ctress Yvonne Jegede has disclosed that the child she is having with Nollywood actor, Olakunle Fawole, popularly known as Abounce, is now asking to know his father.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Jegede disclosed this while accusing Fawole, her ex-husband, of not visiting or supporting their son, Xavier.
Recalls that Jegede and Fawole got married back in 2017. However, Jegede shocked many when she revealed that she quit her marriage three months after she was pregnant with Xavier.
In a chat with fellow Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, Jegede spoke on her failed marriage, saying: “First of all, I dey fear. How I wan tell people say I no wan do again, marriage wey never even reach two years, say I no want. I don see the future say the future no dey so na to reverse comot for there”.
When Mercy asked if the estranged couple still communicate with each other, Yvonne said: “We don’t talk. He doesn’t come around, he doesn’t call, he doesn’t do nothing. I don’t know what it is that could cause a friendship… because apart from the marriage, we had a good, very solid friendship.
“I think I still look at that friendship and believe this thing wey we dey experience now, we no suppose to, at least that friendship wey we get supposed to cover up for somethings. He no dey call.
“Even the first time wey he come house, when he finally publicly accept say na him pikin I born, I give am ultimatum say if he no come, once my pikin reach five years, I go remove his surname comot for him name because I get to put Jegede Fawole for there because I know as I take suffer go America go born the pikin”.
Jegede also revealed that her ex-husband does not celebrate their son on his birthdays and has never called to ask about his wellbeing.
“He doesn’t wish him happy birthday on his birthdays. He doesn’t call him to ask after his wellbeing, he just doesn’t care that he has a son somewhere.
“Your gift is in my hand, yet you don’t care. You see, one moment I dreaded the most is for my child to wake up one day and ask where is my father and it has started happening.
“One day when he asked, I had to send messages to his siblings to ask him to come and check up on him, but it yielded no result.
“It was so bad that my father had to represent my son at school for a father’s day event they recently had. It was embarrassing for me but I’m waiting to see when he will show up or if he wouldn’t till the boy turns 18.”
Meanwhile, Fawole had earlier stated why he does not react to the backlashes and criticisms Jegede throw at him. However, nothing is heard of Fawole on Jegede’s recent disclosure.
