The actress and Andre’s father, Olakunle Churchill’s marriage, collapsed and ended in bitter mutual recrimination in 2017 less than two years after it was consummated.

Tonto, who was known to be a smoker and drinker, said she kicked the habits because her son could need blood one day and her blood may not be good for him.

“As a young girl growing up, I did make some mistakes with alcohol, cannabis and cigarettes but I’m older now and I’m above all of those things, I have a son now. I always tell people who ask me why I quit smoking  “What if my son needs blood tomorrow, what will I say to myself that I can’t give my son blood because I still want to indulge in cannabis”. I know it’s one of those things I did quit by the grace of God because it is not easy to desist from,” the 32-year-old actress told The Sun.
