Kenyan celebrity power couple of comedian Eric Omondi and Chantal Grazioli has split.
Pundits claimed that it is a publicity stunt to push some product or get more eyeballs onto their social media.
But the truth is, the relationship is as dead as a dodo.
The comedian showered Chantal with love, wishing her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.
AS YOU MOVE INTO YOUR NEW PHASE IN LIFE WITH OR WITHOUT ME I WANT TO WISH YOU ALL THE BEST MY LOVE❤️…THE PATHS THAT BROUGHT US TOGETHER ARE NOW FACING DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS AND AS YOU MOVE ON IN YOUR PATH I WISH YOU THE BEST LIFE HAS TO OFFER.
The farewell love note by Eric went on to show that they have parted on good terms.
AS YOU FLY AWAY MY LOVE❤️ MAY YOU GLOW, SHINE LIKE THE ANGEL THAT YOU ARE. I WILL MISS YOU? EVERY MOMENT…EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. YOU ARE THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO ME!!!
After the post went up Chantal also clarifed that the parting is mutual.
I LOVE ERIC AND I WILL ALWAYS LOVE HIM AND WE ARE OKAY; WE CREATED THE BEST OF MOMENTS TOGETHER, WE SHARED OUR DREAMS AND VISIONS BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY WE SHARED OUR LIVES. AND I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH EVERY SINGLE MOMENT…
I HATE GOODBYES SO IT’S NOT A GOODBYE ITS MORE LIKE A SEE YOU LATER.
I WILL ALWAYS BE HERE FOR YOU ANYTIME, ANYDAY @ERICOMONDI ?
It turns out that the reason their relationship ended was over finances. Chantal was not a Kenyan citizen and getting a work visa proved to be an uphill task for her.
As such, she decided to leave the country and seek better fortunes in her home country, Italy.
Eric confided this to E Daily;
“SHE RECENTLY ASKED ME IF I CAN ALLOW HER TO PERMANENTLY STAY IN ITALY AND GET FORMAL EMPLOYMENT THERE. AND BECAUSE I HAD SEEN HER STAY IN MY HOUSE DOING NOTHING MEANINGFUL, I SAW IT WISE TO GRANT HER HER REQUEST.”
Chantal echoed this in her social media post saying, “Hello guys, I hope this finds you well I have been silent for a while…Eric and I have had long discussions for the past one month. As you all know my family lives in Italy and its been really challenging for both of us.”
