Three failed Marriages, Yemi Solade reacts
It is mostly recorded that female celebrities are the most scandalous, but the likes of veteran actor, Yemi Solade, is a strong contender having recorded several of time within the span of his acting career.
Aside the controversial nude pictures that went viral on the internet, the pregnancy saga and its likes, the star actor has also been reported to have gone through three failed marriages.
In a recent interview, Mr. Solade gave a clear account of the incidences that has succeeded in denting his image while also maintaining that he has only been married two and not thrice as speculated.
Speaking on the nude pictures he reportedly sent to one of his female fans, he said.
"I still have to say it is part of show-business. But then, things like that don't bother me.
One so-called fan couldn't believe I was the person she was chatting with on social media. She suggested I put my hand in my mouth, snap and send to her. I said what kind of nonsense was that? She called from the US but I missed her call. I didn't return the call because there was no need for me to do that. But two or three weeks later, she called and the tone she used was very harsh. To make matters worse, she called one Friday when one producer was supposed to pay me.
My eyes were already 'red' and I wasn't in the mood to entertain any pleasantries. Her tone wasn't just what I needed. And I exchanged hot words with her. After that, I went on Facebook to alert my colleagues to beware of such person. To fight back, she probably paid somebody who took a location bedroom picture and said I was sending nude pictures to her. So many people felt it was 'hot' news and decided to cash in on it. But I felt it was not a big deal to talk about. The girl's family called me and apologised. I don't celebrate mediocrity or any form of mundane acts. I just kept quiet. I didn't need to go to the media and say how it happened. I didn't commit any criminal offence."
On the verbal assault allegation another female fan levelled on him, the actor narrated how it happened.
" I had never met that one before but we used to chat on social media. Her sister and I were on the same group on blackberry messenger and I think it was through the sister that she got my link. A colleague of mine was premiering his movie and this babe suggested I bring her. But I told her she could come on her own. How would I walk on red carpet with a lady who wasn't my wife? That was my offence. The insults started flowing.
I couldn't take it. You just don't insult an elder. She said she was a youth corp member. I had done my youth service before she was born. I gave it back to her and the next thing, it hit the blogs as well."
Then another female fan accused him of been responsible for her pregnancy.
"I don't even know where that one emanated from. This is me. This is my world. I try as much as possible to relate with people."
Clearing the air on his reported three failed marriages, the thespian said he also read the story and found it rather amusing.
"I also read that too. The person who wrote the story said he was looking for hot news, so I became his guinea pig. I was in a marriage that didn't work and that was just it. For the first time, I was very pained.
