Man Cries Out As His Church Pastor Secretly Marries His Wife, Pastor’s Son Accuses Father Of Not Divorcing Mother |RN

Tina and Bright Ben; Tina and Pastor Moses Adeeyo

By Olamide Francis

A man, Bright Ben, has accused his pastor and General Overseer of the World Bank Assembly in Eneka,  Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Moses Adeeyo, of snatching his wife, Tina.

Bright claimed that trouble started after his wife of 12 years was made an assistant choir mistress in the church and she moved out of the house with their two children.

Bright said that he had been searching for her and had called the pastor to seek advice on the matter.

He stated that he got to know his wife’s whereabouts on Sunday when he saw photographs of her remarriage.

Bright, in a Facebook post with photos of the alleged marriage of his wife to the cleric, wrote, “As shameful as it sounds, it is a true-life story.

“My pastor married my wife. I’ve been married to Mrs Tina Bright for over 12 years, with two children. I introduced her to my General Overseer of the World Bank Assembly in Eneka, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area in Rivers State. We started attending the church and became full financial members.

“My wife was given an immediate appointment (assistant choir mistress) seven months ago. She moved out of the house with our children before I got back from work. I searched everywhere and called everyone, even the general overseer. Unknown to me, the G.O. was the architect of my problems.

“After some time, he stopped picking my calls and blocked my number. I’ve been looking for her until I saw these pictures yesterday online. He claimed that the Holy Spirit told him that she is his wife.

“Is the Holy Spirit an author of confusion? My wife of 12 years is now his.”

You’re a liar, you assaulted, sent me packing –Wife
In her reaction, Tina, who also took to social media, said that she left her husband over alleged assault and maltreatment.

She said, “Bright wants to make me a bad woman on social media. When we were together, he made me incur a lot of debts that I am still paying.

“He accuses me of infidelity and even disallowed me from pursuing my music career. He once told me that there is no marriage between us and that I am just here to take care of his children.

He promised to make my life miserable, including putting acid in my cream. Now, he’s coming on social media to destroy another man’s name. It is my time to shine.

“He is lying that he doesn’t know my whereabouts. I left his house after he locked me inside the house and kept the keys in his pocket. It was then I packed my things and told him it was over.

“He even told me to leave and that I was only useful for the children. My children got the spare keys, gave them to me and told me to escape at night.

“On the morning of November 28, 2020, I came to the house with a taxi, packed my load and took my children away. I put my children at my mother’s place and went to Lagos to start my life afresh.

“I was never residing with the pastor. He lived on the church premises and I lived in Lagos. Ben kept calling me while I was in Lagos before I blocked his number. He threatened me not to ever marry another person.”

Bright didn’t pay bride price -Ex-mother in-law

Tina’s mother, Christiana Everest, said Bright did not pay her daughter’s bride price.

“When Bright came to my house to ask for my daughter’s hand in marriage, I saw him as a son and asked if he was a Christian. I took him to the village, according to the tradition. He gave everyone their rights, both men and women, except the bride’s parents. When they told him to come and see us, he said that he’ll see us later,” she stated.

Bright denies all accusations

Bright, in a video clip, denied assaulting his wife.

He also refuted accusations by his ex-wife’s mother that he did not pay her bride price, saying that he did during their traditional wedding.

He insisted that he had not been divorced from his wife and wondered why, if she wanted to remarry, it would be to the cleric whom he always shared his marital problems with.

Dad yet to divorce mom -Pastor’s son

The pastor’s son, Peter Adeeyo, told PUNCH Metro that his father had yet to divorce his mother.

He said that he was as shocked as everyone when pictures of the wedding surfaced on the Internet.

“He said he doesn’t want my mother again. The case over the settlement of my mother has been in court for over one year.

“My mum was in Abuja when she saw the wedding pictures. Someone called my attention to the pictures when we closed from church on Sunday.

“My father didn’t inform any family member of the wedding. My dad is telling the world that he has divorced her and that is a lie,” he added.

The pastor did not pick his calls, as his phone rang out; and text messages sent to his phone number were not responded to as of the time of filing this report. (Punch)

BREAKING: Bill And Melinda Gates Announce Divorce After 27 Years Marriage |The Republican News

Bill and Melinda Gates
Frederic Stevens | Getty Images

■Bill and Melinda Gates met at Microsoft, and the two got married in 1994.


