Refute claims of domestic violence
By Juliet Ebirim
Nigerian screen goddess Chacha Eke Faani has debunked speculation that her marriage failed because of the domestic abuse of her husband, Austin Faani.
The actress who took to social media a few days ago to announce the end of her 7-year marriage to Nollywood movie producer Austin Faani said she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
In a video she made in a hospital bed, the beautiful mother of three said:
“Five days ago, I made a video saying that my marriage to Austin Faani had ended and that video had a lot of negative reactions from people and many hinted that it was a clear case of domestic violence. It is not. Austin has never laid hands on me. Austin hasn’t even raised his voice to me and God in heaven knows that’s the truth. “
Continuing she said,
“I am here at First Delta American Hospital, Asaba, receiving treatment. Several psychiatrists have come to evaluate me mentally and have diagnosed me with bipolar disorder. Bipolar is real. Here in Africa, we tend not to know it due to ignorance or to overlook it. I can’t tell you how I have been feeling in these little videos that I have been making but I will show you the movies soon nonetheless. “
