"We parted ways over irreconcilable differences. We were incompatible. At a point, being in the marriage became life threatening. If I was still in it, my enemy may have been dead by now, all in the name of trying to make it work and to avoid what people will say. I had to cancel the wedding in America because here in Nigeria where my family and his family are, there were verbal and domestic abuse. Going to a foreign land where I knew no one would have been worse. So, there was no need for the American wedding since it was already failing in Nigeria."Chima's friends alleged that Juliet cancelled the wedding not because she was abused in the short-lived marriage but because she found out Chima wasn't as rich as he claimed. Juliet says the allegation is completely false.
I didn't marry him for money and I don't know where people got that perception from. Maybe because I am an attractive lady, people assume I will only date for money but that's not true. What matters to me is love. If I was going to get married because of money, I would have been married to other men far richer than Chima long ago. But I turned down a lot of offers because I wanted to love and be loved. I am comfortable with the money I make from my job, so money wasn't the deciding factor in that marriage.
