After series of rumours trailing Tracy Daniels' marriage and reports that the union has collapsed, the actress herself has finally confirmed the claims.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, the light-skinned star admitted that her marriage to her Indian husband has come to an end, and blamed the crash on the negativity that surrounded it.

She also expressed her regrets, hopes and the lessons she learned from the whole experience.

First, she cleared the air on why they made their union discrete and as well debunked rumours she was a gold-digger:

"People dissected my marriage until it crashed. I guess those people are happy right now. Some said I married an old Indian man. Is it because he is a chief? Does that suggest he is an old man? Our people made him chief because of the good things his company did for the community where it operates in Delta State. Please, he is a handsome young man, biko.

"Others said he is a billionaire and I married him because we were poor. I felt so betrayed. His people read all the nonsense you people were posting on the social media. How do you want them to feel after that? I wouldn’t say we were rich but we were not poor enough for me to sell myself for money. At least, I had produced three movies already in the market even before I met him. I had also featured in over 20 movies and I was well paid.

"Others said I married him so I can become a foreign citizen. I cried when I saw that very one. Why should I leave an oil rich nation like Nigeria and go to a third world country for citizenship? I am not giving this interview to defend my decision or reply my critics but I just want to appeal to our people to be cautious of the things they say on social media."

On what attracted him to her in the first place, she said: "He is a perfect gentle man. He made me fly without wings. He made this wicked world beautiful for me."

On why she choose to marry an Indian, Tracy said:

"The guy met all my criteria plus more. I had set a standard and he met up with it so he became the one. Unfortunately the marriage crashed irretrievably. I lamented the loss of my happiness. Many things happened that I couldn't understand. It was like some forces conspired to fight my happiness. The gods lifted me up then let me fall! They put me on a royal seat in marriage and cut my celebration short and put me back in this cold market of singlehood.

"I am done crying; I am moving from the victim mode and activating my survivor mode. If divorce is one of the paths God wants my destiny to take, I have gone through it. The pain is too much; I don't wish it for my enemy. It is one thing I feared so much but it has happened. I have cried but I survived. Most importantly, God healed me of bitterness. I am full of forgiveness and peace, that is why I am talking about it now in the media."

On the real reasons why the marriage couldn't stand the test of time, she said:

"He was still deeply involved with his past relationship. The interference was so much it did not allow us move forward. Someone from his past would not let go and he wasn't strong willed enough to resist, so he bowed to the pressure and gave up on our dreams."

Speaking on the lessons she learned from the experience, Tracy said:

"The major one is to always forgive. Second is that things are not always the way you think. I learnt to give people a chance to explain situations. I also learnt not to judge any matter or take sides till I have heard extensively from both parties."

The actress who is still keen on marriage, detailed the kind of man she wants next:

"I want a gentleman who honours, respects and appreciates womanhood. I want a real man. And he should be able to hold his grounds and play his role as the head of a family. I want a man who is not threatened by a woman's success. I want a man who submits to Almighty God in fear," she added.
