Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate, , has revealed that she was a victim of domestic violence while growing up.

She alleged that her father, Mr Akpofure was physically abusive towards her, adding that when she got married, her husband, Terna Tarka also subjected her to abuse.

The mother-of-two made the revelation while having a conversation with her love interest, Adekunle in the garden in Biggie's house.

She, however, added that during her introduction, he got drunk and gave a speech about how he often thought about apologising to her for being abusive.

The reality TV star said her dad was harsh, and might have thought he was disciplining her, but during his speech at her marriage rites, he admitted to getting physical with only her out of all his children.
