Nollywood actress, Yvonne Jegede has come out to clear the air over the rumours flying around about an alleged relationship with music star, Orezi.
The actress made this known while answering questions from fans during an Instagram live chat with a friend.
According to Jegede, she has been friends with Orezi for a very long time and the viral video where she was spotted hugging him was taken while welcoming him to an event.
“Orezi is my friend, like good good friend. I have known Orezi way before I got married. Orezi has been a very good, a fantastic human being and we are cool. We’ve never had anything sexual and it has never crossed our minds,” she said.
“I can’t speak for him, but he has never said anything like ‘girl I like you’ and I respect him for that. Now if people now see a video of him hugging me and that was at Mercy Johnson’s movie premiere and I invited him. I was the only one he knew at the movie premiere. When he said he wanted to leave, it was only polite that I see him off.
Recall that her marriage to rapper turned actor, Abounce hit the rocks in 2019 over infidelity issues, although she denied cheating on him in a recent interview.
The couple welcomed their first child in 2018.
It started after she out up a sexy photo on her Instagram page.
An overzealous Instagram user insinuated that the reason why the actress could not keep her home was that she wanted to go naked online.
Yvonne sharply took to her comment section to blast the troll saying that the reason why she left her marriage was that her ex and the troll was in the same category of losers. She reacted that if anybody fancies her ex-husband the person can marry him.
Her post read thus;
“If you come for me with insults based on my failed marriage, you plus the person you are standing for will hear from me. It is my failed marriage, not yours. If it hurts you that much, go ahead and marry him and give him the happiness you so wish him,” she said.
“I am not the type of woman anybody can intimidate. What you see is what you will get with me. If you must act like a fool, don’t do it here. I nor dey find trouble but I certainly like trouble.”
More recently, she was in the news after she broke down on social media to lament the effects of the corona Virus epidemic.
The actress, who has been observing from a distance as celebrities and industry colleagues throw in their opinions and voices to educating their fans and followers, disclosed earlier today that she is heartbroken by everything.
According to the mother of one, she woke up this morning very sad and teary-eyed. The thoughts of how people are surviving the disaster are just heart wrenching for her. She revealed that it’s becoming a tough one for her as she can’t hide it any longer.
Yvonne also shared via her social media page to lament on the situation and implore everyone to stay home and up their hygiene, she’s hopeful for a miracle and sends her love to everyone who needs it.
I woke up this morning and tears have refused to stop streaming down my cheeks but trust me I am not crying.
I am not crying, I’m not even sad but the tears just keep coming.
It’s getting tough for me. I can’t deal with this anymore.
But most importantly I want to send love to everyone out there. I cannot even imagine what other people are going through. I’m looking out the window and praying for a miracle. I feel imprisoned. Not a soul on the streets of my estate.
It’s better to be safe than sorry. Stay safe; stay at home.
Remember hygiene is paramount.
I don’t want people to die. I’m so scared
