Was Ogbonna ever married?
Few years ago, Ogbonna, who also played football in England, was a guy any woman would love to have as a lover because of his pocket. Ogbonna had also stint with the Super Eagles of Nigeria. In 2013, it was reported that the handsome ex-footballer lost some of his assets to a British lover who bore him two children. The embittered lover took Ogbonna to court over an alleged infidelity claim, which made him to lose some of his savings to the woman. He was said to have become broke after the unfortunate loss of his properties to the mother of his children. It was also reported that Ogbonna pleaded with some of his family members to beg his elder brother on his behalf to help him rise again after Kanu allegedly ignored him during his ordeal. As we learnt from the report, Kanu had earlier warned Ogbonna to stop his affair with the British woman and settle for a Nigerian lady, but the love-drunk Ogbonna allegedly threw the advice of his older sibling into the gutter.
He later dated Nollywood actress, Ebube Nwagbo but the affair crashed.
He started dating Linda Ikeji’s sister and they got engaged in December 2016.He got married to Laura at the Ikoyi Registry on January 2017.
