‘I left my marriage because I was providing more than my ex-husband’ – Yvonne reveals


Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has revealed that she walked out of her marriage because she was contributing more financially than her ex-husband.

In 2019 Jegede confirmed the crash of her marriage to actor Olakunle ‘Abounce’ Fawole, barely a year after they tied the knot.

Speaking in the teaser of the upcoming episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, the thespian said she regretted choosing love instead of money.

She stated that her ex-husband taking every joke as disrespect because he was older than her was also part of the reason for their divorce.

She said: “He [my ex-husband] is eight years older than me. But the moment we got married, if I tell am say, ‘You dey crease, ‘ he would say I’m disrespecting him. I would if it was the same person I got married to.

“But that wasn’t the main reason I left the marriage. Let me just say the fact, I was bringing more of the money. I’m taking care of my son like nobody exist around me. It’s not easy. I would have gone for money instead of love.”