■The couple agreed to give away more than half their wealth.


■Financial implications are not immediately clear.

Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, said in a tweet on Monday that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, will be splitting up after 27 years. The two will keep working together on philanthropic work, which has addressed education, gender equality and health care.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” Bill and Melinda Gates wrote in a statement that Bill Gates tweeted out.

“Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”

The decision reflects a personal change at the top of American business.

Bill Gates led Microsoft as CEO from its founding with Paul Allen in 1975 until 2000, leaving Steve Ballmer to run the company, while Bill Gates became chairman and chief software architect. In 2008 Gates gave up his day-to-day role at the company to spend more time on the foundation.

Last year Bill Gates stepped down from Microsoft’s board as the coronavirus became a force around the world. He began spending more time on the nonprofit Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation alongside Melinda Gates. The two are co-chairs and trustees of the foundation, which launched in 2000.

Bill and Melinda Gates both worked at Microsoft. She had been a marketing manager at the software company. The two met at a dinner for Microsoft employees in 1987. “It took him quite a few months before he asked me out,” Melinda Gates later said. Bill Gates had weighed the pros and cons on a blackboard, and in 1994 the couple were married in Hawaii.

Financial details of the Gateses parting ways are not yet clear. Bill Gates owns 1.37% of Microsoft’s outstanding shares, which are worth more than $26 billion, according to FactSet. The couple were creators, along with Warren Buffett, of the Giving Pledge, which involves giving away more than half of their wealth.

At one point the couple decided to move $20 billion worth of Microsoft stock to the foundation as they sought to increase their commitment to philanthropy, Bill Gates wrote in a 2019 blog post. Today the foundation has over $51 billion in assets, according to a tax filing.

“In the case of Melinda, it is a truly equal partner,” Bill Gates said in the 2019 Netflix documentary “Inside Bill’s Brain.” “She’s a lot like me in that she is optimistic and she is interested in science. She is better with people than I am. She’s a tiny bit less hardcore about knowing, you know, immunology, than I am.”

Bill Gates is the world’s fourth richest person, behind Bezos, LVMH’s Bernard Arnault and Tesla’s Elon Musk, according to Forbes.

The announcement comes two years after Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, said he and his wife, MacKenzie, were getting divorced. Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos are among the world’s richest people, and Amazon and Microsoft compete in the cloud computing business. Amazon said earlier this year that Bezos would be stepping down from his post as CEO and that cloud chief Andy Jassy would replace him.

Femi Fani-Kayode Separates From Wife, Demands N2bn From Blogger For Libel |The Republican News

Femi Fani-Kayode and wife Precious Chikwendu


By Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has separated from his wife, Precious Chikwendu, with whom he had four sons, The PUNCH can confirm.

Fani-Kayode has, however, written a pre-litigation letter to popular blogger, Stella Dimokorkus, demanding N2bn from her for a report he termed libelous.

The blogger had in a report attributed the separation to domestic violence and alleged that the triplet sons may not have been fathered by Fani-Kayode as they were conceived through IVF and Chikwendu had demanded a DNA test.

In a letter signed by his lawyer, Mr. Adeola Adedipe, dated September 16, 2020, the former minister described the report as preposterous.

The letter titled, ‘Defamation of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode- Re: Femi Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu Part Ways Over Alleged Domestic Violence’, stated that the allegations were spurious and maliciously engineered.

The former minister said he was disturbed about the manner in which the report was written which insults the sensibilities of unsuspecting readers.

He denied allegations that he retrieved the car he bought for his estranged wife and had left her broke.

Fani-Kayode said it was saddening that his innocent little children could be dragged into such a report, subjecting them to ridicule.

The letter further read, “Our client is aggrieved and has instructed us to draw your attention to these libelous breaches of his person and family. By this publication, our client has received denigrating phone calls and messages across the globe by virtue of which he now sufferers immeasurable loss of goodwill.

“However, he is inclined to draw a curtain over the wild and spurious claims if you retract the allegations on the same platform they were published and consequently apologise to him in two other national dailies.

“You are also advised to enter into negotiations with us for the sum of two billion naira only being a token amount for penitence. Please bear in mind that you have 14 days from receipt of this letter to comply with the highlighted mitigating measures, the failure of which will leave our client with no preferred alternative than to seek redress in court.”

