There are very strong indications that the marriage between Tiwa Savage and her estranged husband, Tunji Balogun, an artiste manager better known as Tee Billz, is currently on a rough path and may be on the verge of a crash.
According to media reports, all attempts by the couple to resolve their differences have failed, and they have decided to formally call it quit.
While it was initially learnt that Tiwa had allegedly filed for the divorce, citing ‘unsolvable issues’ as the reason for her decision, news broke on Friday that it was Teebillz, not Tiwa that filed for a divorce.
TheCable Lifestyle learnt from multiple sources that as opposed to reports suggesting that the Mavin singer filed for divorce, the artiste manager actually took the step towards ending their marriage.
The couple fell out in April 2016 when Teebillz attempted to commit suicide by reportedly making attempt to jump into the Lagos lagoon.
Shortly before then, he had launched a tirade on social media, accusing Tiwa of cheating on him with several persons such as 2face Idibia, Don Jazzy and Dr. Sid among others.
On her part, Tiwa debunked his claims, saying the artistes’ manager was a drug addict and equally accused the husband of cheating on her.
After the public exchange between the duo, frayed tempers simmered and TeeBillz sought help for depression and mental breakdown.
Working with Lanre Olusola, a life coach, he underwent rehabilitation and clawed his way back to recovery.
After the intervention the estranged lovebirds put the episode behind them and moved on as they were even seen together at a few events towards the tail end of 2016.
However, a source privy to the development told the news outfit that “he has relocated to the US for a fresh start after working with Lanre Olusola”.
The music industry source said Savage’s resolve to focus squarely on her career — which he had put in jeopardy with his public display — was the final nail in the coffin for their union.
“Tiwa’s career was more important to her than TeeBillz’s wellbeing,” the source said, adding that: “He wants to move on and start life afresh”, hence, his decision to file for divorce.
While Tiwa is yet to confirm nor deny the divorce issue, it remains to be seen what would play out between the duo in the coming weeks, as they have both decided to keep mute on the matter.
