekend he knew he cheated death, and was ‘done with drugs.’ He also thanked her for coming to Vegas and supporting him, told her he loved her and wanted another chance with her. Khloe, who has always said she still loved Lamar, took him back, called off their divorce and promised to nurse him back to health. Their divorce was dismissed yesterday.

Arsene Wenger and wife split, Couple file for divorce

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and wife Annie have reportedly separated after their marriage collapsed.

 

According to The Sun, Arsene and Annie filed separation papers at a family court in Paris, France.

 

Rumors of a split had been swirling around the couple, who have been married since 2010.

 

Arsene and Annie have an 18-year old daughter, Leah, and filed for “separation of bodies” judgement, meaning they are free to see other people.

 

A French legal expert told The Sun: “This is a legal separation, which means that the couple are not legally obliged to live together, and they can have separate lives, and no longer had intimate relations.

 

“He will have to still keep his responsibilities to look after the family.

 

“If the judgment is not overturned within two years, a divorce will be automatically granted.

 

“This is something which is not often done anymore, often Catholic families use this, as they are reluctant to get a divorce, but legally there is little difference.”

 

In 2008, Wenger had previously spoken about how being manager of a top European club took a stress on his marriage.

‘In my job I travel, but the problem is not so much the quantity of time you spend with your family, it is the quality,’ admitted Wenger.

 

‘That’s where this job is more damaging. You do not always give them the quality they deserve when you are at home because you are thinking of the next game.’

Divorce Rumours Surround The Obamas

The rumors that Barack and Michelle Obama’s marriage is on the rocks are back, and this time they carry an added piece of gossip.

According to the National Enquirer, Michelle is unhappy with her husband because he has been getting his flirt on… with Caroline Kennedy. “He immediately started flirting up a storm, while Michelle could barely keep her temper in check. Even though both their families were there, it was really intense. At one point later, Barack ‘jokingly’ suggested to Caroline that the two go skinny-dipping! While they didn’t end up swimming nude, Barack and Caroline did sneak off to talk politics over lunch and swam in the ocean with the rest of the group. Before the day was over, Michelle was seething and furious. After they returned to their rented compound, she lit into Barack and read him the riot act,” said a source.

A man named Salau Kehinde who was accused of beating his wife told a Customary Court in Ikorodu, Lagos that he indeed physically abuses his wife whenever she refuses to have sex with him.

His wife, Shakirat approached the court seeking for dissolution of their 10-year old marriage that has produced two children. This was because of his continuous assault anytime she returned from work and refused to have sex because she was either too tired or for other reasons.

According to a report by Vanguard, the woman requested that the court dissolve their marriage and grant her custody of the children. Reacting to the wife’s accusation, Kehinde accepted the claim that he used to beat her whenever she denied him sex and if she came home late from her trading business.

He said, “She refuses to cook for me when she is pregnant. She also said I should look for another wife.”

He however promised to stop beating or threatening her and will take her back if she wants to stay with him. The Court adjourned the case for possible reconciliation.

Megan Fox And Hubby Call It Quits After 11 Years Together And You Won’t Believe Why

Megan Fox and her husband of 5 years, Brian Austin Green, have separated after 11 years together a source now tells E! News.
The actors who began dating in 2004 and got married in 2010, reportedly decided to take some time apart “six months ago,” according to a source who spoke to Us Weekly. An insider told the tabloid that “things had been rocky” between the actors, who met on the set of the ABC sitcom “Hope & Faith.”
The parents of 2 young boys, Noah and Bodhi, who are 2 years old and 18 months respectively are still choosing to remain friends despite the end of their relationship. The source told US Weekly: “They’re on friendly terms for the sake of the kids. They just want to do their own things.

Similarly, a source tells People, “They will always love each other very much and are devoted to their kids. Anything could happen in the future, but for now they’ve decided it’s best to take some time apart.”

