Jasmine Okafor, the adopted daughter of veteran actor, John Okafor, has announced her divorce from a UK-based man identified as MD whom she met on TikTok after nine months of marriage.
Jasmine announced this in an Instagram post in the early hours of Monday where she accused him of lying about having kids from a previous relationship.
She added that she has filed for a divorce as she can no longer stay in a marriage built on lies.
She wrote: “This was the best 9 months of my life! I have no regrets whatsoever! I just won’t settle for a lie regardless! I forgive easily, I remember asking you about this severally before we started! Finding out today from your mum, really broke me! A foundation built upon a tiny lie won’t stand! I love how you loved me! But hate how you never mentioned your divorce nor kids to me! Moving on I don’t think I want anybody else! Just gonna love you from a distance!”
In another message, Jasmine added: “My marriage was so beautiful and full of love, my husband literally worshiped me! I don’t know if anyone is ever going to love me as he did! But this one lie! I can’t forgive! I have filed a divorce today! I found out today that he has 3 grown-up girls! 3?
“Never told me he was married and divorced! Yes, he’s divorced, but still doesn’t change anything! I married a single loving husband! I won’t settle for less! I love him so much! I appreciate all the love you showed me! You showed me a different version of love! I appreciate but I can’t settle for a tiny lie! I can’t forget! I won’t forgive! I don’t owe anyone an explanation!! Don’t ever lie about your age for any reason! I love you MD.”
Jasmine announced her engagement to MD in a TikTok video in February 2022.
Speaking on their marriage before the crash, John Okafor in an interview with Punch said: “She is not my biological daughter but I trained her. She calls me daddy and I call her daughter. I am okay with it (her getting married). I have been praying for them and I will keep on doing that. Man and woman got to know each other one day. It is a gradual process. However, I don’t want to see tears.”
