“It is rather pathetic that yesterday the 12th day of March 2021, I discovered that my photos were attached to the marriage news of the Alaafin and has since been heavily publicized by blogs and news pages across various social media platforms.
“I trended wrongly on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as I was taken out to be a person who left her husband to be the Alaafin’s 13th wife. These false posts are all over the Internet and have amassed an unquantifiable number of views by Nigerians, including my friends& family.
“However, at the risk of not joining issues with these bloggers who have already achieved their nefarious aim of bringing my name to disrepute, I am putting out this statement, categorically debunking these rumors to be false, unfounded and malicious as this is clearly the work of mischief makers, who would stop at nothing to malign my image,” she tweeted.
Nwadike also confirmed that she had split from her husband, saying she is still suffering the aftermath of a failed marriage.
She, however, lambasted her ex-husband and his lawyers, saying they are deliberately stalling the divorce proceedings currently before a law court.
Nwadike lamented that she has been embarrassed by the media reports and trolled by persons on social media, especially over the claim that she purportedly left her husband to marry the Alaafin.
7/The person in the picture is my estranged husband from a failed marriage, the aftermath of which, I am still suffering till today. These past few months have been a turbulent ride for me, evident by this current false news and defamatory posts. pic.twitter.com/YkLirvgB2j
“I have also despite this instant news, received other numerous defamatory posts/comments on my Facebook account, people have sent private inbox messages to my friends, and even fake social media accounts have been created to troll and harass me, which made me deactivate my Facebook page, just so I can have a semblance of peace. Sadly, reasons for these acts, merely orchestrated to malign and dent my image remains inexplicable to me.
“It is rather unfathomable as to why I am being singled out to be diminished in the eyes of Nigerians even whilst still going through the emotional and painful rigors of an extremely messy divorce proceeding, which is still pending in court, and wherein my estranged husband and his Lawyers have applied every dilatory tactic to stall the conclusion of the case for reasons I wouldn’t want to state now.
“Regrettably, these false and rather demeaning publications have now perturbed and created an unnecessarily traumatic environment amongst my family, friends and colleagues who found it very hard to harbor the believe that I purportedly jilted my estranged husband in order to marry the Alaafin of Oyo,” she tweeted.
Nwadike thanked all those who helped her debunk the reports, saying she is grateful to them for “protecting my vulnerabilities as a Nigerian woman who is prone to ridicule and shame to the highest bidders.”.
She added that she is consulting with her legal team over the next course of action following the numerous media reports on her purported marriage.
