3. Nollywood Actress in Divorce Mess
Fellas,  a smart woman will go to the ends of the earth for you so long as she knows you love her and you hold your end of the bargain, even make a fool of herself sef. If she loses your love, but believes it was real, she will do whatever it takes to get you back. If it turns out  you are a jerk afterall and you never loved her in the first place or can but refuse to meet your end of the bargain, you’d be surprised how quick she snaps out of it and does move on.

There is nothing more to it. You got love, you are a blessed person. In this instance it is a case of primarily domestic violence, and alcohol abuse all resulting in a showdown in Nigeria’s family court. Ladies, abuse of any form is NOT love. GET OUT, NOW.
