Comedienne, Princess has accused the Nigerian media of being responsible for her crashed marriage.
a recent interview with Encomium, she disclosed that many Nigerian
blogs and press had been writing negative stories about her marriage
before it finally collapsed.
“The press, especially the bloggers were fond of writing negative
stories about my marriage, making it look like they actually wanted it
to break down.
“The Press, the so called bloggers, many of whom are not credible kept on writing things that weren’t happening at all….That is why I said that now that the marriage has crashed, I just hope they are happy…
- There were some allegations that you were oppressing him
financially. They cited an example of both of you in a restaurant where
you made it obvious to everyone present that you were the one paying for
what the two of you had eaten?
They were there abi? People can say anything. It doesn’t matter. The
truth is the truth. I did not discuss my marriage breakup with anybody
except what I just told you. I am a celebrity, the other person is not a
celebrity, so what do you expect?
If Kanye West was dating a non celebrity and not Kim Kardashian, they will say the same thing. So if
I wanted to make the reason public, I would have made
it myself. But it is not necessary, marriage is between a couple. We
did not take our marriage vow on the street. We took it before God.
Me, I am not afraid of man. I am also afraid of God. Anything that
happened between God and a couple is sacred. There is no need itemizing
the reasons. What is that going to do? Is it going to make the other
party happy? Is it going to make us happy? So it is between the person
(husband), I and God.
Really I don’t owe anybody the reason why my marriage broke up but they
can sit down and start drawing up reasons for themselves. That is their
problem. They have God to answer to.
The most authentic news is the one you get from the source. I didn’t
want people to be speculating because I was already hearing many rumors,
bla bla bla, even when we were still together trying to make it work.
They kept on writing what they were not sure of. I remember there were
times he would ping to say he see what they wrote again.The press,
particularly the so-called bloggers, many of whom are not credible kept
on writing things that were not happening at all. That is why I said now
that the marriage has crashed, I hope they are now happy.
I know few press men who are true to their professional ethics would not
be happy with it (breakup) but the other ones that are not true to
their professional ethics are the ones writing things that do not exist.
But they are not God and cannot be more than God.
