Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede reveals why her marriage failed

Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has revealed why she no longer lives with her husband, Olakunle Abounce Fawole after the pair welcomed their son, Xavier. In a recent interview with Pulse, Yvonne Jegede said she quit the union three months after she got pregnant with her son.

She said: “We started having issues before the birth of Xavier. I think I was about two to three months pregnant when the issues came. Immediately the issues came, there was never a dull moment, it just kept going up and up and it got worse and it got bad and today here we are”.

Yvonne Jegede revealed that when the issues in her marriage to Abounce, a former rapper and actor, became irredeemable, she moved out of their matrimonial home after a mutual agreement.

“Right now, we are not living together, and we are not living as husband and wife, we are not husband and wife anymore and I would say a mutual agreement to go our separate ways. It didn’t work out, it wasn’t working out,” Jegede said.

Yvonne Jegede also stated emphatically that Abounce can’t deny the fact that Xavier is 100% his son while reacting to the rumour about the paternity of their son. She doesn’t call him. She only reached out to when she felt the need to because he knows that Xavier is his son, he is 100% sure he’s his son.

“He’s been to the house twice after we got back to the country, he’s come to see his son twice and he has pictures with his son on his phone which I took so why he’s not posting them, maybe his personal reasons, maybe he’s not like me who is showing my joy to the world. I don’t know but is that enough to give me a name? No, you don’t give me a name like that, common, that is not right. People tried to bully me or make dry joke over this, about my life, would you be happy if I were your sister but anyways, I am here. I am strong and will be strong for my son. I have morals to set for him and what the world is about.”
