In November 2013, when the news surfaced that actress Uche Iwuji's marriage to businessman Juwon Lawal had crashed a year after the two tied the knot and just a few months after they welcomed a son, both partners denied it.
Now they seem to have decided to come clean.
Juwon just released a press statement via his publicist announcing the end of his marriage to Uche.
See it below:
"This should serve as the official statement confirming the end to the marriage formalized on Friday, November 16th 2012 between the CEO of ABD Fuels Plc, Mr. Juwon Rasak Lawal and actress Uche Iwuji. Already, the court processes are on to give a legal seal to the separation. Mr. Lawal was in Europe on a business tour when the story first broke through the media. This was the reason why he could not react appropriately to it, plus the fact that he felt the event could be redeemed. Although, he would not want to talk about the reasons for the separation, Mr. Lawal is not married anymore to Miss Iwuji. And he will like to treat his estranged wife’s case as "once a friend, always a friend."
