Sometimes ago, Joke noted that there were times she wanted to opt out of the marriage but then their love keeps getting stronger. During this times, several reports about their divorce were flying around but while debunking them all, she said;
I remember during an argument, I packed my clothes with the drawer and I dumped it in my car, carried my baby and went to my father’s house.
When I got home the first person I see is my mum and she said what are you doing here? I began ranting and she said you don’t have a house or a room here, you better pack your bags and go home.
My father sort of understood where I was coming from. Funnily, my husband called and asked, “When are you coming home?” That was the first time and I did it a couple of other times.”
What’s your thoughts on this? Do you think Rudeboy’s alleged divorce could also be a rumour?
