It has been a week of divorce news in Nollywood. Just a few days ago, Chris Attoh revealed his marriage to Damilola Adegbite was over. Also, Nollywood star actress, Toyin Aimakhu shared the latest update on her former marriage. Even though Toyin Aimakhu and Adeniyi Johnson are no longer together and they both seem have moved on, legally they are still married.
In an interview with ‘This Day’, award winning actress, Doris Simeon has revealed she and Ex husband, Daniel Ademinokan are not legally divorced. She also spoke about single mothers and how men are avoiding their responsibilities as husbands.
When asked about her marital status, she said:
“I am not legally divorced – the divorce suit is still in court. Yes, I am single and I am a happy woman.”
When asked whether she thinks being a single mother is now fashionable in Nollywood, she said:
“Single motherhood is not peculiar to Nollywood. If you go to the banking sector, there are single mothers there; in the military, in law firms and other fields, there are single mothers.”
She went on saying “It is not our fault; it’s just that men no longer want to play their role as husbands. I am not a supporter of single parenthood: every man or woman has the right to live their life the way they choose.”
“It’s just by God’s grace that I am acting and producing. Emotional trauma is not what I will encourage anybody to pass through. God created every woman for a man. So marriage is good.”she concluded.
Doris was married to producer, Daniel Ademinokan whom she met on set and together they have a son. As of May 2013, they got divorced. Daniel Ademinokan is currently married to Stella Damasus.
