Zari Hassan has officially put an end to her relationship with Diamond Platnumz.
Zarinah took to BBC Swahili for an interview to share her side of the very public break up between herself and award-winning Bongo artist Diamond Platinumz. The duo’s relationship troubles became very public as it became common knowledge that Diamond cheated on the Ugandan-born businesswoman with a Tanzanian beauty Hamisa Mobeto. The public apology only seemed to the tip of the iceberg, as the iconic couple began to unravel before the public.
Revealing that the couple has been estranged for weeks, Zari spoke out saying that the various cases of infidelity and disrespect drove her to the edge. In an Instagram post, Zari shared that she had finally filed for a divorce to her 3.6M followers. Putting up an image of a black rose, Zari captioned it “…I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY & WELL BEING cannot be compromised. We are separating as partners but not as parents.”
Understand that this is very difficult for me to do. There have been multiple rumors some with evidence floating around in ALL SORTS of media in regards to Diamond’s constant cheating and sadly I have decided to end my relationship with Diamond, as my RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY & WELL BEING cannot be compromised. We are separating as partners but not as parents. This doesn’t reduce me as a self-made individual, and as a caring mother, and the boss lady you have all come to know. I will continue to build as a mogul, i will inspire the world of women to become boss ladies too. I will teach my four sons to always respect women, and teach my daughter what self-respect means. Unlike many, I’ve been in the entertainment industry for 12 years, and through all my challenges I came out a victor because I am a winner, and so are all of you Zari supporters. HAPPY VALENTINE'S
