Foluke Daramola-Salak, the Nollywood actress, has spoken up on why she endured her abusive marriage.
According to the mother of two, she remained in her first marriage for four years despite being constantly abused by her ex-husband because she was scared of criticism.
The thespian revealed this in a recent interview with TVC.
She said she was abused on the night of her wedding.
She said, “My first marriage, on the night of my wedding was when I noticed abuse. But because of what people will say… And God has already orchestrated it because my wonderful kids are from the marriage.
“When I finally decided to step out [of the marriage], people did not understand why I stepped out. But I understood that I needed to go. A lot of people did not receive it well, but if I hadn’t stepped out, if I had died there, by now I would have been a forgotten case.
“So, it is better for people not to accept my reality or my truth but I accept my own truth than for me to lose my life in the process of trying to prove to the world what I’m going through.”
