Nollywood actress Mellisa Osagie said her boyfriend dumped her because of a sexually explicit role she had in a movie.
She said this in an interview with The Punch, adding that he ended their relationship as a result of seeing her in bedroom scenes in movies.
Mellisa added that despite the responsibilities of her career, her expertise does not stop her from looking for a man who is prepared to commit.
She said; “My boyfriend left me because I acted in a bedroom scene. However, I am ready to stay with whoever is ready to stay; and I am ready to open the door for whoever wants to leave.
“My emotions have always been in check. Whoever is meant for one will stay in one’s life. As an actress, I believe it is better to be with someone who understands the business. It has nothing to do with trust or valuing my career more than my relationship.”
Regarding the assertions that actresses are frequently promiscuous, Osagie recalled dating an insecure man who didn’t own a car. Because he had just purchased a car in 2017, she claimed they got into a fight and he accused her of flirting with a male colleague.
She opened up on this by saying; “The difference between an actress and the regular person on the street is the camera. I dated a guy in 2017, and we had issues. He did not have a car and was not rich; but I was still with him because I liked him. However, when we had a misunderstanding, he told me that I was all over one of my male colleagues because he just bought a car.
“I asked him if he was expecting me to be moody because a colleague bought a car. He then slapped me three times after I made that statement. I did not talk about it publicly because I believe some people will blame me (due to the fact that I am an actress).”
