Lessons from celebrity breakups/failed Marriages In Nollywood

Celebrities hook up and break up so often it’s tough to keep track of
who’s dating who. Anyway, here are some of the many lessons from their break-ups.

 Getting married too soon is a bad idea

We saw it with Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries; we saw it with Stephanie Okereke and Chikelue IIoenuosi; 9ice and Toni Payne…without mincing words, not less than 25 top actresses in Nollywood had
waded through the ‘marital swamp’ and came out divorced or
separated.
Walking down the aisle too soon is
often a one-way ticket to relationship disaster. Getting to know a
person is key when it comes to knowing whether you’re compatible enough
to get married. Otherwise, you find out down the road that he wants kids
and you don’t, you want to live in the city and he doesn’t, or you just
can’t stand living together. Lesson learned: Know you’re ready before you tie the knot.

If you’re not careful, you will get caught

How many times have we seen celebs on the covers of tabloids doing
something they shouldn’t? Jim Iyke and the likes…Kristen Stewart
was caught getting (ahem) cozy
with a guy that was definitely not Robert Pattinson, and the list goes
on. It just goes to show that no matter how sly you think you’re being,
you will get caught. If you’re a celebrity, the paparazzi will find you,
and if you’re a regular person, your significant other will eventually
catch on.

Lesson learned: If you want out of your relationship, be honest. Don’t get caught with your pants down.

 Fighting in public (or in the tabloids) is bad

Airing your dirty laundry post-breakup is something celebs seem to do
fairly regularly, by leaking information to magazines through their
publicists. We saw it with Kefee and her first husband, Alec Godwin (who had an
ugly split) and we saw it with Kenny St Best and Eddie Brown, and 9ice and Toni Payne. Being angry doesn’t mean you should tell everyone who will listen how
horrible your ex is. What happened between you is your business and his,
not the rest of the world’s, too.
