Estranged Wife, Anita Drags Paul Okoye To Court Over Alleged Infidelity
Amid a divorce battle, legendary singer, Paul Okoye of the P-Square group, has been dragged to court by his estranged wife, Anita, over infidelity during their marriage.
Last year, the news about the sudden separation between Paul and his estranged wife, Anita, broke out with the latter reportedly citing unfaithfulness on the part of her husband.
Recall that the pair met in 2004 during their undergraduate days at the University of Abuja and got married on March 22, 2014, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Their union has produced three children; Andre — born in 2013 — and the twins, Nathan and Nadia, born in 2017.
Last year, Anita had filed for divorce. She requested the dissolution of her marriage with Paul, as per a partly redacted court document that surfaced and went viral on social media platforms.
According to the petition filed at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Anita cited “irreconcilable difference” as her reason, asking Paul to challenge it if he felt disgruntled.
But in another court document seen by The Nation on Friday, Anita filed a lawsuit against Paul Okoye at a High court in Abuja. She also revealed several chats with the singer and other women.

Anita had accused the singer of having an affair with one of their housemaids named Florence.
According to the leaked documents, it was stated that Paul Okoye sent his estranged wife and her sister packing after they discovered the affair between him and the housemaid.
It was also stated that the singer boasted about it, claiming it was a means to clip his wife’s wings so she could have no one else to lean on.
Anita equally alleged that Paul Okoye showed little interest in his kid’s upbringing, and barely participated in training them.
She added that he backed out of an undertaking by failing to give her brand, TannkCo, a space in the mall to which she contributed N10m for the purchase of the land and the building of the mall. These, she listed, as her reasons for filing a lawsuit.
Sex Crimes: Singer R. Kelly Sentenced To 30 Years In Prison
Embattled R&B singer, R. Kelly, was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday for recruiting and trapping teenagers and women for sex.
Judge Ann Donnelly handed down the term in the Brooklyn federal court nearly a year after the 55-year-old Kelly was convicted by a New York jury.
“The verdict is in: R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years,” the US attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York said in a tweet.
The prosecutors had urged the court to put the “I Believe I Can Fly” artist behind bars for at least 25 years, saying he still “poses a serious danger to the public.”
In September, the fallen superstar was found guilty on all nine charges he faced, including the most serious of racketeering.
“His actions were brazen, manipulative, controlling and coercive. He has shown no remorse or respect for the law,” prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo.

Kelly’s lawyers called for a lighter sentence with a maximum of approximately 17 years.
The sentence comes just over a month before jury selection is due to start in Kelly’s separate, long-delayed federal trial in Chicago on August 15.
In that case, Kelly and two of his former associates are alleged to have rigged the singer’s 2008 pornography trial and hid years of sexual abuse of minors.
The musician who once dominated R&B also faces prosecution in two other state jurisdictions.
