Controversies With Actress Kate Henshaw

Remember how the singer was accused of abusing and even breaking the ankle of famed actress Kate Henshaw while they were dating? According to Kate Henshaw,

“I can’t withstand violence in a relationship. I was once a victim. The relationship lasted for about three/four years. I didn’t know who I was then. I was so timid, I almost stopped smiling and almost stopped laughing, but there was this inner strength in me that helped me to rediscover myself. In fact, I had no self-esteem then.

I wanted to change and be who I was not, based on the ill treatment and violent nature of my man then.

He was constantly abusing, beating and battering me inside the house and in public places. I think there was a time when I walked round with bandage on my leg, courtesy of my violent lover. Funny enough, this violent lover of mine claimed to love me and wanted to marry me then.

I wanted to marry him. I had started buying pots and other household items because I was in love. I wanted to settle down, I wanted to have my children with him. I wanted to be happy and continue to do my work but he was that bad. I kept think he would change, but he didn’t. I tried my best to be everything to him, but finally I said enough was enough, this relationship was not of God and not for me. During those turbulent periods, I was ashamed.
