“I Feel Lonely” – Fred Amata’s Ex-Wife, Agatha Laments
That veteran Nollywood actor, Fred Amata and his ex-wife, Agatha Amata parted ways some years ago is an established fact.
Be that as it may, Agatha, speaking with Chude Jideonwo recently, lamented that her marriage with the movie star crashed because it was not working.
She said; “Till tomorrow, there are people who pray that Fred and I would get back together. I know everyone wishes you well, but I always tell people, you can’t wish me better than I wished myself. It’s not possible.”
“On my wedding day, as I was dancing and rejoicing, I certainly had no plans of leaving the marriage.”
“I don’t think there’s anyone who, on their wedding day, is calculating when they will divorce, except such a person is crazy. But life happens. It is better especially for women when it’s no longer adding, and it starts subtracting.”
“Because then, l had a lot of people saying for the sake of your children, but I’ll say it clearly, an unhappy home can never breed happy children.”
“The best you can do is to try to remain friends as difficult as it may look because of the kids, which was what I tried to do but it didn’t work. I won’t beat myself for the rest of my life. I’m not the first to divorce and I’m not going to be the last.”
“Did both of us try? Yes, we did. It just wasn’t working. And we had two children. There’s nowhere they would mention Fred Amata that they won’t mention me because I have two kids for him and I married him.”
“Being a single mother after the marriage failed made me feel lonely at a point as I have to focus solely on my children.”
“That divorce is why I don’t have any friends. I literally stopped everything and focused on my children because I realised something was missing and even though I can’t make up for it, I would do the best I could. It made me feel lonely.”
For those who don’t know, Fred Amata and Agatha got married in 2005 and the union is blessed with two children.
