The entertainer has been in the public eye since Justin Dean, her American husband, announced their split.

Dean had accused Obidi of infidelity, narcissism, and unaccountability.

He had also said he is heartbroken and needs to walk away from their marriage to protect his mental health.

In a Facebook live session, Obidi also said she would tell her side of the story when she is strong enough to do so.

“I decided to address some of the things that have been going on. I really don’t want to wash my linen in public because I know the Internet never forgets,” she said.

“First, I want to apologise to everyone who saw the perfect depiction of a family and the inter-racial love I projected online and bought into it. And now, they are disappointed with what is going on.

“I am sorry you had to see that and now, you have to see everything crashing. I want to apologise to you, my beloved fans. You might see me looking strong and dancing, trying to keep things together.

“When you see me doing that, just know I am trying to hold things together and be strong for my girls.”

Obidi also said despite her marital crisis, she would not speak ill of her estranged husband.

“Trying to keep things together is how I cope. I cope with dance. I can read the comments of people, but I am not going to say anything bad about my husband because I know it would be damaging to my family,” she added.

“It takes two in every marriage. I am the only one in the United States of America. I have a two-year-old daughter and a newborn baby. My (extended) family members are not based here.

“I just want you all to know what I am going through right now. I am not a robot. I am just trying to make ends meet. I am trying to be the strong figure my girls can look up to and emulate.

“When I am strong, I will tell my own side of the story. Till then, please be empathetic and kind with your words. If I don’t take care of my girls, no one will. I am just trying to keep my sanity.

“I don’t want to say anything I would regret. Please keep me in your prayers and remember that I am only human.”
