Princess Shyngle, the Gambia-born Ghanaian actress, has filed for divorce from Gibou Bala-Gaye, her estranged husband, after over two months of marriage.


The movie star had tied the knot with Bala-Gaye, whom she described as her “childhood crush”, at a private ceremony in January.

But in several clips and terse posts on her Instagram stories, the 30-year-old accused her husband of domestic violence on numerous occasions.

“Since you want to tell the world everything, tell them you are a woman beater. Let them know you put your hands on women and pull guns on women,” she had captioned one of the recordings.


The Banjul-born film star also described her husband as a “mistake”, adding that the “drama is just getting started.”

“You are a f**king mistake. I’ve divorced your ass so leave me the f**k alone. This drama is just getting started. I think you really underestimated me,” she said.

The actress also shared a copy of the divorce paper containing her signature while appealing to Bala-Gaye to also sign to facilitate the split.


Shyngle said she had been making efforts to get her husband’s signature on the divorce paper for weeks without success.

In a twist to the ensuing drama, Frederic Badji, Shyngle’s former Senegalese boyfriendshared an Instagram video on Sunday wherein he showed his support for the actress.

The movie star also shared clips of the video on her Instagram story and expressed her appreciation to Badji.

Shyngle had in September 2019 announced her engagement to Badji.


The union however hit the rocks shortly after. But the actress had stunned many when she re-engaged the Senegalese in January 2020.
