Singer Tiwa Savage and her husband, Tunji ‘Teebillz’ Balogun are rumoured to have split – living separately.
The couple, who tied the knot in April 2014 in a lavish wedding ceremony in Dubai, may be headed towards divorce is the rumours about their marital problems are true.
Reports have it that Savage’s husband, who doubles as her manager, has been hitting her. The domestic violence, sources say, led the singer to move out of their matrimonial home.
An insider says the beating started before they tied the knot but the Wanted singer still went ahead to marry him.
The last straw, it was learnt, happened about four weeks ago when Savage confronted Teebillz over alleged infidelity but he turned violent and beat her up.
The pair met in 2010 in the US and began a professional relationship immediately. Teebillz signed her under his label, 323 Entertainment where she was until she joined Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records in 2012.
He still remained her manager.
The couple, who are known for their romantic public display of affection in public and on social media have been very quiet towards each other on social media and haven’t been spotted together in public for about four weeks now.
The singer has been attending events without her hubby/manager. Their last outing together was when they attended the Nigerian Entertainment Awards in New York about four weeks ago. Their last social media activity together was also four weeks ago when the singer shared a photo of them in New York.
