Opeyemi Falegan, the alienated lover of Nollywood actress Nkechi Blessing, has announced the withdrawal of his relationship with the actress alleging that the actress dated him only for his money and sex.
Falegan, who had gone live on his Instagram dissociated himself from the actress, saying he did not wish to be known for “notoriety or controversies.”
He stated that, “I have a name, that name is my pride. I want to be known as someone who added value to people and who will keep doing the work for people.
I’m not the husband of a lesbian, put respect on my name,”
“She came into my life for two things, money and sex. You know I have a foundation that takes care of widows and the less privileged which I started when I lost my dad,” Mr Falegan said.
“These were some of the reasons she came into my life. she knew I was a philanthropist, she knew I normally give these people alms within my capacity.”
Falegan said the actress was in dire need of a child and had depleted him financially.
He said: “When she came into my life, I had to make her understand that it’s not all about making babies. I said let me meet your people, and you should meet my people too.”
“It doesn’t work that way, be a proper wife but before you could be a proper wife you need to work on your pose, your pose is the way you talk to people, the way you carry yourself.
“She does not have good communication skills and she promised to work on those things,” he said.
He claimed that the actress wanted to keep up with her celebrity lifestyle riding on his wealth, and it had cost him a fortune.
The actress on her part however denied the allegation.
She took to her instagram page while responding to Falegan’s statement, depicting him as a “broke man who barely lasts seconds in bed.”
She also alleged that her ex-lover was “a jobless man who never supported her financially and expected her to feed him.”
Mr Falegan relayed an experience he encountered with the actress, which he said he found sour
“When I came to Lagos, I was very happy that I was coming to see my wife. Luckily she treated me with a very nice surprise which I loved but unfortunately after the party the next day, I couldn’t believe what happened and she insulted my whole life, she insulted my whole entirety.
“I felt within myself for how long will I keep managing a behaviour I think is inappropriate and unacceptable. So I told her, `I’m sorry, give me space, go and work on yourself.
Mr Falegan and Nkechi Blessing were believed to have been married when the actress posted her supposed wedding pictures with Falegan on his birthday, June 10, 2021 which made their fans believing they were married.
However, the relationship took a different ride on Wednesday, when the actress and her estranged lover took to social media calling each other unprintable names.
Falegan in his post on Friday, discredited the news that he was married to the actress.
When the actress was contacted, she dismissed his allegations, saying he did not even have a job.
The actress assented that they were not legally married but alleged that a lot of lies were being circulted by her ex-lover, a situation she said she can not cope with anymore.
“When we started our relationship, he told me that I should not have expectations meaning he doesn’t have money as such but he told me that he has enough to take care of himself and me. So, I said okay, because I wasn’t even looking for a rich man because I am not lazy either. But along the line, I discovered he doesn’t even have a job.
“I always tell people, I can date anybody and we would together build an empire. At first, he told me he was a Royal Air Force but I discovered it was all lies. He only bought the uniform and did a photoshoot with me.
“Initially, a lady hinted to me about all these, but I didn’t believe but when I discovered there were a lot of lies in the relationship, I had to take a walk.
“When I confronted him about the lies, he confirmed to be keeping things away from me which means there are other things he might be keeping away from me.
“Halfway into the relationship, I discovered three women have four kids for him. He met one in Ado-Ekiti, another in London and one other woman. I thought of all of these and I discovered that I can’t just continue.
While replying to her alleged bad communication skill, Nkechi confirmed that her ex-lover once complained about that.
“Truly he spoke about it. I don’t really know how to communicate gently especially when I am angry just like I am already getting angry now. But when somebody who claimed to love spoke about something like that one should try to change,” she said.
On the allegation that she leeched to Mr Falegan due to his philanthropic nature, Nkechi referred to the Instagram account of Unicef Nigeria (Unicef_Nigeria) where Mr Falegan was accused of trying to scam the international humanitarian body.
