celeb marriages test of time

Most celebrities are no different than the rest of us and many have been married early on in life but some unions just aren’t the same like some others.

So, we thought we would take a look at some celebrities who have been married but their union couldn’t withstand the drama and glam.

1. Funke Akindele and Kehinde Oloyede


Funke Akindele tied the knot with Kehinde Oloyede in 2012 against all odds. Kehinde was alleged to be a serial baby daddy, keeping a string of affairs, and even returning to the women he had prior to the big celebrity wedding with Funke Akindele.

2. Uche Ogbodo and Arthur Akpo

Many people found it unbelievable that 9ice and Toni Payne could seperate but it eventually did happen. Way back in January 2010, 9ice accused Toni of infidelity and those familiar with the situation continue to allege that Ruggedman had an on-off affair with Payne before and during her relationship with 9ice.

But, both Ruggedman and Payne insist they were all lies. No one has been able to place a finger on the cause of the breakup, but close friends of the couple have suggested that it was majorly  due to “incompatibility”.

7. Doris Simeon and Daniel Ademinokan
