We all know how Lillian Muli dumped her baby daddy Jared Nevaton, after all, it was all over social media, but many of us don’t know how the two met and fell in love.

In a candid interview with a local station, Lillian revealed that when she met Jared, they started out as friends just like she did with her first husband Moses Kanene.

Their friendship gradually blossomed into something bigger, a relationship. After they became official, the Citizen TV news anchor was a bit hesitant to become ‘Instagram Official’ because that comes with drama of its own. But she eventually introduced him in a post-kiss photo where the couple was smiling from ear to ear.

“I chose to keep my relationship very private for a long time because I didn’t want to go through that if you are together you are together and if you break up there is drama. I just wanted a relationship that would be mine and not necessarily Kenya’s or the Diasporas. I didn’t want to have everyone all up in my business. Eventually, it was obvious that I was in a new relationship. We met, we were friends for a long time and eventually that evolved into something beautiful,” she revealed on Talk Central.

Weak Moment

Speaking on dumping Jared on Instagram during Christmas Eve, Lillian disclosed that she had a ‘weak’ moment and is now looking for someone to handle her social media pages following the outburst.

“Some of the downsides of what it is that we do and how we handle our social media is that you can have a weak moment, you are human, you put something out there that you can’t take back and people would jump on that and ride with it. I would say right now I will get people to handle my social media because unfortunately, I have learnt that not everything comes across as you would want to come across,” Lillian said.

She also added that it’s important to take responsibly for what one does on social media and also make peace with the situation if you make a mistake.
