It took me to a dark place – Maureen
TV host and social media influencer Maureen Waititu has for the first time opened up on her separation with baby daddy Frankie Justgymit.
In an interview with Parents Magazine, Maureen disclosed that they parted ways long before going public with their separation, and it was only a matter of time.
The mother of two mentioned that the events leading to the breakup with Frankie tainted her self-esteem, as well as her happiness.
Ms Waititu who is also a lawyer stated that she is still dealing with the breakup, despite admitting that it took her to a dark moment in her life because that was not how she thought it would be.
“It is to be expected because we put our lives out there and our online ‘in-laws’ who were also invested in the relationship were and are still curious to know what happened. I’m still dealing with it. It takes time to come to terms with a breakup because of the physical and emotional toll… it feels almost like grief because I feel like I’ve lost someone who ideally I wanted to grow old with. It took me to a really dark place and it’s definitely not the way I envisioned things,” she said.
Maureen Waititu’s words come about four months after they went public with their separation.
In September, Frankie disclosed that he parted ways with his baby mama Maureen Waititu, because they had differences.
In updates seen by Pulselive.co.ke, Frankie explained that; “Maureen and I, we had our differences and decided to go our separate ways.”
He further pointed out that their main focus after the separation was to create a healthy environment for their two kids and make sure they are accorded the required parental love and upbringing.
“The point of this is to let you know that people might say something to be funny or relevant on Twitter and Instagram but someone’s day to day life is being affected. We are not in a good place yet. I have known Maureen for 6 years and loved her every one of those years. That kind of love doesn’t fade. Sometimes things just don’t happen the way you expect them to. Our main focus is the kids and creating a health environment for them. Extend us the courtesy,” wrote Frankie.
