Yvonne Jegede is finally ready to address the marriage breakup rumours going around. In a recent interview she revealed what led to the breakup between herself and estranged husband, Abounce, the paternity of her son, amongst other things.
It's no longer news that Yvonne separated from her husband and moved out of her matrimonial home when she couldn't take the heat from her husband anymore.
Happenings was the first to break the news of the split between the actress and her former rapper husband, Abounce. According to Yvonne, she said her marriage started experiencing problems when she discovered she was about three months pregnant.
According to her, the problems became quite heated and serious from there on and she couldn't take it anymore. In her words:
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
Yvonne also revealed that Abounce is 100% the father of her son, Xavier, and he can't deny it. She is saddened by the fact that he could peddle such fallacious rumours about her sleeping around just to cover his tracks. She still can't understand why he became distant during her pregnancy and has refused to associate with his own son. Yvonne disclosed that Abounce has only seen his son twice since his birth and she has decided to step up her role to play both mother and father to their son and be a good role model to him.
Yvonne is currently promoting ‘Annabel’ which she starred in and is also trying to lose weight and snatch her pre-pregnant body back. She seems happy, although she can't hide the fact that her life has drastically changed because she is always with her son and can't start acting right away.
Fans have reacted to this news differently, with many insulting Abounce and blaming him for abandoning his family for fellow actress, Bimbo Akintola; while others are applauding the new mother for being mature about it, not insulting her ex-husband at all.
