Tonto Dikeh’s husband, Dr. Olakunle Churchill has opened up on his marriage crisis.
Churchill debunked claims he has a female PA and having a ‘mutual’ relationship with popular inter-sexual cross-dressing, bleaching advocate, born Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky.
A few hours ago, news made the rounds on the social media that the actress’ husband was in a relationship with Bobrisky.
Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, bared the claims in a post which he later deleted, alleging that Churchill ‘has relationship with Bobrisky and Swanky Jerry – Jeremiah Ogbodo, Tonto’s fashion stylist ‘rumoured to be gay.’
But in a chat with Encomium, the father of one said, “Truly, I did not see it posted because I’m not a social media person, but got wind of it later.
“It sincerely beats my imagination to think of such relationship.
“Well, I don’t know Bobrisky but got to know Swanky Jerry through my wife.
“I believe whoever my wife likes as a friend, I also take as a family friend.
“Am too busy to think of such unpleasant issues, let alone cooking up defense.”
Speaking further, he said he hasn’t been able to reach his son who he misses so much because Tonto Dikeh won’t pick his calls.
He said, “Every family has its ups and downs but I would not want to talk about my family.”
He addressed claims that he left home and is allegedly having an affair with his PA.
He said, “Well, it’s funny to me, because I don’t have female personal Assistant, My PA is Mr. Paul, who has been working with me over the years. Besides, it was a sponsored blackmail.”
On whether his wife caused uproar in his mother’s home and reportedly pushed her down and broke everything in her house within 2 hours due to her ‘marijuana reactions’, Churchill said, “These issues are private to me and my family.
“Rumours going around she moved out due to domestic violence from me, I wonder where they got such gist from.
“I don’t believe my wife will say that, besides I frown against such even my foundation preach against domestic violence in some of our charity awareness campaigns.
“It is obvious that all these channeled attacks are targeted to drag my image and what I believe in to the mud.
“Well, the truth is that I have never raised my hands against my wife.
“I have evidence of CCTV Cameras in my mum’s house when this happened. It can be replayed if you want us to go that far.”
Asked how he perceived all these happening in his family, he noted, “I see nothing in it, it’s a phase of life; since it does not affect my cheques and savings.
“But I truly want to call on bloggers or social media addicts to verify facts before assuming.
“Every marriage has good and bad moments; it’s just unfortunate that I recently discovered that the alleged marriage instability is making headlines on some media platforms.
“Please Tonto Dikeh fans and well-wishers take it easy on her, guess she is still adjusting to motherhood. With time, it will be well.”
The couple’s son, King Andre will be one year old tomorrow.
Churchill, responding to that said, “Oh! My son, I sure miss him so much. I have planned a worthwhile birthday party for him with friends and family members but it’s sad to say that all effort to reach him proved abortive, and this is affecting my business and emotions.
“The mum won’t pick calls and the nanny.
“Our son has been with the mother and not at home for now.
“I truly, should not be granting this interview if this is all about my family.
“I am very optimistic that the family will unite together for King Andrea birthday even though channels to reach my wife are temporarily off,” he added.
Recall that the 17-month-old marriage of Tonto to the philanthropist was rumoured to be heading for the rocks after news spread on the social media that there was allegedly another woman in the picture.
The said female PA, Rosaline Meurer, accused of having sex with Tonto’s husband had responded to the allegations,
In the midst of the ‘rumour’, the light-skinned actress had confirmed her marriage crash while responding to questions from her fans on Instagram.
