Publisher advise celebrities to stop living their lives on social media

14 October 2014, 21:30

Lagos- Publisher of Genevieve Magazine, Betty Irabor, has advised the nation’s show biz celebrities to manage their marriages well, by shunning undue media scrutiny.

Irabor, who is also the founder of ‘The Pink Ball Cancer Benefit’, said celebrities should strive to keep their union private.

She also advised Nigerian celebrities to stop living their lives on social media.

"Celebrity couples should stop living their lives on twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It’s okay in the real world for couples to disagree”, Irabor wrote.

She further tweeted: "The media puts too much pressure on celebrities and their private lives, no wonder celebrity marriages are crumbling like a pack of cards. But if celebrity couples are true to themselves and are not playing out a script, they can make their marriages work, regardless. The media is too harsh on celebrities! Celebrity couples sometimes deserve what they get when all they do is take each other to the cleaners on the social media. Marriage is for grown-ups, "she said

Irabor and her husband, veteran broadcaster, Soni Irabor had this July celebrated their 31st marriage anniversary.
