Ireti recounted how she suffered physical and domestic violence as a teenager and said she had no business with marriage at that young age.

She shared a video of the interview on her page and wrote;

“There is a time to be silent and a time to speak. In this age where everything one says is scrutinised and quartered; it takes a certain level of trust to bare intimate details .. we are here now”

Speaking in the interview, the 55-year-old movie star said she moved out of her husband’s house to her apartment at Anthony Village in Lagos.

“The truth of the matter is that I had no business being married at that time, talk less of going to the choice of who I got married to.

“When you’re an adult, it’s not a life and death situation…there are some situations that are way beyond your control.

“I can’t sacrifice my life in the alter of your imagination or your fantasy,” she said.
