After seven years of marriage, Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz have divorced.
After seven years of marriage, Nigerian actress Funke Akindele Bello and her husband Abdul Bello, commonly known as JJC Skillz, have divorced.
Today, June 30, 2022, JJC announced the news in a post on his verified Instagram page, revealing that they have been experiencing marriage crises for the previous two years.
He, however, said that they are now trying to sort out co-parenting for their two children.
The singer and producer wrote; ”Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted we shared a lot of things together and have created 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us.
I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. 3 months ago and at Funkes insistence I moved out of the house and apart from AMVCA have not been able to get Funke to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship. I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives.
We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other”.
The couple got married in May 2016.
