The Institution of marriage is sacred, powerful and divine. This God-ordained institution exemplifies the power of Agreement in its truest sense. Perhaps it's the reason it's under the most attacks by the devil. I don't mean to sound preachy but this bears mention.

It was just recently the news of the Osinachi incident went viral and now this.

This recent separation has led the Hollywood Star on a downward spiral that she's being advised to go in for counselling by her team who fears she's in a bad place at the moment.

Due to the resultant stress levels, she's going through, she had fired her UK agent of 30 years which led her US agent to come and see how to help calm her down.

The Star was recently involved in a row with Channing Tantum who was her Co-star on Magic Mike's Last dance which led her to be replaced by 55-year-old Salma Hayek.

The couple got married in 1998 and her husband, Ol Parker, is best known for the file 2018 film he directed which was 'Mamma Mia! Here we go again.'

Thandiwe Newton formerly known by her professional name as 'Thandie Newton' decided to correct the name change last year after being known by the said name (Thandie Newton) for 30 years due to a misspelt error made in her first movie.

Being married has its challenges which usually transcend the glitz and glamour that's displayed for the world to see. We hope that as Thandiwe Newton decides to seek counselling, she'll come back better and more in control of her spirit, soul and body and be ready to move forward from this recent separation.
