Things between actor, Alex Ekubo and his estranged fiance, Fancy Acholonu seems to get messier by the day as his sister, Ifeoma has come to his defence.
Speaking out in an online interview with Obodo Oyibo, Ifeoma cleared the air on the shenanigans going on between the estranged couple.
Touching on Alex Ekubo’s sexuality, Ifeoma shut down rumours that her brother is gay and slammed Fancy for fueling such reports with her “Live in your truth” statement and that they never had cex during their 5 years relationship.
Ifeoma insisted that her brother isn’t gay and faulted Fancy for spreading false rumours about him. Ifeoma claimed that the two had sex in January and as such, the ‘[email protected]’ reports aren’t true.
In an interview with Stella Dimoko Korkus, Fancy Acholonu revealed that for the five years they dated, he never had intimacy with her.
“I tried my best. He wanted to get back with me as much as I did. We’ve been at this for one year. But he felt since I broke up with him I should do more of the work. I was fine with that but his methods are cruel and constantly public. His sexuality is not the reason I broke up with him. I’m very open minded so regardless of what he prefers, love is love for me. I loved him for his personality and heart nothing more. He didn’t want to be with me intimately which was confusing and difficult for me to understand especially for 5 years so it did affect my self esteem as I kept myself for him and when he would cheat with curvy women he wouldn’t perform with them either so I don’t know, I can’t confirm or deny his cexuality but for me, I loved him despite all and he still found ways to hurt me.”
“When I met him I didn’t have much experience so it was easy to convince me that his decision was because of religion. But as he would constantly cheat and yes I caught him, it would hurt me because that’s not part of the religious believe he made our celibacy to be. Honestly this whole thing has been complicated beyond words so it’s unhealthy for me to continue this relationship. I guess I needed this post he begged me to do so that i can see his intention was just to clean up his image.”
When asked to say something to Alexx through this interview, Fancy Acholonu said: “Honestly I don’t know what to say to him. This has to be the most devastating thing I’ve ever been through, and for it to be so public; I pray we both find healing and peace because it won’t be an easy journey. One breakup statement shouldn’t have led to all this. I wish I never said anything but I am human; I was fed up with good reasons. I pray he doesn’t only focus on people’s reactions but evaluate his actions too. I also pray he learns to be real and more forgiving with his next person and not be so consumed with having the perfect image because it’s draining to keep that up. My mental health can’t tolerate our relationship anymore.”
