“I’m not a violent person” – Actress Wumi Toriola finally breaks silence on marriage crash
The Popular Nigerian Nollywood actress, Wumi Toriola, has confirmed that her marriage of three years has crashed.
There had been rumours that the actress and her husband, who married on May 13, 2018, and have a son together, had parted ways.
However, Wumi finally confirmed the rumour in a lengthy note on her Instagram page on Tuesday, January 24 revealing that the marriage ended over a year ago.
“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,” she wrote.
Speaking further, Wumi dismissed rumours that the marriage ended because she is violent and allegedly beat up her mother and mother-in-law.
According to her, the marriage didn’t work out, and they parted ways without any drama.
“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.”
