Oge Okoye’s Ex-husband Is A Businessman
Stanley Duru, an Amsterdam-based businessman, and millionaire also happen to be the ex-husband of Oge Okoye. Like the actress, he is from the South-Eastern part of Nigeria, as he is a native of Imo State. However, apart from the fact that he is known as a businessman, no further details have been provided with regards to the exact kind of business that he does to make him a millionaire.
More so, given their career pursuits, the pair might never have crossed paths but as fate will have it, the ex-couple met in a rather interesting way. According to reports, they met in a nightclub when Oge was working on a movie. Her outfit made Stanley misjudge her for a prostitute but irrespective of that, he wanted to get to know her with the intention of helping her out of that kind of lifestyle. However, a friend nearby eventually clarified his misconception by telling him that she was only an actress and she was dressed that way because she was trying to fit into the character she was portraying.
Stanley would later walk up to the actress and during the course of their conversation, they exchanged contacts. The lovebirds walked down the aisle in 2006. They reportedly moved to Amsterdam that same year and welcomed their first child by the end of the year.
What Led To Their Divorce?
Oge and Stanley’s marriage was a very happy one at first as the pair who loved clubbing would usually go out together to have a good time in different clubs. However, the seemingly blissful union turned into a sour one because both partners weren’t faithful to each other. It was reported that Oge was the first to cheat on her husband based on what has been labeled as ‘personal reasons’ but Stanley did not take it lightly and in a bid to take his own pound of flesh, he cheated on his wife with a woman named Barbara in Holland.
Well, Stanley’s infidelity complicated their marriage even more as it resulted in him having a child outside his marriage. More so, the actress is known to have stated that even though Stanley was ‘God-fearing’ and financially stable, he wasn’t a good husband, neither was he a caring father. She went further to add that he had laid his hands on her on several occasions.
The couple however tried to mend things and got back together again after Stanley’s infidelity. Oge got pregnant for the second time and this time, she had a baby girl whom they named Crystal. However, the marriage became quite unbearable and a few years after their daughter’s birth, they filed for divorce in 2012.
The Nollywood Actress Got Custody Of Her Children After The Divorce
After their separation, certain rumors came up, identifying Stanley as a chronic alcoholic who spends his money partying and clubbing. The allegations went further to confirm Oge’s accusations that Stanley was never a caring father and husband. However, some people still concluded that the allegation was false and was an attempt by Oge and her family to blackmail Stanley.
Meanwhile, Oge Okoye got full custody of their children and she has been playing the role of both a father and mother to the kids – Chibuikenwere and Crystal. Sometime in 2016, she took to social media to make some remarks about fatherhood and it was obvious that she was referring to her ex-husband. However, her sad reality has not dampened her love for her children as the actress is a dotting mother who occasionally shares pictures of her lovelies on social media, and from the look of things, they are all leading quite a happy life under her care.
Who Is Oge Okoye Dating Now?
Oge is one of the actresses who believe that one’s private life should be kept away from the public. She had even gone online sometime in March 2020 to share some very important relationships tips that border around keeping things between you and your partner private. According to her, keeping relationships private will also mean handling any downside that may arise in private but if the relationship is blown out in the public space, it will end up attracting undue attention. With that as her stance, there is presently no information about her relationships ever since her marriage crumbled.
However, being a public figure, it is quite impossible to stop the rumors from making the rounds on the internet and Oge has been entangled in a couple of them as regards her relationship life. One such news that was circulated was that Oge Okoye dated the popular actor, Mike Ezuruonye but none of them came out to the public to accept or deny the allegation.
There were also talks in 2020 of her sleeping with married men and this accusation was raised by the Nollywood actress, Doris Ogala. The man in question was Uche Elendu’s ex-husband, Prince Walter Ogochukwu Igweanyiba and the actress did not leave any details hidden with respect to the allegations as she took to her Instagram page to share a conversation to back her claims. Moreso, this was not the first time Oge Okoye has been linked to snatching a man as her estranged husband, Stanley Duru, is believed to had a very serious relationship with the Nollywood actress Nkiru Sylvanus before he took off to marry Oge. To date, Oge and Nkiru are not on good terms and tend to avoid each other at all costs.
