The iconic Nollywood actor Jim Iyke recently opened up about the reasons behind his divorce from Lithuanian-American attorney Dana Kinduryte. The couple announced their split last year soon after their son Harvis was birthed in 2015. Even though he had previously avoided talking about his personal life in public, Iyke has now openly discussed the emotional challenges that ultimately caused his marriage to fail.
Iyke disclosed the difficulties he had keeping a positive emotional relationship with his ex-wife in an open discussion with media personality Toke Makinwa on TikTok, especially in the wake of his mother’s untimely death in 2014. The actor openly acknowledged that the break in their relationship was ultimately caused by his overemphasis on parenting and his failure to return Kinduryte’s affection.
He acknowledged that his problems were made worse by his failure to provide the necessary care for his emotional health and his refusal to seek counseling. The actor stressed that he was battling opposing feelings that he found challenging to resolve while acknowledging that he played a major part in the marriage’s breakdown.
In addition, he expressed remorse that he was unable to return Kinduryte’s love for him during their union. Watch the video below and hear from the horse’s mouth:
