Tiwa Savage in an exclusive interview obtained by Pulse opens up about the ongoing drama telling her side of the story.

Savage in a melancholy mood revealed she's been having problems in her marriage for two months now.

According to her, "I was in my bedroom when my friends woke me up to inform me. My first thought was maybe they found him dead. My first thought was that we need to find him, he is suicidal, we need to make sure he is alive. I didn’t even know what he had said. Someone took my phone from me, they don’t want me to see what was said online. I was just sacred for his life.

"For the past two months, TJ and I have not been together, it was something we were working through, but I knew this marriage would not work.

"I haven’t spoke to TJ in about a week, and we were supposed to get some passports for my son. He was reading the messages and he wasn’t responding. I begged him to be friends, and let’s be good parents to Jamil. He didn’t respond."

Savage also revealed she passed through a lot during their two years of marriage as she was the sole provider and bread winner of the family.

Speaking further on the allegations mounted against her, Savage said "I covered up for a lot of hurt in our relationship.  I covered up for so long because I wanted people to believe that TJ is the one that takes care of me, TJ is the head of the house…I wanted him to be the head of the house. I covered up so much.

"TJ has not spent one Naira, I paid for hospital bills, his flight, his accommodation, we also went shopping for TJ so that he will have new things. His excuse was that Í don’t have money’. I had to pay for everything so that he can go out and hustle, and get the contracts. He didn’t have money for diapers, but he had money to have a bi-weekly haircut, had money to pay for his laundry, had money to take a woman to the hotel."
