With the incidents of domestic violence seemingly on the rise in the lives Nigerian celebrities which has also led to the crash of different homes, Nollywood actress and Instagram comedienne, Etinosa Idemudia in a chat with BroadwayTV revealed that she was also a victim of domestic violence from her former husband.
Close to tears, the fast rising Edo state born actress spoke about the pains and abuses she experienced in the hands of her ex husband.
In her words:
”Right now, I hate love, I hate romance. I was with this guy who never really believed I loved him. I don’t even understand how that works, how can you put everything on hold for someone and give your all to someone and all they think of is you are too good for me. I mean at the beginning it is really cute when he tells you I don’t deserve you and you are like ‘Oh My God’ but along the line everything you do is like a competition.
The worst mistake I made was been with someone I was better than; mentally, financially, intellectually and status. I don’t know whether to call it inferiority complex He just felt threatened all the time there was this hunger for control always and I am like ‘Nigga chill! I belong to you or I supposedly belong to you, everything I have is yours, I am not trying to outshine you in life. You don’t have to punch my face to make sure I don’t talk back at you or to make sure your word is lord. So the biggest mistake I made was being with a man I was better than.”
Asked what was the worst thing her ex husband has ever done to her, she replied:
”I was in a super abusive relationship, everything you can think of happened. I have been tied up like a thief. I have seen a lot in my life, and I thank God for comedy I am still alive and not mad on the streets at this point in my life.
When I see things happen in people’s marriages, I am like Ok, nothing can shake me anymore because I have seen the worst of life but thank God we don’t look like what we’ve been through by the way congratulations to me my legal divorce papers came recently so I am free and if I don’t tell you, you won’t know it wasn’t just a relationship it was a marriage which is kind of worse.”
Finally, she said that if she finds a good man who meets her criteria she will give love a second chance.
