Uche Jombo’s husband cheating scandal
There were rumours in July 2017 that Uche Jombo’s marriage has crashed, following leaked photos of Kenney Rodriguez in a compromising position with a 22-year-old young American woman, alleged to be his ex.
The pictures of Kenney Rodriguez and the 22-year-old American lady named Teresa were allegedly taken in the same house Kenney shares with Uche whenever she visits the United States.
Though the actress took to her social media to loudly reproach Nigerian bloggers for spreading fake news about her marriage, the two intriguing events that took place a few days after the scandal only intensified the speculation. An empty IG account claiming to be Kenney Rodriguez had posted a picture with a long apology to Uche for “the foolishness and speculation” in the media.
A colleague and close friend of Uche, Omoni Oboli also posted a picture of the couple who were supposedly going on a vacation to Canada. She then tagged the Kenney account on the picture.
These events made people speculate that the IG account was fake and that Uche Jombo had created the account apologising to herself, while her friend, Omoni, tried to make the account more believable by interacting with it.
Uche Jombo’s marriage at present
While Uche Jombo’s marriage to Kenney Rodriguez seems to be peaceful at the moment, nobody actually knows the true state of things between the couple.

The 42-year-old actress appears to be sticking to a new vow she made about never posting anything relating to her personal life on social media again.
