Oladunni Churchill, Tonto Dikeh’s estranged husband, has through his representatives revealed that he will be annulling his marriage with the Nollywood actress after the chat between Churchill’s mother and Tonto was leaked on Wednesday, 21 June, 2017.
“All traditional necessities regarding his traditional marriage, including payment of the bride price, were met.
Mr. Churchill has stated officially that he has all intentions of annulling his marriage to his wife.” His representatives said.
This was stated after Tonto had accused her mother-in-law of witchcraft. She had also brought to light that she had paid her own bride price, and claimed that she had seen her husband touching his mother in an inappropriate way.
An obviously angry Tonto Dikeh in the chat says, “I have watched you bring in dirty charms and fetish item into my home. I have watched your son touch you inappropriately. I have witnessed darkness with you all and I just wonder what kind of woman you are.
Leave me alone Mama Kunle, leave me alone I beg of you. Am done with your family, all I need is my safety and that of my child.”
This happened after Lara Olubo, an OAP, who also is a niece of Olakunle Churchill’s mother revealed a message between Tonto and her mother-in-law.
On the other hand, Bimbo, Churchill’s first wife commented on Lara’s post claiming that her ex-husband’s family are liars. “Smh, this people will never stop lying or even change from their evil ways… soon I know your can of worms will be open Kunle and you mom..Wicked family filled with evil thoughts and evil plans. Someday people will know the real you kunle,just can’t wait for that day to come.”
In an interview which was released in March 2017, the actress had claimed that she was a victim of domestic violence during her marriage. Tonto had said, “The domestic violence is real. It’s real. How I lived to suffer it and go through it over and over again I do not understand.
“A lot of people have blamed me. A lot of people have said a lot of things. I have read a lot of things. I stayed back in my marriage not because of my child but because I believe you cannot be abused or you cannot leave a child where there is abuse and you claim you are doing it for your child. No. I stayed because I was doing it for myself. I stayed because I loved my husband with all of my heart.”
She also accused her estranged husband of adultery and more.
