Actress Wumi Toriola says her marriage crashed a year ago
Wumi Toriola, the Nigerian actress, has confirmed that she is no longer with her partner.
The actress took to social media on Tuesday to reveal she and her partner split over one year ago.
There were rumours concerning Toriola’s marriage after she participated in a TikTok challenge as a single woman.
Rumours had it that her marriage hit the rock after the actress displayed acts of violence towards a family member.
In the post, Toriola refuted claims that she was violent during her marriage, adding that such allegations were false.
“There has been a lot of media attention on me lately regarding my marriage. Yes, it is true the marriage is over. We have gone out separate ways for over a year now.
“It didn’t work out, there was no need for drama hence my reason for not letting my fans know.
“But yesterday I saw a report where it was alleged that I was violent while the marriage lasted, and I used to beat my mother and my mother-in-law. It was reported that my ex allegedly concocted these lies.
“For the record, I am not a violent person. I have not had to exchange punches with anyone and I was never violent in the marriage.”
Toriola specifically denied that she attacked her mother-in-law, saying such claims are against her values.
“The most painful part of the report is that I used to beat my mother. This is not only a personal attack, it is satanic. It is against everything I stand for and believe,” the post reads.
“As a properly raised Yoruba lady, it is costly to lay your hands against your parent. As a matter of fact, my mum has been late for over 20 years. And I never raise my hands against my mother-in-law.
“It never happened/ It will never happen. My family members, my ex’s family members, and our neighbors can testify to that.
“I wish those who started the rumour and those spreading well and pray that God rewards every one of us according to the works of our hands.
“As for me, I am focused on the next level, and I have moved on from the past. I advise everyone else to do the same.”
