Court tells Stephanie Okereke her first marriage was not valid

A high court in Lagos has rendered the first marriage of star actress Stephanie Okereke to footballer Chikelue Iloanusi, null and void. The judge told the actress who had gone to court to divorce Chikelu, that the marriage never existed, so she can't seek a divorce, only an annulment. According to the judge, the marriage between Stephanie and Chikelue wasn't valid because at the time they got married, Chikelu was legally married to another woman in the US.

Stephanie and Chikelue had a secret registry wedding some years back but they broke up less than a year later. Now going from the court's judgement, Stephanie is not Chikelue's ex-wife, she was never legally married to him. So when she marries Linus Idahosa, it will be her first legal marriage.

You understand the story? lol.

Its a pity such a serious actress should find herself in this kinda mess. Stephanie has always been a babe after me heart. Hope she's shined her eyes well over this Idahosa fellow. Anyhow if she's not, I'd carry an Uzi on the man and make sure he gets an attitude adjustment. Stephanie fear not, I've got your back.

Married women check ur husband ooo he might be married to another woman in kafannshan! U think its a joke abi? U berrer go and start investigating! Unless ur okay wiv it tho

It's simple to understand. Steph and Chikelu married without the court real process so they didn't get the court approval bcos the court told them they cant wed both since chikelu is still married to a US base woman but both steph n Chikelu ignore the court n went ahead with the wedding to save them from shame and letdown from people. So linus stephs recent man would have told steph to pls go and bring the divorce certificate of her previous marriage with chikelu. Steph who knew she couldn't get the divorce certificate bcos they wedded illegally in court would have made a move with Linus to the court to get the divorce bcos if she didn't Linus will be amazed as to why won't she go to the court to get the divorce lol, for her to make Linus comfortable she went and the court would have told her " what divorce or didn't we tell you the wedding can't take place in court bcos chikelu is still married in the US?
Oh you both went ahead behind the court and arrange a ceremony in front of the registry to claim
married?we are sorRy there is no document about you and your ex chikelu in this court. ". I am sure that was what happened and I hope Linus don't get disappointed that she framed up stories?well that is my understanding in the story Linda .

Among all the Nollywood stars, my best is Stephanie Okereke, followed closely by Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. Others na look I dey look them.
Stephanie has class and character...Omotola is just too sweet and kind to ignore. Love them to bits....

Bullshit. This same scenario wud play out again after she divorces this new one. I mean, why cant all men be like George Clooney and Al Pacino? FUCK EM ALL BUT LOVE NONE!

Is the court trying to convince Stephanie that her marriage to Chikelu never existed. Well, I am sure Stephanie was very aware of his legal marriage in the states before they contracted their marriage secretly. I am a woman but women will always be women. If things were still okay between the two of them, do you think Stephanie will agree that they did not have a marriage? I wish her well but I am surprise how insecure girls can be these days. They believe only when they have a man they can be complete. I am in shock knowing that the guy was even married at the time they contracted the marriage. What the hell was she thinking about, money, opulence? But she make her money, perhaps she wants too money. Girls wake up. I hope this new one is not based on the same shadow o!

That is the disadvantage of anything secret. Secret this and secret that. Keep it open so if anyone has something to expose, it will be exposed. If you feel you can handle it, fine. She secretly did the first wedding and is secretly doing the second (Paris). I tire for all these kin news.

I pity all the babes longing to marry guys in jand and yankee as if na here paradise dey. With all I've seen here, all I do is SMH. Many young Nigerian (African) dudes are married to oyibo women old enough to be their mum. TUFIAKWA.

Well, all for citizenship.

You guys are dumbed.You have to bring evidence to court before divorce or annulment is granted. Steph most have given evidence to the court and they must have granted her wish. Good to know she's not a divorcee .Wishing her a happy Marriage that will last forever.

@ 8.51pm - maybe in the eyes of the court, she may not be a divorcee BUT in the eyes of the tradition and her people, she is a divorcee because the guy carry drink go her papa house. They took his wines and the bride price, they accepted the marriage therefore as long as she is no longer married to dude, she is a divorcee. I hope Linus Idahosa whom she has publicly referred to as her very own Barack Obama proves to be The One for her because I would truly hate to see her be twice divorced. She is a nice girl and deserves some happiness, I hope she did her research before she said I do all because her age is going up and her egg count is going down.

You cannot compare her situation with others abeg. The girl did the right thing to seek for an annulment from her "supposed Marriage" Smart girl, want to clear all the web from the cupboard! Nulll and void! I pray this will be you only marriage and may it last till enternity. Wishing all the best

i don't have any beef with her but i think that her previous husband was not a total mistake. She went in with her eyes open. She felt she outgrew him dats y she left him. She is not as innocent as she claims to be. I think she is one of the most secretive of all these actresses sef.
