Redvigor Was Blossom Chukwujekwu’s Wife for Four Years
For the longest time, fans wondered who Redvigor was involved with. It was a huge delight to her fans when news of her relationship with Blossom Chukwujekwu first hit the Internet. Maureen who has always loved the attention of the media spilled the beans herself. She had confessed to initiating the first contact between them; as she sent him a direct message after she noticed that he liked a couple of her pictures.

They Split in 2019 in a Chaotic Divorce
Fans of Maureen Esisi and Blossom Chukwujekwu were in dismay by the news that they were no longer together. Their divorce wasn’t an easy one, they had problems just like every other couple but from the look of things, the fashion entrepreneur didn’t see the divorce coming. According to reports, Blossom had opted out of the marriage but didn’t pass the information to his wife; he rather told her father who then broke the news to her.
At the time Maureen found out, Blossom had also moved out of their matrimonial home. Maureen interacted with the media and spoke to some sources too. This was when she revealed a lot of unpleasant information about her marriage. She had pointed accusing fingers at Blossom on grounds of domestic violence and infidelity.
The brand influencer inferred all these as well as countered Blossom’s reported claims of infidelity on her part. She also revealed that her ex never wanted kids, which was another reason for their separation. Maureen Esisi continued to spill more information about her failed marriage even after her ex-husband Blossom got married a second time, to his new wife Winifred Akhuemokhan.

The Couple Did Not have any Kids Together
Maureen Esisi never had any kids in her four-year marriage to Blossom nor did she have any before getting married. A lot of rumors have been flying around on the internet about this since they got married in 2015. The confusion is however understandable; Redvigor wished herself ‘happy mothers day’ on a certain occasion.
So many sources did not hesitate to run with the information as it was a juicy one. However, Maureen in fact wished herself happy mothers day as a woman that hopes to one day enjoy motherhood. She had also said that she would have had two kids if her marriage had worked.
The Brand Influencer Has Bounced Back after the Ugly Break-Up Saga
The difficult divorce indeed took its toll on her, but she has evidently healed. The occasional emotional outbursts on social media have died down and she seems to be pulling herself together again. Redvigor currently isn’t involved romantically with anybody.
She has emphasized that she is channeling all her energy into her business and into growing her page as a brand influencer. She had been off and on with her brand while the entire divorce drama had taken over her life.
But it seems the fashion entrepreneur is back in business after rediscovering herself. Maureen is fully back with her influencing business as evidently seen on her Instagram page. Although this has not been confirmed, sources report that she has reopened her fashion house after it had been closed for a long while.
