‘I did not take Fathia to court’ – Actor, Saheed Balogun denies suing estranged wife

Saheed Fathia

Following reports that he had taken legal action against his estranged wife, actor, Saheed Balogun has said that there’s no truth to the story.

The star was said to have taken his ex-wife, Fathia Balogun to court because she refused to drop his last name.

Mr. Balogun denied the reports via a statement in which he also said that the interview he granted was taken out of context and misused.

The Telegraph reports:

In his statement, Saheed said he did not appreciate the false stories circulating and that he would appreciate his private life being left alone.

According to the statement, “If a “news story” begins with the phrase ‘according to unconfirmed reports’ and the affected stakeholders did not confirm such reports, is the story really newsworthy?

“Punch called me about a personal issue (about a previous marriage) that I have no knowledge of. My response to them is the same response I have said times without number to all unconfirmed, untrue and other rubbish stories of the like: I, Saidi Balogun, am focusing on my work. I am married to my work and my work is all I know.

“When I told this to Punch, they at least printed what I said. But, they used a completely different headline that has no basis in fact, which they admitted to themselves via their failed effort to provide evidence or confirmation of the rumour.”

“One “second-hand blogger” not only copied and pasted the story, but added their own elaboration equally as unconfirmed and unrooted in fact as the original article. This unfair, biased, and disgraceful style of the bloggers, who think they are journalists has affected me in the past.

“I premiered ‘You Or I’ on July 7th, 2013 and the same blogger said I was getting married that day. When July 7th came around, countless dignitaries including a Governor and foreign visitors showed the whole world I indeed did a premiere by honouring my invitation.

“Abeg o, as Saidi Balogun, keep my personal life which you know nothing about out of the public eye and concentrate on the work I do that and many credible people respect me for.”
