Carllie Taggett, an American woman, has filed for divorce from popular Nollywood actor Jim Iyke. The US lady, who claimed to be legally married to the actor, presented evidence of her marriage certificate to the actor, claiming that their union is still legally binding under US law. She also accused him of abandoning her and their marriage without formally dissolving it.
“It has been a pain I bore all these years, I have tried to be reasonable to understand why he abandoned our marriage without a divorce, but he has been evading me, that is why I decided to call his attention, pending when he decides to be reasonable or face the consequences of his actions in marriage court in the US,” she said.
“All I have always asked is for Jim Iyke to be a man and come out to give me a divorce so that I can move on with my life because it is impossible to be remarried while my marriage to him is yet to be dissolved through a legal process.
“Let me reiterate the point that no one is against him, I just want him to voluntarily come to divorce proceedings or he can take the initiative of coming out for us to settle outside of divorce court if he is serious about it”, she added.
