Korra Obidi has revealed she is not as strong as many people assume.
The singer broke down in tears as she spoke about her struggles with divorce.
Recall that her estranged husband, Dr. Justin Dean announced he will be divorcing the mother of two few days after they welcomed their second daughter.
According to the doctor, he had been trying to make the marriage work for years.
Since the news broke out, Obidi has remained on Instagram sharing content and dancing in her usual style, which she was greatly criticised for.
Some fans made comments on her posts asking her to apologise and concentrate on her family rather than posting on social media.
She in turn blasted them for advising her to leave the platform, stating she doesn’t have the luxury of doing that because it pays her bills.
However, taking to her Facebook live on Saturday, March 19, Obidi has opened up on how she’s been faking being strong.
“I just want you to know exactly what I’m going through right now. And to understand that anything I’m doing right now is just to cope. I miss my family, I miss everything, I’m not a robot,” she said.
Breaking down in tears, she urged those making harsh comments and judging her without hearing her side of the divorce story to be empathetic.
“When I can talk about my story. I’ll talk about it. When I’m able to tell my story, I will share everything with you guys.
“Until then, please be patient with me, have empathy. Please know that I have two girls that I have to take care of. If I’m not there, nobody will. I’m the only one here my family is not with me so I have to try to be strong even when I’m not.”
The dancer also apologized to her fans for disappointing them by depicting a perfect inter-racial marriage online.
