Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus, has cleared the air concerning her marriage to Daniel Ademinokan, who was the ex-husband of fellow actress, Doris Simeone.
In an interview with ThisDay, Damasus said she has been quiet about the ‘husband snatching’ allegation for too long, but now deems it fit to express herself concerning the matter.
“One of the comments I have seen consistently, over and over again’ is, ‘Stella snatches somebody’s husband’; ‘Stella the husband snatcher which is what has been going on.”
“And I had sworn that I would never talk about it or even listen or stress myself about the issue. But I have decided to talk about it now, so that I end it once and for all.
How is it possible to go to somebody’s home, and take a man, and take his son, away from his home and say follow me.”
“(Let’s assume) You are a man, and according to their story, he is happily married inside his home with his family. Complete and I walk into that home to forcefully take a man, able-bodied man, and a kid, away from somebody’s hand and you are there looking at me. How does that work?”
“So logically if people actually sit down and think about it intelligently, how do you snatch somebody from somebody and the person is there looking at you?”
“So when you see a man who has settled ties with a woman and decides to move on with his life and you feel that there is something in this man that you like and he likes you, is there a problem there?”
“I am not a kid. I am 36 years old. I am not about to start hiding myself.”
Damasus’ first marriage was to Jaiye Aboderin, who died when she 26-years-old. Her relationship to Daniel Ademinokan did not go down well with Doris Simeone, who claimed that her ex-husband left her for no good cause.
