“So, whether you believe me or not, it does not matter. My name is Tonto Dikeh, I am a domestic violence victim and I am a survivor.”

With mouths agape, we read about the messy alleged details of Tonto Dikeh’s ill-fated marriage to Olakunle Churchill.

The marriage, of course, did not survive the public spat but one would have expected their separation to bring an end to the social media battle between the couple.

It did not.

Recent reports have portrayed the Nollywoood actress as being the perpetrator of domestic violence against her husband after he released a controversial video that seems to indict Tonto.

She has since insisted that the video was manipulated and she is indeed the main victim of the violence.

However, in a Sunday interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels Television’s Rubbin’ Minds, the mother of one said she is done caring about what you all think.

Tonto admitted that she was initally bothered by the shame brought by her marital issues and the public’s perception of her person.

“It was killing me, but I got to a point where I realise nobody cares about me or the situation that happened in my home asides from me.

“Everything I am doing out there is just like entertainment for them but what I went through, I went through and I am not about to validate my pain or past pain to anybody.

“I am just all about moving forward and dumping every weight that has held me backwards for a very long time and just being as successful as I can.

Meanwhile, Tonto Dikeh is only done with us – the public, she is not done with her estranged husband.

She said: “I have been trying to drag him to court, we are still in the process, it takes time for all these things...” but regarding the charges to be initiated against the man, she said this is private.

“All that is private, I don’t intend making a caricature of my private life in public, everything that happens in court stays in court. I am done with the public.”

It looks like our dear Tonto Dikeh is truly serious about not bringing her private matters to the public anymore.
