Netizens are applauding Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke over an old video of him taking accountability for his failed marriage.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo last year, Jim Iyke admitted that his failed marriages were his fault as he was detached from his wives.
The movie star revealed that he had been married twice but they failed, adding that he has three kids.
He blamed his crashed marriages on the death of his mother, as her death affected him emotionally, adding that he didn’t know how to deal with grief at the time.
Her death led to a change of behavior in him and he lost his humor, and he became a woeful husband to his wife.
On why his two marriages failed, Jim Iyke said
“I suffered a loss. My mum died. She was my best friend and business strategist. …she is so smart that it is ridiculous…it was a relationship based on friendship and mutual respect….she always had the right words and advice to me….I lost all that when she died, there was a spirituality and connection that I lost after she died….we were so close that it took them 72 hours to inform me of her death…I am a product of love, my parents were so in love with each other so her death shattered my dad too….their kind of relationship opened my eyes to the kind of marriage I wanted too….”
“I didn’t grieve all through the process of her death and burial…but by the time I started to grieve, my wife became pregnant with my first son and I wasn’t as loving as I should be…..I lost my sense of humor and the lion in me so she suffered for that…I became an obsessive dad after my son arrived…I took all my love and care on our son and abandoned her instead…I was an excellent dad but a horrible husband so after a while she left, she said she couldn’t find the man she married anymore and we quit but are still friends….” he stated.
‘To heal, I had to visit different countries for weeks, from Gambia to Argentina, Moscow, etc ….” Jim Iyke revealed.
