In August 5, 2014 when Dr Sid and Simi got married, it was amidst pomp and pageantry.Every known celebrity then was present. The Internet was agog with the news.
Back then for Singer Dr Sid, Simi, his wife was all he wanted. The same applied to Simi. Blessed with two daughters,the marriage had not only packed up,Simi herself confirmed the split on Instagram on Sunday, January 26, 2020.
Simi in a post on Instagram confirmed that their marriage has truly crashed but denied the allegations that she was violent towards her husband.
“ “I have been consciously silent on this but as some people are out to defame my character and integrity with a fabrication of facts, I am choosing to address it once and for all.
A lot of you may have known that for some time now, Sid and I are no longer together and are moving forward separately with the tough decision to divorce.
The incredibly false allegations recently written about our marriage ending due to me being domestically violent towards someone twice my size and also 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.” she wrote in part. But not everyone knew the marriage crashed before it kicked off almost six years ago.
Dr Sid, who is a son of late actor, Justus Esiri revealed in an interview in 2016 that they quarreled two days to their wedding. Talking about marriage, he said, “It can be beautiful if you work towards it. I remember us quarrelling two days before our wedding and even threatening to pull out. But, our love for each other has kept us going.”
Though manyaccused Simi of abusing her estranged husband, she debunked it,lending credence to Dr. Sid’s huge frame and her inability to beat a man.
“It’s a lie! Don’t mind her. She’s telling lies. Simi Esiri used to hit and beat her ex husband Dr. Sid and even break stuffs but he never used to respond because he didn’t want her to have any evidence and then later turn around to accuse him of same. It’s only recently that he was allowed to see his kids,” sources told Kemi Ashefon.
But then, many are of the opinion that Simi, who comes from a wealthy background could no longer cope with her estranged husband’s philandering ways and also because he could not maintain her status of being a silverspoon kid.
“We knew it would not last. She had her bachelorette in Las Vegas and made sure she didn’t included friends who missed the event on her wedding guest list. Simi is from a rich home and couldn’t cope with Dr Sid’s broke life,” a source close to the estranged couple said.
But there is another angle to the divorce. Kemi Ashefon gathered that Simi’s retired mum allegedly stood as a third party which didnt augur well for the union.
“The real culprit is allegedly Simi’s mum. The woman kept interfering. And Simi did not help matters as she constantly reported her husband to her mother. Even their sex life was not hidden from Mama Simi. We knew the marriage wouldn’t last and warned Dr Sid but his mum prodded him to go ahead. She even said family members were jealous of her son who was marrying from a rich family,” another family source revealed.
Meanwhile, the musician, whohas not been doing fantastically well in his career is said to have suffered from stroke lately.
“He survived it but he is recuperating. We pray he gets well and gets back on his feet again. He needs to work and make ends meet. The separation really hit him and must have caused depression,” sources said.
