Nollywood actress Ireti Doyle has announced that she and her husband Patrick Doyle are officially divorced.
In an interview with Chude, the actress revealed that she was no longer married to Patrick, with whom she has six children.
“We are officially divorced,” she confirmed.
The 55-year-old actor also denied that she had her first child at the age of 17, claiming that it was at the age of 19 and that she had no business marrying at that age.
“The truth of the matter is that I had no business being married at that time, period! Let’s not talk go to the choice of who I married.
“I can’t sacrifice my life in the alter of your imagination or your fantasy,” she said.
She said, “When you’re an adult, it’s not a life and death situation…there are some situations that are way beyond your control, the truth of the matter is that I had no business being married at that time, period! let’s not talk go to the choice of who I married.”
Doyle told the host that, while they may have painted a pretty picture for the fans, there was a large gap between the image and their reality.

She went on to say that while they are entertainers, their private lives are not, and the public has no right to know anything about them.
“That I’m an actor and plying my trade in the public arena does not make you entitled to my personal life. And quite frankly, I don’t owe anybody any explanation. So go ahead; speculate all you want. If it helps you digest your morning tea, I’m happy to oblige,” she said.
She stated that her life is not an animation and that she does not rob the hopes of those who want to believe in love.
“My life is not an animation. I’m sorry if I contributed to shattering your image of love and the perfect couple. Still, my life is not an animation, and I cannot sacrifice my life on the altar of imagination or fantasy.
“So if I hurt anybody, I’m sorry. But I had to choose for myself. I’d say it was a pretty picture, but there was a wide cavity between the picture and reality,” she added.
She, however, insisted that she kept the name Ireti Doyle because she had worked hard for it.
