Eniola Badmus is absolutely right. During an interview with Encomium Magazine which was published on June 1, 2016 Badmus revealed why her private life is off limits to the media.

The famous actress believes that speaking about relationship to the press will jinx it and not make it last. “I don’t believe in talking about personal issues to the press and social media. They won’t make such relationship last.

Eniola Badmus is right. Celebrity relationships don’t do too well especially those which have been exposed to the media. A celebrity relationship is already tough on both parties. When a third party comes into the picture (the press or the public) that relationship normally crumbles.

When two celebs come together for a relationship there is attention from the media and tabloids depending on how big the celebrities are. Sometimes the attention becomes excessive and gets obsessive. For celebrities who do not have thick skins headlines from tabloids and blogs can lead to insecurity.

Last year Australian singer Cody Simpson blamed the media for the crash of his relationship with Gigi Hadid. “I love my ex-girlfriend, I always will. It was an amicable, mutual decision, and we still talk every now and then, but the highly-publicised thing made me uncomfortable” he told DuJour Magazine.

I just want to hang and be a dude, and do stupid stuff like surf, and get drunk, and jam for hours. I feel like at 18, you’re half of someone else, as opposed to all of yourself. You’re still figuring yourself out” he further said.

For years the media has been trying to sell us the story of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett. For some reason the celebrity media in America is obsessed with the split of Will and Jada. Thankfully Will and Jada are emotionally secure people and haven’t fallen prey to gossip and nasty headlines.

In Nigeria, the media has played a hand in the crash of marriages, not so much as their foreign counterpart but the misleading headlines and false stories has helped accelerate the demise of a few relationships.

I don’t blame Eniola Badmus from keeping quiet about her relationship status. The press and public will feed on it until it crashes.
