Popular UK-based Nollywood actress-cum-producer, Timmy K. MacNicol has shared her regrets marrying an old man and hopes that her colleague, Regina Daniels, 20, who recently tied the knot with 60-year-old billionaire politician, Ned Nwoko, does not end up with regrets also.
According to the single mother of one, some certain decisions she took at a young age have come back to haunt her.
Born into a polygamous family and orphaned at nine, Timmy K was adopted by the Hanson family from Ghana. Now in the UK, divorced and depressed, Timmy K admitted that though she has regrets, she plans to make amends.
The thespian recalled:
“Some day, I will reach out to people like me. I want to reach out to ladies who go into prostitution because they are orphans. I’ll reach out to people who steal because they are orphaned.
My story is a bitter one. I pray God keeps me alive to talk about it so I can inspire and warn others too. From the age of nine till now, I have been struggling. I want my voice to be heard. I want to tell my story to everyone out there.
My marriage became abusive for years. I also went into depression and was rushed to the hospital. Now, I don’t think I want to give marriage another chance, because my marriage experience is very bitter. I have been abused but I kept enduring.
I want to move on with my career but you never can tell; I might fall in love. And if I would eventually get married again, it would be to a man within my age bracket, not an old man like I did before. I married a grandfather.”
She went on:
”Talking about Regina Daniels, I was same age when I got married to an old man (my ex). I don’t think her mother, Rita Daniels influenced her decision. The person that should be blamed is the manipulative husband because this is exactly what happened to me.
Old men are always using money and affluence to manipulate young girls and they fall for it. I was a victim too.
Regina fell for the money, I was an orphan and I feel for an old man because of his wealth and affluence. I am still stuck in this, because its hard to pull out.”
