Over the weekend, the Nollywood actress took many by surprise when she revealed that she was splitting from the movie producer. In a disturbing video posted on her Instagram, Chacha — real name Charity Eke — said she was leaving with her life which gave fans the impression that she was being abused physically by her spouse.

The mother of two three, however on Wednesday October 8 returned in a new video to deny claims her husband subjected her to acts of domestic violence. She stated that Austin has never laid his hands on her since they got married.

”Five days ago I made a video saying that my marriage to Austin Faani is over and that video came with a lot of backlash from people with many insinuating that it is a clear case of domestic violence! It is not,” Chacha said in the video that showed her laying on an hospital bed.

She added, “Austin has never laid his hands on me. He has never even raised his voice at me and God in heaven knows that’s the truth.” She disclosed that she is currently in a hospital in Delta state where she is receiving treatment after psychiatric doctors diagnosed her to be Bipolar.

“Several psychiatrists have come to assess me mentally and I have been diagnosed of Bipolar disorder. Bipolar is real. Here in Africa we tend to not know about it due to ignore or overlook it,” she said. “I cannot tell you all how I have been feeling in these tiny videos I have been making but I will however show you in motion pictures soon.”
