Hausa actress, Rachel Bakam, has put her crashed marriage to showbiz man, Israel Edjren, behind and now celebrates sizzling romance with ex-football star and TV presenter Amb. John Fashanu who though much older, gives her money and attention.
Birds of a feather you may call them. Fashanu messy marriage just crashed too with rumours of him being caught pants down by his wife while having a threesome with his housemaid plus another girl. He was reported to have also claimed he caught her pants down with her lesbian lover.
Messy indeed. But one must take it all with a pinch of salt because it’s all yellow journalism.
However, Rachel is obviously happy with Fashanu. She told Saturday Punch: “In love with John.”
While saying she didn’t believe all the messy stuff John’s ex said about him in print, Rachel said she has come to know who John really is.
“We have the same bad experience. He is coming from a bad marriage and I am coming from one as well. He has told me all the details. With what we have been through, it is not something bad if you hook up with somebody who must have had the same experience as you. Maybe that is why it is working out so well for us,” she said.
Rachel said wedding bell is not ringing soon but, “What we have is serious. We have to take it step by step. I am going through my divorce and he is doing same as well. But it is difficult to hide what we share. It is so difficult to even be apart for a minute. This is what I have been looking for all along. We are so similar. I know what he has been through and I know the whole story with his ex.
“He is a very caring man whose paramount interest is my happiness. This is different from what I have been used to. He gives me money, he supports me and he encourages my work. He tries to hype me all the time and I know he loves me deeply. This is different from what I used to have before,” she said.
Explaining why she is always hooked to older men, the young girl said, “It has to do with my background. I don’t flow with men who are younger. I lost my father at a very young age. Psychologically, I am comfortable with men who are much older than I am,” she said.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
