Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede, has confirmed that her marriage to actor and rapper, Olakunle Fawole, is over. The 35-year-old made the heart-breaking revelation in a chat with pulse.ng. According to her, trouble began three months after she got pregnant with her only son.\
“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,” she said. The True Lies actress said the couple decided to part ways by mutual consent.
Her words: “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.” Addressing the paternity of her child, Yvonne said “I don’t call him (Olakunle). I only reached out to him when I feel the need to because he knows 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.” Yvonne and Olakunle, popularly known as Abounce, got married in 2017.
The actress was delivered of a son in November last year. Olakunle is the son of late actress, Bukky Ajayi, who died in 2016.
