“When I saw your pictures last year Chacha, I wrote it that no matter what you are trying to cover up that it will never change the fact that you are in an abusive marriage.
“Because I know it’s only an abusive marriage can make a beautiful lady like you turned that way. You kept denying that with the reason you stopped applying makeups.
” I am a psychologist by profession and I know when one is battling emotionally. I thank God you have decided to take a walk at least with your 2 legs alive.
“You don’t need to explain much to the world my dear because whomever that has eyes would know you fought a great battle in that marriage”.
Well, her fans will have to wait for her full story.
