Media personality Tina Kaggia and comedian JB Masanduku are divorcing. But before you can shout “dissolution of marriage”, Masanduku has moved on and is showing off his new bae.
Tina and Masanduku tied the knot in a low key ceremony at the AG’s office over 4 years ago.
“I did not want a white wedding. People found out we were married a few days later when a paparazzi saw JB’s ring,” Tina told Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central.
Tina highlighted the reason why their marriage started to crack wide open was because Masanduku was not ready to stop partying.
So, when was the last straw?
“We started having those episodes of a lot of dishonesty and abandonment. There are these kids with many questions that mummy keeps lying about and they kept recurring and I was like, ‘You know what, you call my bluff one more time and that is it!’ He did not think I was serious,” Tina said.
Even her best friend stepped aside because she could not handle her drama with Masanduku. Tina said she felt “very alone”.
Depression set in.
So, how did she manage to pull herself from the depression?
“My mum came to the house and I looked like crap and I was 29-30 kgs and we really talked and I admitted I was crashing. I had already been treated for depression two times before,” she said.
At one point Tina broke down during the interview and said,
“You are looking at yourself and thinking when did i get here and i looked at my kids and i felt like garbage i should have done this [left the toxic relationship] a long time ago because i have lost a lot of myself that i did not deal [and give attention to her children] properly,” Tina admitted.
The situation was affecting her kids to the point where they became withdrawn.
“I pray that he figures himself out because he’s really talented; but it is not my place to help him do so – I almost fell apart the last time I tried to,” she said.
After admitting that she almost committed suicide, Tina told her fans on social media.
