Nollywood actor Jim Iyke recently surprised his fans by revealing that apart from having children with different women, he had a failed secret marriage. Speaking on the TeaTalk Podcast with Toke Makinwa on October 28, 2023, the Nollywood bad boy disclosed that he is not the eligible bachelor that many people have always thought he was. Instead, he is a divorced man who has kept his marital status hidden from the public eye. So, contrary to popular belief, Jim Iyke was womanizing for years, it turned out he was not but was, in fact, in a committed relationship with a woman he deeply loved. They eventually got married and had a son together.
However, the passing of his beloved mother resulted in the marriage falling apart. Since Jim Iyke came into the limelight, he has sparked rumours of romantic relationships with several beautiful women, including Ghanaian finest Nadia Buhari and now happily married Nollywood diva Rita Dominic. But as we all know, none of these relationships ended on the altar, further spreading speculations that the 47-year-old actor was a sworn bachelor for life. Later on, the speculations changed following this video of the late TB Joshua conducting a deliverance on Jim Iyke back in September of 2013.
Rumour immediately had it that the talented actor was possessed by an evil spirit preventing him from finding a wife. But it looks like the Bad Comments Star actor played his fans and got married quietly, but sadly, it ended the same way. Who is the woman Jim Iyke got married to? Why did the marriage crash? Is our favourite Nollywood bad boy open to giving love and marriage another chance, or is he done and dusted?
