In her divorce statement, Debroah added that while she was confronting Varney regarding his mistress, he said that he was not in love with her. "When I was with you, I did not think about her, and when I was with her, I did not think about you," she claimed he replied.
Therefore, she reasoned that he cheated on her, not because of love but because he could do it, as reported by The Sun.
