Award winning Ugandan DIVA Iryn Namubiru who was last weekend battered by her ex-lover Frank Morel, has come out for the first time to speak about the incident accusing her ex of threatening to end her life.
“No no no noooooooo to domestic violence. Most especially by someone whose life you haven’t been sharing for over 4 years. No to death threats. No to domestic violence. One can die in less than a minute.” Iryn posted on her Facebook timeline.
In the post, the singer revealed a fact she has kept a secret for a long time now – her separation with Frank Morel.
The two are now battling a court case that is yet to take a decision on who assumes custody of their two children.
Iryn had traveled to Holland for a short holiday with the kids but Frank Morel who wasn’t aware of the trip, thought that Iryn had taken the children away forcing him to react the way he did.
However, in a twist of events, Iryn is rumored to be plotting to block her former husband’s relocation to Kampala. Morel is supposed to take up a job at the French Embassy in Kampala as a culture attache.
The pair has had trouble in the past considering Iryn’s status as one of Uganda’s top divas, a position that has denied her ample time with family, according to observers.
Iryn joins the list of celebrities who have had domestic difficulty involving violence. Last month, socialite Zari Hassan revealed how her hubby Ivan Ssemwanga had turned her into a punching bag leading to their separation.
