Somizi took to Instagram to share the statement. He said, "...never in my wildest dreams did I think that one day I would have to defend my honor as a result of someone I have loved so deeply  and so genuinely deliberately harming a reputation I've worked so hard to build. For the most part of my life, I've kept my relationships out of the public eye until my one and only marriage which you witnessed on television and other social media

"It took me this long to arrive at a stage where I could make the conscious decision to share my life traditionally and lawfully with someone and that should explain the level of depth of my love for that person and commitment to that person. It is incredibly painful that what i thought  would be a beautiful new normal for the rest of my life with the love of my life, is no longer what will happen.

"I have loved loudly and proudly, and as such, you all have experienced parts of our relationship by virtue of my reality show, our wedding special on tv and our social media platform. Now, you are also audience to what has sadly become a breakup between two people laced by defamation, false but very serious allegations and interference from supposedly close and reliable sources in the spread of information (some true and some false).

"The facts of the matter that I am comfortable to share are the following:

1. Our
relationship has its ups and downs but I have NEVER been physically or knowingly emotionally abusive towards my estranged husband. I vehemently deny the allegations of criminal acts towards him and would like to clear my name of that defamation. What I am going to state however is that we had one altercation in which I had to defend myself and both of use were physically hurt by the other. I am at this stage not at liberty  to dive deeper into the details but can state that he is not a victim in this situation.

2. I have been accused of sabotaging his efforts to be financially independent and can confirm that I have never made a concerted effort to block his opportunities. In fact, I have encouraged, I have even through my own channels petitioned for opportunities for him to make money through my networks and I've amplified some of the work he's done through his campaigns.

3. There have been publications of stories related to our sex life and a lot of what has been said is absolutely untrue. These are very personal private matters. and I would like to keep it as such.

Somizi further said that what is incredibly painful is that "as a person whose income is reliant on their reputation and public image, this campaign to smear my reputation has the potential to result in loss of income, I have already had to take leave from my places of employment in order to focus on this process. This wouldn't have had to happen if I wasn't being accused of things  didn't do"

He also said, "In as far as the divorce itself is concerned, my only aim is to have it finalized fairly and reasonably. I am taking what was said on record by my estranged husband very seriously and my legal team is taking steps to address those allegations through the processes afforded to us by the law.

"For now, this is as much as I am comfortable with saying to address all these issues. Please allow us the space and privacy to deal with what should be a very private mater"
