Veteran Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, has opened up for the first time that he has been married twice, both of which ended in divorce, and that he now has three children.

In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, the 45-year-old movie star revealed the information.

According to him, he is always tactical and surprising, which is why no one knows about his marriage, which ended in divorce, and his three children.

“I have failed many times. I have had failed marriages, I have three beautiful kids, so how are you gonna know cos of my strategic pattern. Even people that live in my space don’t know…Even my sisters call to hear from me, even my PAs don’t know stuffs. I keep everyone on their toes with my level of unpredictability, i hate being figured out…once you figure me out, I have nothing else to offer, I refuse to be figured out and tamed”

Speaking on how his marriages collapsed, he said: “I suffered a loss. My mum died. She was my best friend and business strategist. …she is so smart that it is ridiculous…it was a relationship based on friendship and mutual respect….she always had the right words and advise to me….I lost all that when she died, there was a spirituality and connection that I lost after she died….we were so close that it took them 72 hours to inform me of her death…I am a product of love, my parents were so inlove with each other so her death shattered my dad too….their kind of relationship opened my eyes to the kind of marriage I wanted too….”

“I didn’t grieve all through the process of her death and burial…but by the time i started to grieve, my wife became pregnant with my first son and i wasn’t as loving as I should be…..i lost my sense of humor and the lion in me so she suffered for that…i became an obsessive dad after my son arrived…i took all my love and care on our son and abandoned her instead…I was an excellent dad but horrible husband so after a while she left, she said she couldn’t find the man she married anymore and we quit but still friends….” he stated

‘To heal, I had to visit different countries for weeks, from Gambia, to Argentina, Moscow etc ….”
