Another blow was dealt to Colin Graham the NDP perspective ESG candidate on Tuesday, as the ex-girlfriend, Iyah Jacobs, called in on live radio to speak about the ongoing saga.
In her call to hot97, Jacobs said the post made on Facebook by her about their former abusive relationship was to ensure that Graham received some sort of intervention.
She said attacking Graham or speaking about it from a political standpoint would not solve the issue.
Jacobs said she could understand why many persons in public are currently crucifying her; she said a lot of information was missing, so speculation was rife.
The ex-girlfriend stated that she went to Barbados for a vacation, noting that the Prime Minister did not send her on holiday or to Carifseta, but noted since she was on the island it was not an issue attending.
Jacobs said the vacation was not premeditated, and she was not paid by any one, as many are now speculating.
Jacobs said she needs help. However, the root problem is “Colin” he really and truly needs a lot of help.
She further pointed out that at this moment there is a lot of tension in the relationship. However, she would not deny her feelings for Graham, but unless there is some sort of help and restoration, even being friends would have to be put on hold.
Jacobs said just as how this truth took its time and played out, the relationship may have to go that route as well.
When asked by radio host Chris Jones about some of the signs that abuse was entering the relationship, Jacobs said; “ well there were a lot of insecurities, a lot of accusations, even friendships were accused whether innocently or not”.
Jacobs said while honesty is an excellent thing, she would encourage persons to be careful with whom they share details of their life with because in most cases they would end up using it in the negative.
