It started like a rumour that the once rosy union between controversial actress Tonto Dikeh and Oladunni Churchill was heading for the rocks especially when a concerned fan wrote an open letter to the couple stating that there is trouble in the marriage and ending it with words of advice.
The actress has come out to confirm that her 17-month-old is over, at least for now.
There were unconfirmed reports online earlier today that there was allegedly another woman in the picture. Tonto, through her reply reveals that all is not well in with her marriage and that she moved on. She has also removed her husband’s name, ‘Churchill’ from her Iinstagram page that further confirms speculations that their marriage is indeed in crisis.
She also deleted the, “Yummy wife/mummy” tag she put on her Instagram.
According to findings which was supported by the fan’s open letter, the actress’ husband, Mr. Churchill is allegedly having an affair with his PA and had gone on a 3-week holiday with her in an African country.
At the moment, there’s no official statement from the couple, but, the actress’ reply which is below says it all
“Dear ‘concerned’ fan, Good day.
How are you and your family? My regards, love and greetings to them.
Now to address a little bit of your letter, firstly I say I do appreciate your concern. Then I move on to say thank you. When a woman leaves her husband, she takes her child because absolutely nothing else matters to her but the child. This is what I did and I happily give all access for his father to see him. Now my question to you is that did your source also tell you that he has never called for once to Ask how his son is doing? I will admit, I personally blocked his access to me for the sake of my emotional stability. But nonetheless he has the nannys no, my assistants contact,my part time helps number, and many other mediums of reaching the son your source claims I “took away”. He could use all possible mediums wisely if he wished to.
Secondly I will let you go on the ill talk on smoking as I would love to believe you were just sent and ignored my drug test result or you never even saw it in the first place..
As an acclaimed “concerned fan” I expect you to pray and not to indirectly throw “concerned” shades..
What goes on in my marriage and home is my personal life, i’m grateful for all the years of support you all have been giving me but when it comes to the matters of the heart have enough respect to let us go thru our moments alone.. Like I said earlier your prayers for wisdom on both parties wld be more appreciated. No one knows what goes on behind close doors…I chose to make you believe and see what I wanted you all to see in order to protect even those that did not deserve protection. My dear friend that’s called marriage!!! God bless you immensely for even thinking about my family, God has never failed, God never sleeps nor slumbers, He is a just God. He never brings us this far to leave us, We will be ok.. Once again thank you so much my “concerned” friend and have a blessed day!!!”
Meanwhile this is the open letter from the concerned fan…
My dear Churchill, if stories flying around is true, I beg you to retrace your steps. Do not destroy your marriage because of another woman. No matter how beautiful or attractive that woman is, it doesn’t worth destroying your marriage. If she has given you love portion to make you lose your senses, I declare you free this minute, in Jesus mighty name. If you are just being carried away out of your own stupidity, I pray God almighty to grant you wisdom this minute in Jesus name. No woman is worth destroying your marriage for. Please please and please stop this. Mend your marriage. There is nothing as a perfect marriage. You both have got to make it work. The devil is attacking marriages these days. This explains the high rate of divorce. There are unconfirmed rumours that you have been married before to Bimbo Coker and divorced in 2012. Though no news of having a child with her. Please don’t ever dream of marrying a third woman or having children from different women. It is not a rosy experience. Ask 2face and 9ice, they will tell you their regrets. So retrace your steps before it is too late. Stick to the woman who has a son for you now. The woman you legally married. Reject that devil that has come in form of a pretty woman. Reject it and bind her out of your life forever. ” Churchill ”You came into limelight after marrying Tonto Dike. Before now nobody knew you, even with your billions. It is one thing to have money, it is another thing to be popular and be on the pages of the newspaper every day. Nobody knew chief Adeleke even though he was an oil magnet, until his son Davido became a household name. Listen to me ‘Big Church’, if you ruin your marriage with Tonto Dike, your five minutes fame will be over. If you doubt me ask Philip Ehiagwina, Ini Edo’s ex-husband and Almaroof, Funke Akindele’s ex. Since their marriages to their celebrity wives collapsed, their 5 minutes fame vanished. They are no longer in the news. They have gone back to where they belong. Take it or leave it. if you allow your marriage collapse because of what is under another woman’s laps, you will go back to where you belong. Be wise.’ To Tonto Dikeh, all I can say to you my ‘yummy mummy’, is to forgive your Mr. X. Forgive your King Kong and mend your marriage. Don’t let the hurt in your heart destroy what both of you have shared. Don’t forget you have a son together. My wish is for both of you to have many more sons and daughters. Fight for your marriage and don’t let any strange woman take what rightfully belongs to you. I applaud you for apologising to Mercy Johnson. It takes courage to do that. This is sign that you now understand life better. Close your ears to all those criticizing your actions. The likes of Victoria Inyama are just jealous. Mercy Johnson also deserves a standing ovation with the maturity with which she handled it. She earned my respect.
