Morales said she had delayed disclosing her separation from the movie star because she “was weak,” “could not think straight,” and was “struggling to make things work in ways beyond her capacity”.
“I, Sonia, am officially and fully out of marriage. My ex-husband and I have parted our ways for good. This is a hard letter to write as I am pretty sure I will cry my way through this post,” she wrote.
“I know I should have said all these a long time ago, but back then, I was just weak and could not think straight because I was busy struggling to make things right the best possible way within and even beyond my capacities.
“I felt deflated for many years and now it’s all gone. In the past, I had blogged about stuff as it comes up, but no real goodbyes yet. Many times I felt miserable on the inside and cried my life out day and night in my room alone.
“As time went on, I outgrew the reality I was passing through. I want to use this medium to thank my ex-husband for not prolonging the hardship and now I have to face the world on my own. Our son will forever be a representation of you in my life.
“Thank you for the lessons you taught me over the years. I wasn’t sure what to write, who to write to or what my angle would be. But I know who I need to say goodbye to now with certainty. Lastly, without hate or animosity, I look back at the past five years and all I can do is thank you. Thank you for the good times, for the hard times. Thank you for helping to shape the strong person I am today and for being a part of my life for a small slice of time.”
Sonia’s statement comes after Ogbonna had severally refuted claims about their marriage hitting the rock. He also said he warned his parents never to get involved in talks regarding his marriage for fear of ruining it.

In April, Ogbonna had resorted to filing a lawsuit after a US-based Instagram user who had accused him of secretly “running after Nollywood actors” in gay relationships despite being married.
