Actor Jim Iyke has revealed how dealing with the death of his mother affected his marriage.
The actor disclosed this in a recent podcast with media personality Toke Makinwa and his colleagues Chidi Mokeme and Kate Henshaw.
The 46-year-old noted that a biracial relationship comes with so many parts, adding that “marriage will bring out the best and the worse in you.”
“I was dealing with two parallels I could not contain, I just lost my mum, I just needed somebody of African descent I could relate with,” he said.
He added that he did not properly grieve the death of his mother who was like a best friend to him and that affected his marriage.
Jim who is now divorced, said that his ex-wife suggested therapy but he declined and that caused a drift between them.
In June 2022, Jim debunked the rumour that he had converted to Islam after photos of him in a Muslim outfit circulated on social media.
Jim’s mother died on April 1, 2014.
Jim was married to a Lithuanian woman named Dana Kinduryte.
They have a son together.
