Leo Mezie and Wife Divorce
In July 2010, Leo Mezie married his ex-wife, former banker Maureen Chimezie Onyemachi.
Remember how Maureen once admitted to nearly abandoning her sick husband, Leo Mezie, under duress?
The actor was misdiagnosed with malaria, typhoid, and pneumonia for nearly a year, and the medications caused his kidneys to fail.
Before returning to Nigeria last month, he was hospitalized to a London hospital and stayed there for several months.
When he was critically ill and away, Maureen says she went through a lot.
Leo Mezie’s wife Maureen said in an interview,
“I had mixed- feelings, and I told God I did not want to become a widow at this age.
“I asked God to give me an assurance that he will keep my husband and sometimes fear, uncertain, so many feelings that I still can’t explain passed through my mind.
“The feeling was one of God, you can’t take him now, please show mercy. Sometimes, I was unable to figure out what was really happening.
“I tried hard to understand the situation and looking for answers that I just couldn’t find or figure out. But the only place I had in mind to take him to was God.
“Sometimes I doubted God when the illness became very serious. I started asking myself if really God assured me, you know. But each time I prayed, I felt renewed and stronger. I felt this kind of peace that Leonard will be just fine.
“Like I said that I needed an assurance from God that Leo will make it; you know what I did? I created more time to pray for him and myself. I got the assurance that he will live.
“I never thought of remarrying because, at that point, that was not what was on my mind. That would have distracted me and made me pay less attention to him.
“I never gave up on Leo, even though due to frustration he became harsh and unfriendly to me most of the time but I knew that wasn’t him; that was frustration.
“I must confess to you, some people advised me to abandon him and go and start a new life since I still have a long way to go.
“His handsomeness, complexion at this time were all gone. He was a shadow of himself. So, to them, what was I still doing with him?
“But, to me, that was not an option neither was it the reason I married him. I never headed their advice. Instead I was ready to fight the battle. My dear, it was tough, very tough,”
