In a stunning breakdown of Uganda’s most celebrated musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone’s abusive side, his estranged wife Daniella Atim has filed for divorce.
The stunning mother of four has asked the Nakawa Chief Magistrate’s Court to annul her marriage on grounds of cruelty.
TheUgandan broke the story … in March and there was next to zero chance of reconciliation. As we told you, Chameloene is blaming personal friend and music promoter Ronald Sipapa for failing his marriage after finding out that Sipapa is giving Daniela upkeep money.
Now, Atim stated that in 2013 Chameleone started physically torturing her and sometimes he would go home drunk and beat her up without any reason. In order to hide the bruises and wounds on her face, she would allegedly go to hospitals for treatment, veil herself and sometimes run to her friends’ homes to hide from her husband. Daniella told court that her husband is ill-mannered and to protect herself from being killed, she has separated beds with him. Chameleone disrespects her before her children, is verbally abusive, constantly belittles her before them and physically abuses the children too.
That means her singer husband, Chameleone has been given two weeks to respond to a divorce petition number 72 of 2017, filed on April 18, 2017, through Okurut and Company Advocates and has been assigned to Margaret Aanyu.
Daniella has been a strong mother … for what that’s worth. They have been married since 2008.
