Actress Ireti Doyle has confirmed her divorce from her husband of over 19 years, veteran broadcaster and actor, Patrick Doyle, saying the couple have consequently gone their separate ways.
In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the actress said she was no longer married to Mr Doyle.
“We are officially divorced,” she confirmed.
Ireti, 55, also went on to say that she had no business being married at that time.
“When you’re an adult, it’s not a life and death situation…there are some situations that are way beyond your control,” she said.
“The truth of the matter is that I had no business being married at that time, period! let’s not even go to the choice of who I married. I can’t sacrifice my life in the altar of your imagination.”
Ireti shared a clip of the interview on her Instagram page, adding: “There is a time to be silent and a time to speak. In this age where everything one says is scrutinized and quartered; it takes a certain level of trust to bare intimate details .. we are here now.”
