Recall that last weekend, Saturday, October 29, the shocking pictures of a distressed bride fleeing her wedding reception went viral.
The bride, who had already said ‘I do’ to her to her 41-year-old groom simply identified as Julius, decided to dump him at their wedding reception in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, saying “I am no longer interested,” and forcing the wedding reception to end abruptly.
She refused to listen to pleas by her confused husband, guests and bridal train who met up with her at the popular Orhunwhorhun Road.
Just this morning, details of what took place on that fateful day surfaced on Vanguard. According to the news media, the woman’s close friend revealed that the bride saw her true love at the reception venue and decided to follow her heartthrob.
The report said:
“The would-be bride, Roseline, 32, has since disappeared into thin air and all efforts to trace her whereabouts had yielded no result at press time.”
A close female confidante of the woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Vanguard:
“I believe she did what she did because she saw the previous man in her life at the reception. We heard that he had earlier promised to marry the bride, but he later travelled to Lagos and never showed up again.
“When the bride waited for a long time and he (former suitor) was nowhere to be found, she decided to marry another man, who was ready although she still loved her former suitor.
“So when her true love showed up at the reception without notice, the woman saw him and decided to call it quits with her husband to follow her heartthrob.”