Fani-Kayode and Chikwendu, who is a former beauty queen, became an item around 2015 and subsequently welcomed a son in 2016.

In 2018, they welcomed a set of triplet boys. (Punch)

Chris Oyakhilome Ex-Wife Anita Schafer Speaks About Bad Marriage |The Republican News

Chris-Anita-Oyakhilome
 
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s ex-wife, Anita in a new blog post wrote about a couple who are happy on the outside but are facing the reality of a dead marriage. According to Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s ex-wife, a spouse who is at the center of a ‘dead marriage’, sometimes end up spending many years of endless hope in anticipation for a change, enduring a relationship that is bereft of life. Her blog post has been linked to what allegedly happened in her marriage.
 
Read what she wrote below;
 
Happy Anniversary to the best couple in the world
 
Wife : Hello
 
Husband: How are you?
Wife: I am good. How is your day?
Husband : Good
Wife : Today is our anniversary. Happy Anniversary.
Husband : Happy anniversary.
Wife : I noticed many greetings on social media wishing us a happy anniversary. I find it confusing to read comments from your close friends saying “ best couple in the world”; it sounds like a complete joke, when they know we rarely see each other. We see each other at most ten days in a year; I can’t understand their reason for making this comment, such flattery. It is confusing to me.
 
Husband : Well, at least they sent their greetings.
Wife : Their greetings are on social media, no contact by text or by email.
Husband : Silence
Wife : Hello
Husband : Yes
 
Wife : I sometimes wonder if we are married. There is nothing more to this relationship to indicate we are married apart from a ring on my finger; the ring is another story and our pictures are interjected because we are rarely together to take a proper picture. I feel sad that we are not together.
 
Husband : Look, I have told you over and over again that we cannot live in the same country because we are very busy and one country is too small for both of us. I expect you should be able to figure that out.
Wife : One country is too small for us?
 
Husband : Yes and you keep coming back to ask the same question.
Wife : Okay. Since you don’t often call either, please call the children, at least once a month. They go on for months without speaking with you. I noticed they don’t seem to care anymore.
 
Husband : Okay
Wife : That is about all.
Husband : Silence (breathing sound)
Wife : Have a beautiful day.
Husband : Silence (breathing sound)
Wife : Bye
Husband : Silence (breathing sound)
Wife : Hello
Husband : Silence (Goes off the Phone)
 
Wife : Okay
 
Facing the reality of a dead marriage, where a spouse spends many years of endless hope in anticipation for a change, enduring a relationship that is bereft of life. Believe it or not, this was somebody’s experience and is another person’s state of affair.
There is so much in life to be enjoyed.  (Unclesuru)

  “Before now, the husband wanted a divorce but Chinenye did not want their marriage dissolved after two kids and that was how the issue of going to the shrine for settlement was arrived at though she didn’t know that danger was lurking around.  

On their arrival at the shrine, a lone gunman hiding within the premises opened fire and shot Chinenye at close range and ran away leaving her in a pool of blood,” the source said. 

  The source further disclosed that the chief priest of the shrine was not aware of the couple’s visit prior to the incident while Ikechukwu was seen making some suspicious phone calls before the attack.

My Wife Is Adulterous, She Has A Child Outside Our Marriage, Man Tells Court |RN

broken-rings-problem-marriage

An Agege Customary Court, Lagos, on Thursday dissolved the 11-year-marriage between a civil servant, Adeola Ajulo, 45 and his wife, Isiwat, over incompatibility.

The President of the court, Mrs Ibironke Elabor said she observed that the estranged couple was tired of the marriage as all efforts to reconcile them failed.

“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of the marriage, this court has no choice but to dissolve the marriage.

“The court pronounced the marriage between Mr Adeola Ajulo and Mrs Isiwat Ajulo dissolved today, both parties henceforth ceased to be husband and wife.

She gave the custody of the children to the respondent and instructed the petitioner to pay N30, 000 monthly for their upkeep, education and other bills.

“Both parties are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances and molestation,” she said.

Earlier, Adeola told the court that he was fed up with his wife’s bad character.

“My wife is adulterous, not trustworthy, and troublesome. She also steals my money.

“She failed to tell me that she had had a child before we got married.

