Ini Edo had always been a good house wife
according to an alleged insider who told
The insider said: “I think Ini Edo was badly in
love. Philips was a charmer and, as a human
being and deeply in love, she followed her heart.
It is so sad that a woman blessed with such a
good heart could be treated in such a hurtful
manner. Most people may not know, but Ini Edo
is a dedicated and totally committed spouse any
man could hope to have.
That’s why she
endured all she did, for six years without letting
the world know the pain she was going through
in her marriage.
“Most people do not know that Ini Edo gave up a
lot of acting jobs to be with her husband in
America and, unlike the widely peddled story
that the actress was involved in romantic
relationships with other men, for the six years
that Ini was married to Philips, she never
cheated on him. Ini Edo adored and loved
Philips; she was very fond of him, cooked his
meals personally, and was practically splitting
her time between two continents, all in her
efforts to be a good wife, the insider said.
“Ini Edo is very industrious and wanted
combined efforts from her husband to get things
done. Eventually fights began to occur. The last
straw that broke the camel’s back was the
house Ini bought in Lekki, a beautiful edifice.
“Philips wanted it to be a joint property, but Ini
vehemently said no, that she would have none of
that. Philips was said to have threatened to
move out of their home if Ini refused to put his
name on the deed. She stood her grounds and
Philips also made good his threat. He moved out
of the house and took up residence with another
lady in Accra, Ghana which has been his home
for the past six months. All entreaties by family
members for Philips to return home were
rebuffed; he wanted his name on the deed or no
marriage. For three months, Ini Edo did not set
her eyes on her husband and he had started
flaunting his new girlfriend to spite Ini. Scheduled
appointments by her father in-law to resolve the
issue amicably were rebuffed by Philips and ini
“There is no truth to the story that was peddled
that Ini Edo was involved in extra-marital affairs.
It was Philips who actually did not respect the
sanctity of his marital vows. While still legally
married, he left his matrimonial home and
moved in with another lady in Ghana”.
When contacted about the story, Ini told
vanguard reporters , “Ekerete, you were there
when we started dating and eventually got
married. Does anything that has been written
about me, remotely resembles who and what I
am about? I wish Philips the best in life”, she
