Kenyan socialite Amber Ray recently made headlines when she alluded to facing a challenging time in her personal life. While rumors swirled about the cause of her distress, close friends disclosed that she had sought medical help following an assault.
Now, her husband, Kennedy Rapudo, has publicly acknowledged the incident and issued an apology, shedding light on the situation.
In a series of Instagram stories, Kennedy Rapudo addressed the recent speculation surrounding his marriage.
He began, “There’s been so much activity concerning my marriage in the public domain these last couple of days. Like any other marriage, we’ve had our moments of ups and downs, and ours isn’t perfect either.”
Acknowledging the incident, Kennedy revealed, “Yes, we’ve separated over an event that happened while we were both intoxicated on the night of [October] 13. It’s an event that should have never happened, and I feel very sorry and deeply regret that it happened, mostly to the person that I swore to protect and love with all that I had.”
Kennedy Rapudo went on to emphasise that this isolated incident does not define his character. “What caught me by surprise is the manner in which the writer chose her words! ‘One single isolated’ incident doesn’t mean that I’m a violent person. I’ve never been and I never will be! I’m raising two beautiful girls, and I will never advocate for any domestic violence or Gender-Based Violence. I am man enough to admit when I’m on the wrong, and on this ‘1’ particular incident, I was on the wrong, but it doesn’t change who I am.”
He concluded with a heartfelt apology to Amber Ray, saying, “To the mother of my beautiful daughter, I am deeply sorry and sincerely regret my action in that moment of weakness. XOXO.”
Meanwhile, Amber Ray opened up about the tumultuous relationship, shedding light on her challenges. “The love and unity that a marriage should stand on becomes blurred, and eventually, it leaves you drained,” Amber Ray confessed.
“I have been in that environment for a while now, and my peace and safety have made it impossible for me to stay.”
Amber Ray hinted at difficult times ahead, stating, “I know it will be a long couple of days/weeks for me, but I’d rather be at peace inside than project a false haven on the outside. I’d rather speak my truth than let gossip tarnish what I have built for me and my family thus far. Things in my household have not been okay… but they will be. My family will be okay. And eventually, I will be okay.”
