Patrick Doyle, Veteran Nollywood actor,  is set to tie the knot with his new wife identified as Funmi, after his marriage to his colleague, Ireti Doyle, hit the rock.

The couple’s pre-wedding photos have flooded social media as they tie the knot traditionally today, December 14.

Recall that Patrick’s ex-wife, Ireti Doyle, confirmed their divorce during an interview with Chude Jideonwo in January, saying: “We are officially divorced.”

The mother of six also corrected the impression that she had her first child at 17, noting that she was 19 when she became a mother.

Chude, in his intro, disclosed that the actress suffered physical and domestic violence as a teen.

She supported his claim by saying that she had no business getting married at the time she did, not to talk of who she chose to get married to.

Meanwhile, in a social media post on Saturday, January 14, 2022, Ireti Doyle apologized to her fans for shattering their image of love and a perfect couple.

She noted that her life is not an animation and cannot be sacrificed at the altar of fans’ imagination or fantasy.

During a Twitter exchange with some of her followers, Ireti explained why she still bears ‘Doyle’ despite the divorce.

According to her, ‘Ireti Doyle’ belongs to her, and it is a name that is nearly 30 years in the making.

Adeola, the younger brother to late Nollywood actress, Jumoke Aderounmu, popularly known for her role as Esther in the popular sitcom, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’, has said the deceased died in her sleep and was not sick.

 

Adeola made this known during an interview with Punch, stating that Jumoke was planning on relocating to the United Kingdom before her demise.

 

According to him, the deceased wanted to relocate to the UK because she was not getting movie roles.

 

Speaking on why she publicly called out Nollywood actress cum filmmaker, Funke Akindele, for not helping the deceased in her time of need, Adeola said he does not have her number, but his sister reached out to her through another actress, Paschaline Alex.

 

He said, “I did not reach out to her (Funke), because I don’t have her phone number, and I am not close to her. But, my sister had her number, and even sent another actress, Paschaline Alex to her, all to no avail.

 

“She (Funke) stopped calling her for jobs. Jumoke tried to know why, because she wanted to retrace her steps if she had committed any offence.

 

“She was an introvert, and usually kept to herself. She was actually not sick. She just died in her sleep.”

 

He added that though Jumoke had been buried, the family would organise a tribute event in a church on the 40th day after her death.

Idris Okuneye popularly known Bobrisky, will be kept in the male section of the prison facility throughout his six-month imprisonment, Peoples Gazette reportedly learnt from officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service.

 

Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Friday sentenced Bobrisky to jail after he pleaded guilty to a four-count charge of naira abuse.

 

Bobrisky told Ms Awogboro that he was a man when asked to clarify his gender status before the court. The Gazette was told that his answer would later inform the prison officials to keep him in the facility designated for men.

 

“Since he admitted to being a male in court, then we have to abide by what was submitted in court,”.

 

Prison officials also said Bobrisky will be offered adequate protection from other inmates who might want to sexually violate him.

 

“He shouldn’t be afraid of sexual assault from other male inmates because our men can give him protection.”

 

Bobrisky, posting a video of him clutching what appeared to be bosoms and posing half-naked in a bathrobe, has given his five million Instagram followers the impression that he has transitioned to a female.

 

In one of his photos on Instagram, he wrote, “My journey transitioning into a woman has been going smooth, no health issues, everything is going smooth for me.”
