Eze filed for divorce from his wife Linda Iruke last year and now reveals to TMZ in a video clip that he hasn’t seen her and their two children since then. He claims Iruke abducted their kids and vanished. None of her friends and family have been in contact with her for a year.

"We all want the kids to be safe. We all want the kids to be home."

Eze requested for the assistance of the LA County D.A.’s office which affirmed that there is a reason to believe the children have been “taken, detained, and concealed.” His petition is supported by Iruke’s mother who’s also worried about her missing family. An investigation led by the LA county has begun.

The 2008 “American Idol” tenth placer was married to Iruke for almost seven years. In 2017, his missing wife reported that she was forced to move out of their home due to Eke’s abuse. By March 2018, she was granted a restraining order after she claimed her husband threatened to “turn this car around and beat your [a**].” Eke filed for divorce in May 2018 citing irreconcilable differences.

In an interview with TMZ, Eze tearfully expressed how much he missed his son who celebrated his birthday.

"Happy birthday, big guy. Daddy loves you. Grandpa and Grandma love you, too. Everybody is thinking about you every single day, and we're going to see you soon, okay? We're going to see you soon."

He also asked for the help of the public in locating his children. He says he and Iruke’s family have a common goal.

"We all want the kids to be safe. We all want the kids to be home."

For information about Eze’s children, the public is encouraged to call the LA District Attorney’s child abduction unit number, 213-257-2600.
