Celebrated actors Kate Actress and Philip Karanja, also known as Phil Director, have officially announced their decision to end their marriage after several years together.
The celebrity couple tied the knot in November 2017 after dating for a period of time.
However, rumors about their separation began circulating in April this year. Kate Actress removed any trace of her spouse from her social media platforms, and her page has since become dedicated to her personal brand.

However, in a joint statement released on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, the couple officially confirmed that they had parted ways some time ago and requested that netizens respect their privacy for the sake of their children.
Kate Actress emphasized that while their relationship was never a secret, it was a matter of privacy.

To all our dear fans, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the support over the years.”
