The eight-month-old marriage of Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia has reportedly crashed.

This is coming four months after she announced the arrival of her first child.

The movie star took to her Instagram page on Saturday, May 8, 2021, where she called out a popular blogger for announcing the crash of her marriage and breaking the news of her pregnancy months ago.

“This ‘old witch’ again! I really do not want to reply you but I feel you will never stop if I ignore. You were the first person to publicise my pregnancy that was barely trying to survive past the first trimester due to its complication. I kept quiet,” she wrote.

“Now you have come again and I know you have receipts and you won’t dare us to deny. I don’t blame you, it’s the close friend, the insider who is feeding you. May God forgive that person.”

“Everyone is going through something including you. Thanks for getting this huge burden off my chest. You tried. But from now on, avoid me, Stella. T for Tenx.”

She has since deleted the post.

It would be recalled that the actress got married in September 2020, to a Benin-based lawyer, Ighorosa.

This is her second marriage that is ending abruptly.
