Nollywood actress, Lilian Esoro, whose estranged husband, Ubi Franklin turned a year older today, took to Instagram to wish the father of her child a happy birthday in her own ‘unique way’.
The photo shared on her Instalive came with this caption;
‘Happy birthday guy. More blessings’
Recall that a filmmaker and close friend to Lilian Esoro, who pleaded anonymity sometime in 2016 revealed what led to her failed marriage of Ubi Franklin to the actress.
According to the source, the Popular TV series actress always complained about how distanced her husband was. “He never showed up in any of her filming location and this was often a thing of worry for Lilian” he said.
Other reports claimed infidelity and physical abuse as other reasons their wedding packed up 4 months ago, immediately their son Jayden was born. Recall that words once emerged on the street saying Lilian wanted to marry another Nollywood actor who is now married, but opted for Ubi who was a backup plan from the start. And their marriage is said to be loveless from the beginning.
Another claim alleged that Ubi Franklin wasn’t even plan B as she has always been the girlfriend of a very successful comedian. However, Entertainment commentators say Lilian Esoro said no when Ubi Franklin initially proposed but he did all he can to convince her including her family as he was overly generous to them.
These all came up after the couple arrived at Headies 2016 Awards separately, and left separately. Recall also that on 2016’s Christmas day, Lilian Esoro posted a picture of herself and their baby on social media with Ubi Franklin conspicuously missing.
She also went ahead to remove “Franklin” from her name, which showed she might not be interested in reuniting with the father of her son anytime soon.
