Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has revealed that she ended her marriage due to earning more income than her husband.

In 2019, less than a year after their wedding, Yvonne disclosed that her marriage to fellow actor Olakunle “Abounce” Fawole had fallen apart.

In a video teaser for the latest episode of “The Honest Bunch” podcast, the actress expressed regret for prioritizing love over financial stability.

She mentioned that her ex-husband, being older, often misinterpreted her jokes as disrespectful, which contributed to their divorce.

She said, “He [my ex-husband] is eight years older than me. But once we got married, if I said, ‘You dey crease,’ he would claim I was disrespecting him.

“But that wasn’t the main reason I left the marriage. To be honest, I was the primary breadwinner. I’m taking care of my son as if no one else exists around me. It’s not easy. I should have chosen financial security over love.”

Besides her acting career, Yvonne Jegede is a Nigerian actress, film producer, model, and television personality, known for producing “3 is Company.”
