Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede has finally responded to rumours surrounding her marriage to Olakunle Abounce Fawole popularly known as ‘Abounce.’
The perceived marriage crisis was noticed after Yvonne welcomed their now four-month-old son, Xavier.
In an interview with PulseTv, the 35-year-old actress however said she called it quits 3-months after she got pregnant.
“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.
Jegede disclosed that when their differences became obvious and irredeemable, she had to move out of their matrimonial home by 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 by a mutual agreement to go our separate ways. It didn’t work out, it wasn’t working out,” She said.
Yvonne Jegede however said her marriage to Abounce was worth it while it lasted.
According to her, the times they shared together as a couple were nice and sweet so she wouldn’t trample on those times.
Responding to the rumours of the paternity of her son, Yvonne stated that Abounce knew Xavier was 100% his son.
“I don’t call him. 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,” she said.
Yvonne Jegede and Olakunle Abounce had their court and traditional wedding in 2017 and welcomed their son in 2018.
