Nollywood actress and mother of one, Wumi Toriola has officially addressed rumours about her crashed marriage and allegations of violence by her ex-husband.
WITHIN NIGERIA earlier reported that Wumi Toriola’s ex-husband, had allegedly opened up on their crashed marriage to his new love interest.
While speaking on their failed marriage, he allegedly said that their marriage was filled with violence, deceit and betrayal on Wumi Toriola’s part.
Her estranged husband made this known to his new Igbo girlfriend, who leaked their conversation to a gossip blog. The lady alleged that she was dating Wumi’s husband and he had denied being married.
After confirming that her new man was the Actress’s ex, she confronted him and he opened to her on his ‘toxic marriage’. Describing his marriage as a total regret, he accused the actress of assaulting his mother.
Addressing his allegations, Wumi Toriola in a lengthy post on her Instagram page minutes ago, debunked the report.
She stated that she has never been physical with her mother-in-law nor her mother and she has witnesses to back her up.
The thespian revealed that her marriage had crashed for over a year now, and she didn’t need to air it out on social media because there was no need for the drama. She said:
“There has been a lot of media attention on me lately regarding my marriage.
Yes, it is true the marriage is over. We have gone out separate ways for over a year now. It didn’t work out, there was no need for drama hence my reason for not letting my fans know.
But yesterday I saw a report where it was alleged that I was violent while the marriage lasted, and I used to beat my mother and my mother-in-law. It was reported that my ex allegedly concocted this lies.
For the records, I am not a violent person. I have not had to exchange punches with anyone and I was never violent in the marriage.
The most painful part of the report is that I used to beat my mother.
This is not only personal attack, it is satanic. It is against everything I stand for and believe.
As a properly raised Yoruba lady, it is costly to lay your hands against your parent. As a matter of fact, my mum has been late for over 20 years. And I never raise my hands against my mother-in-law, It never happened, it will never happen. My family members, my ex’s family members and our neighbors can testify to that.
I wish those who started the rumour and those spreading well and pray that God rewards everyone of us according to the works of our hands.
As for me, I am focused on the next level, and I have moved on from the past. I advice everyone else to do the same.”
