In an exclusive interview with media personality, Azuka Ogujiuba, actress Tonto Dikeh wept as she spoke about her failed marriage to her estranged husband, Oladunni Churchill.
According to Tonto, she does not regret her marriage and didn’t grant the interview to discredit her ex-husband. She stated that she indeed suffered domestic violence while she was with Churchill
“The domestic violence is real. How I lived to suffer it and go through it over and over again, I do not understand. Alot of people have blamed me. A lot of people have said a lot of things. I stayed back in my marriage, not because of my child, but because I loved my husband with all of my heart. I stayed because he begged me to stay a couple of times. I stayed because I just didn’t want to give up. I didn’t want to give up on the marriage just like that.”
She shared photos and even a video of herself after she was physically abused by her ex husband. Tonto says sometime ago when they were in Ghana, she had to run to the Nigerian Embassy after he had physically abused her
“I also have pictures in Ghana. The Nigerian embassy in Ghana has pictures of me. I had to run to them at some point. The reason I can’t release those pictures is because I was stark naked. My husband has humilated me so much and for anybody to tell me I am lying against my husband, that even hurts me more”.
Tonto says if she had her way, she would love to delete everything about herself on the internet because of her child
“If I had my way, I would like to delete everything. I would like to delete my whole existence because of my child because I know that the internet never dies. He is going to grow up, he is going to read them and it is going to hurt him.
The mother of one says associating her with drugs is the most hurtful misconception people have of her.
“Something that has really hurt me in recent times is someone associating me with drugs as a mother. That hurt me so much because nobody sees how good of a mother I am. Nobody knows the sacrifices I have made for my son. I do a drug test almost every month.
I write a letter to my son every month on his birthday about how much he has changed my life, how much he has made me a better person, about how I have stopped so many things for him. That really destroyed me. That really broke me into a million pieces. That is the worst thing I have heard”.
Tonto says she is aware that her ex-husband PA, Rosey Meurer is sleeping with him
“I am aware of her. I am aware she is sleeping with my husband. I am aware my husband is taking care of her. I am also aware that she is the reason why my husband abandoned his son with me for close to two months just before the big foundation thing we did in December because he took her on a trip. No she is not my husband’s sister. My husband is not her brother. She doesn’t know me. I have never spoken to my husband about her before but I do know their story and I do know that they are in love.
It is not just a mere relationship. I have picrtures of them being on a trip abroad together, that is something my husband has never done for me or his family. Where that hurts me more was that I watched my husband make every single dime that he owns. I know the sacrifices that I have made for my family. All I expect was for him to be good to his family. Women are not the porblem I have with husband”she said
She denied allegations that she physically assaulted her mother in-law.
