Eric Omondi and Chantal ended their four-year courtship with Instagram posts.
I blame myself – Eric Omondi on breakup with Chantal
They had been together for 4 years.
Their breakup was met with skepticism as Eric Omondi has been known to pull stunts in the past. In addition, a few days ago he had announced that he was planning an ‘international’ wedding and was pinning his hopes on Kenyans who he expects will contribute Sh80 million for the dowry payment, pre-wedding and main wedding.
However, the diminutive comedian has revealed that their break up is for real-sies this time.
Eric disclosed that he felt like he was a stumbling block to Chantal because in her bid to make their relationship work, she neglected her career. The comedian revealed that Chantal wanted to go to school and join Emirates but put her dreams on pause.
“It has been four and a half years since we started out. Since we seem not to be making any progress. First of all, Chantal is young and I consider myself a bit old. I feel like I have been a stumbling block for her as my career has been progressing yet, as she committed to making this work, hers has been stagnating. She has been ensuring that my brand works but what am I doing for her? It is a long-distance relationship because her family lives in Italy and she only comes here for like six months to visit me. I am not growing any younger,” he told SDE.
Since things were not working as they had hoped they decided to set each other free. “The only solution was for us to set each other free. I was suffocating Chantal… I want her to be free, to get on and discover herself. I want her to make decisions without feeling like I am holding her back. That applies to me too,” Eric said.
The former Churchill Show comedian revealed that if their paths crossed again they can make it work but if their paths never cross again, he is cool with it too. “If our paths collide again, then, well and well. If she finds another man and I find another woman, then so be it. But I want everyone to know that Chantal and I love each other so much and that there are no ill-feelings.”
In a post on Instagram, Chantal confirmed the breakup and said that maintaining a long-distance relationship has been difficult.
“Hello guys, I hope this finds you well I have been silent for a while...Eric and I have had long discussions for the past one month. As you all know my family lives in Italy and it’s been really challenging for both of us. I love Eric and I will always love him and we are okay; we created the best of moments together, we shared our dreams and visions but most importantly we shared our lives. And I will always cherish every single moment. As I write this post I want to ask God to always protect you and your dreams until our paths meet again. I hate goodbyes so it’s not a goodbye its more like a see you later. I will always be here for you ANYTIME, ANY DAY @ericomondi,” read her post.
