Mabel Makun the estranged wife of comedian, Ayo Makun has confirmed that her marriage to the actor and movie producer otherwise known as AY has ended.

An interior decorator, Mabel, revealed this in a statement on her Instagram page.

On Sunday, The Street Journal had reported that AY confirmed on his Instagram page that his twenty-year marriage was on the brink of collapse.

Confirmng the collapse of her marriage, she wrote: “I want to express my sincere gratitude for the supportive messages I have received from everyone. However, my silence should not be misunderstood. Also, the father of my children, whom I have been with for some years, deserves respect and privacy from me and all the concerned parties.

“Most importantly, because of our children whose mental health and general well-being should be prioritised. Many lies have been peddled against me and attacks orchestrated on the social media space, but | I will honour my kids with my silence and not address any of these lies.”

“Although my dreams of a lifelong marriage has taken a different direction now, I’m committed to moving forward with grace and resilience. I have faith in a brighter future for both myself and the children. Despite the rumors or opinions, I find comfort in the belief that all will be well.

“While it’s unexpected for things to end this way, I quietly ask for guidance from my faith as I step into this new chapter of life. Also as we navigate this change,I ask for your help in creating an atmosphere of respect and understanding. This is a challenging period, and I ask for privacy and consideration as we (my ex-husband and I) find our own path forward.

“I wish him the very best in his journey as well. God bless us all.”

It is the third time the couple would make headlines in eight years. In February 2016, reports emerged that Mabel moved out of their Lekki residence for undisclosed reasons.

However, the couple who wedded in 2008 denied the rumours in a joint statement.

On 12 June 2017, a controversy trailed the marriage after Mabel urged a well-known Lagos socialite, Freda Francis to maintain distance from her husband.
