VIDEO: Jim Iyke finally speaks on his failed marriage


In a candid interview with media personality Toke Makinwa,
popular actor Jim Iyke, has opened up on the role that delayed grief played in
his crashed marriage.


In the video which started trending on Saturday,  Iyke attributed the breakdown of his marriage
to his deferred grief, mainly linked to the loss of his late mother.


He confessed that his inability to properly mourn his
mother’s passing was the  cause. The
actor admitted to postponing the grieving process, and by the time he
confronted his sorrow, it had taken a toll on his marriage.


He also mentioned that he was in the process of building a
house for his beloved mother before her demise.


Iyke further disclosed that being the only male child, he
had to step into the role of the strong male figure in his family. This left
little room for him to express his emotions. While the rest of his family
openly mourned, he took on the role of a pillar of strength.

He said in part,  ” I
was dealing with two parallels that I could not contain. I just lost my mom,
and I was in a place where I didn’t know how to navigate the motions the woman
was giving me.


“I just needed somebody. She didn’t need me that way. She
needed to love me, and I would love her back, and I couldn’t reciprocate.   I turned all my attention on our child, and
she didn’t know how to deal with it.


“I didn’t grieve properly. I was the second head of the
family; my father had fallen apart emotionally, and I had only sisters.
