Philip in an interview with us said that he has divorced you formally?

Big deal, I can't remember asking him neither was i there to know what he did. All i know is that I'm single and still surviving without him.

Where you really divorced on the ground of infidelity? He also said that you moved in with a male partner who was responsible for your pregnancy.

Not at all. Of all that Philips Ehiagwina has done to me, this is the most hurtful. Even as I remember laying on that hospital bed, going through miscarriage, watching the pieces of our unborn child, flush away due to his negligence & infidelity. A child that i wanted badly after battling cancer. For him to deny his own & claim otherwise, I'm certain he will never know peace, joy or the happiness of a father. I know I'm not God, neither is it a course. He can call me names, and speak all manner of lies against me but for him to go that far, is unthinkable.

I left Nigeria for my base on the 18th of may,208 on the 15th same month he called my nig line requesting to have a meeting with me. I declined, he had his siblings call me knowing I will not dishonour their invitation. He asked that we be friends again & leave all this behind us and he apologised to me before his family, mine and i for neglecting me when I was pregnant with his unborn baby. I gave him an automaton, to confess all. He couldn't face it as usual, so I bluntly refused his request & walked out of the meeting. Here he is emanating all this lies out of frustration. Why wait till now?

When his niece died, her husband was blamed completely for causing her death by treating her badly. He blamed him the most with hatred, but then it was very alright for the same Philips to treat someone else's daughter the same way with no conscience. When he was given any opportunity to repent, what did he do? Cooked up lies against me to cover all his wrongs. How evil can a man be.

He said he showed you love when you where living together, true?

Yes he showed a lot of concern when I was diagnosed with cancer I never disputed that. But was it genuine or because he had nothing to fall back on should anything happen to me? He arrived in NYC with a few T-shirts & pants, no money, he even borrowed to buy his ticket. I came to the realization that he did it because he had nothing to hold onto, and he confessed it. He had NO JOB AUTHORIZATION, NO GREENCARD, NO SOCIAL SECURITY, NO PROOF OF RESIDENCE. Not even a certificate to help him get a job. All he did was to spend repeated years in Edo state studying, NO not medicine, not engineering, non of that but FRENCH with a horrible result. He confessed with his own mouth how he deceived me into marrying him to obtain his green card. Not only was I told but also heard it with my own ears with proves. How can someone confess what is not true with his own mouth when he wasn't forced and why would I not believe what I heard from the horses mouth.

He said you were sleeping with his friends.

Was that all he insinuated? Wow! I'm surprised. Coming from a man who has said all manner of evil concerning the woman who once meant the world to him. I should have expected him to also insinuate that I had something of a physical nature with not only friends of his but family members, well wishers, even strangers as well. Its not his fault HE'S DESPERATE FOR FAME & FRUSTRATED.

Where you striping in a US. Night club?

NO, never have never will. He probably wish I was but I wasn't raised that way. Maybe he mistaken me for one of his mistresses.

He also said you are a fake model, what is the truth?

Really? what won't he say! Well I see the word MODEL, I'll take it…laughs! by the grace of God designers still think im hot & good enough to model. So does he wish he never left this epitome of beauty who now looks better than he could have ever imagined. Laughs!

Philip said that he brought you up and paid your bills

Lol! guess he's better than Santa Claus huh! With the little tip he was making while living with his brother and helping him send young, innocent girls to Italy for prostitution, before he came into my life & became born again in quote? Or is he claiming to be my father & not a devil who deceived me for 10yrs? Well, whatever it is, time will tell. What responsible man will say things as dump as that? Even if he did buy me stuff once in a while of course, as my man, would he come out so cheaply with no pride and dignity reserved for a man? Gosh!!! hopefully every audio, pictures and other proofs necessary, including letters from him ETC, will be showed to the public, when I visit to prove how honest he is. Since that's the way he wants it.

He said you wrote Ini Edo mail with a pen name, Christel.

True. My nick name that most of my friends call me. I wrote her in 2007 when I heard she was sleeping around with a man I was still legally married to at the time, Philips Ehi Ehiagwina for yrs and had invested all I had on, so we could build our lives together. Unfortunately I had vowed to marry him for better or for worse and besides, I didn't care IF she ini edo had been sleeping with other married men, or how many she had slept with and got away, all I cared about was my marriage and the 10yrs I put into his life. I wasn't gonna seat and watch another woman reap from where she did not sow, cancer or not. I didn't fight because he deserved it, but because of the marital vows. Now my conscience is clear because I did what I had to do but he had his mind made up when he walked out of my life thinking i will not live to tell my story.

He talked about you forging his signature to file for taxes?

I didn't have to. He needs to get his facts straight, since I brought Philips to the united states, I've been filing my taxes with his name on it as a married couple, even when he had no job. All my tax agent had to do was pull up my account and I filled in our names. If they was any sign that we were divorced when I filed my taxes, it would have showed my entry as divorce being that we both have social security numbers. At least to the best of my knowledge.

He also mentioned the FBI?

Talking about FBI, I hope he has also informed them of the information we got recently through a source well known to him, who accused him of lying to me when I was going through chemotherapy in NYC, family members and even the police in 2004, when he was shot by an unknown gunman in Houston Texas, got a free medical attention, few months after he arrived in the states and gave us and the police false report, hiding the real fact to why he was shot. I personally had a lot of unanswered questions and doubts because of his unpredicted character and the desperation to make money when i was indisposed. but i hope to get answers myself. we'll all findout together soon. Love is blind they say. i choose to overlook all his mistakes and stood by him anyway. Philips knows his most deepest and darkest secrets which i had promised not to discuss. but it seems his pushing me to the wall, sooner or latter he will leave me with no option but to let it all out. Yes I'm extremely hurt by all he did to me, i'm human!. I'm trying so hard to condone myself and put it aside and move on with my life. but he wouldn't let me.