“She lied to me that the child was her elder sister’s, I later discovered that she was hers,” he said.

The petitioner told the court that his wife did not care about him and she was non-charlatan about the welfare of their three children.

“I want peace, l do not want any problems in my life, the court should end our marriage as I am no longer in love with her,’’ he said.

In her response, Isiwat, 38, a food vendor, said she was in support of the divorce because her husband was a violent and fetish man.

“My husband is diabolical and fetish, he always comes home with charms which he sprinkles around the house and my fear is that he may kill me one day if I do not end the marriage.”

Isiwat said she had to move out of their matrimonial home without his consent because he turned her into a punching bag.

“My husband beats me all the time, even in front of our children and neighbours.

“As a result of the frequent beating, sometimes in May 2017, I packed my belongings from his house and moved to my church with the children.”

She said her husband was as an irresponsible man and ungrateful.

“I have been responsible for our children’s upkeep and I am the one who pays their school fees.

“My husband is violent and l can no longer bear the pains; l do not want to lose my life.

“I pray the court to separate us so that I can live comfortably with my children,” she said.

Man Loses 25-years Marriage For Becoming A Pastor |The Republican News

By Agency Report

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos State on Monday terminated a 25-year-old marriage, following persistent pleas from an estranged woman that she would go no further in the relationship.

Petitioner Blessing Adeosun got her wish and ended the troubled union, having described her pastor husband as a deadbeat, who was not good at anything.

Blessing, 49, had approached the court for the dissolution of the marriage, saying that Lukmon Adeosun had abandoned his responsibility as a husband and father since he received `pastoral calling’.

“For the past three years, Lukmon abandoned us to live in the church all in the name of pastoral work.

“I shouldered all the responsibilities of paying house rent, children’s school fees and feeding.”

Blessing, a nurse, said that her husband also accused her of infidelity.
“He accused me of having an affair with a pastor, who I always invite to pray before taking delivery of pregnant women.”
She said that Lukmon was now trying to claim a house she single-handedly built with her money because of her desire to end the marriage.

Lukmon, however, explained that he hardly stayed at home because of his missionary work, saying that Blessing had started acting strangely when he became a pastor.

“My wife’s attitude suddenly changed, she started attending clubs and other social events.

“As a pastor’s wife she always absented herself from church activities,’’ he said, confirming also that he had accused Blessing of infidelity.

“I accused her of having an affair with another pastor because that pastor had told me several times to send my wife away from that she is an agent of the devil.

“So, when I started seeing them together regularly, I concluded that they are having an affair.”

Lukmon, 51, said that he was claiming his wife’s house because what belonged to his wife also belonged to him.

He, however, begged the court not to grant Blessing’s wish for the dissolution of the marriage because he was still in love with her.

Delivering his judgment, the President of the court, Mr Akin Akinniyi, noted that the petitioner was adamant, in spite of mediations from the court and family interventions.

“The petitioner refused to shift ground after several interventions, which indicates that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

“Therefore, the court has no choice than to grant the prayer of the petitioner; in spite of the fact that the husband still claims he loves her.

“The court pronounces the marriage between Blessing Adeosun and Lukmon Adeosun dissolved today. Both parties henceforth, cease to be husband and wife.

“Each of you should go on your separate ways unmolested. The court wishes both of you well in your new journeys of life.

“The first two children, who have attained the age of maturity, are free to stay with either parent but the other two, who are under 18 years of age should remain with their mother,” Akinniyi ruled. (NAN)

I’ll Die If I Give My Wife Money, Man Tells Divorce Court |The Republican News

Lawyershood

A 55-year-old fashion designer, Stephen Enebeli, told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Thursday that he would die if he gave money to his wife.

Enebeli said this when he responded to a divorce petition by his wife, Eunice, alleging lack of care for his children.

“I stopped giving her money for feeding and school fees of our children when she started living with another man.

“In my tradition, if a woman marries another husband legally or illegally and the former husband still gives her money for the welfare of the children, he will die and I am not ready to die now,” he said.

The respondent said that his wife sent him packing from their matrimonial home and he presently squats with friends.

“Eunice forced me out of her house because I always fight her for leaving the children at home and go to sleep with men,” he said.

According to him, Eunice lacks respect for him just because she has more money.

He begged the court to grant him the custody of the children so that he could train them.

