Segun Arinze Seeks Divorce

May 26, 2009 14:39 (2 hours ago), 194 views

Nollywood actor, Segun Arinze, on Monday sought leave of an Ikeja High Court, Lagos, to dissolve his marriage to Annette Aina-Padonou.

The marriage of 13 years is blessed with a 12-year old daughter.

Arinze told Justice Sybil Nwaka that the marriage had broken down irreparably and irreconcilably, after the couple had stayed apart for 11 years, since 29 May, 1998.

He said he was seeking leave of the court to legally separate them to allow him go on with his life, promising to be responsible for their daughter’s upkeep.

Arinze said they both found out after about a year into the marriage that they could not live together as husband and wife.

The marriage was contracted at the Ikorodu Local Government Registry on 10 May, 1996.

Under cross-examination by his counsel, Mr. Henry Efere, the actor said their marital differences culminated in his wife packing out of their Surulere residence 11 years ago.

Arinze said he was not opposed to Annette taking custody of their daughter, Morenike Padonou, and assured the court that he would continue to be responsible for her upkeep.

Nwaka adjourned the case till 24 June for further hearing.

if my memory serves me right, the child Anne njemanze had for him was named morenike and we all know that arinze is not his real surname.he is from the western part of the country probably badagry, he changed his surname when he started his music career in the early dayz cos he wanted a stage name with a bit of ummf . Anne's full name is Annette. the fact that a couple has separated does not mean that they are officially divorced, you know naija style now.anyway,i am sensing a link somewhere,; anyone else sensing it?

i'm sure there's a mix up somewhere cos Segun Arinze was/has been dating someone else for sometime and the marriage the reporter is referring to was annulled a long time ago

How does this relate to politics?

I posted this news because it does not quite add up. I thought Segun was married to Anne Njemanze. They separated/divorced a few years ago. Now this news says Segun wants to divorce a wife who definitely is not Anne and to whom he has been married to for 12 years. Does this mean Segun had two wives concomittantly, in which case he divorced one first and now the other? Is he ever going to settle down?
