Keen followers of the Nigerian entertainment industry were taken aback when news broke that comedienne, Damilola Adekoya popularly known as Princess, announced that her seven-month-old marriage to husband, Adeshola Jeremiah had hit the rocks.
Princess confirmed that her marriage ended due to “irreconcilable differences”.
But more facts have emerged on why the marriage crashed so early, as it was reported that the couple had started having problems two weeks into the marriage.
There are indications by close friends that the marriage crashed as a result of Princess’ ‘high profile lifestyle’.
Osun Defender reports that her husband got tired of Princess high profile, party/show going lifestyle at the early stage of their union and attempts to curtail these excesses led to the failure of their marriage, a close source told the newspaper.
It was also alleged that Adeshola married Princess for her money, thinking she had plenty of it and wanted to use her as a means to gain prominence in the showbiz industry, not knowing that she was only a struggling woman trying to make it in life.
Unable to bear his excesses anymore, Princess decided to quit the marriage though it’s not known if she will file for divorce.
