Zeinab Harake has opened up about her breakup with Ex-Battalion member Skusta Clee or Daryl Borja Ruiz.

In an interview with Toni Gonzaga for the latter's Toni Talks channel on YouTube, Zeinab revealed that the breakup all unfolded within a month and took a heavy toll on her mental health.

"Okay kami, like, okay. Masayang-masaya kami," the social media influencer began in her interview.

"May mga away kami mula January, pero away mag-asawa lang na akala ko, kapag nag-aaway kami, nagkakabati kami, okay na. Hindi pala!"

By March, Zeinab and Daryl's fights had reached a turning point. Even though Zeinab was pregnant with their second child, Daryl would leave her alone.

The vlogger continued: "March, doon na talaga na parang lagi na niya akong iniiwan. Talagang dumadating sa point na nagmamakaawa ako sa kanya.

"Alam niyang buntis ako, ha, kay Moon. Hirap po talaga pagbubuntis ko kay Moon. Medyo maselan. Talagang first month pa lang dinudugo na ako. Ganoon na yung kalagayan ko, yung depression ko.

"Nagmamakaawa ako na huwag niya ako iiwan kasi lagi niya ako iniiwanan sa bahay... ikaw na yung nagbaba ng pride. 'Dito ka na lang, huwag mo akong iwan.' Mga ganoon.

"Ginawa ko iyon, 'tapos dumating yung time na nagkaroon na ng separation. Isang buwan na tumakbo lahat yung gulo. Isang buwan lang talaga kasi talagang nasira ulo ko."

THE FINAL STRAW

Daryl left their house, leaving Zeinab and their one-year-old daughter Bia behind.

Devastated, Zeinab was desperate to keep her family together. She called Daryl's parents and asked for their help.

"Inaayos ko yung pamilya namin. Iniisip ko si Bia, hindi na yung sarili ko," Zeinab said.

With his parents' intervention, Daryl did return, but this marked the end of their relationship.

"So pumunta siya, bumalik siya. Binalik niya yung ibang mga gamit niya. Okay na. 'Tapos, parang merong day na binigay sa akin si God na huwag akong sumama sa kanya. Na may pupuntahan siya, huwag ako sumama sa kanya.

"Naiwan ako sa bahay. Doon ko nahuli sa laptop."

Daryl's laptop had the messages tab open. While Zeinab didn’t see all of the messages, some conversations seemed to be with another woman.

Still, Zeinab noted that those messages weren’t the worst part.

Why Daryl wasn't invited to Bia's birthday

At this point in the interview, Zeinab took the time to clarify why she didn't invite the rapper to their daughter's first birthday.

The 23-year-old content creator said, "Ito po, gusto ko lang din iklaro kung bakit hindi ko siya inimbita nung birthday ni Bia. Wala talaga siyang pake kay Moon, wala siya pakialam kay Bia.

"Hinahalikan niya anak niya habang gumagawa siya ng mga kung anu-anong bagay na hindi naman dapat na-a-apply doon sa bata."

Zeinab tried to give Daryl a chance to confess, but he denied it at first. Two days later, he revealed everything to Zeinab and that served as her final wake-up call.

"Talagang kapag naaalala ko… nandidiri ako sa sarili ko. Sa baby ko, naaawa ako kay Bia. Hindi ko alam saan ako lulugar."

Addressing Daryl in the interview, Zeinab said, "Hindi ako perpektong asawa, pero hindi iyon reason para ganunin mo ako. Sa lahat ng ginawa ko para sa iyo, sa lahat ng pagtatanggol ko—pinatawad kita!

"Hindi karupukang tanga o scripted iyon. Pinatawad kita nang totoong buhay, ng totoong puso ko... Buong ako iyon, e. As in lahat ng power ko, energy ko, ideas ko, yung sarili ko, kung sino ako nakilala nila.

"Lahat yun, isinantabi ko para sa pamilya ko."

LESSON LEARNED

When asked what changed between her and Daryl, Zeinab said the rapper blamed it on her: "[Sabi niya,] 'Nagbago kasi iyang si Zeinab mula nung nagkaanak kami. Hindi na siya yung Zeinab ko noon.'

"E, kaya naman kasi ako nagbago, pinili ko magpaka-asawa, pinili ko magpaka-nanay kaya ganito na itsura ko. 'Tapos laging ina-ano na, 'Ang payat-payat mo, ganito-ganyan.' Ganoon yung mga naririnig ko.

"Kaya kapag tinitignan ko lalo sarili ko sa salamin, 'Ano ba? Ganito ka na lang ba, Zebby? Talaga bang sasayangin mo lahat kasi ito na? Ito na talaga dapat ang tama kasi pamilyado ka na?'

"Pero nung huli na-realize ko, hindi, hindi pala. Puwede ka naman pala maging masaya habang may partner ka, mali lang talaga nakasama kong tao."

Toward the end of the interview, Zeinab hoped her daughter Bia would be kept out of the issue.

"Ako, bilang nanay talaga, nasaktan ako na pati buhay niya, sinang-alang-alang ng tatay niya dahil lang sa karantaduhan ng tatay niya.

"Hindi deserve ni Bia ng ganung tatay kasi hindi ko ganoon pinapalaki yung anak ko."

Zeinab added, "Hindi pagkakamali na nagkabalikan kami [ni Daryl] ulit. Hindi iyon pagkakamali, walang pagkakamali sa lahat ng iyon. Ang nagkamali dito iyong talagang hindi nakuntento."

What's her wish for daughter Bia moving forward?

Zeinab answered: "Lumaki siyang strong. Ayoko siya maging kagaya ko na sobrang soft-hearted. Yung mabilis mauto, magpatawad, ganyan.

"Ayoko kasi masasaktan at masasaktan siya, kasi marami talagang taong hindi mo alam kung totoo ba yung pinapakita sa iyo sa umpisa."
