Princess Shyngle who sat for an interview with Delay on the Delay Show, stated that all the time she was with Michael Essien she never knew he was married with two children. According to Princess Shyngle, she got to know that he is married after photos of them kissing went viral.
The actress who reacted to her recent statement that 99.9% of the guys she dated couldn’t satisfy her, said;
“Technically, no! What happened was I got to know that he was married and that was a deal breaker for me. Obviously, we were out in public which was a dumb move and I got contacted by some people that he was married and then I decided to google and I found out that he was really married,” she said.
“I dated him. I had no idea he was married. I had no reason to ask him because I never saw wedding ring on his finger and there were obviously no pictures of him and any woman on a social media so I assumed that he was a single man,” she told Delay.
