Former Big Brother Naija season 6 housemate and actor, Pere Egbi has finally opened up about his failed marriage.
In a recent interview with media personality Toke Makinwa on her podcast, “Toke Moments,” Pere revealed that he got married at age 25, but the marriage only lasted one year.
Speaking on how he met his ex-wife, Pere said he met her through a friend at a party when he recently moved to the United States, and they exchanged numbers.
He said on their first official date, only a few days after they met, they went on their first official date and had intercourse.
He said after that they’d usually make out in his car because he didn’t have a place of his own at that time.
“I married at 25 for a year plus it was $xx on a first date thing and I had just moved to America and we were having $xx in my car cause I didn’t have my own space. Our relationship was $xxual thing. I got introduced to her by my friend and that’s how we met.
On the third day, we saw physically and we had our first $xx. We went out for dinner and $xxual sparks started flying, we got a room and we did it.” He narrated.

In 2021, Pere’s management team debunked claims that he was violent to his ex-wife in his previous marriage.
Recall that a tweep had shared a tweet alleging that Pere once assaulted his ex-wife till she had a miscarriage.
In a statement shared on his Instagram page, Pere’s handlers stated that the reality TV star has never been violent all his life.
The statement read;
“Over the past week, a number of media outlets published materials containing false allegations that aim to damage the reputation of Pere.
In those publications, he was falsely accused of being abusive in his personal life. They attached a false image of an individual just to make their case look legit. The said materials make baseless speculations as to who Pere is as an individual.
Pere has never been violent all his life and the image being portrayed was a picture with his friend, a colleague who’s happily married. These types of false information do not affect Pere alone but the innocent friend who’s just showing support to him.”