 
Follow the jump to see the full story + why they are calling it quits and how the general public is responding to their reason:

Megan and Brian have always been off and on as they got engaged in 2006, called it off in 2009, and got engaged a second time in 2010. Days after announcing their plans to marry, the two got married in Hawaii, their favorite vacation destination. In 2012, Megan gushed about marriage in a Cosmopolitan cover story. “We’ve had obstacles, and we’ve overcome them. I truly feel like he’s my soul mate,” she said of her husband. “I don’t want to sound corny or cliché, but I do believe we are destined to live this part of our lives together.” The next year, she told Marie Claire U.K., “We are tolerant of each other and we try to be patient with each other, and I don’t try to turn him into me and he knows not to try to turn me into him.”
So, what went wrong in the relationship?
Apparently, “They fight about her career,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He would prefer she focus on the family more than being obsessed with getting roles.”

Many fans and feminists have already began bashing Brian insisting that a woman wanting to pursue a career is not enough reason to call off a marriage with 2 kids.

Pastor Seeks Divorce After 15 Years Of Marriage Over Nagging

A pastor, Tunde Adekunle, on Monday urged an Akure Customary Court to dissolve his 15 year-old marriage to his wife, Agbeke for alleged frequent nagging.

Adekunle, founder of Christ Living Church, Owo, Ondo State, said that his wife was hell-bent in making life unbearable for him.

The cleric also told the court that some of the scars on his body were caused by the constant fisticuffs between them, adding that there was no more affection existing in the marriage.

He said that the respondent was a “disgrace to his pastoral calling’’, noting that she had once torn his cloth in front of his congregation when he was preaching.

Agbeke, in her response, denied the allegations, but said that she was ready to part with the petitioner.

He said that the union had produced four children.

She accused her husband of being promiscuous, night crawling, failure to carrying out marital responsibilities of providing for the house and the upkeep and education of the children.

The President of the court, Mrs Olayinka Falodun, in her ruling urged the petitioner to take care of the welfare of the children.

Man Granted Divorce Over Wife’s Late Meals

A Nigerian court granted a 57-year-old man a divorce after hearing that his wife often brought his meals to him too late in the evening.

 A court in Lagos heard that Olufade Adekoya was at the end of his tether after Olusola, his spouse of 25 years, refused to serve him when he demanded.

“My wife had failed in her matrimonial obligations. She does not prepare my food on time and I have warned her several times, but she would not listen to me,” he was quoted as saying.

“There is no point in harbouring a wife that makes me hungry. I am totally fed up,” Adekoya told the hearing, for which the paper gave no date.

His wife denied the alleged dereliction, accusing her husband of plotting to take another wife.

But court president Olu Adebiyi reportedly dissolved the unhappy union, concluding: “The court had tried several times to reconcile their differences, but all efforts proved abortive.”

How To Know A Marriage Is Headed Towards Divorce (MUST READ)

1. The bride had pre-wedding jitters.

If the future Mrs. has cold feet, the couple’s risk of divorce more than doubles, according to a study published in the Journal of Family Psychology. The good news? A groom with “I do” doubts has almost no impact on the future of the marriage.

2. The couple got married young — or after age 32.

Sure, conventional wisdom holds that getting married too early isn’t the best bet for a lasting union. “I often see couples in their 40s in counseling who got married too young and didn’t have experience with other partners or want different things now,” says Rachel Sussman, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert. “Because there’s a very good chance that in 10 or 15 years, you’re going to be a very different person—and you should be.”

But a new study says that after age 32, a couple’s risk of divorce increases by 5% each year they wait to wed. Sussman attributes this to entrenched independence and a need for space.

3. A family has two daughters. 

Sadly, it ups your chances to 43%. And even just having one daughter makes you 5% more likely to split, according to Columbia University economist Kristin Mammen. Parents with two sons, in contrast, face a nearly 37% risk.  “We think it happens because fathers get more invested in family life when they have boys,” Stephanie Coontz, author of Marriage, a History and director of research for the Council on Contemporary Families, told The Daily Beast.

4. Divorce runs in the family, so to speak.

If your parents divorced, you’re at least 40% more likely to do the same. But if they got remarried, you have a staggering 91% likelihood of getting divorced.

5. A challenging child challenges a marriage.

Parents who deal with a child’s ADHD diagnosis are nearly 23% more likely to divorce before the child turns 8.

