Wumi Toriola, a Nollywood actress, has finally talked up about her three-year marriage’s demise after months of confirming it.
In an interview with her colleague, Debbie Shokoya, the movie producer described how her now ex-husband used her game against her.
She revealed that she had married a young man and that their lives were about to begin. She went on to say that she believed in making things work, but her husband never gave her the chance since he always put her fame in her face.
Her husband, she claims, was always threatening her with her celebrity, using it to keep her stuck in the marriage until she decided to leave.
They are now good co-parents, but they could have been great friends because he is so invested in his son’s life.
Wumi added that it got to a point in her marriage, when she called the media outlet, Punch Newspaper, to announce her separation but she kicked against it.
Following her divorce, she has channeled her energy into her son and making movies.
“I got married to a young man, we had our lives coming up. I used to believe we could work things out but at a point when you have issues in marriage and keep letting you feel your celebrity status is on the rock. Things that would have been settled.
Me and my ex co-parent on a good note. He is 100% involved in his child as of today.
I even realized that the co-parenting is going better, we could have even ended up being friends.
There was a point when I called Punch newspaper for an interview, I was still married then and I wanted to break the news to them, but I still slowed down.
At some point when my marriage failed, I just put all my energy into my movie and that’s what I am reaping today. My mental health was a mess then but I channeled the energy into my movies”.
