She “destroyed the harmony” of their marriage “through her abject behaviour,” according to court filings from his home Cameroon. Her “repeated lies” are also mentioned, and they add, “No children have been born from this union.”

Their motivation for marriage stemmed from her claims that the twins born in June 2008, four years prior to their marriage, were his. The shocking news has since then left Geremy heartbroken and has psychologically damaged him. The two had been in a relationship since 16 years.
