“I got addicted to drugs at a point to escape my ex-husband’s abuse” – Actress Etinosa
Popular Nollywood Nigerian actress, social media influencer, and filmmaker, Etinosa Idemudia, has revealed that she turned to illicit substances as a means of escaping the abuses she experienced from her estranged husband.
According to the popular Nollywood Nigerian actress, she got married at the age of 22 and suffered brutal domestic violence to the point that she almost lost her life.
The thespian disclosed this in a recent chat with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, stating that she was terrified of her ex-husband.
She claimed that he always asserted his position as her lord rather than a friend or partner.
“It [the domestic violence] got to a point where I was on drugs. Whenever he [my ex-husband] was coming home, normally as a woman, you should be happy that your husband is coming home, but I would just be stoned and doped up, so that no matter what he says or does, I’m just looking at him. Just so that there would be peace,” she narrated.
She further revealed that she eventually left the marriage after her ceaseless praying and fasting didn’t change her husband.
“I was green, I no know anything. I was a mumu. I was 22 when I got married. My ex-husband told me that ‘I’m not your friend, I’m your lord.” She added.
