“Hey guys I am writing to inform you all officially that I have ended my relationship and I have called off the wedding with Alex Ekubo,” she wrote in the post.
Although she acknowledged that the news would be shocking to many, she insisted that she had made the greatest option for herself because “it is important that everyone finds their happiness and lives in their truth.”
At this time my family and I ask you all to please respect our privacy. Thank you” She came to a conclusion.
Despite the media attention, Alex Ekubo has remained deafeningly quiet, offering no comment on the topic.
