Nollywood Actress, Mellisa Osagie claimed that her boyfriend dumped her as a result of her portrayal in a bedroom role.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, obtained by Glam, she said, “My boyfriend left me because I acted in a bedroom scene. However, I am ready to stay with whoever is ready to stay; and I am ready to open the door for whoever wants to leave.
“My emotions have always been in check. Whoever is meant for one will stay in one’s life. As an actress, I believe it is better to be with someone who understands the business. It has nothing to do with trust or valuing my career more than my relationship.”
Osagie disagreed with the idea that actresses are typically promiscuous.
“The difference between an actress and the regular person on the street is the camera. I dated a guy in 2017, and we had issues. He did not have a car and was not rich; but I was still with him because I liked him. However, when we had a misunderstanding, he told me that I was all over one of my male colleagues because he just bought a car.
“I asked him if he was expecting me to be moody because a colleague bought a car. He then slapped me three times after I made that statement. I did not talk about it publicly because I believe some people will blame me (due to the fact that I am an actress),” she added.
