Nollywood star, Tonto Dike, broke into tears and wept as she threw light on the circumstances that caused her marriage to crash in an with interview Nigerian media personality, Azuka Ogujiuba.
In the wide-ranging interview, Tonto touched on six key factors which broke apart her marriage to her husband, Oladunni Churchill.
1. Churchill allegedly abandoned Tonto and her son because of Rosaline.
Tonto said: “I am aware of her. I am aware that she is sleeping with my husband. I am aware that my husband is taking care of her. I am also aware that she is the reason that my husband abandoned his son and me for close to two months."
2. She was accused of pushing her mother-in-law down who it was alleged, caught her smoking.
She said: “That is a lie from the devil. I am close to my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law has never ever seen me smoke. There are times when I am really, really sick. Mum if you are watching you know this is true.
“My mother-in-law has never ever, and I am saying this with God put in this, that she has never ever caught me smoking. I did not push my my mother-in-law down.”
3. She was accused of taking hard drugs
She denied the charge, saying: “Someone coming out to associate me with drugs as a mother. That hurts me so much because no one sees how good of a mother I am.
“Nobody knows the sacrifices I have made for my son. I have a file at home, I do a drug test almost every month...".
4. She alleged her husband has other children besides Andre.
Tonto said: “My son is not the first child my husband has. And that was one of the major concerns in my marriage, in the early part of it because he lied to me about not having a child.
“He even lied to me about not being married. I did not know he was married until the day they posted the picture of the wedding. He didn’t tell me he had a child. He always lied about it. I don’t know how I found out but I did find out.
5. Her husband infected her with STDs.
She said: “There are some things I will not like to re-discuss. I did post something about the STD. I am not taking back my words because it is not a lie but I will not promote it” in reference to her claim that her husband gave her STDs.
“I will not go ahead and embarrass my husband in that manner even if I have. I will like that to just end.”
6. She said her husband constantly abused her, showing proofs.
Tonto said: “The domestic violence is real. It’s real. How I lived to suffer it and go through it over and over again, I do not understand.
“I stayed back in my marriage not because of my child but because I believe you cannot be abused or you cannot leave a child ...I stayed because he had begged me to stay a couple of times. I stayed because I didn’t just want to give up. I didn’t want to give up on the marriage just like that."
