While many took to the social media to celebrate their spouses on Valentine’s Day, Nollywood actress and singer, Tonto Dikeh has refused for her spirit to be dampened, despite tales of her marital problems.
There are also reports that she was engaged in a real battle with her hubby, Olakunle Chuchill, before their eventual separation.
Reposting Floyd Mayweather’s, the actress who recently garnered 1.5 million followers on Instagram, gave inkling into her frame of mind.
“There seems to be several rumours floating around media recently,” the quote read.
“However, let the record show, there hasn’t been any deals made in regards to a fight between myself and any other fighters. I am happily retired and enjoying life at this time. If any changes are to come; be sure that I will be the first to let the world know.”
News of Tonto’s marriage break-up started early in the year, when reports filtered in that her husband of 17 months was reportedly having an affair with his personal assistant, Rosaline Meurer, which she debunked on a live interview on HipTV.
Hence, it was with some shock that the actress disclosed that her marriage was broken on Instagram.
“When a woman leaves her husband, she takes her child because absolutely nothing else matters to her but the child,” she wrote.
“This is what I did and I happily give all access for his father to see him. What goes on in my marriage and home is my personal life, I’m grateful for all the years of support you all have been giving me but when it comes to the matter of the heart have enough respect to let us go through our moments alone.”
Already, the actress seems to have deleted all pictures showing her and her husband as a couple from her Instagram page. Their child, Andre Omodayo Churchill, was born in February 2016.
