I wasn’t in a hurry to leave the marriage years ago – Monalisa Chinda talks about her divorce

Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda is one person who people admire a lot because of her acting prowess despite having a history of a failed marriage some years back, after which she gave relationship and marriage another chance. Although it is not quite revealing to many fans and followers of the actress about the details that led to the termination of her first marriage.

During her interview with the media house, TopNaija, Chinda opened up about the abuse she suffered in her first marriage which lasted for a hell of five years, stating that she wasn’t willing to leave then despite the abuse.


She further told the interviewer that she assured herself that things would get better after the birth of their first child but lo and behold, the abuse grew worse. Proud mother sympathetically said that her church pastor who she tells most abuse cases did nothing to help the situation.

Monalisa said she is someone who didn’t consider divorce an option but later resorted to prayers and decided to call it a quit. Her wisdom to leave the marriage came when she was being beaten by her husband and she heard the neighbours calling out for the man to stop.

She told TopNaija that the fact the neighbours were fully aware of her hell on earth convinced her to quit the marriage, without any consideration of the consequences it may involve.

Chinda said she left the marriage with her beautiful daughter. And when she went back to the house to pick up some of her daughter’s belonging, she was beaten and almost to death.

“I left and never looked back”, she said. “A friend in the movie industry advised me to see a lawyer and that was how everything changed for the better”.
