Nigerian actress, Wumi Toriola has joined the elongating list of celebrities whose marriages has crashed.
The actress on Tuesday confirmed that she is no longer married to her husband.
She also addressed allegations that she was violent during her marriage, stating that such allegations were false.
There had been rumours on social media concerning the actress’ marriage after she participated in a viral TikTok challenge where she claimed that she was single.
The blog platform, Gistlover, had also hinted at the marriage crash, coupled with allegations that the actress’ display of violence led to the end of the union.
Clearing the air on the rumours, Wumi Toriola addressed the controversy on her IG page on Tuesday.
Her statement reads,
“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 these lies.”
“For the record, 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 a 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 on 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, and it will never happen. My family members, my ex’s family members, and our neighbors can testify to that.”
The concluding part of her post read,
“I wish those who started the rumour and those spreading well and pray that God rewards every one 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 advise everyone else to do the same.”