“I don’t want another man to father or train my children while I am alive,” he said.

Eunice had urged the court to terminate their 16-year-old marriage for alleged lack of care.

“My husband is an irresponsible husband and father.

“While he was still living with me, he refused to pay house rent, feeding or school fees of the children, I shouldered all the responsibility.

“I bought him a motorcycle in addition to his fashion designing work so that he can be supportive, but he is just lazy and abandoned the motorcycle,” Eunice said.

The 36-year-old food vendor said that her husband was threatening to poison her.

“Stephen always tell me that he will kill me with poison if I make any attempt to divorce him and that he will marry another wife,” the petitioner alleged.

The mother of three, pleaded with the court to end the marriage that she was no longer in love with him.

Delivering judgment, the court President, Mr Akin Akinniyi, said that the petitioner was adamant despite all mediation from the court and family.

“Since the petitioner insisted on divorce after several interventions, the court has no choice than to dissolve the union in spite of the fact that the husband still claims he loves his wife.

“The court pronounces the marriage between Mrs Eunice Enebeli and Mr Stephen Enebeli dissolved today, both parties henceforth ceased to be husband and wife.

“Both parties are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances and molestation, the court wishes you well in your new journey.

“The custody of the children should remain with their mother,”Akinniyi ruled.

Emmanuel Eboue Hired By Galatasary As Youth Coach After Financial Melt Down |RN

Emmanuel-eboue

Emmanuel Eboue

Emmanuel Eboue, who had recently made shocking revelations that he was on the brink of suicide due to financial troubles, is reported to have been drafted as an assistant coach for Galatasaray Sports Club.
The Ivorian footballer played for the Turkish club between 2011 and 2016, but has lately suffered financial reversals that have brought him, he said, to the brink of suicide – following the confiscation of his assets due to poor investments and his expensive divorce from his Belgian ex-wife, Aurélie.

As a result of his current plight, the Yellow-Red fans started an online petition under the #Eboue hashtag.

Galatasaray’s legendary names, Hasan Şaş and Necati Ateş, also lent their support to the cause of the fallen star, who had reached out to his former clubs for assistance.

Galatasaray is said to be extending Eboue a helping hand, a message that spread quickly across Turkish media.

It has been indicated that the Yellow-Reds would be hiring Eboue as an assistant coach for the team’s U14 youth squad. During this time he’ll remain at the club’s Florya facilities and will be retained as a salaried employee.

Angelina Jolie Reveals What Put Strain On Her And Brat Pitt’s Marriage |RN

Antoinette Bueno‍
Angelina Jolie is reflecting on her final movie with Brad Pitt.

The 42-year-old actress recently appeared on The Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast Awards Chatter, where she candidly discussed why she wanted to work with Pitt on their critically panned 2015 film, By the Sea. Jolie says she believed at the time that the film would improve their marriage.

“We had met working together and we worked together well,” she explains, referring to meeting on the set of 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

“I wanted us to do some serious work together. I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate. In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things. But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the film.”

Terrill, File/ AP Photo FILE – In this Jan. 15, 2007 file photo, Brad Pitt, and actress Angelina Jolie arrive for the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Jolie acknowledges that outside factors definitely affected their relationship.

“Over the span of that decade, I did lose my mother,” she points out. “I did have my mastectomy, and I did then have an ovarian cancer scare and have that surgery as well, and other things of course that happened in life that you go through.”

“A piece of art can be something that’s healing or something that’s difficult,” she continues. “I don’t know. I’m glad we did that film because we did explore something together. Whatever it was maybe it didn’t solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other.”

During the interview, Jolie also discusses her famously rocky relationship with her father, actor Jon Voight. Jolie acknowledges that she didn’t feel close to her father growing up, which she explains is part of the reason why she didn’t take his last name, but says they’ve begun a “new” relationship thanks to her kids –16-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 12-year-old Zahara, 11-year-old Shiloh and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

“Through grandchildren now we’re finding a new relationship and it’s very, very nice,” she shares. “We’ve had some difficulties. Through art is a way we’ve been able to talk. It’s a common language. We don’t really talk politics well.”

In October, Jolie brought daughters Shiloh and Zahara with her to the Los Angeles premiere of The Breadwinner, where they adorably held hands on the red carpet. (ETOnline)
