The wife of award-winning Zimbabwean rapper Desmond ‘Stunner’ Chideme lifted the lid on her husband’s alleged infidelity, and threatened suicide on Thursday – only to backtrack on her statement a few hours later.
Zimbabwean media are reporting that Olinda Chapel took to social media on Thursday to upload an explosive and emotional tell-all video in which she aired her husband’s dirty laundry.
A video of the Facebook Live rant was shared on several channels on YouTube and went viral in the couple’s home country of Zimbabwe.
In the lengthy video, a distraught Olinda claimed that her husband had been cheating on her with 19 and 20-year-olds, and that he had brought “his young girlfriends” into their home.
“I stood by that man. I protected him. I did every single thing for him. I did it from my own hard work,” Olinda said, before revealing how she had been told countless times that her husband was an “ass” and that she should leave him.
Olinda went on to claim that she has been bankrolling Stunner’s lifestyle and had got nothing but pain in return.
The video ended with Olinda holding a handful of pills, seemingly threatening to commit suicide by drug overdose.
“This man wants to destroy my life. You have destroyed me to the last and it’s going to end here today. I am tired. I am tired of this man. I am tired,” she sobbed, before a friend walked in and interrupted the broadcast.
Olinda later returned to social media to backtrack on her claims and said that she was misled.
“It truly seemed like he was wrong but he wasn’t… Des and I are now working on our marriage and we hope God sees us through. I am sorry to everyone who had their time and emotions wasted,”she said in a statement.
Stunner made headlines in 2013 after a sex tape of himself with Big Brother Africa contestant Pokello Nare was leaked online.
