Popular Kenyan actress Catherine Kamau, widely known as Kate Actress, has firmly denied recent claims that her son chose to live with his stepfather, Philip Karanja, also known as Phil the Director, following the couple’s separation. The news of their separation made headlines when the celebrity duo announced it on Tuesday.
In a joint statement, Kate Actress and Phil expressed their commitment to maintaining a cordial relationship, both personally and professionally, as they continue to co-parent their children. However, a rumor surfaced, propagated by a blogger, suggesting that Kate’s son had decided to reside with Phil while she looked after their daughter.
Kate Actress swiftly refuted these claims, labeling them as “rubbish.” The actress has been open about her personal life and expressed that her son’s well-being remains a priority for her.
The couple’s separation had already garnered significant attention, with many expressing their support for the pair as they navigate this new chapter in their lives. In their initial announcement, Kate and Phil revealed that they had reached an amicable decision to end their marriage, emphasizing that this had not been a secret but a mature choice they had made.
On a lighter note, some on social media speculated that the separation might be a playful stunt for publicity. This speculation arose after Phil’s close friend and business associate, Abel Mutua, made a witty Instagram post, humorously suggesting that their separation was due to “vehicular differences” as Phil owned a BMW.
Both Kate Actress and Phil responded to Abel’s humorous post with laugh emojis, indicating that despite the separation, they share a friendly and lighthearted relationship.
