In recent interview, Nollywood actor, Femi Branch’s ex-wife Ibitola revealed what led to the crash of their 10-year-old marriage.
These revelations were made to Encomium magazine and it comes after it was revealed that Femi Branch was set to wed for the third time after separating from Ibitola, the mother of his two children.
According to Femi Branch’s ex-wife, apart from being beaten, her story of financial deprivation laced with humongous lies by her actor husband of ten years may sound unimaginable but are true.
Ibitola Branch spoke about her husband’s incarceration in Kirikiri and abandonment for ten months.
Here’s the mother of two children’s side of the marital mess…
We heard that you and Femi Branch have called it quit. Is it true?
Yes, it is
What actually happened?
I came back from work that day, and he went out as well. I waited till 11 pm and I didn’t see him. I tried calling him on phone when I didn’t see him. He complained that I was screaming, I apologized for screaming and I asked him for his whereabouts. I told him he wouldn’t have gone that long since he wasn’t on location.
All he said was that he was coming, he also said I was screaming which I apologised for again. But Femi did not come back to the house till 1am. I was up waiting since he said he was coming. When he came, I went to open the gate and I told his friend that I wouldn’t come down that late again if he comes back late. I was really upset. I asked his friend to warn him because of another time. I added that he should be telling me if he would come home or not because that wasn’t his first time. The next thing Femi said was, “You dey craze.”
And I replied the same way. He started bragging, “Do you know who you are talking to? I am Femi Branch,” and he descended on me and started beating me. He was hitting me hard and his friend was trying to stop him. He left me and went upstairs and told me to meet him upstairs and the fight continued. “
