December 19, (THEWILL) – Brand Influencer cum beauty expert, Adeola Adeyemi, also known as Diiadem, has opened up about the domestic violence she suffered before her marriage crashed.
Diiadem and Odekunle had their traditional marriage in 2017 and welcomed a child together before their union packed up.
The mother of one made this known in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
She alleged that despite being pregnant, her ex-lover would beat her even at the slightest provocation.
Diiadem added that a few weeks into her introduction, she knew they were not destined to be together.
“I saw the signs before I got pregnant but I felt he loves me too much so he won’t shout at me. Everything changed when I got pregnant so it just didn’t work.
“I knew in my heart two weeks to my introduction that I won’t marry him but I proceeded because of what people would say. Then his father was saying we should proceed with the wedding so I was just using the pregnancy to stop them. But I already knew I won’t marry him because I know what I went through.
“It was physical abuse and there are even scars. At the time, people saw me and asked ‘motor jam you?’, it was that bad. I had to pretend to faint so he will stop beating me.
“I left when my daughter was a month and two weeks. The beating of a thing started when I was 6 weeks pregnant and I was just guiding my belly,” she stated.
