Actress and entrepreneur Catherine Kamau, popularly known as Kate Actress, has confirmed that she and her partner, who is a video director, Phil Karanja, are no longer in a romantic relationship.
Kate made this revelation through her Instagram stories, where she posted a message confirming the breakup. She stated that they had actually separated a while ago but had agreed to keep it low-key to address certain issues.
She uploaded a message that was jointly attributed to both her and Phil, asking their fans to accept their decision that things did not work out.
“We reached the decision to break our marriage a while ago, and we separated. We sincerely ask everyone to respect our decision for the sake of our private lives but also for the sake of our children,” the short message read.
It will be remembered that a few weeks after being appointed as a member of the Talanta Hela council by Minister Ababu Namwamba, some fans speculated that Kate Actress seemed to be distancing herself from her partner Phil Karanja. However, these rumors had already faded before coming to light.
Now, Kate has confirmed that the rumors of their separation were indeed true but emphasized that they kept it a secret to straighten out certain aspects of their careers, and now it’s the right time to reveal that they are no longer together.
“It wasn’t a secret; it’s true we broke up a while ago. We decided to keep it private. To all our fans, thank you so much for supporting us throughout these years,” Kate said.
Catherine Kamau, known as Kate Actress, has been married to Phillip Karanja (commonly known as Phil or Melvin), a film director and former actor from Tahidi High, since November 17, 2017.
Their honeymoon was celebrated in the Seychelles.
