Reports surfaced recently that actor, Saheed Balogun had taken legal action against his ex-wife, Fathia, over her continued use of his last name.
Saheed reportedly disclosed this during an interview but when the news spread, he said he had been misquoted.
Well Fathia has said her piece, and she says that Saheed indeed took her to court over the issue.
According to online reports:
Fathia is now accusing him of lying to the press, because according to her, he indeed dragged her to court over the use of the name. Below is a statement released by her publicist, Seun Oloketuyi
“Our attention has been drawn to media reports where Saheed Balogun claims that he knows nothing about the media reports that he is in court with our client Fathia Balogun over his decision to ask his former wife to stop using his name.
“We will like to put the records straight. The case is in court and our lawyers are on it to ensure that our client retains the name. We won’t be saying much at this time but we believe that adults should be bold and mature enough to take responsibility for their actions and not do something and say something else.
“We won’t say anything further on this matter until judgment is given as this case resumes hearing.”
