Speaking about her personal life for the first time in an interview with Mc Jessy, Maureen said she was a prayerful woman and that’s what keeps her going. She also revealed that she was born again.

“I DO NOT THINK PEOPLE KNOW I AM BORN AGAIN AND VERY GODLY. WHAT PEOPLE ALSO DO NOT KNOW IS I HAVE AN ARMY. WHEN I AM BROKEN AND CRYING AT 1 AM THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WILL SHOW UP AND PRAY WITH ME. IF IT WASN’T FOR PRAYERS, JESSY I’D BE DEAD RIGHT NOW. AND NOT DEAD IN AN ACCIDENT BUT BECAUSE OF ALL THE STRESS I HAVE TAKEN IN. THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER,” SHE SAID.

Speaking about her failed relationship with her baby daddy, she said all hasn’t been well and at some point, she contemplated suicide.

“I WILL GET PERSONAL. I WAS ON ANTI-DEPRESSANTS SINCE SEPTEMBER 2019. I WAS SUICIDAL I WAS GONE! I ATTEMPTED TWICE. YOU REACH A PLACE AND YOU’RE LIKE WHAT ELSE? IT IS THE WORST PLACE TO BE AT. IT TOOK MY ENTIRE SUPPORT SYSTEM. I AM IN A CLIQUE OF SIX GIRLS AND TWO ARE MY LEFT AND RIGHT, THEY WILL EVEN COME AND TAKE MY KIDS, ONE EACH FOR ME TO CATCH A BREAK. MY ENTIRE SUPPORT SYSTEM HAS MADE ME STOP CRYING TEARS OF PAIN THIS DAYS I CRY TEARS OF JOY,” SHE NARRATED.

Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.

Maureen, who’s a lawyer by profession revealed that her family was devastated by what people were saying about her.

“I OWE ALL MY GRACE TO GOD. I USED TO BE SO ANGRY IN THE PAST YEAR, THEN I REMEMBER GOD IS SLOW TO ANGER. THE OTHER DAY MY MUM CALLED ME CRYING, MY FAMILY IS DEVASTATED. SHE CALLED ME CRYING AND TOLD ME I AM HER BABY AND SHE KNOWS WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH BUT I SHOULD LET GO AND LET GOD. I WAS NOT OKAY. I WAS LIKE IF MY FAMILY IS FEELING THIS WAY I WAS WONDERING HOW CAN I BE THERE FOR THEM. SEEING YOUR MUM CRY IS THE WORST THING. IMAGINE YOUR MUM CRYING BECAUSE OF WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOU,” SHE SAID.
