Jasmine also stated that her estranged husband lied about his previous marriage and kids.

She made these revelations during an interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo.

“I was with my ex-husband for nine months and I did not get pregnant. Now this is where the story got very tricky. This man told me he had never married and he had never gotten a lady pregnant before in his life.

“He told me he was 38 years old but I found out my husband was 51 on our wedding day. Imagine finding out such a thing on a wedding day.

“Many people had different experiences with him. He promised about five girls marriages. And when I was going through my husband’s phone I started seeing a lot of girls, most of which are Yoruba, and big big TikTokers,” she added.

Seized my phone, wiped everything including all evidence I had. You’re still threatening my mom. Have kept quiet enough not anymore.”