6. Debt.

Money woes are an obvious marital stressor. Not only do many divorce risk factors correlate to poverty, but marital happiness dramatically decreases as couples don’t pay off their debts or take on new ones. And when one person is the big spender, according to one study, divorce can be 45% more likely. (Only extramarital affairs and substance abuse were stronger predictors!)

“There can be a problem when one partner works or just has a significantly bigger salary, and the other spends an exorbitant amount of money. Fighting over the Amex bill every month is just a dumb fight to have. They’ve got to be on the same page, and I think setting a budget is key,” explains Sussman.

7.  The groom frowned in his childhood snapshots.

In two separate studies, psychologists evaluated peoples’ childhood and yearbook photos and then evaluated their current marital health. Their findings? People who frown in photos are five times more likely to divorce than people who smile. (Yes, this one’s especially, well, far-fetched.)

8. One partner smokes—but the other doesn’t. 

When only one person in a relationship smokes, they’re 75% to 91% more likely to split than smokers who are married to another smoker. Why? “Different values and lifestyles can be problematic,” says Sussman.

9. The family’s first child was born less than 8 months after the wedding.

So, a shotgun ceremony is intuitively not the best way to start your union. But did you know it makes you 24% more likely to call it quits?

10. The couple shacked up before marriage.

Sure, cohabitation has been credited for decreasing the number of divorces overall. (One theory is that because couples who might otherwise divorce test the waters and fizzle beforehand, the couples who domarry are more committed.). But it’s still not necessarily helpful once you do wed: Multiple studies say living together pre-nuptials gives couples about a 12% higher probability that their marriage will fail.

11. One partner is a nurse.

Yes, certain occupations have higher divorce rates—and not just police and military personnel. Dancers and choreographers have a 43% divorce rate, according to a 2009 study in the Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology. Bartenders split from a spouse 38% of the time, while nursing, psychiatric, and home health aides face an almost 29% divorce rate.

12. You live in Nevada. Or Maine.

While much has been made of “red states” vs. “blue states” and marital trends, it’s not so simple. Some states have younger ages of marriage, lower incomes, and other demographic factors that contribute to divorce risk. But Nevada residents can probably just thank Las Vegas for their 14.6% rate of divorced people. Maine is second with 14.2%; Oklahoma trails at 13.5%. New York, in contrast, may only have 8.8% divorced residents, but it also has one of the lowest number of married residents. To explain, some researchers say that you’re more likely to get divorced in most “red states”—but only because you’re alsomore likely to get married there.

13. The wife makes more money than the husband.

Marriages where spouses earn roughly the same amount are more at prone to divorce than those where the wife earns less, according to a Swiss study of U.S. couples. And if the wife makes 60% or more of the family income, the risk of divorce is double that of couples where she doesn’t work at all.

14. Or she’s older than him.

Unfortunately, women who are one to three years older than their husbands are 53% more likely to end their marriage. According to the Australian paper, age disparities either way are associated with higher risk, especially if the man is younger. The study suggests it may be “due to differences in values
associated with birth control, or marital strain caused by power imbalances within the union.”

15. Someone thinks they’re always right.

Think you’re smarter than your spouse? By far, the biggest predictors of divorce are found in couples’ attitudes to each other. Famed researcher John Gottman claims to be able to predict a couple’s chances with 93% accuracy, based on four key traits which include being defensive and constant criticism. But he says the “kiss of death,” is contempt and seeing your partner as beneath you.

“It’s constant anger and disgust, passive-aggressive digs, eye-rolling, and yelling at your partner,” says Sussman. “When couples do that in a session, I say the research shows that if you keep doing that, there’s a really good chance you’re going to get divorced.”

No More Bride Price Refund After Divorce In Uganda

In Uganda, as in many other countries such as China, India, and Nigeria—it is customary for the groom to give money or property to the bride’s family as a token of goodwill before marriage. This dowry is called a bride price in Uganda. But what happens if you get divorced?

