Nollywood actress Funke Akindele, has finally opened up about behind-the-curtains episodes of her marriage with Kehinde Oloyede in an interview with E-47.
According to the well-loved actress, she confessed that she only enjoyed the first two months of marital bliss.
“I was abused emotionally and verbally. Really, I felt we could work things out when the trouble started two months after the marriage, but I made up my mind and shut the door of the marriage at him when the trouble was coming to me too much.”
“I stooped to conquer him; buried my fame and name to make him my husband, but it did not work. At a point in time, I asked if it’s not the same man that was all over me before we married. He nearly got me off my career. He called me severally; I did not pick his calls but when he realized my silence was tormenting him, he took to Facebook. It’s alright. Ask him when did he come to my house last? He left me here in my rented apartment with nothing and he will just dash in and dash out. He gets abusive, caustic anytime we have a misunderstanding and often told me to my face, he’s going to his wife in Oshodi.”
Fadekemi, the other wife at Oshodi probably have no qualms with the actress as she always welcomes Funke warmly unlike the constant humiliation she gets from Kehinde.
“He sent me sms that he has seen a buyer for his house at Adeniyi Jones for N40million. He asked me if he should sell it and that if he does, he will buy me a new car and a rent me a new apartment. Why now? I don’t need all that, I want my sanity.”
After she ignored him, he sent her another text abusing her and calling her names. “So you can see that he does not mean well for me,” she re-iterated.
“I respect him to the end but he chose to treat me that way. He said he wanted to clip my wings.”
