Ex-BBA contestant, Prezzo officially divorced! Wife cites cheating, assault, drug abuse

Controversial Kenyan rapper and self-styled King of
Bling, CMB Prezzo, is now officially a divorcee.
The High Court in Nairobi has
allowed a divorce case filed by his wife Daisy Jematia Kiplagat and ordered
that the marriage be dissolved.
Daisy filed the case seeking divorce
in May 2012 but Prezzo (Jackson Makini) did not defend it. High Court Judge
Luka Kimaru granted Daisy’s application and ordered Prezzo to pay a monthly
upkeep of Sh50,000 for the baby born in March 2009.
“The petitioner and the respondent
have been separated since November 2011. For the above reasons, this court has
no option but to annul the marriage,” said Justice Kimaru.
Daisy accused Prezzo of committing
adultery and physical abuse on her. The couple solemnised their marriage on
December 2008 at Karen Country Lodge. But the couple have lived separately
since November 2011.
“It is clear that indeed the marriage between the
Petitioner (Daisy) and the respondent ( Prezzo) has irretrievably broken down,”
said Judge Kimaru.
The judge said the instances of
cruelty cited by Daisy are not conducive for the health of a successful
Daisy told the court in her evidence
that Prezzo had committed adultery with various women and particularly a former
model, Joy Wanjohi.
Prezzo had also been verbally
abusive causing her mental stress and anxiety. He physically abused her and
failed to abide by his financial responsibilities.
Other allegations raised by Daisy
against her former husband were that he drinks alcohol heavily and consumes
narcotic drugs almost on a daily basis after which he subjects her to verbal
and physical abuse.
Prezzo purportedly invited his
friends to their matrimonial home where they consumed the drugs and alcohol in
front of her and the child, Daisy told the court.
Daisy said Prezzo had left her to
bring up the child on her own preferring to be out with his friends drinking
and taking drugs. She had to resort to requesting her parents for financial
help to pay for the upkeep of the child, medical and education costs.
When she filed the divorce, Daisy
said Prezzo was living at his mother’s house after a verbal confrontation
between them. She says Prezzo left their matrimonial home and after a week, she
saw an article in the newspapers that he is in a relationship with Joy Wanjohi.
In January 2012, Prezzo gave an
interview to The Standard where he spoke on his troubled marriage, his love
affair with former model Joy Wanjohi and his two-year old baby. During the
interview, the rapper was accompanied by Joy.
Prezzo represented Kenya in the Big
Brother House in 2012 and set off an affair with the late Nigerian housemate
Goldie Harvey.

Goldie died in Lagos on February 14
after a short illness.