Uganda’s highest court has now ruled that it is unconstitutional for men to ask for a refund on the bride price upon divorce in a “customary marriage,” which is one takes place under traditional law. The court ruled that refunding bride prices infringes on the rights of women to divorce, instead making it seem as if they are things to be bought and sold.

It was the MIFUMI Project—a women’s rights organization based in Uganda—that brought the case before the court. The organization argued that allowing men to ask for a mandatory refund from the bride’s family implies that women are property, and that women in abusive relationships seeking a divorce are likely to be trapped if they have no funds to pay back the bride price.

Gwen Stefani To Divorce Husband

Singer Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from rockstar husband Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage, several news reports said on Monday. In her divorce petition, Stefani, 45, cited irreconcilable differences and asked for joint custody of the couple’s three children, 9-year-old Kingston, 6-year-old Zuma and 1-year-old Apollo.

Rossdale, 49, filed his response at the same time and also asked for joint custody, TMZ reported. Neither Stefani nor Rossdale’s attorneys immediately responded to emails seeking comment.

“While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment,” the couple told the website in a statement.

Divorce Update: Emeka Ike’s Wife Breaks Down In Court, Says Dissolve Our Marriage Now

Emeka Ike’s Wife is not a happy woman at the moment. The lady who was yesterday in court in continuation of the suit she had filed seeking to divorce her husband is unhappy and in pains. A reporter with The Nation who was in court yesterday reports the court outcome below;

Ace Actor Emeka Ike yesterday prayed the Lagos Island Customary Court not to dissolve his marriage, saying he still loves his wife, Emma. Emma had gone to court, seeking dissolution of their 12-year-old marriage.

Emeka, represented by his counsel, Abdul’Hakeem Labi-Lawal, said his client has not appeared in court because he is ill.

“My client is ill but I will try my best possible he comes on the next adjourned date. We indulge the court to give us six months from this day to see if there is possibility of settlement between the couple,” he said.

But Mrs Ike said six months was too long adding that the respondent had two years to reconcile with her but he didn’t.

She said: “The last time I wanted to speak with our children, it was my mother-in-law who

picked the call and asked if I had read Exodus 21 which says that if I go, I shouldn’t return.”

The court’s President, Chief Awos Awosola, said the court could only grant two weeks.

He said: “I am expecting Emeka Ike in this court if he really wants settlement.”

Awosola adjourned the matter till August 12 for further hearing.

After the court rose, Mrs Ike told The Nation that she wasn’t ready to return to her husband. “Over two years since I left the house, he never taught of reconciliation. He had every opportunity to ask me to return but he didn’t. So why now?”she asked.

Mrs Ike said her husband took her last two children from her when she was going for her mother’s burial in February.

“He promised to bring them to me immediately I returned from my mother’s burial but he didn’t. Even when he didn’t allow me access to see our children, I spoke with them on several occasions but now, he doesn’t allow me anymore. My children are now against me, she said.

Mrs Ike said she left her matrimonial home because she could no longer bear being tortured anymore.

“If I was still with him, I may not survive. I was 19-year old when I met him and he was the one who deflowered me. I see no reason I shouldn’t be treated with utmost respect.

“Due to physical torture, my health has been affected. There was even a time I thought I had breast cancer because I felt a lump on one part of my breast.” Mrs Ike said.

She said things became worse last Sunday when she called her husband to speak with their children.

In tears, Mrs Ike said:”I almost went mad when my first son told me on phone that if I truly loved them, I wouldn’t have abandoned them. Even my seven-year-old son whose day wouldn’t be complete without seeing me said he doesn’t love me. I love my children. I miss my children. I never abandoned them. I am in pain. They don’t have any other mother. I really need my children. I am a good woman; I endured so many things as his wife.”

The union produced four children between ages 4 and 13.

There was also a day I was feeding our last child with tea, my husband, out of anger took the tea and poured it on my head.”

She also explained how the couple’s school project failed on account of Emeka not allowing her
manage it. “I even persuaded his sister to bring four of her children to our school without paying a dime but instead of showing appreciation, she said I was a lavish spender and that was how I stopped being in charge of his school.”

