January 14, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actress, Iretiola Doyle, has finally confirmed her divorce from actor and broadcaster, Patrick Doyle.
Although it was common knowledge as far back as 2017 that the couple’s 15-year marriage had hit the rocks, both never openly confirmed it.
The couple tied the knot in 2004.
But in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, the media personality, Ireti finally confirmed that she has parted ways with her husband.
“We are officially divorced,” she said.
Ireti also said she had no business being married at the time she did, adding that some things are beyond one’s control.
“When you’re an adult, it’s not a life and death situation…there are some situations that are way beyond your control,” she added.
“The truth of the matter is that I had no business being married at that time talk less of… let’s not even go to the choice of who I got married to.”
“There is a time to be silent and a time to speak. In this age where everything one says is scrutinised and quartered; it takes a certain level of trust to bare intimate details .. we are here now,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
The actress, however, did not go into details of their split.
The ex-couple had a child while they were together. While Ireti has an older daughter from a previous relationship, Patrick had four children from his first marriage to his late wife.
