Meurer has been in the news ever since Churchill introduced her as his wife last Monday on the occasion of her birthday.
She has also stirred controversy from some Nigerians who criticised her for marrying Churchill after she had earlier denied being in a relationship with the businessman, whom she referred to as a “brother and mentor”.
Amid the drama that has continued to unfold, Meurer took to her Instagram page to share a video wherein she refuted claims of ever dating him before his divorce.
“Mr Churchill’s failed marriage has nothing to do with me. The same way you guys read and heard online that I was the reason for his broken marriage was the same way I read and heard online that I was the reason for his broken marriage,” she said.
“Before then, I never knew that the relationship I had with him before he got married was a problem after he got married. I didn’t get the memo. No one confronted me. I was never aware of such.
“Whatever it is that happened in his marriage, I had no knowledge of. The same way you guys read online of what happened is the same way I read online what happened.
“I mean, I knew him. Why would I wait for him to get married before I would start playing hide and seek? It doesn’t make sense.”
Commenting on her relationship with Churchill prior to his divorce, the actress reiterated that he was like a brother to her even though they are not related by blood.
“I did say that Mr Churchill was like a brother to me but he is not my blood. My mother didn’t give birth to him. We don’t share the same father. That statement he is like a brother to me simply meant he is family. Mr Churchill has always been there for my family and I and it has always been that way,” she added.
She noted that the marriage happened according to the will of God and not by her doing.
“After his marriage crisis and after he got divorced, I was still there. I never left. Why will accusations and people talking make me leave? Leave to where? I never left. I never abandoned him,” Meurer said.
“Gradually days passed, months passed, years passed, life took its course. Destiny happened. What I was accused of became my reality and my fate. What would be would be. You cannot change it.
“You cannot force it. I am not God. I mean, it just happened. I let God’s will take place in my life. I never forced myself on him. It just happened that he became more than a brother. He became a lifetime partner.”