“Each time we fight, he calls me a witch saying whenever he intends to start a project and he informs me it eventually fails. He also said if he hadn’t married me, I would have become a prostitute. Since I left, he doesn’t allow me to speak with our first two children asking me to come home if I really want to see them. Even when I was in with him, he leaves home for months on the pretext of different appointments. I can’t face all this anymore. I need help,” she said.

The case has been adjourned until July 22, 2015.

Sometimes It Can Be Morally Necessary For Parents To Separate – Pope Francis

Pope Francis says it may be “morally necessary” for some troubled families to split up so that the weaker partner or the children can be protected. He said this today June 24th while addressing Catholic faithfuls ahead of a global meeting on family life in October. He said;

“There are cases in which separation is inevitable. Sometimes, it can even be morally necessary, when it’s about shielding the weaker spouse or young children from the more serious wounds caused by intimidation and violence, humiliation and exploitation”

He went on to say that after separations, it is important that the couple is counseled so that the ‘child does not become daddy or mummy’s hostage”. He noted that there are many families with ‘irregular situations’ in the world.

I Pursued Kanye After My Divorce- Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian says there was an instant attraction between her Kanye West when they first met years ago.

Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush sat down exclusively with the reality star, who said she was “always attracted” to the rapper, long before he became her husband.

‘When I first met him, we worked on a project together and there was definitely a spark, but we were in other relationships and we kept our distance,” she said. “We stayed in touch here and there and then when he wasn’t in relationships, you know, it’s just our timing would always not really coincide.

“And then, I think it was six months after I was newly single in like 2012, I was like why not? Like, what am I waiting for?” she continued.

It was actually Kim who pursued Kanye after her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries ended.

“I called [Kanye] because I’m sure it was really hurtful that I got married and, even though it’s not like we communicated all the time, I knew what he was thinking. So I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single again,” she explained. “He didn’t, and so I called him and I said, ‘Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and ‘I told you so,’ something?’ And then – he’s always been a good friend to me, like, we’ve always been there for each other – then he invited me to a fashion show of his in Paris and I went, and then the magic happened.”

Having come out of a very public divorce, Kim was initially hesitant to start a new relationship. “But then in my head I was like, ‘You know what? Screw it. Like, this is probably what I’ve been waiting for, it’s been in front of my face,'” she said.

The couple is coming up on their 1-year wedding anniversary, and Kim said Kanye’s confidence has inspired her to believe in herself.

“He’s super confident and I think in my career and in life he’s given me so much confidence,” she said. “I handle things differently. Like in business, like I go into something where before I might have been a little bit timid and I’m a little bit calmer, and I go in like, ‘No, guys, this is what I want.'”

I Hope Patience Will Not Divorce Me – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed fear and uncertainty as to what becomes of his marriage to Dame Patience due to his acceptance of defeat at the just concluded poll.

Vanguard reports that the president said this, while ruminating aloud on the next phase of his life during a thanksgiving and farewell service in his honour at the Cathedral Church of the Advent Life-Camp, Gwarinpa, Abuja.

The president who will be handing over to the president elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, come May 29 used as an example, the former South African Apartheid leader, F.W de Klerk whose wife divorced him for ending minority rule in South Africa.

He said: “I believe there are reasons for everything. Some hard decisions have their own cost. That I have ran the government this way that stabilized certain things, the electoral process and other things that brought stability into this country. They were very costly decisions which I must be ready to pay for.

“Some people come to me and say this or that person, is he not your friend? Is it not your government that this person benefited from? But this is what the person is saying. But I used to say, worse statements will come. If you take certain decisions, you should know that those close to you will even abandon you at some point. And I tell them that more of my so-called friends will disappear. When F.W de Klerk took the decision to abolish minority rule in RSA, even his wife divorced him. I hope my wife will not divorce me. But that is the only decision that has made RSA to still remain a global player. If we still had minority rule there, by this time, nobody will be talking about RSA…”

Divorce Drama: I Can’t Cope With His Big Manhood- Wife Tells Court

There was laughter at the Sharia Court, Samaru, Gusau, Zamfara State, during the week, when a housewife, Aisha Dannupawa, asked the court to dissolve her one-week marriage to her husband, Ali Maizinari, because she could not bear the size of his joystick.

