Happily never after.
When one ties the knot, they hope it’s the first and last time they do it but that is not always the case as these celebrities came to learn.
Below are 5 celebrities whose marriage didn’t make it past the first year.
1. Betty Kyallo
The K24 news anchor split from her husband Dennis Okari after only 6 months.
Miss Kyallo claimed that her ex-husband joined a ‘cultish’ church, his family didn’t like her and there were red flags she ignored before tying the knot such as Okari standing her up during their traditional wedding.
“He did not pick up my call. I tried calling him again after an hour and once again it went unanswered,” she revealed to True Love magazine.
They then attempted to call his family and they too had switched their phones off. “At 3 pm when we tried to call again, all their phones were off. By the time the sun was going down, it was obvious that I had been stood up on my traditional wedding.”
Kenya’s number one hype man married the beautiful Yvette Nungari an air hostess at a stunning wedding held at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club in 2015.
However, things didn’t go as planned and the two went their separate ways before celebrating their first anniversary. DNG deleted all photos of his baby boo and went on to post a cryptic message that people believe was aimed at Yvette.
“Never take back a snake. Even if it sheds its skin, a snake will always be a snake,” he wrote.
DNG has never spoken about why they split but fans suspect that he broke up with her because she wasn’t who DNG thought she was.
“I dumped a really hot chic who had a really dark heart and a shitty personality. I’d rather be with a chic who scores 1/10 when it comes to looks but has a heart of gold. It really takes a mature mind to understand such depth,” he confessed.
3. Sharon Mundia aka This Is Ess
The NTV presenter broke up with one Lonina Leteipan following a scenic beach wedding in Watamu. According to the grapevine, their split came after Lonina allegedly busted Sharon in bed with 2 of Nairobi’s most popular female celebrities.
She came out to clear her name terming the story ‘ungracious and untruthful’ but she would rise above it.
“A lot of ungracious and untruthful stories have been circulating about me recently. Even though they have crossed the line, I choose, as usual, to focus on my vision of creating and sharing online content that will uplift and spread positive energy all around me, right now I’m choosing to focus on my work and being the best mother I can be to my sweet love, Naila,” read her tweets.
She then went on to add, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its boots on.”
4.Paul Mungala Mbuvi
For this K24 presenter, his marriage did not make it past two weeks as he discovered that his wife was a cheater.
“My marriage ended 10 days after our wedding because of unfaithfulness. We tried to work it out, but it just didn’t work. It’s stressful…When I confronted her, she didn’t even deny it. She said it was true and that she had fallen in love with someone else and that she was leaving me. She said I wasn’t there for her when she was expecting our daughter. I have been dragged through the mud,” Paul told Eve Woman Magazine.
5. Eunice Njeri
The singer’s marriage didn’t even last a day as she broke off her marriage hours after a glamorous wedding to Izzo Raps in the U.S.A.
Eunice admitted during an interview that she made the decision to get married in a state of confusion as she was sick.
“I was going with my heart at the time, also at the same time I was very sick. I had fibroids, bleeding a lot and at the same time I thought I should get married, I was like maybe I should do this, why am I saying no? I have been saying no for 20 years, maybe its time to say yes, you know. And in that mix of being sick, being in the hospital and getting all these transfusions, I had a whole confusion time. Confusion made me rush into decisions I wouldn’t have made. And last year I had to have surgery and I was in the hospital for quite a while. And after the surgery is when I thought ‘Nothing in this world should make you ever make a decision like that even if its sickness because you are gonna hurt many people.’ Which I did,” she confessed on Talk Central.
