DJ Creme de la Creme has for the first time addressed his breakup with his fiancée Denise Njuguna, with whom he has two children.

They'd been together for 14 years and he even proposed to her in March this year and referred to her as his wife.

In July, however, the father of two shared a message on social media suggesting their union is on the rocks.

Speaking to Word Is, Creme confirmed they have separated, citing unresolved issues.

"It is the past. We are not together for now, but we are working on things," he said.

"Our main agenda is that our kids are secure and are okay. I can't define our relationship, but at the end of the day, we are parents and adults who can handle our stuff," he said.

Creme denied infidelity and being broke are the reasons for their breakup.

"My wife and I don't fight about women, it was never about that. If we ever fought about women, I would have been affected after the last scandal I had," he said.

"It was also not about me being broke. If my wife was to leave me because I'm broke she would have not even settled with me since I knew her when I had nothing."

Creme said they are respectful good 'pals' when around each other. "We are just co-parenting," he said.

"I have mentors I am talking to coz you know if you are in a crazy relationship, a part of you dies, and so your main focus becomes to work hard to become whole again."

A while ago, Creme sent another message that suggested he was not accessing his kids. Responding to that, Creme said things were tough at the time.

"I was not talking to the kids since things were a bit too hot and we had agreed we give each other space. I now have access to my kids but there was a period it was bad, let me be honest. I am glad things have turned around."

During that time, Creme said he worked on his relationship with God and became prayerful.

"It was crazy but on the other side, it strengthened my faith in God. Coz even right now, talking to my kids is a prayer that I had every day. I have learned to trust in God; I was so vulnerable and I would have messed."

He thanked fans who sent him encouraging messages, which he says held him down.

"Never give up on love coz it happens to people and at different times," he said.

"Time heals and brings a lot of things to perspective. I did not understand when she left."

Early this year, DJ Crème took to Instagram to announce he had finally proposed to his then-girlfriend after being together for 14 years. 

He said he wanted to love her forever.