When the case came up, the woman told the court that she married her husband after her first marriage failed.

The mother of three revealed that before she packed into her husband’s house, as the tradition demanded, she was invited into his parents house.

She told the court that “when he came, we had sex but the experience was a nightmare. Instead of enjoying the sex, it turned out to be something else because his joystick was too big,” she told
the court.

She also told the court that after the experience, she took some medication, which was given to her by her mother.

“I told my mother the experience but she told me to endure and that with time, I will be able to cope. She then gave me some drugs,’’ she added.

According to her, “two days later when he came to visit me, we had sex again, but the experience was too much to bear. It was then I knew that I coulld not continue with the marriage because of the size of his joystick.’’

The husband, Maizinari, did not deny what his wife said. He told the court that he was willing to divorce her but that she should pay back the dowry and all that he spent on her during the courtship.

When he was asked to state the amount, Maizinari disclosed that what he expected from her was N60,000.

President of the court, Alhaji Mamman Shinkafi, told the couple to try reconciliation

Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey Divorce Details

Details emerged during the weekend regarding the prenuptial agreement between divorcing entertainers Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon.

The document, said TMZ.com, specifies that five-time Grammy Award-winning singer Carey, 45, is worth $150 million and that singer-actor and “America’s Got Talent” host Cannon, 34, came into their 2008 marriage with less than $500,000. He has since earned millions of dollars independent of his estranged wife. TMZ said the document also contained a confidentiality clause, with a $250,000 penalty for Cannon should he violate it, and a $500,000 penalty for Carey.

Cannon had quietly filed divorce papers on Dec. 12 and the news did not become public until Friday, said TMZ.

Cannon reportedly had confirmed rumors of a pending divorce on Aug. 21, when the syndicated entertainment-news show “The Insider” quoted him saying, “There is trouble in paradise . . . We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”

He denied this in a series of tweets on Sept. 3, writing that, “Because my family & I haven’t been forthcoming with personal information, people are quick to paint negative pictures and spread rumours. For the record I NEVER have, nor will I make a statement regarding my marriage,” adding that, ” ‘Trouble in Paradise’ is the dumbest phrase I’ve ever heard!”

Details into Kim and Kanye’s Divorce “Talks”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce is coming and Kim’s nasty Thanksgiving Twitter message implicitly excluding Kanye from her family while he was with his boyfriends in Paris shows the marriage is on it’s last legs. Most people are with family on Thanksgiving, or they make an attempt to be with family or loved ones. Not the case with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, however, as the couple adds more fuel to the divorce rumors circulating. Not only do these two have the money and means to be together, but they are certainly able to manipulate their schedules so that they are able to make the time to share the family holiday with one another.

In fact, not only were the two apart for Thanksgiving, Kim made it very clear that Kanye is the outsider now as she quietly makes plans for a future without the rapper. Kim and North were at Khloe’s while Kanye was in his favorite place…Paris. Kim tweeted, “Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful to have spent the day with my whole family over at Khloe’s house today! Khloe cooked so much yummy food!” Notice the words “whole family” in that post? No mention of her missing hubby, then a very clear point made about who Kim considers her family. I guess that whole Kanye/daughter/marriage thing doesn’t constitute a “family” in Kim’s eyes. Kim knew she was sending a very clear message to fans when sending that tweet.

It wasn’t just Kim who made the decision to be apart. Kanye has been complaining about Kris nonstop to Kim and she cannot take much more. He criticizes Kim for still letting Kris Jenner run the show, claiming she has too much power. Kim needs Kris in her corner, however, because Kris will help with damage control after the divorce. Kanye wasn’t too excited about being with Kris and the family, so he went to his favorite retreat—Paris—to be with friends. No concert, no paid obligation. He was eating dinner in a restaurant with friends in Paris on Thanksgiving. Of course, if the couple has the means to fly to one another to be together if they’d have wanted to, but that simply was not the case. Kim didn’t want to be in Paris and was not willing to budge. Kanye, on the other hand, purposely fled to Paris after learning of Kim kardashian’s dalliances in Dubai after being caught with Tyrese Gibson. He didn’t want to be around and insisted he wanted some space. Though he though Kim may follow, she opted to stay with her “whole family.”

