Nollywood actor, Kalu Ikeagwu and his wife Ijeoma after five years of marriage have gone their separate ways due to irreconcilable differences.
Ijeoma who moved out of her matrimonial home in July 2021 was said to always be at loggerheads with her husband and accused him of having affairs with different ladies.
She also complained of his addiction to drugs, weed and cigarettes precisely, which he smokes in front of their kids indoors, regardless of the health condition of their daughter who is asthmatic.
Reports have it that Ikeagwu is allegedly asking for a refund of the fourteen thousand naira bride price he paid for his now estranged wife.
The couple have a son together and a daughter which Ijeoma had from her previous relationship.
Kalu Ikeagwu once recounted how fate brought him and his wife together while they were on a movie set.
“I met my wife in the movie industry. That was the first time she came on a movie set in Port-Harcourt. She was a make-up artist. She had finished a make-up course in India and had been engaged in business. I just encouraged her to come on set to see if make-up on a movie set was a thing for her or not. It was my actions on that set that got her attracted to me. I was the one who was running after her on that set. From the way I behaved on that set, that’s how she knew the kind of person I am. Sometimes, I am playful and, sometimes, I am serious when on set. However, I didn’t start anything with her until after we completed the shooting.
It was a spiritual thing. There was no direction per se, but when I saw her, I immediately recognized her as my wife. There was no need for me to waste time any more”.
