Fancy Acholonu, ex-fiancée to Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo has finally spoken up after a year on her sudden breakup with the actor.
The entrepreneur took to her Instagram page to clear the air regarding their split as well as Ekubo’s sexuality which was misconstrued from her breakup statement.
Acholonu revealed that their 5-years relationship ended as a result of the movie star’s betrayal, of which she has forgiven.
“I want to clear the air the statement I made to the public regarding the demise of my engagement with Alexx, during an emotional state of mind, I announced that I ended things, in hindsight that detail wasn’t necessary to be revealed because it only complicated things more,” she wrote.
“I felt betrayed by Alexx in private but I didn’t have to release a statement to the public so I want to apologize to him and everyone that was affected by my emotional reaction.”
Acholonu explained what her then statement on ”living your truth” meant as many people assumed she was referring to Ekubo being gay, a rumor that has lingered around him for several years.
“I also want to clear the air regarding the context of my statement. In the 5 sentences I wrote the highlighted part that was all over the media was “live in your truth”. I never said Alexx should live in his truth. The sentence I wrote in full was ”Everyone should find their happiness and live in “their” truth,” she added.
Although she did not reveal the specific reason for their split, she stated that she forgave the movie star for his actions, and him, for her hasty reactions and they were both at peace.
In addition, Acholonu stated that she was revisiting the topic after a year because she needed time and strength to heal from their split.
The former couple alias Falexx announced their engagement in May 2021 and released wedding dates and venues for their ceremony a few days later.
However, their 5-year love story came crumbling in August of the same year when Acholonu confirmed their breakup via an Instagram post.
“Hey guys, I am writing to inform you all officially that I have ended my relationship and engagement and I have called off the wedding with Alexx Ekubo. I am aware this may be a shock to many people. I made the best decision for myself, because it is important that everyone finds happiness and live in their truth. At this time, my family and I ask for you all to please respect our privacy. Thank you so much.” she wrote at that time.
Ekubo has remained silent concerning their separation.
