Simi Esiri, the estranged wife to Nigerian singer Dr Sid, has confirmed that they have ended their 5-year-old marriage.
Simi announced the split on her Instagram page while reacting to allegations that she was physically abusive towards the singer, and also stopped him from seeing their kids
She denied both allegations saying the fabrication aimed at defaming her character and integrity. Simi maintained that they’re now separated and are moving on with the tough decision of a divorce.
“I have been consciously silent on this but as some people are out to defame my character and integrity with a fabrication of the facts, I am choosing to address it once and for all,” she said.
“A lot of you may have known for some time now that Sid and I are no longer together and are moving forward separately with the tough decision to divorce. Our priority will now be working together as co-parents in raising our two beautiful girls.
“The incredibly false allegations recently written about our marriage ending due to me being domestically violent towards someone twice my size and also of me preventing him from seeing his children (when he has clearly shared recent pictures with our daughters at my home) only depicts the laughable lengths at which some press are willing to go for click baits, and this needed to be cleared up. Such attempts will not be tolerated as I have stomached enough already.
“Thank you all in advance for your love, understanding and support while respecting our family’s privacy. I will not be commenting publicly beyond this.
“Lots of love & God bless, Simi.”
Simi and Dr Sid tied the knot in 2014 and their marriage was blessed with two beautiful girls.
