The songbird suffered physical abuse at the hands of the father of her first child, daughter Teja, and says Terry “could’ve killed” her if she hadn’t left him.

“I think he was stupid and cowardly for making me suffer, but if I was to hold a grudge against him for the rest of my life then I wouldn't be able to move on with my life and I'm so happy right now,” she said.

The abuse began when Jamelia was just 18. She used make-up and concealer to cover up the bruises and cuts.

“I would be going to an awards ceremony and performing on Top of the Pops, then I would be going home and getting beaten up.”

Jamelia decided she had had enough of the toxic relationship and left Terry 12 years ago after Teja’s birth.

She recently married to footballer Darren Byfield and they have a child together, Tiani (7).
