Nkechi Blessing, the Nollywood actress, and Opeyemi Falegan, her ex-lover, have resumed their fight on social media — a few months after their controversial split.
The politician, who was widely assumed to be the film star’s husband, announced their separation in April.
Since then, the pair have been in the public eye, occasionally engaging each other in a war of words.
Their latest drama started on Thursday when Blessing, in an interview with TVC, said she never loved Falegan.
The actress disclosed that she only dated the politician to get back at another ex-boyfriend.
“No, I don’t love him anymore. The thing is he was the one that loves me more so the time I was trying to level up to the love he said he has for me, that was was where he messed up,” she said.
“I was going to keep this for my YouTube channel but let me just break everything down and I wouldn’t want anyone to make the mistake that I made. I recently broke out from a relationship, my ex that lives in America, and in the heat of the break up when we were still trying to fix things, he started posting a girl covering her face.
“I realised there is this man asking me out, okay fine man but in all ramifications of the type of people I would like to date he isn’t one of them, you get it. So, that was me trying to use him to get back at my ex and I landed in a relationship. You get it? so it was just likeness, it wasn’t love. that’s it. A lot of ladies make this kind of mistake that they end up marrying who they don’t love.”
In his reaction, Falegan asked Blessing to “stop mentioning my name”.
He further said he has no excuse to get back with her, adding that she has gone out of “content” and now “sounds really empty”.
“Attaching my name to yours is dysfunctional, just stop mentioning my name abeg. Someone should please give her content, she sounds really empty now,” he wrote.
Blessing, however, fired back at the politician, saying she only used him as a “reference” to young ladies.
She also claimed that Falegan has remained “stagnant” since she left him.
“I just used you as a reference so ladies out there won’t make the same mistake I made, so stop feeling important bros. 1 to 10 you are nowhere close,” she wrote.
