Marie Sock has dumped her Nigerian boyfriend, JJ Robinson to marry a Gambian as she prepares to run for president in December.  

"She's now using two last names, Sock-Jobarteh," said a source.  

Marie, who was once married while living in the USA, is the first woman to announce her candidacy for the upcoming presidential elections.  

When contacted, her Facebook admin refused to confirm or deny that the challenger to President Adama Barrow tied the knot with a Gambian. 

"We're sorry we are not privy to give out info on madam's personal life but will forward the message to her."  

In an interview with Standard Newspaper last year, Marie revealed that her first marriage was very abusive and toxic.  

"It was an abusive marriage and I don’t encourage any woman to be in an abusive marriage. But out of the marriage, I had beautiful children," she said. 

The presidential aspirant's eldest child is now 32 years old.
