Renowned actors Kate Actress and Philip Karanja, popularly known as Phil Director, have made the decision to end their marriage after spending several years together.
In a joint statement released on Tuesday, the couple revealed that they had actually separated some time ago. They have requested that their privacy be respected, particularly for the well-being of their children.
“We reached the conclusion to end our marriage a significant while back, and we are now living apart. We sincerely appeal to everyone to respect our request for privacy for ourselves and, most importantly, for the sake of our children,” the statement read.
Phil responded to the situation by emphasizing that they intend to remain friends and continue their business collaborations.
“While this is a matter between the two of us, please allow us to involve you briefly so that we can move on with our lives without too much fuss. Kate Actress and I will continue to be friends, co-parents, and business associates,” he stated.
The couple, who exchanged vows in a private ceremony attended by close friends and family in November 2017, had faced rumors of their separation earlier this year. Kate Actress had initially removed pictures of Phil from her social media accounts, leading to confusion among her fans. However, she later clarified the status of their marriage through an Instagram story, sharing videos of them enjoying each other’s company at an event, reaffirming that their relationship remained amicable and supportive.
