Mellisa Osagie, a Nollywood actress, has revealed how her boyfriend ditched her over a bedroom scene in a movie.
Mellisa Osagie told the PUNCH in an interview that she is willing to go to any length for her acting profession and that she needs someone who understands her and what she does.
She also addressed the myth that actresses are promiscuous. She described how her ex-boyfriend slapped her after an argument on the subject.
She also disputes the perception that most actors are promiscuous, recalling being slapped by her boyfriend during a misunderstanding.
She said: “My boyfriend left me because I acted in a bedroom scene. However, I am ready to stay with whoever is ready to stay; and I am ready to open the door for whoever wants to leave.
“My emotions have always been in check. Whoever is meant for one will stay in one’s life. As an actress, I believe it is better to be with someone who understands the business. It has nothing to do with trust or valuing my career more than my relationship.
“The difference between an actress and a regular person on the street is the camera. I dated a guy in 2017, and we had issues. He did not have a car and was not rich, but I was still with him because I liked him. However, when we had a misunderstanding, he told me that I was all over one of my male colleagues because he just bought a car.
“I asked him if he was expecting me to be moody because a colleague bought a car. He then slapped me three times after I made that statement. I did not talk about it publicly because I believe some people will blame me (due to the fact that I am an actress).”