While the “friends” Kanye shared the special holiday with have not been disclosed, many believe one guest in attendance was Kanye’s reported secret lover, designer Riccardo Tisci. Kanye has long battled rumors of being gay and having had a sexual relationship with Tisci. The fact that the two wore matching shirts to Tisci’s recent 40thbirthday party, may be another telling sign that the two are a little too close for comfort. How many heterosexual men do you know who plan to wear matching shirts to a birthday party? A little odd.

After the Kim and Tyrese encounter, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian each talking to their exes,  Kim’s visit to divorce attorney Laura Wasser, and now spending Thanksgiving apart—it is only a matter of time before these two split for good.

Kris Jenner Finally Files for Divorce

Kris_Jenner_Bruce_Jenner_divorce

Kris Jenner is ending her 22-year marriage to 1976 men’s decathlon Olympic gold medalist, Bruce Jenner.

Court filings say he and Kris Jenner separated on June 1. The filings do not provide any additional details or how the former couple will split their assets.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” matriarch filed for divorce on Monday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.

The pair’s relationship and its troubles have been featured prominently on the reality show that focuses heavily on Kris Jenner’s daughters from a previous marriage, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian.

The women and their brother Rob were born during Kris Jenner’s previous marriage to Los Angeles attorney Robert Kardashian, who she divorced in 1991. The divorce petition seeks joint custody of 17-year-old Kylie Jenner.

The divorce was first reported by celebrity website RadarOnline.com.

Chris Oyakhilome’s wife finally files for divorce in London Court

        After many  months of speculation over the marriage crisis between Christ Embassy’s Pastor, Chris Oyakhilome and wife, a new report claims the latter has now filed for a divorce in a London court.

images (22)

In an exclusive report published , the wife is seeking a divorce on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour” and “adultery”.

She allegedly outlined several allegations against the Pastor which cannot be published for legal reasons.

The divorce case, with Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, a full-service law firm with expertise in commercial law and a strong consumer focus in family, wills and estate, personal injury law and medical negligence.

According to the online portal, Pastor Chris had been making efforts to avoid divorce in the hope that the wife would eventually have a change of mind, however, Decree nissi was served on the charismatic pastor in his hotel room during a recent visit to the UK.

Decree nissi, in legal terms, is like a yellow card in a football match which is a precursor to a red card (“decree absolute”) if no new evidence is provided to stall proceedings.

Church insiders said Oyakhilome had been hoping for rapprochement, but he was left with no option than to receive the papers when the lawyers cornered him at his hotel in London. The decree absolute, which will effectively end the marriage, is expected to be issued soon while terms of the divorce will be worked out by the lawyers on both sides.

Anita recently wanted to go public with the details of her allegations against the husband but reached an informal agreement to sheathe her sword in the interest of the church Recall that some church members had sometime in May 10, 2014 launched a facebook campaign, asking: “Where is Rev. Anita Oyakhilome?”

They said Pastor Chris and Rev. Anita must unite “for the sake of the gospel, the church and their two beautiful daughters”. They quoted Malachi 2:16 in the Message Bible: “I hate divorce, says the God of Israel.”

The facebook page, which has over 3,300 “likes”, was opened with a stated mission: “This is a Call to Prayer for all believers who understand God’s heart concerning marriage and a Call to Action by Pst. Chris. #DoWhatYouPreach”.

Officials of the church quickly moved to deny any rift between the pastor couple. One official, Kenneth Achumasara, told the media last June thus: “I can tell you authoritatively that there is no issue between Pastor Chris and his wife, Anita… If you go to the UK now, you will see her along with the kids. She is still with him and there is no issue between them. I have been with him for 22 years and the Pastor Chris I know cannot even utter such words as reported. He will never address such a gathering. She will soon be in Nigeria for a programme and I will definitely invite you to have access to her.”

Oyakhilome is the President of Believers’ Love World Inc, the registered name of the Christian ministry, while his wife is the Vice President.
